"We're just starting to work on it," Berlanti said. "We haven't gone to the networks yet, so. I'll be happy, very excited to talk about it once we know where its home will be and that kind of stuff, but not at this moment."
Last week we reported on the news that DC Entertainment are actively pitching a live-action Supergirl TV series, with initial reports claiming that comic book writer and TV producer Michael Green was involved. However we now know that Green is not involved and that Greg Berlanti has teamed with script writer Ali Adler in the hopes of bringing to life a TV series about Kara Zor-El.
Presented in landscape format, the covers see Cooke blending his trademark vintage flair with the current iterations of DC's heroes. Here below is a look at the artwork for Cooke's covers for Action Comics #37, Batman/Superman #17, Justice League #37, Supergirl #37, Superman #37 and Superman/Wonder Woman #14.
It's expected that the shoot will involve the Batmobile, which was spotted on location, initially under wraps on a trailer.

When he arrives later this fall, Doomsday will appear as he did in the best-selling DC comic of all time, Superman #75, where this menace from the stars killed the Man of Steel. This fully articulated figure stands 9" tall and in scale to the 6" tall Superman figure. He includes the shredded cape of Superman, which is removable, and arrives in huge window box packaging celebrating the completion of the 6" DCU Signature Series line.

I'm still trying to get used to Lex Luthor playing a hero here, but I think it's going to be a really solid story to not only see Lex as one of the world's greatest heroes, but also to see what happens when he does inevitably betray the League, if in fact that is what happens. I really liked Superman's little monologue at the end of the issue about how when he first appeared in Metropolis, how corrupt and just evil Lex Luthor was. We Superman fans know this from his appearances in Action Comics, Superman Unchained, and Lobdell's Superman run, as well as even Forever Evil to an extent, however here in Justice League all we see him wanting to do is help and be a part of the League.
