It seems that a musical cross-over episode of ‘The Flash’ / ‘Supergirl’ was just not enough for the fans this year, as some are hungry f0r more, as Stephen Amell and Emily Bett Rickards found out recently during a panel at Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in London recently. When they were asked if they would ever participate in a musical episode of ‘Arrow,’ Amell was very quick to answer “No, no, no,” though he did turn to Rickards and ask, “I only just found out how good of a singer you are…If you were asked to appear on one of the other musical shows, would you do it?” She answered with, “Yeah, as long as John Barrowman was there,” which seems unlikely since he just left the Arrowverse, though now that I think about it I’m pretty sure if they asked he might come back for another musical opportunity.
Not easily shut down, the same fan then asked if Rickards and Amell might do a little song right then and there, but Amell stopped that as well, telling the fan to instead just Google the cast singing at Comic-Con from last year, where they all joined together to sing ‘Hamilton.’
Personally, I think the musical thing is a gimmick that not every show HAS to employ, and I like that Amell does not feel particularly inclined to do it just because the other Arrowverse shows just did one. After all, ‘The Flash’ and ‘Supergirl’ both have stars that came from ‘Glee’ and excel at singing, not to mention have heroes that tend to be a bit lighter and brighter, and I am not sure seeing the grim tone of ‘Arrow’ done as a musical would feel right, especially since they do not feature powers and metahumans as often, and would have to stretch a bit to explain the whole musical act (it was explained on ‘The Flash’ by having the Music Meister be some sort of inter-dimensional god who came to Earth-1 to teach Kara and Barry a lesson about love).
What are your thoughts? Would you have wanted to see an ‘Arrow’ musical, or does the whole prospect sound ridiculous? Share your opinions in the comments below!
