May 19, 2016: The Fate of Clark Kent - Comic Books v MoviesPrint

Who Will Win? Clark v Clark: How The Movies and The Comics Dealt With Doomsday and the Mild Mannered Reporter

By Michael Bailey

Before We Begin

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE has been out for nearly two months now and I am working under the assumption that everyone that wanted to see the film in the theaters has already done so barring life events and acts of God. In case you are one of those that haven't seen the film but wanted to or are waiting for the home video release then consider this your spoiler warning. I am going to be discussing certain events from BATMAN V SUPERMAN in detail and will give away something very important from the end of that film. Bookmark this article to read later if you don't want to be spoiled.

Still with us?

Good...then let's get started.

May 19, 2016: The CW Officially Announces "Supergirl" Season 2Print

Supergirl The CW has officially announced that "Supergirl" Season 2 will air on Monday nights at 8.00pm.

"The Flash" remains in its 8.00pm Tuesday time slot, and with "Arrow" on at 8.00pm on Wednesdays, and "DC Legends of Tomorrow" on at 8.00pm on Thursday nights, it's a CW four night fest for fans next season.

A four-way crossover between the shows is reportedly in the works.

Interestingly, the move from CBS to The CW might not have happened, as CBS president Glenn Geller revealed that the TV network was very close to renewing "Supergirl" regardless.

    "The ratings did start a little higher and they came down a bit," CBS president Glenn Geller said Wednesday morning at a press conference at the network's New York City headquarters. "I think it found the right home. It's a win-win for us. We co-own the CW and we made a great deal with Warner Bros."

    Gellar added, "Who's to say if we hadn't made that deal that we wouldn't have picked it up."

May 19, 2016: NBC's New DC "Powerless" TV Trailer Released OnlinePrint

NBC has release the first trailer for their new DC Comics TV series "Powerless".

Powerless

In the first comedy series set in the universe of DC Comics, Vanessa Hudgens ("Grease Live," "High School Musical") plays Emily, a spunky young insurance adjuster specializing in regular-people coverage against damage caused by the crime-fighting superheroes. It's when she stands up to one of these larger-than-life figures (after an epic battle messes with her commute) that she accidentally becomes a cult "hero" in her own right ... even if it's just to her group of lovably quirky co-workers. Now, while she navigates her normal, everyday life against an explosive backdrop, Emily might just discover that being a hero doesn't always require superpowers.

The "Powerless" concept by "Z" creator Ben Queen is a workplace comedy set at one of the worst insurance companies in America... which exists within the DC Universe. Ben Queen is the writer/executive producer, with Michael Patrick Jann set to direct and executive produce.


May 19, 2016: First Look - "DC Universe: The Exhibit" at Warner Bros. Studio Tour HollywoodPrint

Exhibit Today Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood and DC Entertainment revealed the newest star attraction on the Warner Bros. lot in DC Universe: The Exhibit, featuring the greatest Super Heroes and Super-Villains with comic book fans Gene Simmons (KISS) and Jordan Clarkson (Los Angeles Lakers). As part of the newest addition to the Tour, which opens to the public on May 24, 2016, guests will be able to explore authentic props and costumes from the highly anticipated summer film "Suicide Squad" two months prior to the film's debut in theaters. Highlights of the interactive experience include the original Belle Reve prison cell set once occupied by Harley Quinn (portrayed on-screen by Margot Robbie) in "Suicide Squad," as well as the Bat lab in the Batcave from Ben Affleck's first outing as Batman in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," which has garnered more than $870 million to date at the worldwide box office. The exhibit also pays homage to the origins of DC Comics, including all seven Super Heroes of the Justice League, exclusively at Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood.

This new DC-inspired addition follows last summer's grand opening of the interactive Stage 48: Script to Screen, which anchors the three-hour Studio Tour. At the Tour, guests explore the real sets and soundstages where some of the greatest names in entertainment have made history.

Exhibit "Since 1934, DC Comics has built a legacy of creating the world's greatest Super Heroes and Super-Villains," said Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood's Executive Director, Danny Kahn. "DC Universe: The Exhibit gives you the chance to explore the world of these characters from their first comic book appearance to our latest feature film."

Inside DC Universe: The Exhibit, Studio Tour guests will be treated to an exclusive sneak peek at David Ayer's upcoming "Suicide Squad" as they explore authentic props and costumes from the film on a rotating basis. Assets from characters Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Joker, Boomerang, Enchantress, Katana, Diablo, Slipknot, Rick Flag and Killer Croc will interchange throughout the summer in advance of the film's August 5 release.

The exhibit also showcases this year's blockbuster "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" through an interactive experience, paying homage to the original Super Hero, Superman, and nocturnal crime fighter, Batman. Guests will have the opportunity to get up close to kryptonite, Superman's sole weakness, and see striking Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman costumes, as well as the costumes of Lois, Clark, Alfred, and Bruce Wayne, original Batcave set pieces, and much more.

None of this issue makes a lot of sense, but neither does Injustice, for the most part. Harley's analysis of herself is merely an excuse to use her, due to her popularity, and fill as many panels with Quinn as possible. The Flash visiting the Rogues to pay his respects could be a strong moment, only readers aren't given any backstory as to the relationship Flash has with the Rogues in this universe, so that leaves those interested to assume it's equivalent to what has occurred in the DC Universe proper, where the Flash definitely wouldn't respect anything the Rogues had done, including attempting to kill him. The fight between Harley and Shazam won't go anywhere, green pill or not, as it's already set in video game stone what's going to occur. Don't believe me? Check issue #22 and come back here for a brief history on Captain Marvel, the hero erroneously labelled as Shazam, and for all the wrong reasons.

"Chapter 8"

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

The plot thickens, and well at that. Again, Gates is showing and proving that he can make the most of the serial format, delivering another well-crafted issue, and upping the ante for the readers return. Adventures of Supergirl packs more into its compressed format, than the average comic renders in three issues, and decompressed at that. Gates' previous run on Supergirl is overlooked as seminal runs go, but hopefully his current work on Adventures of Supergirl will establish him as the go to writer for the character. The only drawback to the story is the ball-and-chain in the form of Alex Danvers. Alex has too much time with Supergirl, sister or not, and it would refreshing to see Supergirl adventure with another supporting character. My personal preference would be Jimmy Olsen, if he's handled like his classic self, the Action Man adventurer, and less Billy Beefcake.

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

Adventures of Supergirl is what any writer should do to take advantage of a good situation. Supergirl fertile territory for storytelling, inasmuch as she has not quite been defined in comparison to the hero that inspired her, or other well-established heroes. Gates turns in a strong showing the Maid of Might, giving readers a remarkably confident, efficient, and intrepid Supergirl, one who is in control of her situation, as such as the aforesaid may attempt to spiral away from her. The best about this storyline is that it isn't over. Digital first comics were made for the serial format, and where print comics are decompressed to ridiculous proportions, Gates has been doing the opposite with Supergirl to stoke interest, entertain, and make readers come back for more... this reader, at the very least.

May 18, 2016: Geoff Johns Talks About "Hope and Optimism" for DC's CharactersPrint

DC Films

Earlier today we reported on the news that Geoff Johns and Jon Berg have been elevated to co-runners of the DC Films. Later in the day Geoff Johns greeted a group of journalists in Manhattan to talk about the DC brand and "Rebirth", but the reporters wanted to know about the story that broke earlier in the day via The Hollywood Reporter.

He said he couldn't confirm the story, but that "you can connect the dots." Even though he declined to directly address that topic, he was more than willing to talk about where he thinks the DC brand needs to go. One phrase came out of his mouth over and over again: "hope and optimism." Though Johns would never speak ill of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or its director, Zack Snyder - Johns is nothing if not loyal to the company that made him a star - it's crystal clear that his vision for DC looks a lot brighter than the much-maligned grimness Snyder provided earlier this year.

DC's nascent cinematic universe has so far depicted Superman as an angry god; a violent, alien entity that needs to be kept in check. This morning, Johns offered a vastly different take on the character's archetype. "I think people make a mistake when they say, 'Superman's not relatable because he's so powerful,'" he said. "I'm like, 'Are you kidding me? He's a farmboy from Kansas who moves to the city and just wants to do the best he can with what he's got.' That's the most relatable character in the world."

May 18, 2016: Geoff Johns to Co-Run DC FilmsPrint

Warner Bros. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Geoff Johns and Jon Berg have been elevated to co-runners of the DC Universe of films.

    Current executive vp Jon Berg and Geoff Johns, DC's chief content officer who successfully launched the comics label's foray into television, will co-run DC Films, according to multiple sources.

    Berg was already working on BvS, Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman and Justice League. He also is a conduit to Ben Affleck, having worked with the actor-filmmaker on Argo and Live by Night, the crime thriller Affleck recently wrapped as director, writer and star for the studio.

    Comics writer-turned-exec Johns, meanwhile, masterminded the ascension of shows such as Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl and is the writer behind DC's upcoming Rebirth, the publishing side's reboot of its titles that will play out over the summer months. He is not leaving DC, according to sources, but adding film to his portfolio.
