CBS Reveals What the Future Holds for Supergirl


Today, fans of the new show Supergirl finally received some news they’ve been waiting for since the show based on the DC Comics character premiered back in October. When CBS committed to the series in September, their initial order was for 13 episodes, with a further full season order being contingent upon the performance of the show. Today CBS gave word about the future of the show. For fans, the news is good, although Supergirl is not going to get the 22 episodes typical of a full season order. (more…)

Arrow co-creator and executive producer Greg Berlanti had a life before superheroes. True, he is now the center of the DC Comics TV Universe that includes Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow, but once upon a time, Berlanti was more concerned about the average everyday normal teenager. He got his start on Dawson’s Creek and then created Everwood, the story a brilliant brain surgeon that ups and moves with his children to a small Colorado town after his wife dies. How is this related to Arrow? Well, one of the Everwood actors is coming to Star City, and it looks like he’s the reason and old friend is coming back to town. (more…)


The second DC Comics spin-offs from the CW‘s successful Arrow is coming to television and we’ve got a new trailer to prove it. Producer Greg Berlanti is once again expanding the CW’s superhero lineup with Legends of Tomorrow, the first of the CW’s lineup to feature a superhero team that includes Victor Garber and Franz Drameh as Firestorm, Caity Lotz as White Canary, Brandon Routh as the Atom, Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold, Dominic Purcell as Heatwave, Ciara Renee as Hawkgirl, Falk Hentschel as Hawkman, and Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter. Check it out after the jump. (more…)


It’s still a couple of months until the release of Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, the all important linchpin to the burgeoning DC Comics Cinematic Universe currently under construction. A key component of that launch is the appearance of Wonder Woman played by Gal Gadot, and the internet’s been putting 50/50 odds on whether or not she will be able to stand out as the third leg of DC’s vaunted triad. But ready or not, Gadot is about to stand as Wonder Woman in the character’s first solo feature film. Yup, breaking news today, that after literally decades of development, Wonder Woman is going before the cameras. (more…)


If you think this sounds like something out of the 90s, you can be forgiven. There was a storyline that ran through the Superman books in the mid-1990s called “The Death of Clark Kent,” where one of the Man of Steel’s adversaries learned his secret identity and launched an attack to destroy him, forcing Superman and his adoptive parents to become fugitives flying under the radar in a Winnebago. But this time is different, because in the 90s Supes never got around to choosing a new name for himself, and this time, he has. Say hello to truck driver Archie Clayton: Last Son of Krypton.

Without reservation, we can say that Frank Miller‘s The Dark Knight Returns is one of the most seminal graphic novels ever published. The sequel, The Dark Knight Strikes Back, not so much. The latter book, published in 2000, is largely seen as part of an overall decline in quality from Miller in the last several years, including heavily critiqued works like 300, Holy Terror, and All-Star Batman and Robin: The Boy Wonder. Now those books may have their good points too, but Miller criticism will go to a whole new level if the following piece of art is a hint at what we might be getting with the upcoming The Dark Knight Returns III: The Master Race.

There were many changes to DC Comics‘ lore when the publisher relaunched all its books in 2011 with the New 52, and not many of them were greeted with cheers from the comic book fandom. However, one of the much-loved new additions was “The Court of Owls,” the storyline that kicked off the re-launched Batman title and introduced the titular villains to the Dark Knight’s vast menagerie of weird and spooky bad guys. Naturally, if it’s popular with Batman fans, then it’s a no-brainer for the producers of Gotham. There have been rumours that the Court of Owls is coming to the Fox drama, and now showrunner Bruno Heller has confirmed that yes, the Owls are coming. But when?  (more…)


The new TV season is officially underway, but most of the superhero action is still a couple of weeks off, and more than a month away in the specific case of Supergirl. The new DC Comics inspired drama will debut at the end of October on CBS, but in the interest of striking while the iron is hot, the network has launched a new trailer with “never before seen” footage from the series. Although fans have been suspicious since the first trailer debuted earlier this year, it’s hard not to anticipate Supergirl being one of the biggest shows of the fall. So does this new footage make the case that Supergirl will fly high ratings-wise? (more…)

Is There A New Justice League Cartoon In The Works?


Well, the internet seems to think there is… This morning a picture started making the rounds on Reddit (and we all know that they can’t post something there if it’s not true…) reportedly from an alleged Warner Bros. Animation office of some kind showing what appears to be posters of possible animated productions that the studio may or may not be producing. One of these supposed posters features what could possible be an indication of what could be an all new Justice League cartoon… Begin wild speculation now! (more…)


There’s no shortage of superheroes on TV, and we don’t just mean the ones that topline their own shows. Nope, if you have a superhero show, it’s just an invitation to have more superheroes come and help save the day because that’s just the way it goes. Arrow welcomed Black Canary, The Flash ushered in Firestorm, and it sounds like Supergirl will play host to Red Tornado some point later this fall. Long a member of the expansive DC Comics family of heroes, Red Tornado’s never really gotten his due, but maybe now, with the help of the Girl of Steel, he can get his 15 minutes of mainstream fame.
