Sometime in the ’00s, I decided to watch every cartoon I could think of. I scoured through all the ’80s, ’90s and ’00s superhero toons, I watched a ton of anime, and I also was caught up with trippy late night Adult Swim shows. The Cartoon Network provided most of my viewing, and I found a gem of a DC Comics adaptation called Batman: The Brave and the Bold. While not a huge fan of musicals, I was captivated by one of the episodes featuring The Music Meister, a villain that through using song could control the actions of both heroes and villains.
A few years later, I was quite surprised to find out that he was voiced by none other than Neil Patrick Harris.
Now that we have 4 DC Comics shows to entertain us on the CW network, with a slew of obscure characters making the series, some on the interwebs have wondered if The Music Meister would make an appearance in the upcoming musical crossover, and if Harris would reprise the role. In an interview with IGN while promoting Netflix’s Lemony Snicketâ€™s A Series of Unfortunate Events he was asked if we could see him on the upcoming spring Flash/Supergirl crossover.
â€œIâ€™ve heard about it, but thatâ€™s as much as it has been,â€ Harris told IGN. â€œI mean, I did the Music Meister in a recording booth in L.A. â€¦ 15 years ago or something, yâ€™know, and it comes out a year later. [â€¦] It was a fun episode, it was a good thing to day.But Iâ€™ve heard that Joss [Whedon] is involved in some way, but I donâ€™t know if thatâ€™s true or not. â€¦ He wears a big zoot suit, from what I remember. The song was fun to sing, so I donâ€™t know; weâ€™ll see.â€
Well, it seems like he enjoyed the take on the character but gave no concrete evidence to link him with the project.
What do you think, did you watch that Batman episode where he was featured? Would you like to see Neil Patrick Harris apply his talents to the CW DC world? Let us know your thoughts down below!
