May 9, 2016: Syfy Officially Gives "Krypton" Pilot the Green LightPrint

Krypton Syfy has today announced that it has greenlit a pilot for the "Krypton" TV series.

    "Krypton is one of the most iconic stories in the comic book universe," said Bill McGoldrick, Executive Vice President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. "In the talented hands of David S. Goyer and the DC Entertainment/Warner Horizon Television team, this exciting Syfy project will take viewers back to Superman's home to show how the timeless legend began."

    From Warner Horizon Television and DC Comics, Krypton takes place years before the Superman legend we know, when the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This drama, which is in development, follows the Man of Steel's grandfather as he brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest Super Hero ever known.

The pilot will be produced by Warner Horizon Television. The pilot is written by David Goyer (Man of Steel) with Ian Goldberg (Once Upon A Time, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles). Goyer will executive produce through his company Phantom Four with Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow), who will serve as showrunner. Colm McCarthy (Peaky Blinders) is set to direct the pilot.

"Doomsday Scenario"

Writer: Brian Buccellato

Inker: Mike S. Miller
Cover: David Yardin

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

    Story-wise, the execution is better than expected. The sequences connect well, and by issue's end, it's hard to say that it wasn't a rewarding read for anyone who's been enjoying Injustice thus far. However, the fight, and the treachery that enters if, were so light and wasted, it's hard to come away with more than a shrug by story's end. A match between these three power houses could have been quite dynamic and very visually appealing, but Injustice makes the same error too many comics do when it comes to these situations. Rather than let the battle tell the story, Buccellato splits between a less than mean fight, and a needless transition. Readers who've been with the book this long know that Lex will get away with his machinations. What they don't know is how a full-on match between Bizarro, Doomsday, and Regime Superman will play out, after being offered the scenario. Four more to go. Stay the course, good people, stay the course.

    Movement. Actual storytelling. Pacing, and what is more, the desire to see the resolution of what's occurred this issue. Injustice, while lacking in most ways, makes good use of the serial format and returns to that form, finally, with this issue. Luthor, also, returns to form in this issue, as the despicable villain he's most recognizable. In sending Bizarro to the Fortress, he's signed his death warrant, for surely Doomsday or Regime, inadvertently, will kill him. A three-way match-up between Regime, Bizarro, and Doomsday is intriguing, and not a brawl to missed, if you're a proponent of such things. The only drawback to the coming fight is that the outcome is clear. If the cover of the issue doesn't give it away, then any knowledge of the video game Injustice is based on does. Occasionally, this series surpasses the morass it willingly sloughs through, and one will just have to wait to see such an occasion is upon us once more.

    After the depressing ending to Part 4, it was nice to see Superman and Wonder Woman happy and even Batman smiling was in stark contrast to their predicament. The Super Friends gag made me smile. The fight with The Ten was not a welcome one, I found it unnecessary in every way even with Superman's intervention and some fantastic art. It did zero for the story especially considering, literally minutes prior, they had battled Ulysses. There was plenty of ways to show the USA v China relations other than a throw down but I know that also would have made for a pretty boring comic action-wise.

May 6, 2016: Ben Affleck Joins "Justice League" as Executive ProducerPrint

Ben Affleck As well as starring as Batman in the upcoming "Justice League" movies, Deadline.com reports that Ben Affleck has now added Executive Producer to his resume.

    In that role, he will work with director Zack Snyder and screenwriter Chris Terrio behind the scenes to make the film the best it can be. It seems like a smart move, given that Affleck is already on the premises to reprise his Batman/Bruce Wayne character, and because he's as strong a storytelling presence as Warner Bros has on its lot. He showed that with his writing-directing efforts Gone Baby Gone, The Town and Argo, the latter of which won the Best Picture Oscar for Warner Bros and was scripted by Terrio, who also won an Academy Award for the film.

Meanwhile, "Justice League" stars Ray Fisher (Cyborg) and Ezra Miller (The Flash), posted a video from the set supporting that native youth at the Standing Rock Reservation and how they oppose the Dakota access pipeline. They also mention how you can go to RezpectOurWater.com and to sign the petition there, which Jason Momoa (Aquaman) also supported on Instagram.

May 5, 2016: Budget Concerns Stall "Supergirl" RenewalPrint

Supergirl In early March, CBS Network CEO Les Moonves told the Deutsche Bank Media, Internet & Telecom Conference that the TV network planned on renewing "Supergirl" for a second season, but no official announcement has been forthcoming... and there's a reason for that. It seems the show is in danger of being cancelled due to budget constraints.

    The network would like the show to come back, sources close to the series say, but there's a problem. The roughly $3 million per-episode price tag CBS pays to broadcast "Supergirl" - one of the highest license fees ever for a freshman show - isn't quite justified by the ratings. Thirteen million total viewers tuned in to the heavily-promoted premiere back in October, but about half the audience bailed over the season, according to Nielsen.

    That has set the stage for a last-minute stare-down between Moonves and Warner Bros. TV chief Peter Roth. CBS will announce its fall schedule in two weeks at the upfront presentations in New York, so the clock is ticking to hammer out a deal.

There are rumors circulating that CBS could do a deal to sell the show to The CW, where it would join fellow DC Comics shows such as "The Flash" and "Arrow", but that appears to just be internet speculation at this point in time.

Will Supergirl fly for a second season? Stay tuned...
