They may not be knocking their movie adaptations out of the park like Marvel has done with its characters, but DC has been doing very well for itself on the small screen. Hits like Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl have been scoring record audiences and it looks like the trend has continued to shoot upwards. (more…)
The CW has been busy at SDCC with all new trailers for Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow! Oliver gets a new team, Legends gets some major new additions for season 2, and it looks like Barry’s decision last season is going to have some serious consequences. (more…)
Superhero nerds everywhere have recently been pelted with the mysterious announcement of the REBIRTH event, following a short teaser video that hints at a larger crisis which is probably heading toward New 52‘s way. While there has been no confirmation on whether or not this event will rework the DC continuity (Crisis-style), there has been some rampant speculation regarding the presence of a lot of Silver-Age heroes in the teaser’s line-up. The mystery is soon to be resolved, however, as the publisher recently went ahead to announce their full comic book line up for the duration of the event…
Dawn Of Justice hasn’t even been released and it has already been a point of contention, lots of hype and a torrent of fan speculation. Obviously, Warner Bros have a heck of a lot riding on the spanking new DC Movie Universe that they are going to throw at us and it seems like they are already pulling all the stops. Already, the new Suicide Squad trailer is ready to hit the Interwebs and the Cartoon Network animated series, DC Films Presents: The Dawn of the Justice League is about to prep us for the next big-budget incarnation of the Justice League of America.
In a concerted effort to get the hype-train rolling into full speed, Warner Bros has gone ahead to reveal their concept art for their new Justice League, as well as to present the full roster and look of Earth’s Bravest and Boldest.

The Flash has become one of the more delightful and decidedly awesome superhero shows on TV. Although the recipe of the story is a bit redundant from one episode to another (guy with superpower going nuts and Flash has to stop him over and over) and tends to be tremendously cheesy at times, the series is filled with excitement. It does not only make comic book fans jump off of their chairs in joy, but also introduces non-comic book fans into the DC-universe.
Ahead of the second seasons October 6th premier, The CW has just released a brief but exciting trailer. One that looks to live up to the promise of delving more into everything the character represents in DC Comics; including the introduction of some classic CW characters – such as original Flash Jay Garrick and Atom Smasher, played by Teddy Sears and WWE Superstar Adam “Edge” Copeland respectively. (more…)
The CW released a first look at Teddy Spears as the Golden Age Flash using a recreated classic Flash Comic Book Cover. It’s the fantastic Flash #123 by legendary artist Carmine Infantino, which features both the Modern Day and Golden Age Flash running on opposite sides of the same brick wall to save a person in trouble.

If you’ve been keeping track of the DC television universe, then it’s likely that you haven’t been disappointed by either Flash or Arrow. A combination of good writing, excellent casting and a commitment to keeping it comic book-y enough for the fanboys has made both of these shows successful enough to warrant continued seasons. When October rolls around, they’ll be coming back and it seems as if The Flash will be facing off against yet even more villains during the next run – Lewis Snart and Atom Smasher. (more…)
Mid-season finales really are an interesting concept. These finales effectively provide networks with two separate seasons within a single season to not only entertain and please audiences but to also draw in viewers for the next season. As such, many of these not-real-finales generally lead to some big reveal and leave audiences with a cliffhanger that is guaranteed to bring fans back once the snow starts to keep people indoors a bit in late January, early February. The Flash continues to set itself apart from the pack, as last night’s “finale” wound up tying up more loose ends than were left dangling by the end and even without that cliffhanger, viewers are definitely going to be returning once the new episodes begin airing. Warning: Spoilers ahead. (more…)
