We know the Supergirl/Flash musical crossover is going to be a big affair (here) and, we’re not lying, we really wanted the role of the villainous Music Meister to be played by Neil Patrick Harris who voiced the character in the animated The Brave And The Bold series.
But alas, it wasn’t to be…
The role has been filled by Darren Criss, another former Glee star (above) like Flash star Grant Gustin and Supergirl Melissa Benoist.
Exec producer Andrew Kreisberg told TVLine: “With our Flash and our Supergirl being Glee alums, how could we not have them go up against another Glee favorite like Darren Criss? We have been blown away by his talent over the years and we can’t wait to see what he brings to the Music Meister.”
While this isn’t the actor we pictured in the role of Music Meister (below), we are still really excited to see what The CW does with these characters in an episode that will undoubtedly draw parallels to Joss Whedon’s famous musical Buffy The Vampire Slayer episode, Once More With Feeling.
The comic book crossover will air on Monday, March 20th and Tuesday, March 21st.
We can’t wait to see how this all plays out on screen!
Are you excited? Let us know…
