June 23, 2016: Dean Cain Talks About Season 2 of "Supergirl"Print

Dean Cain Co-hosting Access Hollywood Live this past week with Kit Hoover, Dean Cain spoke about Season 2 of "Supergirl", his thoughts on Melissa Benoist, filming in Vancouver, and his advice to new Superman Tyler Hoechlin.

He jokes that he wanted to continue playing the role of the Man of Steel... "First of all, I'm a little disappointed it wasn't me. I wanted to play two roles."

He also added, "No, my first piece of advice for Tyler is he's gonna have to wax his chest. You can't have any hair peeking over that 'S' there."

"I don't mind that there's a new Superman all the time. It's a good thing."

June 23, 2016: A Look Back in Time - 1940s Superman Gasoline AdsPrint

During the late 1940s/early 1950s Superman starred in a number of Gasoline advertisements for Conoco N-Tane. ComicsAlliance.com has published an article all about them...

When you get right down to it, superheroes make the perfect pitchmen. They're trusted servants of the public good who are always on the side of goodness and morality, but they're also wholly owned by corporations that are usually willing to use that fictional integrity to market pizzas or credit cards. That odd disconnect occasionally leads to some pretty weird stuff, and rarely are they weirder than in a series of ads from 1946 in which Superman endorsed Conoco's N-Tane Gasoline.

Recently unearthed by artist JON MORRIS at his Tumblr, the ads are weird not because of the product Superman is endorsing, but by the approach, which claims the gas is so good that Superman will be jealous of you for buying it. It's... pretty weird.

June 23, 2016: Supergirl Pro Tournament Returns to CaliforniaPrint

Supergirl Pro Warner Bros. Consumer Products celebrates women empowerment with the return of the 10th Annual Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro, the largest female surf contest in the world! As the Supergirl S-Shield represents bravery and strength, it is more than fitting for this competition, where some of the best U.S. female surfers will be making a huge splash.

PAUL MITCHELL SUPERGIRL PRO RETURNS TO OCEANSIDE, CALIFORNIA JULY 22-24 FOR ONLY WSL 6-STAR FEMALE SURFING COMPETITION IN THE U.S.

WORLD CHAMPION CARISSA MOORE, ALANA BLANCHARD, COURTNEY CONLOGUE, COCO HO, MALIA MANUEL, SAGE ERICKSON AND DEFENDING CHAMPION TATIANA WESTON-WEBB HEADLINE THE FIELD OF TOP PROS IN THE LARGEST FEMALE SURFING EVENT IN THE WORLD

ASA Entertainment announced yesterday that the World Surf League (WSL) 6-Star Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro will take place for the ninth consecutive year at the Oceanside Pier in Oceanside, Calif. from July 22-24, 2016. The nationally televised event is the largest female surf contest in the world, with 112 of the planet's top pros expected to compete. Admission to the event is free.

The Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro will serve as the lone women's WSL qualifying event scheduled in the U.S. for the 2016 season and plays a critical role for surfers looking to solidify their position on the 2017 WSL Women's World Championship Tour (WCT).

"With the Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro currently representing the only women's qualifying event in the U.S., this contest is extremely important in the girls' qualification process for next year's WCT," said Jessi Miley-Dyer, WSL Women's Tour Manager. "This event is an amazing combination of the best surfers on the planet with many of the new faces just beginning their pro journey. That's just one of the things that makes the event completely unique with the sport of competitive surfing."

Supergirl Pro

Some of the world-class surfers registered to compete include current World Champion Carissa Moore (Oahu, HI), current #1 ranked surfer Courtney Conlogue (Santa Ana, CA), Alana Blanchard (Kauai, HI), Malia Manuel (Kauai, HI), Coco Ho (Oahu, HI), Laura Enever (Sydney, Australia), Alessa Quizon (Honolulu, HI), Bianca Buitendag (Victoria Bay, South Africa), Nikki Van Dijk (Victoria, Australia), Pauline Ado (Bayonne, France), Sage Erickson (Malibu, CA), and 2015 Supergirl Pro Champion, Tatiana Weston-Webb (Kauai, HI).

"I can't begin to explain how excited all of the girls are about this event," said Malia Manuel, the 7th ranked surfer in the world and the 2013 Supergirl Pro champion. "It's so amazing to have a contest like this in the US that focuses entirely on women's surfing. I've been to the event every year, and it gets bigger and better each time."

In addition to the best surfing talent in the world, the Supergirl Pro features an action-packed Festival Village with nine musical artists performing live on the Supergirl Music Stage, art, yoga, fitness, dance, seminars, autographs from the pros, hair styling by Paul Mitchell, a skateboarding competition, a food truck experience and many other activities.

Two of the headline artists performing in the Supergirl Concert Series include multi-platinum singer/song-writers Cody Simpson and Daya, who between them have eight songs that have entered the Billboard Top 200.

New to the event in 2016 will be a Celebrity Surf Invitational to raise money and awareness for event charities, an all-female DJ Competition and a Female Leadership Summit panel discussion featuring successful women in entertainment, sports, media, education and business. The complete entertainment and music lineup slated for the Festival Village will be announced at a later date.

"We are really pleased about the expansion of the Paul Mitchell Supergirl Pro in 2016, both in and out of the water," said Rick Bratman, CEO of ASA Entertainment, the event's management company and one of the leading producers of action sports event and television programming in the US. "Each year we look to add elements that will not only be additive to the entire event experience, but will also further the event's mission of providing opportunities for young women. It is incredibly gratifying to have watched the event become the largest female surf contest in WSL history, and we are proud to have provided a platform for important causes such as sustainability, bullying prevention, breast cancer awareness and female empowerment."

"Paul Mitchell is thrilled to be involved with such an amazing group of women, and we are proud to have the largest field of talent in women's surfing competing at our event," said Julie Solwold, Vice President of Global Sports and Events at John Paul Mitchell Systems. "These girls have style, grace, beauty and athleticism that align perfectly with our brand, and we are excited to help them gain much-deserved exposure for their sport."

"Warner Bros Consumer Products is proud to help celebrate women's empowerment and shine a spotlight on strong female role models for the 10th consecutive year of the Supergirl series," said Pam Lifford, President, Warner Bros Consumer Products. "The Supergirl S-Shield represents bravery and strength, making it a symbol perfectly suited for the surf Super Heroes competing at this inspiring event."

The event will run on Friday, July 22 and Saturday, July 23, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday, July 24, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
