The Flash: Eight Things About The Supergirl Musical Crossover “Duet”

Eight teases about the Flash/Supergirl musical crossover titled “Duet”

Published

The Flash finally took advantage of the fantastic voices in the Arrowverse (and beyond) with this Tuesday’s episode “Duet” which sees the characters in a musical setting and brings Supergirl’s Melissa Benoist and fellow cast members from her show into The Flash’s world.

My own personal review is being hosted at ComicBook.com, but beyond that: How about eight teases on what to look forward to?

Broken Hearts. Barry and Iris just called off their engagement. Kara recently learned that Mon-El had been lying to her for months. What better way to soothe a hurting heart than a musical? Bonus: There’s even a flashback to Nora Allen (Michelle Harrison) and Barry watching “Singin’ In The Rain” at the top of the episode.

There’s No Place Like Home. While Barry and Kara are themselves in the musical, other characters may look like people they know, but they aren’t. John Barrowman is a club owner/gangster with a son named Tommy, which I assume is an inside joke, even if not an intentional one. Victor Garber is also a part of that world, as are Carlos Valdes and Jeremy Jordan. Jesse L. Martin is there, too, but there’s a surprise involved with that which should lead to a lot of amusement. There may be another character or two who exists in that musical world, but you’ll have to watch and discover it for yourself.

The Songs. Without looking it up, I’m assuming “I’m Your Super Friend” is the song written by Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s Rachel Bloom because it felt like it was right out of that show. Gustin and Benoist perform separately on some songs, but this one in particular highlights and takes advantage of their musical talent and chemistry together. “Runnin’ Home To You” sung by Grant Gustin and written by the award-winning Benj Pasek and Justin Paul is the song to look for with the most emotional resonance.

A Musical Past Remembered. Caitlin brings up that she knows Barry has a great voice — a callback to that Season 1 episode where they did karaoke together.

Snow in Central City. Vancouver was getting a rare snow at the time of this episode’s filming, so if you’d like to see what Kid Flash, Vibe, and the Martian Manhunter vs. a villain in the snow looks like, you’ll be in luck.

Speaking of the Martian Manhunter… Other characters’ reaction to him is fun.

Darren Criss! That’s all that I need to say there. I’m surprised there wasn’t a slushie joke.

Watch To The Very Last Minutes. Again, self-explanatory.

The Flash “Duet” airs this Tuesday, March 21 on The CW, with some setup happening in Monday’s Supergirl. Photos from the Flash episode can be found below.

DC FanDome: Official Flash Season 8 Costume Photo Revealed

The Flash gets a costume upgrade for Season 8 in a new photo revealed at DC FanDome.

Published

on

Today at the DC FanDome virtual event, the new boots for Barry Allen a.k.a. The Flash for Flash Season 8 were revealed… and Barry finally has his iconic gold boots in his TV incarnation.

We’ve come a long way from the original burgundy costume with the red background of the insignia, hafven’t we?

When asked about the upgrade at DC FanDome, Grant Gustin described them as “the final element that’s been missing.”

“I’ve loved all the versions of The Flash suit we’ve had on the show, but the suit we have now is the closest to the many iterations you see in the comic books — with the exception of those gold boots! I’ve always felt that those boots would be the final touch,” he added.

With the announcement, DC FanDome unveiled an official first look at the new suit, which also includes a newly designed center crest and wings. You can see the new look photo below.

From Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, The Flash returns for Season 8 with the five-part “Armageddon” mega-event beginning Tuesday, November 16, at 8/7c on The CW. Based on the DC characters, the series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Eric Wallace, Sarah Schechter, Jonathan Butler and Gabriel Garza.

Speculation: Does The Arrowverse “Armageddon” Event Take Place In The Future?

FlashTVNews’ Craig Byrne speculates that the “Armageddon” Arrowverse crossover may take place in The Flash’s future…

Published

on

In 1991, DC Comics had a crossover that went through all of their comic book Annuals. The event was called “Armageddon 2001” and took place in the then-far future of the DC Universe. We got to see different outcomes for many characters, and the villainous Monarch was revealed to be one of DC’s heroes.

Today, The CW announced this year’s crossover event that kicks off The Flash Season 8. It’s called “Armageddon” and some old favorites are back to join Barry, Iris, and Team Flash against whatever challenges they face – challenges that include Damien Darhk and Eobard Thawne/The Reverse Flash. Do note that both of those characters are known to travel through time — and that one of the returning heroes, Mia Smoak-Queen, is currently in the year 2040.

Who else is from the future? Recent Flash visitors Nora and Bart, the children of Barry and Iris. They were still in the present when we last saw them at their parents’ vow renewal.

So, here’s a prediction: What if this is an adaptation of “Armageddon 2001” but is instead “Armageddon 2051” or something like that? It would be a way to tie up loose ends like William’s kidnapping from Green Arrow and the Canaries without actually having to see it. Likewise, we don’t know for a fact that some of these guests are the 2021 versions; perhaps, for example, Black Lightning is an older Jefferson Pierce from the future, no longer retired?

But this also brings up another question: Where’s the Superman & Lois representation?

If it is the future, could the Superman there be Jordan Kent? Or, like DC’s recent “Future State” event which in many ways was like “Armageddon 2001” in previewing the future, a Jonathan Kent with powers? Being 20+ years older, it would necessitate a recasting for sure, so that would explain not being in the original announcement.

Surely, we’ll know more between now and November when the event premieres. It is a bit weird that, if there is time travel, the Legends of Tomorrow aren’t present aside from Ray Palmer who is no longer on the team. In any event, we’re very, very curious….
