During the Supergirl season 2 finale, another DC superhero made a surprise visit to The CW as Wonder Woman aired yet another “super” fun TV spot.
Supergirl wrapped its season 2 finale on Monday night, which saw Teri Hatcher’s villainous Rhea confront Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl once and for all in the battle for Earth. For the past several episodes, Rhea plotted a massive takeover that would lead to Earth becoming New Daxam. Luckily, Supergirl was able to stop it.
But she did have a lot of help.
Though absent for a majority of the season, Calista Flockhart returned to Supergirl as Cat Grant in an episode that also saw the return of Lynda Carter, who debuted earlier in the season as the fictional President of the United States on Earth-38. (We also learned that she is an alien, which means in some twisted connected universe, Wonder Woman is an alien.)
And while the final episode had its moments, one of the greatest minutes came courtesy of an entirely different DC property: Wonder Woman.
As in the Wonder Woman film that hits theaters in less than two weeks on June 2.
During a neat little scene obviously shot specifically for this spot, “These Boots Are Made for Walkin'” plays in the background as Lynda Carter, Chyler Leigh, Teri Hatcher and Melissa Benoist meet in a bar known specifically in the Supergirl universe as the place where alien encounters happen.
Toward the end, Teri Hatcher looks at Kara Danvers and says, “Nice boots.” But Kara isn’t wearing Chanel or any other spiffy get-up. She’s wearing Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman boots and gauntlets.
Afterward, we get a dope Wonder Woman fight scene that leads into a (not new) TV spot.
You can watch the entire thing below:
I’m not sure which part is weirder: The fact that she walked in as Supergirl, then changed into her civilian counterpart? Or Wonder Woman’s glowing boots? Well, those are actually awesome.
Obviously, the DCEU isn’t going to mix with The CW superhero shows anytime soon. But boy, it would be awesome if they did. It’s even more awesome that the folks at Warner Bros. agreed to put this together. It’s small but effective.
Wonder Woman opens in theaters on June 2.
