Joss Whedon has not rushed to sit back in the director’s chair again, despite earning nearly $3 billion in box office from just two films.
An entire season for the Margaret Atwood dystopian series is ready to go, but Darren Aronofsky needs a new network home.
Yesterday, fans of both The Flash and Supergirl were shocked when it was announced that the two shows would be having a musical crossover later this season, likely in the Spring of 2017, with each show not only receiving their own musical episode, but also possibly their own original songs as well. After years of people asking about possible musical episodes, due to the shows’ respective, musically talented casts, it was surprising and zany to hear that it was actually going to happen. To say the least.
Now, it looks like a new report may reveal who will be directing the crossover as well, and if it ends up being true, this could be some very good news for comic book fans everywhere.
The Hashtag Show, who is most well known for breaking the casting of Marvel and Netflix’s Iron Fist earlier this year, is reporting that none other than Avengers director, Joss Whedon, is set to helm the two episodes. Their report goes on to state that the crossover’s villain will be Music Meister as well, and speculate whether or not Whedon could look to his previous collaborator, Neil Patrick Harris, for the role.
Considering the past musical projects that Whedon has done, including the fantastic Buffy the Vampire Slayer musical episode “Once More, With Feeling” and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, in addition to the high profile work he’s most well-known for – landing Whedon for this gig would be a huge achievement for the creative teams behind these shows. Whether or not it actually ends up happening is another matter altogether though, especially since Whedon has expressed a resistance to returning to the comic book genre any time soon after Age of Ultron last year.
On the same token, a musical crossover between two of the most popular comic book shows on the air right now, sounds just like the kind of idea that he would be interested in though. The crossover will take place in the 13th episodes of each show’s upcoming seasons as well, and will be made up of mostly pre-existing songs being performed by various members of each series.
If Whedon does end up signing on for the crossover as well, then this could just go from a crazy idea that could very well fail, to a crazy idea that could very well work. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
Supergirl is set to premiere its second season on October 10th, with The Flash returning for season 3 on October 4th.
But will he actually?

The concept sounds uniquely awesome.
Death threats over a storyline is ridiculous…and Gunn has some thoughts on the matter.
