Apparently today’s the day for Flash/Supergirl crossover news. After this morning’s teaser clip, The CW also released photos from the upcoming episode, which include a first look at Darren Criss as the Music Meister. Entertainment Weekly shared the full gallery.
Criss’ casting was announced back in January, to absolutely no one’s surprise. The Glee alum grabbed the attention of the public with his college passion project A Very Potter Musical. He has worked nearly non-stop ever since. Since graduating from the Warblers, Criss has performed on stage, on TV, and in film. He has done voice over work for several TV shows including Archer and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He reunited with Glee creator Ryan Murphy as a guest star on American Horror Story.
According to the synopsis, the crossover episode takes place largely in the Flash universe, and will air during Flash‘s normal time slot. The Music Meister has placed Barry and Kara in a coma state, where they are trapped in an alternate reality based on a musical. New photos reveal that the musical takes on an old Hollywood aesthetic, and that more than just Kara and Barry will be affected. This is great news for fans of musical theatre, considering that both Jesse L. Martin and Jeremy Jordan have enjoyed illustrious careers on the stage.
