Powerless Cast Reveals DC Superhero Cameos — Who's Dropping In?

21 hours ago | | See recent news »

What’s the biggest inconvenience about living in a world full of superheroes? Why, the surge in Uber prices when they decide to fight evil in the middle of rush hour, of course.

That’s the type of everyday annoyance facing the gang from Powerless, DC Comics’ first-ever comedy series, coming to NBC in 2017. The show’s stars — Danny Pudi, Ron Funches, Alan Tudyk and Vanessa Hudgens — recently stopped by TVLine’s Comic-Con suite (presented by Zte), where they shamelessly name-dropped DC characters we’ll be »

28 July 2016 1:53 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Matt Letscher will be spending a lot of time in that Reverse-Flash suit this fall, having joined The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow as a series regular while also playing a role in The Flash‘s Flashpoint arc.

The good news on that front is that he now has a supersuit to call his own, having previously “shared” one with The Flash‘s Tom Cavanagh.

“I did get my own suit this year, so I hope they put it to good use,” Letscher tells TVLine. The original Reverse-Flash suit “was built for Tom, who is probably two inches shorter than me and a lot skinnier, »

While Warner Bros. was busy debuting their big screen superheroes, their small screen counterparts were also making a splash at San Diego Comic-Con.

Expect To See The Legion Of Doom On DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow Season 2

23 July 2016 6:51 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Saturday tends to be the day San Diego Comic-Con seems to bear the most fruit when it comes to news, and several tidbits that will excite comic book fans happen to pertain to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. It’s not a major leap of the imagination that a show focusing on a superhero team would see the arrival of not only another superhero team, but a club comprised of villains, but it’s still exciting to hear about nonetheless.

Let’s discuss villains first because, let’s be honest, news involving the bad guys is always nice to hear. It’s been confirmed that the Legion of Doom will factor into the show’s second season, but don’t expect to see a traditional lineup comprised of the likes of Lex Luthor, Brainiac, Scarecrow, Solomon Grundy and others.

Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim explained how they arrived at the decision »

23 July 2016 5:44 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The Flash” is going to look very different when it returns, as the first trailer for Season 3 teases an alternate universe that one villain decides to call Flashpoint. The trailer was unveiled at the CW superhero drama’s panel at the San Diego Comic-Con Saturday. Season 3, according to the trailer, will find an almost-idyllic Central City for Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), which resulted from his superhero alterego The Flash’s decision in the Season 2 finale to go back in time and save his mother from being murdered by his greatest foe, the Reverse Flash (Matt Letscher).

23 July 2016 5:23 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

There was big news out of San Diego Comic Con today with regard to DC's Legends of Tomorrow!!

Not only will more members of the Justice Society of America be introduced, but Matt Letscher aka the Reverse-Flash will be joining the show as a series regular!!

Wentworth Miller and John Barrowman are both expected to be integral, recurring characters to the second season, as well.

Another recurring character? Neal McDonough, none other than Arrow's Damien Dahrk.

We've seen Dahrk in the past on Legends, but never the present.

What the heck is going on, you ask? Good question.

This will become the first-ever Legion of Doom on television.

"For season two of Legends, we decided that the perfect antagonist for TV's first-ever team of Super Heroes would be TV's first-ever team of Super-Villains, recruited from the ranks of Arrow and The Flash's deadliest adversaries," Legends boss Marc Guggenheim said. »

Examining Hollywood remakes: The Mask of Zorro

4 April 2016 4:38 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

It’s time to talk about remakes again. In this installment of our series, we’re going to be looking at a revamped version of one of the most legendary fictional heroes ever. This week, Cinelinx looks at The Mask of Zorro (1998). 

 The Zorro character was introduced in the 1919 serialized story, “The Curse of Capistrano”, written by Johnston McCulley, and was published in All-Stories Weekly, the same magazine that first published Edgar Rice Burroughs’ “Tarzan of the Apes” and “John Carter: Warlord of Mars”. Zorro was partly the inspiration for Batman. (Parenthetically, in DC comics, Bruce Wayne and his parents were coming out of a theater after seeing a film version of Zorro when his parents were killed.)

The story has been adapted several times. The first time was a silent film version in 1920, starring the cinema’s first-ever action star Douglas Fairbanks as the title character. However, we »

‘The Flash’ Boss on Shocking Zoom Reveal: ‘He Played Them All’

23 February 2016 6:02 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “The Flash” Season 2, Episode 15, titled “King Shark.”

Fans have been speculating about the identity of “The Flash’s” villainous Zoom since Season 2 began, but the truth proved to be even more shocking than we could’ve predicted: the man we’ve come to know as Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears) — beloved by comic book fans as the first iteration of The Flash in the Golden Age of comics — was revealed to be Zoom, aka Hunter Zolomon… Seconds after dumping the body of the man who appeared to be Jay Garrick on the ground back on Earth-2. But how? For that reveal, we’ll sadly have to wait until after “The Flash” returns from its mini-hiatus on March 22.

Our suspicions were raised after Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) attempted to track down Jay’s Earth-1 counterpart in the Jan. 26 episode “The Reverse-Flash Returns” (a »
