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…
