The Flash and Supergirl are Teaming Up for Two Musical Crossover Episodes!
The Flash's Grant Gustin and Supergirl's Melissa Benoist are both returning to former lives for two, yes two, special musical crossovers of their respective shows. At CW's TCA presentation today, Greg Berlanti revealed that the two episodes, which are totally separate from the already-announced four-episode crossover event, will air towards the back end of this upcoming season, with Ali Adler adding that the musical format seemed like a natural fit for the show's multi-talented stars.

Both Gustin and Benoist got their big breaks during extended spells on the hit musical show, Glee, so when the two were united within the same DC Universe, many fans made it clear that they wanted their heroes to show off their more artful powers. According to Berlanti, the two episodes will consist mainly of pre-existing songs, but the EP did add that they would look to write at least one original tune for each of the episodes. 

This won't actually be the first time that Barry Allen has shown off his musical talents on the show. In one of The Flash's most memorable scenes back in Season 1, Barry and Kaitlin took to the stage for a, shall we say, off-balance and adorable rendition of Summer Lovin'. 



Maybe they could write this all off as Sebastian Smythe and Marley Rose being Earth 4 Barry and Kara?

In more exciting developments, it's also been revealed that a mystery character from one of CW's four DC comics shows will be exploring their sexuality at some point this season. Berlanti remained tight-lipped on who that might be, but he did stress that it was a major character.

"It is a significant character and we're not trying to be coy about it, we really want the audience to enjoy the character developments and not necessarily be ahead of the storyline," Berlanti said.
