The special Flash-Supergirl musical crossover is finally here. The CW released the first teaser promo for the musical episode which will air next week and it’s going to be a reunion for some Glee stars.
In the clip, Grant Gustin (The Flash/Barry Allen) and Melissa Benoist (Supergirl/Kara Danvers) are seen dressed elegantly while they hit the dance floor. Darren Criss plays the villain Music Meister. Gustin, Benoist and Criss all previously starred in Fox’s musical dramedy Glee.
According to Deadline, the Music Meister sends the two superheroes to the world where life is a musical. They could only escape by singing and dancing.
The story kicks off when The Music Meister attacks Supergirl at the end of episode 16, titled Star-Crossed. Mon-El (Chris Wood) and Hank Henshaw (David Harewood) decide to bring comatose Supergirl to Central City since they could not wake her up.
While helping his friend, Music Meister surprises The Flash and puts him in a similar situation with Supergirl. Powerless, Barry and Kara wake up in an alternate reality. The only way they can escape the musical world is by following the script and to sing and dance till the end.
The Music Meister is a villain created for Batman: The Brave and the Bold. He has the power to hypnotize people into a trance. Once under his spell, the Music Meister can control people to do whatever he wishes.
Meanwhile, Kara and Barry’s friends will also appear in the episode titled Duet. The crossover will include singing performances from Jesse L. Martin (Det. Joe West), Carlos Valdes (Cisco), Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein), Jeremy Jordan (Winn), and John Barrowman (Malcolm Merlyn), DigitalSpy noted.
Flash-Supergirl Musical Crossover Songs
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend co-creator and star Rachel Bloom earlier revealed that she penned the original song for the crossover episode. The song is titled Superfriends and it will be a duet between Kara and Barry.
Bloom admitted that she volunteered to write the song for the crossover. She collaborated with Tom Root, who is best known for his work on Robot Chicken. Bloom said:
“As soon as I heard that they were doing a musical crossover, I e-mailed [CW president] Mark Pedowitz who connected me to Greg [Berlanti] and Andrew [Kreisberg]. I immediately offered them my services. As soon as they picked one of my song ideas, I hopped on the phone with my old Robot Chicken boss Tom Root … It was really fun to write a comedy song for two superheroes.”
Meanwhile, another song for the crossover was written by La La Land writers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. The song called Running to Find You will reportedly be performed by Gustin.
The crossover story will kick off in Supergirl on Monday, March 20 and will continue the following day on The Flash. The Flash-Supergirl musical crossover will both air at 8 p.m. in The CW.
