One of the most highly anticipated events for both Supergirl and The Flash this season is the upcoming musical crossover between the two shows. Darren Criss, who will be playing the villainous Music Meister, shared on his Instagram page that he has wrapped production on the musical crossover which will mostly be taking place on The Flash in episode 17 which airs on Tuesday, March 21.
It was recently announced that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s Rachel Bloom has written a song called “Superfriends” as one of the original songs that we will be getting in the crossover. La La Land songwriters, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, have also contributed with a song for the event as Grant Gustin will be singing “Runnin’ Home to You”. The event will start at the end of Supergirl’s 16th episode of Season 2, similarly to how the 4-show crossover kicked off last year.
The musical event will feature stars from all four CW DC shows with Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Martin Stein (Victor Garber), Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) and Winn Schott (Jeremy Jordan) that will all be making singing appearances. Martian Manhunter (David Harewood) and Mon-El (Chris Wood) will show up in non-singing capacity. Gustin and Benoist have worked with Criss previously as all three of them come from the FOX musical comedy-drama Glee that ran for six seasons.
Supergirl airs on Monday nights while The Flash airs on Tuesday nights, both respectively at 8/7c on The CW. Make sure to check back at Heroic Hollywood after every single episode of Season 2 and Season 3 respectively for our weekly reviews.
