Musicals and Superheroes? ‘Supergirl’ and ‘The Flash’ take on musical episode!
The CW can handle the crossover episodes like a champ, and we are lucky enough to get another one! This time, it’s a musical. The two-part crossover will feature Supergirl, Flash, and both of their teams going up against none other than Music Meister. His first appearance was in the animated Batman series, ‘The Brave and the Bold’, voiced by Neil Patrick Harris. The Music Meister will be giving the heroes a reason to be all of a sudden breaking out in song and dance.
This time, we get Darren Criss of ‘Glee’ to croon us with the songs of the Meister. We have had a couple musical surprises on the shows, seeing a very drunk Caitlin Snow and Barry sing Summer Nights from ‘Grease’, or when we got to see Earth 2 Joe as a lounge singer. The thoughts of a musical, we never gave a second thought to, until now.
Filming has just wrapped, and even though we must wait until March 20th for the airing, photos are popping up over on the Instagram.
Until then, we have the synopsis for this weeks episode, airing on February 7th.
THE TOUCH OF DEATH – Barry (Grant Gustin) and the team at S.T.A.R. Labs work together to bring down Clive Yorkin (guest star Matthew Kevin Anderson), a criminal meta-human who is methodically killing people by causing them to decompose at an accelerated rate. Joe (Jesse L. Martin) becomes his next target but it’s Iris (Candice Patton) who is caught in the crossfire. The Flash mentors Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) and begins to elevate the newer speedster’s training to another level.
‘Supergirl’ airs on Monday nights at 8/7c, and ‘The Flash’ airs Tuesday nights at 8/7c on The CW.
Keep a lookout for the musical crossover event, starting with ‘Supergirl’ on March 20 at 8/7c.
