Production for the highly-anticipated Supergirl/Flash musical crossover is finally underway. While the sure-to-be-incredible new songs are definitely something to look forward to, recently released photos from the set show a fight sequence that is sure to whet fans’ appetites.
During a freezing cold snowstorm on February 3rd, Vancouver-based photographer Nigel Horsley captured a whole bunch photos showcasing a fight between the Music Meister (Darren Criss) and an epic team-up of Vibe (Carlos Valdes), Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale), and Martian Manhunter (David Harewood, but in this case, his stunt/body double).
What makes this team-up exceedingly special is that these are three heroes who weren’t involved in any of the major ‘Invasion!’ crossover battles (not counting Wally’s two-second assist in The Flash episode before Supergirl knocked him out). J’onn didn’t even get to visit Earth-1 as Barry (Grant Gustin) only recruited Kara (Melissa Benoist).
Despite Cisco and Wally never having met the last son of Mars, they each have had a relationship with J’onn in the past. Vibe and Martian Manhunter were teammates in the Detroit era of the Justice League (which also included the likes of Gypsy, Steel, and Vixen) back in 1984. Kid Flash, on the other hand, met Martian Manhunter when he joined the Young Justice team on the TV series back in 2011. (J’onn’s niece, M’gann, was one of his teammates.)
While these characters may not be at the center of their respective series, they’re just as (if not, more) powerful the titular heroes so this is one team-up I’m incredibly excited to see. Without further ado, here are the photos:
The following gallery features Horsley’s shots of the Music Meister. He may have only been able to get pics of Criss in his winter coat but you can click here to see HollywoodNorth.Buzz’s lower quality photo of him actually in costume. He seems to be wearing a dark green suit with an orange handkerchief in his pocket, nodding to the character’s costumes and hair color in Batman: The Brave and the Bold. He’s also carrying two large bags and was reported to be dancing during the scene.
What’s interesting about this fight is that it was reported that, out of these three heroes, only Cisco would be affected by the Music Meister’s power. Do J’onn and Wally get away fast enough or is this even the scene where Valdes starts putting his pipes to use? No answers are clear as of yet but we’ll make sure to keep you updated about everything ‘Duet’ as news gets released. In the mean time, make sure to tune in to ‘Untouchable’ tomorrow at 8/7c on The CW.
