It was announced previously that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star Rachel Bloom has written a song called “Superfriends” as one of the original songs that we will be getting in the crossover.

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. Glee’s Darren Criss will be playing the villainous Music Meister.
