August 26, 2015: Official Description for "Supergirl" Pilot EpisodePrint

Supergirl CBS has released an official press release for the pilot episode of "Supergirl", which includes a description and full cast listing.

"Pilot" - After 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be, on the series premiere of SUPERGIRL, Monday, Oct. 26 (8:30-9:30 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network. The series moves to its regular time period (8:00-9:00 PM) on Monday, Nov. 2.

SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El, Superman's (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents' help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later, at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant. She works alongside her friend and IT technician Winn Schott and famous photographer James Olsen, who Grant just hired away from the Daily Planet to serve as her new art director. However, Kara's days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw, head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime.

August 24, 2015: Henry Cavill Talks Lois Lane, Wonder Woman and Suicide SquadPrint

Superman Henry Cavill has been participating in a number of interviews as he travels the globe to promote his new film "The Man from UNCLE". During those interviews he has also been asked about "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". Here are a few quotes worth mentioning...

On strong women characters:

"Strong women are nothing new for the comic book world. I'm glad they are being represented a bit more in film and on TV. Wonder Woman has been around forever, she is an incredibly strong character. She can go toe-to-toe with Superman sometimes."

On Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman:

"Absolutely fantastic, yeah she's really cool, she makes a really cool Wonder Woman."

On who is better for Superman, Lois Lane or Wonder Woman:

"This is a very long discussion because there are a lot of questions to be asked and answered. I mean who is better for a super-powered alien, a human or a goddess? Yes, the goddess can do all the normal things, which we would think are normal in a relationship, and not have any fear of Superman. But you also need to have that baseline of humanity, which Lois provides. And literally keeps his feet on the ground, keeps him down to earth. So that's more of a debate than an answer."

Will Superman make a cameo appearance in the Suicide Squad movie:

"No."

But he did say that there's a possibility that Superman could appear in a Suicide Squad sequel.

August 24, 2015: Official Press Release Announcing "Lois Lane: Double Down"Print

Lois Lane: Double Down DC Comics' iconic character Lois Lane will be back for more in Lois Lane: Double Down, the second book in a new series from Switch Press, the Young Adult imprint of Capstone. Following the success of the first book in the series, Lois Lane: Fallout, author Gwenda Bond returns with a new story of the adventures of a teenage Lois Lane, as she begins to discover her passion for journalism and become the character loved by generations of fans.

"Lois Lane is an icon, one of the most well-known and enduring figures in American pop culture - and for good reason," says Bond. "She's a hero all of us can relate to. It's been a tremendous honor and a great pleasure to get to write about her in an all-new way, as a modern teenager, and I'm thrilled to be continuing her story in Double Down."

Lois Lane has been an integral part of the cultural landscape since her first appearance in Action Comics #1 in 1938, which also introduced the world to Superman. A Super Hero without superpowers, the character has been featured in a dizzying number of comic books, films, and television shows.

"Switch Press has been thrilled with the critical and fan response to Lois Lane: Fallout and we are all excited to see the series continue with Double Down," said Miles Stevens-Hoare, Managing Director of Capstone's Global Trade business. The Lois Lane series is produced through Capstone's licensing partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment.

In a starred review of Lois Lane: Fallout, Kirkus writes: "This first in a planned series gets plenty right. Lois is as fully rounded as she is in the comics, headstrong, capable and equipped with a solid moral compass ... [a] lighthearted and playful tone permeates the novel, making for a nifty investigative mystery akin to Veronica Mars or Buffy the Vampire Slayer ... a spectacular prose start for DC Comics' spectacular lady."

In The Comics Journal, comic book historian Tim Hanley writes: "Bond's Lois is a distillation of the most compelling traits of past incarnations of Lois Lane. She's got the brash ambition of 1938's Lois, the crusader for truth and justice qualities embodied by Margot Kidder, and the snark and smarts of Dana Delany's animated Lois. While she may just be a high school student, she's very much the Lois Lane that fans know and love."

Pre-order the "Lois Lane: Double Down" novel from our Online Store ahead of its released on May 1, 2016.

August 24, 2015: Jesse Eisenberg Says "Batman v Superman" is "Really Wonderful"Print

Lex Luthor Collider.com caught up with Jesse Eisenberg to chat with him about his new movie "American Ultra", but also asked him about "Batman v Superman", and his thoughts on being part of such a highly anticipated movie. Here's part of the interview...

    I do want to know what did you think it was going to be like being part of the movie, prior to signing on, and what has it been like having done the movie and sort of - because there is a huge amount of interest in the film. What's it been like for you?

    EISENBERG: I've never been involved for something that is parsed to this degree. Whether it be something that someone says that has some tangential relation to the movie or the trailer images that are released. It was initially surprising and fortunately the movie is really wonderful. So when people are parsing what the individuals images maybe be, the takeaway is how interesting the movie looks and how wonderful it is. You know, the script is phenomenal. Written by Chris Terrio, who is just brilliant. And Zack Synder is just visually, masterful. And I think everything that's been released and parsed within an in of its life has been received so well.

    Man of Steel is one of my favorite movies of the last few years. I love the movies so much. And everything I keep hearing about Batman v Superman is that Zack has crafted something wonderful. For you, when you were on set making it. Did you get the feeling that you were making this big movie? Or has Zack created this environment that has made you feel insulated from that kind of big budget, big movie pressure?

    EISENBERG: The latter. Absolutely. The way he shoots things - at least, insofar as my scenes were concerned - was very specifically and very simply a lot of my scenes are dialogue driven and it felt like I was on any other kind of intimate movie set. So watching that trailer for the first time, was when I really got a good sense of the overall movie, the look, and I thought it was really incredible.

    The environment on the set is one of respect and intimacy and allows the actors to do what actors do well even in the context of this huge and larger scope. And the production.
