There’s going to be a superhero musical cross-over starring the Flash and Supergirl. The announcement was made by the CW’s Greg Berlanti – who executive produces a number of superhero TV shows, including Arrow (Stephen Amell), The Flash (Grant Gustin) and most recently Supergirl (Melissa Benoist).
Speaking to reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour, he revealed that a two-episode crossover was in the works, featuring stars from across The Flash and Supergirl. Berlanti hinted: “There will be a musical crossover. There’s going to be a musical pair of episodes in the back half of the year between Supergirl and Flash. We have a number of people who can sing from all shows making appearances.”
Elsewhere, he teased that a major character on one of the shows would come out… Berlanti told E Online: “It is a significant character, we’re not trying to be coy about it. “The only reason we [don’t want to say who] is we really want the audience to enjoy the character development and not necessarily be ahead of the storyline.I think it’s important that people know we want to include a character who happens to be gay in the show. We had a character who we discussed that as a possibility last year internally, and it didn’t… “So this year, when we were planning this season, we said to the network and studio that it was a priority for us. And everyone was cool with it.”
