The site reports that The CW’s version of Carter Hall is described as “charismatic and wise beyond his years, Hawkman is a natural-born leader with an abundance of charm and confidence—well, that’s because he’s 5,000 years old. Much like the comic book iteration, Carter retains his memories of his past lives each time he is reborn, though his lover (aka Hawkgirl) is born anew. In other words, Kendra Saunders will have no idea who he is at first.”

Earlier this year, The CW showed off an epic teaser trailer for DC's Legends of Tomorrow. But, as it turns out, none of that footage is going to be included in the series itself. One of the most interesting items on display was the return of Sara Lance as The White Canary. While it seemed that she would be getting her origin story told in DC's Legends of Tomorrow, producer Marc Guggenheim confirms that her backstory will be set up in Arrow Season 4.
Caity Lotz's Black Canary was killed off in Arrow Season 3, and her return has been a hot topic of conversation amongst fans. The trailer confirmed that Sara is being brought back from the dead through the Lazarus Pit. While it seemed that her superhero origin would be told in full as part of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, fans will learn how Lance became White Canary in »
For the last few years we’ve had a steady flow of films being remade, rebooted, squealed etc. It’s a trend that doesn’t appear to going anywhere any time soon. In fact it even seems to have invaded the world of television shows. Work on a new series of both Twin Peaks and The X-Files is under way, and within the next few months we’ll have a reboot of Heroes in Heroes Reborn.
The latest series announced to be brought back to the small screen will be Prison Break. The first season followed genius Michael Scofield, played by Wentworth Miller, as he intentionally got himself sent to prison so that he could break out his brother Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) who was on death row. Subsequent seasons followed the pair as they were on the run from the law, had to escape a prison from Panama, and then »

Some new photos are out from "Silver Linings Playbook" and "American Hustle" director David O. Russell's new Jennifer Lawrence-led film "Joy" have gone online.

Appearing at Comic Con for "The Flash," actors Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell have confirmed reports from last month that Fox is planning an event series revival of its thriller series "Prison Break" on which they both starred.
Miller says despite his character's death in the finale, it's happening: "That's in the offing, yeah. Conversations are happening... assuming Michael is still alive." Purcell adds: "I mean, Sara was dead... The [concept] that I've heard is completely brilliant, so people will be fine." [Source: TV Line]

The sixth Resident Evil film is finally set to start shooting shortly, with Milla Jovovich taking on the role of Alice for the last time. Paul W S Anderson is directing again, and the movie is going by the name of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. Well, The Final Chapter until the reboot, at least.
Production finally gets underway on the movie this August, with the plan being to release the film on 2016. Originally, the plan was to shoot last year, but Anderson and Jovovich have been celebrating the birth of their second child. And many congratulations to them.
Thus far, we know that Wentworth Miller is returning, but we have no further casting news as of yet.
Anyway, Jovovich has shared the first behind the scenes picture from Resident Evil: The Final Chapter »
The criminally-inclined Snart family – which already consists of supervillains Captain Cold and Golden Glider – is about to get even bigger when The Flash returns for its second season. According to THR, legendary action movie actor Michael Ironside has joined the series as Lewis Snart, the abusive father of Leonard (Wentworth Miller) and Lisa (Peyton List).
Not much is known about Lewis Snart in the comics, other than he was so abusive to his son that it caused poor Leonard to spend more time with his grandfather, who ran an ice cream truck (which certainly explains his love of subzero temperatures and puns that would make Arnold Schwarzenegger jealous).

From comic-book adaptations to sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Here are the new geek-skewed shows coming to Us TV in 2016...
The world of TV has never been so crowded and, at the same time, geeks have never had it so good. As saturated as the big screen is with superhero films and sprawling shared universes, that mentality has well and truly bled onto the small screen too.
So there’s a lot of comic-book adaptations coming up in 2016 from Marvel, DC and others, but genre TV is represented across the board with science-fiction, fantasy and horror represented at pretty much every network and cable channel in the Us.
Here's some of the geek TV that will be making its way to us from the Us next year.

After a long delay, it looks like the eagerly-awaited Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is finally ready to get off the ground. Franchise star Milla Jovovich confirms that production prep on the 6th installment of the long-standing series will begin this week in South Africa. She doesn't give an exact start date for shooting to take place, but expect it to be soon. The actress, who has appeared in every single Resident Evil movie, will reprise her role as Alice. And she has shared an instagram photo of her first face cast as effects work gets underway.
It was last August that Milla Jovovich and her husband and director Paul W.S. Anderson announced that Resident Evil: The Final Chapter was getting delayed. The pair were expecting their second child together, and due to the extensive stunt regime that Milla has to undertake as Alice, they thought it would be better »
Recently released from prison, he returns to Central City with a plan that will endanger both of his children. He first appears in the new season's third episode "Family of Rogues" which airs October 20th.
Meanwhile The CW has released a new trailer for the upcoming "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" which blends comic elements with pre-existing footage and back stories from "Arrow" and "The Flash".

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow‘s stint in TVLine’s Comic-Con interview suite at the Hard Rock Hotel kicked off with a little superhero roll call.
Behind him, Dominic Purcell (Prison Break) described his character Heat Wave as “a dumber version of The Joker,” which made castmates Caity Lotz (Arrow), Brandon Routh (Arrow), Wentworth Miller (Prison Break) and Ciara Renee (Broadway’s Pippin) chuckle.

Having released a giddily fun trailer in May, it feels like the misfit team from DC’s Legends of Tomorrow should be closer to wreaking havoc all over The CW, but unfortunately the new Arrow and The Flash spinoff doesn’t debut its 16-episode run until midseason. To tide us over, we sat down with showrunner Phil Klemmer and stars Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory/Heat Wave), and Ciara Renée (Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl) at Comic-Con, and they spilled some tantalizing details about the new series. Here’s what we learned about the consequences of time travel, how assembling a good superhero team is like casting The Real World, and why it’s necessary that Vancouver look like Ancient Egypt.

Executive Producers Andrew Kreisberg, Phil Klemmer, Marc Guggenheim and Greg Berlanti were joined by stars Ciara Renee, Victor Garber, Brandon Routh, Wentworth Miller, Caity Lotz, and Dominic Purcell to give fans an introduction to the upcoming show, one that will include time travel, resurrection, and reincarnation.
