Supergirl Flies to the Flash for a Special Musical Episode

The Music Meister is set to make his live-action debut in a crossover episode of The Flash.

Glee alum Darren Criss will fill the dancing shoes of the fan favorite villain the Music Meister on the March 21st episode of The Flash. It will be the first even live-action depiction of the character, which previously appeared as a villain on the kitschy Batman: Brave and the Bold cartoon voiced by Neal Patrick Harris.

After getting zapped by the Music Meister, The Flash and Supergirl are trapped in a alternate reality where everyday life is like a movie musical. The only way to get home is to make it to the end of the Meister’s twisted movie.

The Flash and Supergirl casts actually have deep musical roots. Jessie L. Martin was in Rent. Victor Garber was Jesus in Godspell and Grant Gustin (The Flash) and Melissa Benoist (Supergirl) are themselves both former Glee cast members.

Entertainment Weekly posted photos from the episode, titled “Duet,” in this week’s issue, and The CW  posted a teaser trailer to the web.


Supergirl Joins the CW Superhero Fight Club

The Girl of Steel joins the other CW heroes in a revamped version of the classic fight club promo from last year.

CW added Supergirl to its ever-expanding stable of DC superhero television shows. And what better way to induct the Maid of Might into the family than to give us an updated version of the much beloved Superhero Fight Club promo from last year.

The new fight club pits Supergirl, the Flash, Arrow, Firestorm, White Canary and the Atom against what appears to be a GLaDOS-inspired robot of doom controlled by tech whizzes Ramone Cisco and Felicity Smoak — with a surprise villain waiting in the wings.

And just because we love is so much, we’re going to include the original CW Superhero Fight Club.

The Flash premieres on Tuesday, October 4.

Arrow premieres Wednesday, October 5.

Supergirl premieres Monday, October 10.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow stars premieres on Thursday, October 13.

Supergirl meets Miss Martian, Superman and more this fall

If you’ve been keeping up with television news recently, chances are you’ve been hearing about all of the buzz surrounding Supergirl. The series, which returns for its second season on Monday, Oct. 10, continues to make headlines as it settles into its new home at The CW.

With many anticipated guest appearances like Superman, played by Teen Wolf star Tyler Hoechlin, and a crossover musical with the Flash, 2016 is shaping up to be the year of Kara Danvers.

According to, the summer press tour for the Television Critics Association’s CW panel announced that Miss Martian, played by Sharon Leal, will join Martian Manhunter in the series’ sophomore season. There have been no statements made about whether or not she will be a series regular.

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg also spoke at the Television Critics Association summer press tour at the Supergirl panel and revealed that the mysterious pod that crash-landed on earth belonged to Mon-El, who will be played by Containment’s Chris Wood.

Supergirl joins The CW’s impressive lineup of DC shows, including Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow and The Flash. For those that didn’t keep up with the series in its first season on CBS, don’t fret. Netflix is set to stream the season starting Saturday, Sept. 10.

The CW is also airing two episodes of the show’s first season every Monday night from 8 to 10 p.m. The reruns started on Aug. 1 and will end on Oct. 3, according to an article on International Business Times.

Dust off that red cape, Supergirl fans. With a lineup like this ahead of her, Kara is in for an exciting, entertaining debut season on her new network.

Supergirl Renewed — Moves to the CW for Season 2

Variety is reporting that freshman drama Supergirl starring Melissa Benoist has been renewed for a second season, but is moving from CBS to sister network the CW, which is already home to superhero shows The FlashArrow and Legends of Tomorrow.

Although it was the highest rated new drama for CBS this year and brought the network its youngest audience, Supergirl always seemed like an odd fit at CBS; and the network had better ratings last year with the comedy block Supergirl replaced.

The show had its highest ratings ever when the Flash, played by Grant Gustin, crossed over from his show on the CW, reaffirming that the audience was there for Supergirl — just perhaps not at CBS.


The Flash Promo Shows New Female Speedster ‘Trajectory’

The Flash is on hiatus, but they released a promo for the next episode to tide us over — and we get our first glance at Trajectory.

In the comics, Trajectory enjoyed a brief three-issue run as a superhero granted powers by Lex Luthor. She dreamed of joining the Teen Titans as the next Kid Flash. But when she proved difficult for Luthor to control, he stripped her of her powers in the middle of a battle with the supervillain Blockbuster, and she was killed.


The television version of Trajectory appears to be quite different — a petty thief who engages in high-speed mischief that gets attributed to the Flash. It will be interesting to see where her powers come from and just how “bad” she really is. Are we looking at the Flash’s version of Catwoman? Or is she part of a more sinister conspiracy?

In either case, another speedster is sure to catch the eye of this season’s “big bad” Zoom — which could put this Trajectory on the same tragic path as her comic-book predecessor.

The Flash episode “Trajectory” airs on the CW, Tuesday, March 22.

“The Flash” Casts Its First Female Speedster


Soap star Allison Paige has been cast as Eliza Harmon, a.k.s. “Trajectory,” and will make her debut in an episode later this year.

Trajectory was the name of a short-lived heroine introduced during the “52” crossover event a few years ago.  A lifelong fan of the Flash, Harmon volunteered for Lex Luthor’s “Everyman” project and received the gift of super-speed with the hope of one day becoming the new Kid Flash. Her story was cut tragically short when Luthor intentionally removed her powers during a battle with the supervillain Blockbuster.

The television version of Trajectory will give the Flash plenty of difficulty when she arrives in Central City and creates super-powered chaos — chaos that is blamed on the Flash.

Paige’s version of Trajectory will make her television debut on the CW in Episode 16 of season 2 of The Flash.

The Disney Princess / Justice League Mashups You Didn’t Know You Needed

There usually isn’t a ton of overlap between Disney princess fans and superhero fans. The culture of each fanbase is quite different and they tend to attract different types of people. But DeviantArt user Micah Graham (a.k.a. MuiMushroom) saw princess and superheroes as two great tastes that taste great together and made these brilliant Disney/Justice League mashups.

I was just thinking that it would be a fun crossover to do, it started out as just a discussion with my brother, “If the princesses were super-hero’s who would they be?” That sort of thing, and we began matching them up. It was just a fun little thing to get ready for Comic-con, and it was a lot of fun designing the costumes.

Check out the gallery of superheroic princesses below, and then check out Micah’s other work on DeviantArt.
