Here's what took place in our first show for 2015:
Our next show will be broadcast on Monday, January 19 at 7.30pm PST in the U.S. (click here to check what time this is at your location).
To listen in visit www.SupermanHomepage.com/live at the designated time.
During the live broadcast you can phone (714) 242-6186 or click on the Skype icon (which will be available at the above link) during the show to be a caller and chat with us live "on air".
The "Supergirl" TV series is expected to have an element of crime solving, with serialized elements as well. "There will be [crime] cases, but what [executive producers] Ali Adler and Greg Berlanti pitched was a real series arc for her", explained Tassler. "The beauty of it is now with shows like Good Wife and Madam Secretary, you can have serialized story elements woven into a case of the week. She's a crime solver, so she's going to have to solve a crime. She's going to get a bad guy."
Kara was described as being "a very strong, independent young woman. She's coming into her own. She's dealing with family issues. She's dealing with work issues. It's a female empowerment story. If you look at the strong female characters we have on the air, it really is resonant of that... We're big feminists. It's her intellect, it's her skill, it's her smarts. It's all of those elements. It's not just her strength, which she does have."
As for casting, the show's creators are reportedly searching for a relative unknown to take on the role of Supergirl. "She's got to be an every woman," said Tassler. "She's got to be specific. She's got to be a terrific actor. I think back to having had the good fortune of being at Warner Bros. when we were doing Lois & Clark, the chemistry between Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher was really wonderful. So I think in this case, it's looking for someone who embodies both the freshness and the exuberance of being a young woman in today's challenging climate and being someone who can carry this kind of series on her shoulders. It's a big, big show."
While the search continues, a costume is ready for whoever wins the role... and Tassler is excited about everyone seeing Supergirl's costume, which was designed by Oscar winner Colleen Atwood, who also did the costumes for Arrow and The Flash. "We have seen the costume. Awesome costume."
So why did CBS jump at the opportunity to bring Supergirl to our TV screens? "For our network right now, what we did respond to was the character's humanity, the other characters in the show as well - the story trajectory and the character's arc and growth. These are all things that made her just imminently relatable, and made the story exciting. We made a decision based on the pitch that we heard."

"Home Is Where The Hell Is"
Writer: Greg Pak

I mean really creepy. And a little trippy too.
It was also a very entertaining chapter in a story that I have been a little hot and cold on. I've enjoyed what I have read thus far but I wasn't quite sure where Pak was going with all of this. Apparently where he was going was to tell a horror story with Superman in it. This is hard to do because Superman and horror don't necessarily mix, but given how it's more of a head game than Superman versus monster Pak is making it work.
The flashback sequence at the beginning set the tone for the issue. Clark can't trust his own senses and this is made worse by the conversation he has with the zombie-fied bodies of his parents. The awful things they said to him gave the scene more impact and really weirded me out, but in the way that a good horror story should.

"All That Burns"
Writer: Peter Tomasi
Penciller: Doug Mahnke
Inker: Jaime Mendoza, Norm Rapmund, Christian Alamy and Don Ho
Reviewed by: Michael Bailey
Overall this was a fun issue. While there was plenty of action Tomasi is still packing in the character with fun little asides and some great dialogue. Some of it, particularly that of Debutante and the shadowy character from the first page, could be seen as a little sexist on both sides of the aisle but I don't think that was the writer's intent. Debutante screaming that no one should get between a woman and her shopping money was a comedy beat, not an indictment on women in general. The diatribe in the beginning about how weak men are in comparison to women was a character moment not a treatise on relations between the sexes. At least that's how I saw them. I never asked Tomasi and I can't read minds from a distance so I am going to give the man the benefit of the doubt that he's trying to write an entertaining story and doesn't have a particular agenda.

Greg Berlanti: I hope you're going to hear about casting soon or we're not going to be able to make the pilot! I would say, tonally closer to Flash than Arrow. That's probably the best way to say it.
Question: Do you mean it'll be more romantic?
Berlanti: Well the nature of the character is a bit, and who we have in her life and who we're surrounding her with. Also, tonally, I thought of those kind of characters as [strongly] DC Universe and I'm sure Geoff [Johns] would agree. And they both died in Crisis of Infinite Earths! So they're similar.
Question: Is there crossover potential for Supergirl with Arrow or The Flash?
Berlanti: So much has to go right for us to be able to make a great show. Again, I think of myself as like if I were watching them, I would want to see that. But we have to get so many things right to make a good show and so much of it is luck, unfortunately.
The "Supergirl" TV series will air on CBS some time in 2015. The "Supergirl" pilot is penned by Ali Adler (No Ordinary Family) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow), both of whom will be executive producers alongside Sarah Schechter (of Berlanti Productions) and Warner Bros. TV.

Voice Cast and Filmmakers Announced for January 12 Event; Tickets are now Sold Out
Six members of the cast - including Matt Lanter, the voice of Aquaman - have been confirmed to attend the World Premiere of Justice League: Throne of Atlantis in Los Angeles on January 12, 2015. Presented by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and The Paley Center for Media, the event will include red carpet media interviews, the premiere screening of the film, and a post-screening panel discussion amongst cast and filmmakers.
The screening will commence at 7:00pm at The Paley Center for Media (465 North Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills). The event is now completely sold out.
Lanter will lead a lively post-screening panel discussion amongst fellow cast members Sam Witwer (Orm), Jason O'Mara (Batman), Jerry O'Connell (Superman), Christopher Gorham (Flash) and Sumalee Montano (Mera), and filmmakers including screenwriter Heath Corson, character designer Phil Bourassa and dialogue/casting director Andrea Romano. TV Guide Magazine Senior Writer Damian Holbrook will moderate the festivities.
In Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, Cyborg discovers an imminent threat in the depths of the oceans so powerful that it rallies together the newly formed Justice League. Meanwhile, wandering thousands of feet above the ocean floor is drifter Arthur Curry, a man with strange powers who may be the last chance to bridge the ancient Atlantean world with our own. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League must band together as they face off against warmongering Orm, an army of sea creatures, otherworldly weapons and perilous odds. In this all-new epic adventure from the DC Universe, mankind's only hope of escaping from the darkness lies with the guiding light of a man - Aquaman!
The celebrity laden cast features primetime television stars Matt Lanter (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, 90210) at Aquaman, Sam Witwer (Being Human, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as Orm, Jason O'Mara (Terra Nova, Vegas, Life on Mars) as Batman, Christopher Gorham (Covert Affairs) as Flash, Nathan Fillion (Castle) as Green Lantern, Shemar Moore (Criminal Minds) as Cyborg, Rosario Dawson (Sin City) as Wonder Woman, Jerry O'Connell (Crossing Jordan, Stand By Me) as Superman, Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) as Shazam, Sumalee Montano (Beware the Batman, Transformers Prime) as Mera, Sirena Irwin (Superman: Unbound) as Queen Atlanna, and Harry Lennix (Man of Steel, The Blacklist) as Manta.
Produced by Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, Justice League: Throne of Atlantis will be distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on January 27, 2015.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has also released three new images from the film featuring Cyborg & Wonder Woman, Batman & Superman, and Mera & Aquaman.
The latest rumor and speculation comes on the back of an image that was released online (via Imgur) which is supposedly a screen grab from the upcoming "Batman v Superman" Teaser Trailer... However, the image seems to indicate that "Dawn of Justice" is the second in a 2-part "Batman v Superman" series of films... with the first "Enter the Knight" set to be released this year, on October 23.
There was speculation that the long production time meant that Zack Snyder was filming "Batman v Superman" back-to-back with a "Justice League" movie... so some are claiming that the rumor was true, but that it was two "Batman v Superman" films being made back-to-back instead.
As for the shortened promotion time... most films don't have more than 6-8 months for promotions anyway... and a "Batman v Superman" film will generate plenty of buzz regardless whenever it is released.
I personally don't believe this at all... the URL on the bottom of the image links to the "Dawn of Justice" website, and there isn't one at a "Enter the Knight" URL. But I guess we'll know for sure when the first "Batman v Superman" teaser trailer is released (if not beforehand).
