Full “Duet” Trailer

Here’s the extended trailer for next week’s episode of The Flash, titled “Duet”. It’s the big musical crossover episode with the Music Meister (Darren Criss) and the cast of Supergirl, with guest appearances by Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) and Martin Stein (Victor Garber). All are accomplished singers, of course.

Abra Kadabra Cast In The Show, And More

As reported by the official DC blog, actor David Dastmalchian has been cast to play Abra Kadabra on The Flash TV series. He’ll apparently be appearing before the season’s over, which is interesting (I’ve long had a theory that H.R. Wells is Kadabra in disguise, but we’ll see). He’s described as “a criminal from a distant future whose advanced technological powers seem like magic, the time-traveling Abra Kadabra holds a secret the Flash will stop at nothing to uncover”. So it sounds like he may be fairly faithful to the comics.

Dastmalchian has appeared in other DC media before; he’s appeared on Gotham and had a small role in The Dark Knight.

We also know that Mirror Master and the Top will return in a few episodes, as of episode 19. That episode is currently filming right now, and is being directed by long-time cast member Tom Cavanagh.

And the CW has released the first teaser for the upcoming Flash-Supergirl crossover, titled “Duet”. It will air March 21st.

“Duet” Synopsis (Flash Musical Episode)

The CW has released the official synopsis for the FlashSupergirl musical crossover, titled “Duet”. The episode will air on March 21st, with apparently a bit of a prologue on Supergirl the night before.

DARREN CRISS (“GLEE”) GUEST STARS AS THE MUSIC MEISTER IN THE FLASH AND SUPERGIRL MUSICAL CROSSOVER – 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 (#317). Original airdate 3/21/2017.

Flash TV Roundup

This week’s episode of The Flash is titled “Dead Or Alive”, and you can see more official image stills from it at Flash TV News.

Plus, here’s the synopsis for next week’s episode, titled “Untouchable”. The episode will feature an old comics villain I never expected to see in the series!

The Flash 3×12 “Untouchable”
THE TOUCH OF DEATH – Barry (Grant Gustin) and the team at S.T.A.R. Labs work together to bring down Clive Yorkin (guest star Matthew Kevin Anderson), a criminal meta-human who is methodically killing people by causing them to decompose at an accelerated rate. Joe (Jesse L. Martin) becomes his next target but it’s Iris (Candice Patton) who is caught in the crossfire. The Flash mentors Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) and begins to elevate the newer speedster’s training to another level. Rob Hardy directed the episode written by Brooke Roberts and Judalina Neira.

And finally, a couple of links about the upcoming musical crossover between The Flash and Supergirl. TV Guide tells us a bit about who will sing in the episode (mostly people from the aforementioned two series, but also includes Arrow/Legends of Tomorrow‘s John Barrowman and LoT‘s Victor Garber), and the air date. It will begin on Supergirl on March 20th, and conclude on The Flash on March 21st.

The Music Meister has been cast for the crossover; he will be played by Glee actor Darren Criss, who appeared on the series with Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist. I was hoping Neil Patrick Harris would reprise the role, but he may have been too busy with a different ongoing series.

Looking forward to the episodes over the next couple of months? What are you most interested in? What doesn’t thrill you? Share your thoughts!

Flash/Supergirl Crossover Villain Revealed

Months ago we heard that there would be a musical crossover between The Flash and Supergirl, and people have been wondering ever since what would cause the characters to sing. It’s been reported this weekend that the cause will be the villain the Music Meister. You may remember him from the Batman: the Brave and the Bold animated series, which featured him as the singing villain in “Mayhem of the Music Meister!” who got other people to sing too. He’ll probably have the same abilities in the CW crossover as well.

In the animated series he was voiced by Neil Patrick Harris and there’s no word on who will play him on live television, but it’d sure be cool to see NPH reprise the role. However, showrunner Greg Berlanti says they haven’t cast the character yet.

Looking forward to the Music Meister? Who would you like to see play him? And who do you want to see sing in the episode? Share your thoughts!
