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.
