When we reported a couple of days ago that there was a musical crossover coming between Flash and Supergirl (two episodes, apparently) the first person we thought of to helm was Joss Whedon.
Whedon would be a natural fit for several reasons.
Firstly: He’s Joss Whedon.
Secondly: He knows comicbook properties maybe better than anyone.
Thirdly: His musical episode of Buffy, Once More with Feeling, is fantastic – plus he directed Glee – which featured Grant Gustin (Flash) and Melissa Benioist (Supergirl) – and he created the wonderful Dr Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog (more on that in a minute) so he’s no stranger to musicals.
Now the Hastag Show have announced that they have it on good authority that Whedon will be behind the camera for these episodes!

The Hastag Show has a good track record of breaking big news including their first reporting on who would be playing Iron Fist in the Netflix series, so we should treat this as a rumour… but remain optimistic.
Not only this but they are reporting that the villain will be Music Meister and that he’ll be played by Doctor Horrible himself, Neil Patrick Harris, who voiced the villain on Batman: The Brave and the Bold (below). (Continues after pic)
All the yes!
We love the idea that these shows can go full on crazy like this… and Whedon made it work on Buffy, so if all this pans out we’ll be very, very excited.
Let us know your thoughts.
Expect plenty of stuff like this if it does happen:
