We still can’t believe this is happening. In a world with increasing stakes in established shared universes, and world-ending drama, it’s kind of nice to know the superhero genre is still used to pull stupid, ridiculous things like a musical crossover special.
In case you haven’t heard, in a couple months, The Flash and Supergirl will have a semi-two-part crossover special, wherein the characters will sing, Glee-style. I say “semi” because only the tail end of the March 20th episode of Supergirl will include the crossover aspects, and the rest of it will occur in the next episode of The Flash the following day — not unlike how the four-part Invasion special kicked off late last year.
We know, the Music Meister will be the villain of this episode ( a character that was voiced by Neil Patrick Harris and debuted in Batman: The Brave and the Bold animated series -- though whether or not he'll reprise the role is still up in the air), but apart from that, details have been sparse. A new report from EW now states that, in addition to leads Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist (who have histories on Glee) that Flash co-stars Jesse L. Martin (Joe West in the show, and former Broadway star in real life) and Carlos Valdes (Cisco) will be singing their hearts out. On the Supergirl side, Jeremy Jordan (Winn) will also be singing, but the roster isn’t restricted to those two shows. Legends of Tomorrow’s Victor Garber (Doctor Stein) and, of all people, John Barrowman (who plays Malcolm Merlyn).
If that’s not exciting enough, Avengers director Joss Whedon was rumored back in August to be helming the special, though there’s been no real word on whether or not the rumor is true since then.
