There will be a musical crossover episode of The Flash and Supergirl
It’s the moment yours truly has been waiting for – but never expected would actually come to pass – since the casting of Melissa Benoist as Supergirl: Supergirl and The Flash will be staging a musical crossover episode.
Speaking at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Thursday, executive producer Greg Berlanti responded to press questions with: “Yes, there will be a musical crossover.
“There’s going to be a musical pair of episodes in the back half of the year between Supergirl and Flash.”
Asked about the music they will use for the special episode, Berlanti said: “I think they’re going to be mostly preexisting songs.”
This will be nothing new for Supergirl star Benoist and The Flash lead Grant Gustin, who both played major roles in the musical comedy television series Glee.
Berlanti continued: “Some of you may know my own personal love of musicals and actors who have been in them, and we have a number of people who can sing across all the shows who will be making some very exciting appearances in the back half of the year.”
“I’ve probably been leading the charge myself just because my own nexus of loving musicals and loving superheroes. So many times it’s a musical episode off the set, and I think on all the shows, we love to use all of the character talents as much as possible. We’ve toyed with who potentially the villain could kind of be. My sense is we’ll be very careful about how it is they kind of break into song and there will probably be an element of being in some character’s head at the time.”
