Ever hear some news that you’re not sure is amazing or awful? But you’re sure it’s good news? Well, yeah, we’re there.

See The CW’s Supergirl and Flash – Melissa Beniost and Grant Gustin – were both stars on Glee. So, in fairness, it was only a matter or time before those words collided – and it’s going to be this season (three Flash, two for Supergirl).

But that’s not all, as The Verge points out, Jesse L. Martin, who plays Joe West in The Flash, is famous for originating the role of Tom Collins in Rent on Broadway, while Jeremy Jordan, Supergirl’s Winn, has appeared in the Broadway production of Newsies and the film version of The Last Five Years. Additionally, Carlos Valdes, The Flash’s Cisco Ramon, has released several EPs under the name Tha Los, and Keiynan Lonsdale, Wally West, has a music video for his song Higher.

So it was no surprise that during the Television Critics Association exec producer Greg Berlanti said a Supergirl/Flash two episode musical crossover is coming: “they’re going to be mostly preexisting songs,” but there’ll be at least one original song per episode and it will be near the “back half of the year.”

So it sounds like The CW’s Arrowverse going full Buffy this year.

That all sound good? Cool…

And here’s a little taster thanks to Tom Cavanagh…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
