The CW gave two DC shows another crossover and it’s a musical one, which of course fans are loving to see. “The Flash” and “Supergirl” geared up for a musical special full of dancing, singing, and old fashion mafia action. The producer of the said shows has revealed the origins of the recent musical crossover.
Origins Of The Musical Crossover
One of the executive producers of “Supergirl” and “The Flash”, Andrew Kreisberg went on an interview with Entertainment Weekly and revealed how the musical crossover started. He revealed that the musical has been planned already in the beginning because they already had a set of actors who were great at singing and were even from musical shows. He said that it has always been just an idea, which they knew they would eventually do because they have Melissa Benoist and Grant Gustin on board.
However it became a reality when Greg Berlanti pushed for it and that once everyone said they’ll do it, Berlanti announced it immediately so they had no choice but to make the musical crossover come true. The crossover between “Supergirl” and “The Flash” comes into play after a villain named Music Meister, played by “Glee” actor Darren Criss, comes into the picture. He puts the two DC superheroes in deep hallucination, putting them in a world of songs that they have to survive.
Kreisberg Reveals How It Is Working On The Musical Crossover
It’s no surprise that working on episodes fit for a musical crossover will be a challenge. Kreisberg said that the stars of “Supergirl” and “The Flash” were incredibly shocked about the musical but they were happy to do it since Benoist and Gustin have always been fans of musicals since they were kids. Kreisberg revealed that the biggest challenge of making the said crossover happen was choosing the right songs. He said they went through a lot of songs, deciding whether they’ll go with old or new songs.
They even considered having Benoist singing “Moon River” since Berlanti has always wanted that to happen but as for “Put A Little Love In Your Heart”, he admitted that they decided on that on a whim. Kreisberg further revealed that “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” star, Rachel Bloom also approached them saying how she wanted to make a song for them during this musical crossover. The producers have also sat down in talks with “La La Land” songwriters, Pasek and Paul.
