As many fans of the Arrowverse are already aware, this season there are going to be some major cross-over events, events which will most likely bring the world of ‘Supergirl’ into realm of Earth-1, and hopefully result in some epic moments when all of the heroes of the four CW DC shows (‘Arrow,’ ‘The Flash,’ ‘Legends of Tomorrow,’ and ‘Supergirl’) come together. However, there is going to be another cross-over in early 2017 between ‘The Flash’ and ‘Supergirl,’ and this one will be entirely different than any that came before. Why you might ask, well it is because this will be a musical cross-over, allowing Barry and company to use their long gestating musical talents to carry the story, an idea that apparently has the producers of the show very excited. And it might not just be singing, as they are also throwing around the idea of having a big dance number in there as well. According to showrunner Todd Helbing while speaking to IGN:
“[I]f we can get a dance sequence in there on top of it, I would love to do that. Listening to Joe as the lounge singer, singing, and to see Grant and he was karaoke-ing first season, and even watching Danielle, not being able to sing … I’m just really excited, to be honest, to see how it all comes together. I know Greg [Berlanti] is very close to this story. He’s been thinking about it — I don’t know how long, probably not just yesterday, you know what I’m saying? He’s been percolating. Seeing Jesse sing, seeing Grant sing, it’s just one of those — like whoa, we can totally pull this off. I don’t know why we wouldn’t do this. Let’s go for it. This year in general we’re really swinging for the fences.”
What are your thoughts about the creative forces of the CW/ DC shows having a musical cross-over? Does the whole “let’s do a musical episode” idea seem a bit cliche at this point? Or do you think this might be an episode worth watching? Share your opinions on the matter in the comments below!
