But Brainiac quickly discovers Earth has a "firewall" - the Justice League. When Brainiac cleverly displaces several members of the Justice League to other time periods in Earth's history, Batman, Flash and Cyborg must build and use the Cosmic Treadmill to race across time to retrieve their comrades - while members of the Legion of Super Heroes attempt to hold off Brainiac's assault. Only time will tell in this battle for the fate of the Earth and the Justice League!

February 5, 2016: Additional Characters Listed for The Flash/Supergirl Crossover EpisodePrint

Worlds Finest As we reported a few days ago, The Flash will cross over to join forces with Supergirl in an episode of "Supergirl" scheduled to air on CBS on Monday, March 28.

Yesterday Grant Gustin, who plays The Flash on the hit TV series of the same name, posted an image of the front page of the episode's script to his Instagram account. Not only did that image reveal that the title of the episode is "Worlds Finest", but upon further investigation you can make out the names of other characters who will also be involved in this episode.

Superman fan Ryan Ottney changed the contrast levels on the image of the script, which reveals that the page below the front cover includes the cast listing. Lucky for us you can make out that three of the guest appearances in this episode include Lucy Lane, Siobhan Smythe/Silver Banshee and Leslie Willis/Livewire.

Siobhan Smythe (aka Silver Banshee) is being played by Italia Ricci. While Leslie Willis (aka Livewire) is played by Brit Morgan. Jenna Dewan-Tatum plays Lucy Lane of course.

The "Worlds Finest" crossover episode, which is noted as being episode 18, is written by Greg Berlanti with teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg and Michael Grassi.

February 4, 2016: Zack Snyder Talks About "Man of Steel" and DC's TV PropertiesPrint

Batman v Superman Speaking on the Hall of Justice Podcast, director Zack Snyder spoke in detail about the new film, reactions to the "Man of Steel," and his feelings on the current DC Television shows.

In regards to the criticism some fans directed at "Man of Steel", Snyder said, "People are always like 'you changed Superman'. If you're a comic book fan, you know that I didn't change Superman. If you know the true canon, you know that I didn't change Superman. If you're a fan of the old movies, yeah I changed him a bit."

As for the DC TV landscape, Snyder exclaimed, "This is the bottom line for me. I have 100% respect and love for what they're doing on TV. I think it's amazing. The joy and the fun of them speaks to the iconic, graphic nature of these characters. These characters are bigger than any of the actors playing them. Long after I'm done making a Batman v Superman movie, there will be someone else who makes it. It's almost like an American tradition now we've established that these characters will be played again and again, and they exist outside of us in this moment.

I think that's sort of the thing I've embraced, and as opposed to trying to shoehorn all of these storylines into a single universe, we let the characters exist in multi-universe, and therefore it's a lot more fun and a lot more value for the audience. They get to see their favourite and most beloved characters on different adventures at the same time in different universes and it really makes the meal a lot richer and a lot more fun. We get to go with these guys in all different directions and that's really the joy of what we're trying to do over here at DC."

February 4, 2016: Bryan Singer's Thoughts on "Superman Returns"Print

Superman Returns In an interview with Empire magazine, Bryan Singer reflected on directing "Superman Returns" and why the film misfired with fans.

    "It was a movie made for a certain kind of audience. Perhaps more of a female audience. It wasn't what it needed to be, I guess. I think I could lop the first quarter off and start the movie a bit more aggressively and maybe find a way to start the movie with the jet disaster sequence or something. I could have grabbed the audience a little more quickly. I don't know what would have helped. Probably nothing. If I could go again, I would do an origin. I would reboot it."

Interestingly, Singer had tentative plans in place for a sequel to "Superman Returns" which would have been titled "Man of Steel".

    "We did explore it a little. Just hammering out ideas. I think Darkseid was going to be the villain. It was pretty world-destroying, actually."

While those plans never got off the ground, a lack of interest from Warner Bros. saw the direct move on to a different project.

    "I ended up having the opportunity to go and make Valkyrie, and I think the studio lost interest at that point... I can't say it was all the studio's fault and I can't say it was all my fault. It just fizzled out."

February 4, 2016: First Look at Daniel DiMaggio as Young Kal-El on "Supergirl"Print

CBS has released two new images from an upcoming episode of "Supergirl", giving us our first look at actor Daniel DiMaggio as young Kal-El.

Young Kal-El

In this episode, when a parasitic alien attaches itself to Kara and traps her in a dream world where her family is alive and her home planet was never destroyed, Kara's beloved cousin Kal-El joins her and her parents in domestic Kryptonian bliss, where neither of them needed to escape to Earth, or become super heroes.

Young Kal-El

Titled "For The Girl Who Has Everything", this episode is scheduled to air on Monday, February 8 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET) on the CBS Television Network.


February 4, 2016: The Flash/Supergirl Crossover Episode Titled "Worlds Finest"Print

Worlds Finest Grant Gustin, who plays The Flash on the hit TV series of the same name, has revealed via Instagram that the title of the episode in which his character speeds to National City for an upcoming meeting with Kara on "Supergirl", will be "Worlds Finest".

With no mention of Superman or Supergirl in either "The Flash" or "Arrow" TV shows, speculation is that "Supergirl" may be set on a different Earth in the Multiverse. Which may be why the title of this episode is "Worlds Finest" rather than the more well known "World's Finest".

The "Worlds Finest" crossover episode, which is noted as being episode 18 in what we know to be a 20 episode first season, is scheduled to air on March 28 on CBS.

    Today, many mainstream comics suffer from decompression, or writing for the trade. For this reason, fans want short arcs or one-shots. But those formats make it difficult for big ideas, like the one Hitch has developed in this arc, to breathe. Instead of stretching the story out into a twelve issue arc, Hitch needs to develop his story into a twelve issue arc. There's a difference, but unfortunately, this writer's strength is not story development.

February 3, 2016: "Supergirl" Episode Review - S01E13 "Bizarro"Print

Season 1, Episode 11 'Strange Visitor From Another Planet' Superman Homepage reviewer T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao) reviews episodes from the new "Supergirl" TV series, airing on CBS.

Check out his review of the 12th episode in which Kara faces off against her mirror image when Bizarro (Hope Lauren), a twisted version of Supergirl, sets out to destroy her. Also, Kara grows closer with Cat's son, Adam (Blake Jenner).

    The biggest concern in reviewing Supergirl for this reviewer, is how to tackle an episode that isn't enjoyable. Thus far, Supergirl has provided solid and consistent entertainment, and has steadily, progressively improved with every episode, with the exception of "Blood Bonds," and still has much room to grow. The biggest detraction heaved on the show is to dismiss it as "Superman in a skirt". The statement isn't without some credence, as like Mary Marvel before her, Supergirl was introduced as a female counterpart to an already established male hero i.e. we've got the whole demo covered. Although, Supergirl could easily be pigeonholed in such a manner, the show, much like Sterling Gates and Jamal Igle's excellent run on the comic book, has firmly established Kara as her own person, a character as heroic as her cousin, Superman, but still different, with concerns and day-to-day doings that aren't the mirror image of the Man of Tomorrow. Similarities will exist, and these are for obvious reasons, but those likenesses bond Supergirl to a greater story, dynasty, and destiny. So, when we see Bizarro make an appearance on Supergirl, the knee-jerk reaction would be to voice how the show is taking Superman's rogues for her. Well, of course, that is the truth... but they are doing it so well.
