- Darren Criss—who rose to fame starring as a gay teen on Glee—will guest star in a Supergirl/The Flash musical crossover as villain Music Meister, a character previously voiced (and sung) by Neil Patrick Harris on the cartoon Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Supergirl and The Flash respectively star Criss' fellow Glee alums Melissa Benoist and Grant Gustin, and both shows feature Broadway vets in their regular casts (Jeremy Jordan on Supergirl, Jesse L. Martin on The Flash). Victor Garber and John Barrowman—gay theater stars who are also part of the CW's DC TV universe—will appear as well, so we're pretty much talking queer geek singularity here.
- In less cheery news regarding The Flash, the big-screen version of the character keeps hitting a few more speedbumps. He'll still be in Justice League later this year, but his solo film has lost not one but two directors to "creative differences" over the past year. It still has no director, and now the script is getting what Hollywood calls a "page-one rewrite", a new draft from a new screenwriter. Hopefully, the movie (starring self-described queer actor Ezra Miller) turns out well, but this sort of behind-the-scenes turmoil doesn't reflect a strong direction on the studio's part.
- Millie Bobby Brown, who became America's 1980s psychic-child sweetheart on Stranger Things, will star in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the sequel to the 2014 film. No details on her character yet, but we're guessing she befriends/commands/has a psychic connection with Godzilla and/or other monsters, or something like that.
As always, watch here for more. Especially on that Flash/Supergirl musical.
