New clips, trailers, posters, and details from our favorite shows are typically the reason why people attend major panels at San Diego Comic-Con. Although, sometimes the most memorable moments happen during the Q&A portions of these presentations. For example, where else can you find superheroes singing outside of the internet?
For a few years now, fans have been wondering when they will get a musical episode of ‘Arrow’. After all, the Arrowverse is filled with talented singers and dancers including Caity Lotz, Katie Cassidy, John Barrowman, Grant Gustin, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh, Jesse L. Martin, Victor Garber, Ciara Renee, and Arthur Darvill. However, Stephen Amell adamantly denies that this will ever happen. But with that being said, that doesn’t stop the cast from randomly breaking out into song every once in a while. So when someone at SDCC this year brought up the notion once again, the panel (naturally instigated by Barrowman and heavily supported by Echo Kellum) started singing ‘You’ll Be Back’ from the smash Broadway hit/cultural phenomenon ‘Hamilton’.

I’d say that this is pretty surprising, but ‘Hamilton’ has been bringing people together since its debut. In fact, The CW should probably just enlist Lin-Manuel Miranda to collaborate with Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Andrew Kreisberg to bring the casts of ‘Arrow’, ‘The Flash’, ‘Legends of Tomorrow’, and ‘Supergirl’ for a one-off musical special where the heroes must face off against the Music Meister, who should be played by Neil Patrick Harris, Jonathan Groff, or Andrew Rannells. This sounds like the perfect thing to program around the holidays, right? Your move, CW. Feel free to thank me for this awesome idea with ‘Hamilton’ tickets.
‘Arrow’ starring Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, Paul Blackthorne, Echo Kellum, and John Barrowman returns to The CW for season five on October 7, 2016 at 8:00pm.
