Though it may not have been the first thing that people thought of when the shows launched, many fans wondered if there would ever be a chance for the stars of the Arrowverse to break out into song. After all, a number of cast members on ‘Arrow’, ‘The Flash‘, ‘Legends of Tomorrow’, and ‘Supergirl’ are seasoned theater performers. So when the network officially announced a musical crossover featuring the Scarlet Speedster and the Girl of Steel, it was like a dream come true. And so far, there have been a few small details that have managed to get out.
As previously reported, the crossover will take place during the March 20th and 21st episodes of ‘Supergirl’ and ‘The Flash’. Titled ‘Duet’, the special event will be directed by Dermott Downs (not Joss Whedon) and will feature the live-action debut of ‘Batman: The Brave and the Bold’ villain the Music Meister (though no casting has been announced just yet). Now, we know exactly who will be sharing their musical talents with the DC Universe.
While there is no word yet on what exactly they’ll be singing, Entertainment Weekly recently revealed which cast members are lined up to perform during the crossover. In addition to former ‘Glee’ alumni Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist, series regulars Jesse L. Martin, Carlos Valdes, and Jeremy Jordan will be singing and dancing as well. Plus, ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ star Victor Garber and general Arrowverse baddie John Barrowman will also join the festivities as guest stars.
Unfortunately, ‘Legends’ star Arthur Darvill is absent from the roster of yet another crossover. The actor who plays former Time Master Rip Hunter was likely left out due to his character’s new status quo that will be explored when the show returns from hiatus, but it would have been cool to see what they could have done with him and his experience in the Tony Award-winning musical ‘Once’. Otherwise, there’s still some excellent talent that is sure to pique the interests of superhero and musical fans alike.
Are you excited to see the musical crossover between ‘Supergirl’ and ‘The Flash’ later this year? What songs would you like to hear the cast members perform? And with Music Meister’s casting still undetermined, who would you like to see join this entertaining ensemble as the primary antagonist? Sound off in the comments.
