Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl) continues to grow his super hero television series empire with a new series Black Lightning. FOX has committed to a pilot for the new series written by Salim and Mara Brock Akil (The Game, Being Mary Jane). What will the new series look like? (more…)
Greg Berlanti, the producer who has already given us superhero hits like Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl is ready to take his talents once again to the big screen. Although his last superhero film Green Lantern was a critical and commercial dud, he’s gotten enough street cred to give it another try. Berlanti is going to develop a film based on the Booster Gold character from DC comics. Booster Gold although has no superpowers, wears a special suit that gives him superhuman abilities as well as other equipment from the future. The film is currently in development with Warner Bros and will have Zack Stentz attached as the screenwriter and Berlanti as the director. With such an obscure character that only hardcore fans know, many are wondering how this character will fit into the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). Could Booster get involved with the Justice League somewhere down the line?
Super producer Greg Berlanti has been on a roll in the superhero world. The man has made it so that we have a DC Comics show on almost every day of the week on the CW network. We already have Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and now have Supergirl coming over from CBS this fall. With all the “Arrowverse” shows under one roof, we’re also getting crossover shows for each of those characters working together as well. Needless to say, Berlanti is now the king of network superheroes… and he’s not done yet.
Greg Berlanti‘s many comic book-based series have their faults, but casting hasn’t really been one of them. Can you picture a better, more intense Green Arrow than Stephen Amell, or a more dashing Flash than Grant Gustin, or a stronger – figuratively speaking – Supergirl than Melissa Benoist. Certainly, Berlanti’s proved himself casting superheroes, but the gang from Riverdale may be a whole new ball game. We have the first casting announcement for the CW series based on the long-running Archie comics, and reading the character descriptions you may end up having concerns about the direction Berlanti is taking this thing in.

One of the big twists in the Supergirl origin story is that while she was sent to Earth to protect Kal-El (Superman), she actually arrived on the planet after Kal-El had already grown up. In fact, for show runner Greg Berlanti‘s version Clark Kent had already made his appearance as the Man of Steel in the Man of Steel. So there wasn’t much for Kara (Melissa Benoist) to do, Superman could obviously take care of himself. So when it was announced that a young Clark Kent (Daniel DiMaggio) would be making an appearance on Supergirl, it left more than a few of us scratching our heads. Well, now we know how that is all happening and have your first look at young Kal-El. (more…)
The long rumor/speculated team-up between the CW’s Scarlet Speedster and CBS’s Girl of Tomorrow is finally official. Grant Gustin will blur the grand cosmic barriers that separate cable tiers to appear as Barry Allen/The Flash in an upcoming episode of CBS’s Supergirl (staring Melissa Benoist,) later this spring.

As the DC Extended Universe expands on the big screen and DC characters are taking over the small screen with The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, Gotham, and Supergirl (not to mention Lucifer, which will hit screens early next year), DC comics fans are more excited than they have been in years. After Warner Brothers announced their upcoming slate of DCEU films, which included solo movies from most of the Justice League as well as two Justice League movies, fans began to speculate as to which other characters from DC’s stable would show up on some screen, in some fashion. Well, DC fans, we have some absolutely stellar news for you: Booster Gold and Blue Beetle will be teaming up for a buddy-cop superhero movie that will be directed by Greg Berlanti. (more…)
Just when you think you’re out, they pull you back in. Of course, you didn’t really think Arrow was out, did you? Oliver Queen may have hung up his quiver at the end of season three, but since the CW renewed the show for a fourth season, it opened the inevitable return of the Emerald Archer to punish those that have failed Starling City. But since they made a pretty big deal about Oliver walking away, he’s going to need an outfit that says, “Yeah, I quit, but now I’m back and I mean business.” Et voila! This evening, the new Arrow outfit was revealed to the crowd come to hear about Arrow at San Diego Comic Con. (more…)
