CBS’ Supergirl Series Will Focus On These Two Characters

SupergirlAnybody who’s been paying attention knows that superheroes have become big, big business, on both the movie screen and on TV. Both DC and Marvel just announced huge, multi-year plans for their respective cinematic universes. On the TV front, DC has been far more ambitious, at least this season, with The Flash joining Arrow on The CW, Constantine working his magic on NBC, and Gotham a hit on Fox. They’ve also got not one, but two projects in development with ties to their heaviest hitter, Superman. We gave you the early details about David Goyer’s Krypton series last week; now we’ve got some new information about Supergirl, which is being developed for CBS.

TVLine reports that Supergirl will focus on two main characters. The first is, well, Supergirl herself, Kara Zor-El. Like her square-jawed flying cousin, Kara was sent to Earth from Krypton, where she was — again like good old Kal-El — raised by a human couple who taught her to use her powers with responsibility and discretion, lest somebody realize she’s an alien and decide a dissection is in order. Living as “Kara Danvers,” the girl who will be Supergirl begins to embrace her heroic potential after she’s forced to use her powers openly during a disaster. The Supergirl producers are looking for a Caucasian actress between 22 and 26 to play the role.


Here’s When You Can Play The Next Star Wars: Battlefront Game

With J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII looming just beyond the horizon, Star Wars mania is ramping up all over the entertainment spectrum. One of the franchise’s most popular offshoots, the Star Wars: Battlefront video games, is finally coming back to fans for new generation systems, and here’s when you’ll be able to get your hands on the third console edition.


Jane Austen Gets Badass In This First Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Pic

Pride and prejudice and zombiesIt’s been in the process of being adapted for so damn long that it was starting to feel like literary horror mash up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was never actually going to materialize. I know there’s been news and casting and reports of all varieties, but still, it just felt kind of out there in a vague way. But now, today, there’s honest to god photographic evidence that this is a real movie that’s going to happen.

This first photo from the Jane Austen adaptations (maybe augmented Jane Austen adaptation is a more accurate description) comes from EW, and shows off the core cast of the film. You’ve get a look at a quintet composed of Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse).


Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor #4 Adds Much Needed Depth And Substance

Doctor WhoIt took a couple of issues to really find a groove, but Titan ComicsDoctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor has found a nice groove over the two installments of the continuing adventures of Matt Smith’s incarnation of the venerable Time Lord and his new companion, former library assistant Alice Obiefune. Each new book still functions very much like a standalone episode, but in issue #4, writer Al Ewing has struck a solid balance between that and the larger narrative arc that gives these tales a more substantial texture.

So the Doctor and Alice are twirling through space and time, future past Bowie-esque rock god Jones in tow, and their latest adventure lands them smack in the middle of an interstellar murder mystery. Well, sort of, things are never that clean and easy when the Doctor and his friends get involved, now are they? The trio winds up on a military research facility where some unknown force, forces, or person, has been targeting members of the team, leaving them in a coma like state and wiping their minds clean. Our heroes, of course, have to figure out what’s really going on, track suspects, and get into sticky situations, one involving the toilet.


This 12 Monkeys Trailer Brings Suspense And A Creepy Antagonist To The Apocalypse

When Syfy first announced that they were bringing a new version of Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys to the small screen, I assumed that I was just having a delusion while being kept inside the mental institution where Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt met. The new trailer below doesn’t excel at distancing itself from the film, but heaps on enough dramatic music, quick edits, and Zeljko Ivanek to at least be independently intense on first sight. Check it out.


First Look At Arnold Schwarzenegger In Terminator: Genisys Instills Faith Again

terminator genisysI’m pretty sure New Coke didn’t see the kind of backlash that Paramount’s upcoming quasi-reboot Terminator: Genisys has received in the past week. (Oh, okay, since it added that terrible subtitle.) Screenwriters Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier have taken the core franchise story and taken it in a few completely different directions, causing some fans to claim, “I won’t be back,” in their best Arnold Schwarzenegger accent. But now we’ve got our very first look at the aging Schwarzenegger in his trademark leather jacket, holding a gun, and it’s a little easier to forget about all the madness. (Light SPOILERS ahead for those who wish to remain clueless.)
