February 26, 2015: Chyler Leigh and David Harewood Joing Supergirl TV CastPrint

Chyler Leigh David Harewood According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Grey's Anatomy" alum Chyler Leigh and "Homeland" vet David Harewood†have both been cast in roles for the upcoming "Supergirl" TV series set to air on CBS.

    Harewood will co-star as DC Comics character Hank Henshaw. In the CBS take, the character is a one-time CIA agent who now runs the Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), which tracks extraterrestrial threats on Earth. In the comics on which the potential series is based, Hank Henshaw is Cyborg Superman.

    Leigh, whose credits include NBC's Taxi Brooklyn, will play Alexandra "Alex" Danvers, the confident foster sister of Kara. Fascinated by Kara's powers from a young age, Alex developed a lifelong obsession with science that inspired her to become a doctor.

Additionally, Andrew Kreisberg ("The Flash" and "Arrow") has joined Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler as a writer and executive producer.

To date, in addition to those mentioned above, the cast consists of Melissa Benoist as Kara/Supergirl, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Laura Benanti as Alura Zor-El, and Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant.

The "Supergirl" pilot is expected to debut around September this year.


February 26, 2015: From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman PodcastPrint

From Crisis to Crisis Welcome to the 183rd episode of From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast! This podcast has a simple premise; examine just about every Superman comic published between Man of Steel #1 in 1986 to Adventures of Superman #649 in 2006 in an informative and hopefully entertaining format.

Part index. Part commentary. Part history lesson. All podcast.

THE COUNTDOWN TO ZERO CONTINUES!

ZERO HOUR marches on with Mike and Jeff delving even deeper into this reality changing event. In ZERO HOUR #2 the future is threatened and a new villain emerges. Then in ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #516 Superman finds himself in a very different Metropolis protected not by the Man of Steel but by the Alpha Centurion. The crossovers continue with DETECTIVE COMICS #678 (Batman learns the shocking truth about the night his parents died), OUTSIDERS #11 (which in all honesty has nothing whatsoever to do with ZERO HOUR and the boys are kind of curious why it was considered a crossover issue), JUSTICE LEAGUE TASK FORCE #16 (more on the hero known as Triumph), L.E.G.I.O.N. #70 (the final issue of that series) and TEAM TITANS #24 (also the final issue of that series).

Next Time: Y'all might want to set some time aside if you are reading ahead because there are a lot of books on the docket. ZERO HOUR #1, ACTION COMICS #703, LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #61, GUY GARDNER WARRIOR #24, CATWOMAN #14, ROBIN #10, JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL #68, DARKSTARS #24, ANIMA #7, DAMAGE #6 and GREEN ARROW #90!

You can subscribe to the show in two ways. First there is the RSS Feed and there is also the iTunes link. You can also download the episode directly.

If you want to comment on the show or contact the hosts you can always private message Mike and Jeff, leave comments here or email them at fromcrisistocrisis@gmail.com. All questions, concerns, fears, trepidations and cheap shots are welcome.


Mild Mannered Reviews - Batman/Superman #19Print

Batman/Superman #19

Mild Mannered Reviews - Batman/Superman #19

Scheduled to arrive in stores: February 18, 2015

Cover date: April 2015

"Phantoms"

Writer: Greg Pak
Penciller: Adrian Syaf
Inker: Adrian Syaf
Cover: Adrian Syaf, Jonathan Glapion, Ulises Arreola

Reviewed by: Alisa Lea Gossage

    Pak has used this issue to setup the throw-down that is going to happen in the next two issues. And I say, "Good job!" Superman and Supergirl are without their powers, so they are going to have to rely on brain rather than brawn to defeat their foe. I like the, "How are they going to get out of THIS mess," aspect of this issue.

    There's a lot going on in the story. We have the action, mystery, then revelation. But there's more. I like how Pak has made this story very personal for Superman. Outside of Kandor, his loved ones are getting hurt, then he finds out that lies are being told about him and his family. To top it off, Kal-El finds out that he has more living family members. Superman must be going through so many emotions - from anger to outrage to joy.

February 25, 2015: Jeff King Shares "Convergence" SecretsPrint

Convergence ComicBookResources.com sat down with Jeff King, the lead writer on DC's "Convergence" event taking place across April/May, to get a clearer insight into what we can expect from the villains and heroes of this story. Here's part of that interview...

    We've known Brainiac as a collector of worlds, but Telos as a new force seems to be an offshoot of him that has his own ideas. Where does this new character diverge from his "Father" and how does that complicate the story?

    You must be prescient! Have you ever been a mind reader? [Laughs] Without saying too much about it, I will say that Brainiac and Telos are intimately connected, and we're going to reveal something about the meta history of Brainiac's role in the DCU. That's connected to what Grant Morrison has been doing in "Multiversity," and it speaks to some ideas that came through in "Doomed" and in "Action Comics" #35. I can tell you that we're going to have a rich understanding of those characters, and you're going to see a very complicated relationship between Brainiac and Telos. Initially, the odds for our heroes are not going to be pretty because of that.

    As all this is going on, there is this multitude of two-issue tie-in series which revisit past eras of the DC Multiverse. And we've noticed that those minis roll out week-by-week with each new wave addressing a different event in DC's past from "Flashpoint" to "Zero Hour" to "Crisis" and so on. Can we assume that the story of the main "Convergence" series will also kind of rotate through those past eras as each new weekly issue arrives?

    That's a really good question - and the answer is that, in the unfolding of the conflicts that have been set up by Brainiac's original plan, you'll see an intention to go back through that timeline - that series of consecutive events. But other than that, everything is leading up to one final conflict, and you'll see that in our story.

    As you're very new to writing comic books, how have you responded to playing in the DC Universe? Is there any one character or franchise that you've found yourself most drawn to as you go?

    Oh jeez. [Laughs] I think the relationships in the Bat family and also all of the connections between the characters I didn't formerly understand or appreciate that I do now - I couldn't even begin to start! Every event that's happened up to this point, whether it be "Flashpoint" or "Zero Hour" or "Kingdom Come," all inform and serve as background for what's to come in "Convergence," but with a twist.

Read the entire interview at the CBR website.


February 25, 2015: Melissa Benoist Embracing Supergirl RolePrint

Melissa Benoist Speaking at this past weekend's Independent's Spirit Awards, Melissa Benoist spoke with ComicBookResources.com about being cast to play Kara/Supergirl in the upcoming CBS TV series.

    "What's so wonderful about her is that she is such a relatable character, amongst her powers," said Benoist. "What I'm the most excited about is telling a story about a human being really realizing their potential and their strength, and I think that's something that everyone will root for and want in their own lives - I'm really excited about that."

    While Benoist would not reveal if she would be wearing any version of the traditional Supergirl costume in the series - or a superhero costume at all - she did reveal that she's taken a good look at the comic book suit, including its often micro-mini hemline.

    "It's a little daunting," she laughed. "It's daunting, but that's good. I like being pushed. I work well under pressure."

To date the cast consists of Melissa Benoist as Kara/Supergirl, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Laura Benanti as Alura Zor-El, and Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant.

The "Supergirl" pilot, which is penned by Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow), both of whom will be executive producers alongside Sarah Schechter (of Berlanti Productions) and Warner Bros. TV, is expected to debut around September this year.

February 24, 2015: Hans Zimmer Talks About Scoring "Batman v Superman"Print

Hans Zimmer MTV caught up with Hans Zimmer on the red carpet at the 87th Academy Awards this week, and asked him where things are at with the musical score for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", and whether he'll be creating individual themes for all the characters, including Wonder Woman and Aquaman.

    "I've got a couple of ideas," Zimmer said about the general score.

    When asked if he'd be writing individual themes for all of the different heroes in the film, he replied: "I'm trying, I'll put it that way. We're in early days. But yes, of course, ideally that's what you want to do."

    The subject of whether Zimmer is aware if he'll score anymore DC movies also came up, though Zimmer says it's too early for that. "Look, the studio†is going to hedge its bet, if I ruin this one... And at the same time you have to remember I come from ten years of doing Batman, so it's really important to me not to betray the work we did with Chris [Nolan]."

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" will be released to theatres on March 25, 2016.
