FEATURES SONGS CO-WRITTEN BY CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND’S RACHEL BLOOM & TOM ROOT; AND LA LA LAND OSCAR® WINNERS BENJ PASEK & JUSTIN PAUL 

(MARCH 22, 2017 — LOS ANGELES) — WaterTower Music today released the soundtrack from the special musical episode of The Flash that aired on The CW last night. The album, The Flash – Music From The Special Episode: Duet, features seven tracks from the show, including songs performed by cast members Grant Gustin (Barry Allen/The Flash), Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon/Vibe) and Jesse L. Martin (Det. Joe West), along with performances by Supergirl’s Melissa Benoist (Kara Danvers/Supergirl) and Jeremy Jordan (Winn Schott), as well as DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’s Victor Garber (Prof. Martin Stein) and John Barrowman (Malcolm Merlyn). The soundtrack features the song “Super Friend,” co-written by Golden Globe winner Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) and Emmy® winner Tom Root (Robot Chicken). The release also features “Runnin’ Home To You,” which was written by Golden Globe and Academy Award® winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land). The cast performs new music along with renditions of classic songs “Moon River,” “Put A Little Love In Your Heart” and “More I Cannot Wish.” The collection additionally features musical score by gifted composer Blake Neely (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow).

This musical episode and soundtrack is exciting not only for the Supergirl crossover, but also given Gustin and Benoist’s history starring in Glee. This episode pairs them with fellow Glee alum Darren Criss, who plays the villain The Music Meister in this episode. Criss also studied musical theater at the University of Michigan along with The Flash star Carlos Valdes.

The Flash – Music From The Special Episode: Duet is now available on iTunes, and the track list is as follows:

New CW Head Throws Shade At The Flash

New CW President Brad Schwartz has thrown shade at The Flash while propping up another series.

Published

on

New CW Entertainment President Brad Schwartz today threw some shade at The Flash when propping up one of The CW’s better new performers, Wild Cards, when doing an interview with Deadline.

“You’ll probably be hearing more announcements from us very soon,” he said. “That show did great. It grew 10% versus what The Flash did in the same spot the year before. So, here we are beating shows that everyone’s very romantic about. We’d very much like to renew that one.”

Obviously, this is to show that Canadian imports perform better than more expensive fare… but might it be considered that The Flash was a show in its ninth season – a time when new audiences might not be interested in jumping on to series? Or, perhaps that portions of The Flash fandom had moved on, with no interest in The Cecile Show? Finally, The Flash Season 9 mostly aired at a time where producers and/or cast were unable to promote it, during the 2023 strikes, which makes the comparison very unfair.

Wild Cards is a fun series, but there’s no reason to denigrate The Flash or the superhero shows that made The CW great. Hopefully this was just a wild misunderstanding of his quote. The fact of the matter is: Sometimes more expensive fare is worth investing in. Especially considering how Schwartz hypes up the new season of Superman & Lois, that should be known to the new people in charge of The CW.

Flash Cast Member Returns for the Superman & Lois Finale

A major actor from The Flash will be playing a role in the series finale of Superman & Lois.

Published

A major cast member from The Flash will be appearing in the series finale of Superman & Lois.

No, it’s not Grant Gustin, sadly… the actor in question is Tom Cavanagh, the actor who brought us infinite Wells variants. Cavanagh revealed this recently at a convention, where he talked about how he usually enjoyed directing season finales for the show, but was unable to in this case because Gregory Smith had already signed on to direct the Superman & Lois finale.

Superman & Lois showrunner Todd Helbing, who had also worked with Cavanagh before on The Flash and recruited him to direct the series’ 100th episode among others, instead suggested he has a role in the finale.

No word yet on what that role might be. As Superman & Lois is at a different spot in the multiverse, it doesn’t necessarily even have to be a version of Harrison Wells or Eobard Thawne. It could serve as a good closer, though, to the Arrowverse in general, as Superman & Lois is the last gasp for that world on The CW. In any event, you can see video of Cavanagh speaking about this (and more) at our Superman & Lois portal, KryptonSite.

The final season of Superman & Lois premieres this Fall on The CW.

Flash Missing: Vanishes In Crisis, April 25, 2024

The “Flash Missing: Vanishes in Crisis” headline in the Flash TV series pilot was dated April 25, 2024.

Published

While events of the series would ultimately speed up the timeline, Flash fans surely remember the final moments of the pilot episode of the Grant Gustin-led series where we see a Central City Citizen newspaper graphic announcing “Flash Missing, Vanishes In Crisis.” The date of that article? April 25, 2024.

Which happens to be… today.

When The Flash premiered in 2014, one might have expected that April 25, 2024 might be the right time for the final episode of a 10-year run… of course, as we saw, the Crisis happened a few years earlier, The Flash ended in 2023 instead, and it all might have been a good thing, considering how strikes and pandemics got in the show’s way. Still, it’s fun to think about, and it’s fun to remember that fantastic rush we had after the end of watching such an excellent premiere. And hey – not only did we get nine seasons of the show, but we also had a bad Flash movie that the series was far superior to, even in its worst moments. Win-win!

Ride the lightning, everyone.
