The concept of the DC Comics’ mystical characters gathering to combat occult evil always sounds good but of course, execution is everything. When it was done sparingly, as in Swamp Thing #50, it was quite effective. As an ongoing series, it proved tough to manage since each player was plucked from a title that had a fairly unique look and feel.
That said, the newly released animated Justice League Dark film is incredibly entertaining and certainly a cut above the last half-dozen releases. From a story by Jld writer J.M. DeMatteis and Ernie Altbacker, Altbacker’s script shifts the super-heroic DC Universe to supernatural threats that Superman (Jerry O’Connell), Wonder Woman (Rosario Dawson), Green Lantern (Roger Cross) and the others are less equipped to handle. Altbacker is no stranger to heroes and magicians with credits including Spooksville and Green Lantern: The Animated Series and he does a fine job weaving the various threads. »

No matter your age, anyone who has delved into comic book collecting has no doubt heard the name of Jack “The King” Kirby. Aside from having worked on Marvel properties such as Captain America, the Fantastic Four and the Avengers in their earliest of days, the legendary writer/artist also made some valuable contributions to DC by creating Darkseid and the New Gods. Another one of his brainchildren most beloved by readers has recently been revived in the form of The Kamandi Challenge.
For those unfamiliar, Kamandi, “The Last Boy on Earth,” pretty much functioned as DC’s answer to Planet of the Apes when it originally arrived on the scene decades ago. But instead of having only talking apes ruling the Earth, other animals evolved physically and intellectually as well, most notably tigers. And in the time since, Kamandi has experienced some exposure in other media, more specifically in the animated series, »

Now that their battle against the Dominators is well behind them, The Flash and Supergirl can once again go about their usual business. You know, reconnecting with their loved ones and taking down supervillains on a weekly basis. But before long, these two will once again have to join forces against none other than the Music Meister.
As we previously reported, the musical crossover is set to kick off on March 20 with Supergirl acting as more of a prologue before things officially getting into full swing on March 21’s episode of The Flash, the appropriately titled “Duet.”
Seeing as how both Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist are Glee alums, it only makes sense that Darren Criss be cast as the Music Meister. This may come as somewhat of a disappointment to those who were hoping that Neil Patrick Harris would be able to reprise his role from Batman: The Brave and the Bold, »

The long-awaited and recently-confirmed musical crossover episode for The Flash and Supergirl has finally cast its villain, the melodic Music Meister, and it’s in the form of a Glee reunion, as TVLine reports that Darren Criss will be lending his signing chops to the villainous role.
“With our Flash and Supergirl being Glee alums, how could we not have them go up against another Glee favorite like Darren Criss? We’ve been blown away by his talent over the years and we can’t wait to see what he brings to the Music Meister.”

We still can’t believe this is happening. In a world with increasing stakes in established shared universes, and world-ending drama, it’s kind of nice to know the superhero genre is still used to pull stupid, ridiculous things like a musical crossover special.
In case you haven’t heard, in a couple months, The Flash and Supergirl will have a semi-two-part crossover special, wherein the characters will sing, Glee-style. I say “semi” because only the tail end of the March 20th episode of Supergirl will include the crossover aspects, and the rest of it will occur in the next episode of The Flash the following day — not unlike how the four-part Invasion special kicked off late last year.

If you do not know what NBC's Powerless is, don't think that you are in for another action packed DC series. It is far from that, the show premiers in February, and it will be a comedy based on Vanessa Hudgen's character who gets her dream job at Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises, and her boss Alan Tudyk that plays the cousin of Bruce Wayne himself, Van Wayne.
Emily Locke lands her dream job as Director of Research and Development for Wayne Security in Charm City, home to super heroes and villains and citizens fed up with the collateral damage of their constant fighting. Full of confidence and big ideas, Emily quickly learns that her aspirations far exceed those of her new boss and officemates, so it will be up to her to lead the team toward their full potential and the realization that you don’t need superpowers to be a hero. »

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s (more unsolicited) super casting suggestions from TVLine!
Music Meister has been ID’d as the Big Bad at the center of the two-part Supergirl/The Flash musical crossover and, according to sources, Greg Berlanti & Co. are currently looking for a vocally gifted actor in their 20s or 30s to play the iconic evildoer.

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article on this very website, where after learning that there would be a Flash/Supergirl musical crossover, I speculated that the villain could be none other than the Music Meister. Today this was confirmed by EW when they asked Greg Berlanti, the creator of both shows, about it.
"It is going to be the Music Meister. We're finishing writing the script this weekend. We haven't gone about casting it yet."
Do not underestimate this evildoer, as with the simple power of song and dance, The Music Meister wields a mind and body control power that would rival even Grodd.
This character was specifically created for an episode of the animated series Batman: The Brave And The Bold, and to my knowledge he has never made his way into the books. But hell, if Harley can transition then maybe he can as well. Using his power of song, »

Back in August, The CW announced that Supergirl and The Flash would be crossing paths once again this year for a two-part musical crossover which would allow former Glee stars Melissa Benoist and Grant Gustin to flex their singing voices once again.
Speaking at the Television Critics Assocation winter press tour, executive producer Greg Berlanti has provided an update on the crossover, as well as confirming the rumours that the about the villain.
“It is going to be the Music Meister,” said Berlanti. “We’re finishing writing the script this weekend.”
Berlanti was addressed the rumour linking Neil Patrick Harris to the role, given that he voiced the villain in the ‘Mayhem of the Music Meister’ episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, stating that: “We haven’t gone about casting it yet. But it’s the right question, though.”

It sounds like The CW's upcoming TheFlash/Supergirl musical crossover episode is going to take some inspiration from the classic "Once More with feeling" installment of Buffy the Vampire Slayer by introducing a villain that'll have the power to force the protagonists to belt out a tune. “It is going to be the Music Meister,” executive producer Greg Berlanti revealed while promoting his upcoming drama Riverdale at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Sunday. “We’re finishing writing the script this weekend.” This character was voiced by Neil Patrick Harris in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold animated series, and although Berlanti says they haven't cast the role yet, it sounds like there's a chance may attempt to coax him back to bring Music Meister to live-action life. Supergirl returns Monday, Jan. 23 at 8 p.m. Et, while The Flash will be back on Tuesday, Jan. 24 at 8 p. »
As speculated the instant the two-part Supergirl/The Flash musical crossover was announced last summer, the superfriends will indeed battle The Music Meister, executive producer Greg Berlanti confirmed on Sunday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
And though Neil Patrick Harris voiced the DC Comics villain in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold animated series — and thus has been speculated/hoped to assume the live-action role — The Music Meister has not yet been cast, Berlanti said.
“We’re certainly huge fans of [Harris],” showrunner Andrew Kreisberg later added, »
