The four-day Variety Studio wrapped Monday, after doing more than 40 video interviews with stars like Sandra Bullock, Michael Caine, Bryan Cranston, Elle Fanning and Eddie Redmayne. Also participating were directors like Stephen Frears and Alfonso Cuaron. The latter was beaming over the successful Toronto Festival launch of “Desierto,” directed by his son Jonas Cuaron. “He’s a good director,” said the proud papa. “He can support me and now I can retire!” (Don’t worry: the success will happen but the retirement won’t.)
Double standard in the paparazzi era: Several actors arrived in hipster grunge but all the actresses were perfectly decked out. And everyone looked good.
The studio was created in the men’s department of the swanky Holt Renfrew department store. Like much of the Toronto Fest, it’s slightly surreal but ultimately makes sense.

It runs in the family: she's faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound just like her famous Kryptionian cousin. But as both a superheroine and as a young woman still coming into her own, "Supergirl" has a lot to learn about the world.
For the new CBS series debuting in the fall, actress Melissa Benoist ("Glee," "Whiplash") takes on the iconic mantle of the Ingenue of Steel and her alter ego Kara Danvers, and during her first trip to Comic-Con International in San Diego she revealed all sorts of Super-details, from learning to throw a punch during her super-workout to dancing through the sky to a particularly constraining portion of that caped costume.

A few days ago, following an interview at San Diego Comic-Con, it was widely rumored that Laura Vandervoort, who portrayed Kara Zor-El/Supergirl on Smallville for five years, was in talks to cameo on CBS' upcoming superhero drama Supergirl, which stars Melissa Benoist (Whiplash) in the titular role. However, it seems as though those reports may have been a tad premature as Vandervoort sent out a tweet the following day to debunk the rumor herself: Just wanted to clarify I'm not in "talks" with the #Supergirl series to be a part of it. I'd love to but no official discussions. Thanks xo — Laura Vandervoort (@Vandiekins22) July 10, 2015 Based on producer Greg Berlanti's history of bringing back former superhero actors, primary examples being John Wesley Shipp on The Flash and Helen Slater & Dean Cain on Supergirl, this doesn't necessarily mean we won't eventually see Vandervoort make an appearance on the show, »

Based on the DC Comics character, the drama tells the story of Kara Zor-El, who was born on the planet Krypton, but escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin Superman. But now, at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. »
