Flash and Supergirl Cut a Rug in New Poster
The CW just revealed a special poster for next week’s The Flash/Supergirl musical crossover. We can’t wait! Get a full look at the one-sheet below.
The special crossover begins with Supergirl on Monday, March 20, 2017 at 8:00 PM EST with the episode “Star-Crossed.” If you know your Shakespeare, this most definitely has to do with Mon-El and Kara’s relationship, a certain disapproving party, and outside forces trying to keep them apart. Maybe this is how Music Meister is introduced?
A new villain (guest star Teri Hatcher) comes to National City, putting Supergirl ( Melissa Benoist) on high alert. Meanwhile, Winn’s (Jeremy Jordan) girlfriend, Lyra (guest star Tamzin Merchant), gets Winn in trouble with the law. Maggie (guest star Floriana Lima) attempts to help Winn but old loyalties get in the way. The Music Meister (Darren Criss) attacks Supergirl.
“Star-Crossed” continues into The Flash the following night on March 21, 2017 at 8:00 PM EST with “Duet.” Oddly enough, this is where executive producer Greg Berlanti has decided to fit all of the musical numbers rather than spreading them out between shows.
Barry (Grant Gustin) and team are surprised when Mon-El (guest star Chris Wood) and Hank Henshaw (guest star David Harewood) arrive on their Earth carrying a comatose Supergirl (guest star Melissa Benoist) who was whammied by the Music Meister (guest star Darren Criss). Unable to wake her up, they turn to Team Flash to save her. However, the Music Meister surprises The Flash and puts him in a similar coma, one that Team Flash can’t cure. Kara and Barry wake up without their powers in an alternate reality where life is like a musical and the only way to escape is by following the script, complete with singing and dancing, to the end.
Dermott Downs directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing.
This cross-over serves as a mini Glee reunion — Grant Gustin, Melissa Benoist, and Darren Criss all starred together on Fox’s musical series. Also exercising their musical pipes are Jesse L. Martin, Victor Garber, John Barrowman, Jeremy Jordan and Carlos Valdes.
