What's Your Favorite TV Show That's Based on a Comic Book?

16 December 2016 8:30 AM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Much like the movie industry, there's no shortage of comic book adaptations on television these days. There are five live-action DC Comics shows on The CW alone -- iZombie, Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow.  And that's just the tip of the iceberg.Fox has Lucifer and Gotham and ABC has Marvel's Agents of Shield. Speaking of the Marvel Universe, Netflix has several of their own shows -- Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. On AMC, we have Preacher and the zombie apocalypse of The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead. Syfy has Wynonna Earp and Cinemax has Outcast. But, comic books coming alive on our television screens is nothing new. In the past, we've had Super Friends, The Tick, Batman, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, and many, many more. »

Mr. Mxyzptlk to appear on Supergirl in 2017

2 December 2016 2:06 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Superman himself may not have the chance to visit National City very often on Supergirl, but that doesn’t mean his villains are restricted to terrorizing Metropolis. The Girl of Steel has already faced off with a number of her cousin’s foes, including Metallo, Livewire, Silver Banshee, Parasite, Toyman, and Cyborg Superman. Now, we can add one of Superman’s oldest enemies to that list: the fifth-dimensional imp known as Mr. Mxyzptlk.

There are no character details or casting updates at this time, but according to ComicBook.com Mxyzptlk will appear in two episodes sometime in 2017, when Supergirl returns from its mid-season break.

For those unfamiliar with the hard-to-pronounce villain, he’s been terrorizing Superman since 1944 and is usually portrayed as a small purple-hatted trickster who resorts to magic. The only way to defeat him used to be to trick him into saying his name backward, which would banish »

Superman: no plans yet for a Tyler Hoechlin TV show

17 October 2016 8:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mike Cecchini Oct 19, 2016

Will we get a Superman TV series after his appearances on Supergirl? Will he at least return this season?

If you tuned in for the first two episodes of Supergirl season 2, The Adventures Of Supergirl and Last Children Of Krypton there's a better than average chance that you enjoyed Tyler Hoechlin as Superman. The show delivered exactly what many fans feel has been missing from recent big screen Superman outings (and several small screen ones, too). While Hoechlin's Superman costume is of a more modern variety, the feel and performance were very much classic Kal-El.

Supergirl Season 2 Review

4 October 2016 9:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.

For fans of The CW’s “Arrowverse,” the fact that Supergirl debuted on CBS in fall 2015 must have seemed like an odd choice. After all, The CW already had two hit shows based on DC Comics in Arrow and The Flash, with a third on the way in the form Legends of Tomorrow. Still, fans turned out to check out this more feminist approach to the male-dominated superhero genre, and the reaction was decidedly mixed throughout season 1.

Sure, star Melissa Benoist – who, like The Flash star Grant Gustin, was best known for a role on Fox’s Glee – emerged as a bright new star, but some were uncertain about the long-term prospects of the series. However, once it was announced that Supergirl would be transitioned on to The CW schedule alongside the other superhero shows co-created by Greg Berlanti, everything just clicked. Supergirl was finally home. »

Crime Traveller: celebrating an underappreciated 90s sci-fi

20 September 2016 4:04 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alastair Stewart Nov 21, 2016

Anthony Horowitz's Crime Traveller deserves to be better remembered in the history of British sci-fi...

The 1990s are Doctor Who's lost decade. Although the eponymous Timelord found a brief home with Paul McGann's American pilot in 1996, the revival was never picked up. So began an even longer winter on the long road to 2005's regeneration under Russell T. Davies with Christopher Eccleston. The rest, as they say, is history.

"Supergirl" Star Tyler Hoechlin Says His Superman Won't Be "Dark and Brooding"

3 September 2016 2:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Some fans are worried Tyler Hoechlin's Superman will overshadow Melissa Benoist's Supergirl when the show premieres on The CW this fall but at least we know he's got good sense of who the Man of Steel is.

Depending on what version of a character they were first introduced to, fans can have differing opinions on how they should be characterized in other media. But when it comes to characters like Superman and Batman, there's a fairly widely-held opinion that Superman is the hopeful hero who inspires others while Batman works in the shadows and has a very strict code.

Considering Zack Snyder's DC universe has altered both characters a bit from that generally held belief, it's sparked many a discussion. Famous Batman: The Animated SeriesBatman voice actor Kevin Conroy recently went on record to say Batman shouldn't kill people, for instance. Now, our newest Superman, Hoechlin, has weighed in on the Man of Steel. And by that I mean the character's nickname, not the movie, although...

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly the actor, who had his new Superman look revealed not too long ago, said:

“It’s Superman as I think he was intended to be,” Hoechlin says of his version of the Supes, “which is just an incredible symbol of hope to kids that they can do anything, that they can be good people, and that good people can triumph over evil. You don’t have to be dark and brooding and always in this state of masculine toughness. He sits in that very hopeful and optimistic place that Kara tends to be in.”

It's not hard to see where he's pulling those other characteristics from. If you follow me you know I much prefer a lighter, and more optimistic depiction of the character and hope the Warner Bros. universe course corrects when they resurrect Superman for Justice League. But regardless, a dark and brooding Superman would feel incredibly out of place on the more upbeat Supergirl.

Going back to first introductions, the actor told EW his first experience with Clark/Superman was from the '90s television series "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman." That Superman, Dean Cain, plays a different role on The CW's Supergirl along with original Supergirl, Helen Slater. The second season of the show starts Monday, October 10th and EW debuted a new shot from the two-part opener featuring Hoechlin. »

Supergirl’s Season 2 Premiere Lands A Title Sure To Be Familiar To Superman Fans

4 July 2016 4:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Supergirl arrives on The CW this Fall after making the leap from CBS, and star David Harewood took to Instagram this weekend to reveal the premiere’s title. While it would be nice if it revealed the mystery surrounding who – or what – landed on Earth in that crashed Krytonian vessel, it instead pays homage to the cousin of Kara Danvers.

Titled “The Adventures of Supergirl,” it clearly references both The Adventures of Superman radio and television shows from the 40s/50s and Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman from the 90s. It’s also the title of the Girl of Steel’s digital comic book series, though that’s more than likely little more than a coincidence.

Regardless of why it was chosen, this is a very cool choice for the title which nicely sets the stage for a new era of adventures featuring Supergirl. It’s thought »

Supergirl's Season 2 Premiere Gets An Awesome Title; David Harewood Will Return As Martian Manhunter

2 July 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

One of the downsides of Supergirl's move to The CW is budget cuts, and as a result, we still don't know which supporting characters will be returning this Fall. One who many fans suspected might be on the chopping block is David Harewood's Martian Manhunter, especially as the CGI used to bring him to life is without a doubt a little on the pricey side. Thankfully, we know now he's definitely coming back.  That was confirmed today when he shared the first page of the script for the season two premiere, an episode which will be titled "The Adventures of Supergirl." That's the same name as the Girl of Steel's digital comic book series and also bears a resemblance to both The Adventures of Superman radio and television shows from the 40s/50s and Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman from the 90s. Alas, a title »

‘Supergirl’ Casting Superman for Season 2

6 June 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Superman is officially coming to “Supergirl” in Season 2, with casting currently underway for the role of Clark Kent/Kal-El, the cousin of titular heroine Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist).

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg released a statement on behalf of the show’s producing team, which includes EPs Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler. “Greg, Ali and I are beyond thrilled to welcome Clark Kent and his slightly-more-famous alter ego to the world of ‘Supergirl,'” Kreisberg said. “Superman will be appearing in the first two episodes of the new season and we cannot wait to see who next dons the red cape!”

The iconic DC Comics hero was often mentioned in Season 1 of “Supergirl,” but was only ever shown from afar or backlit to obscure his face, with the show’s producers frequently stating their desire to establish Kara as a hero in her own right without relying on her more famous cousin. »

What Former Superman Dean Cain Thought Of Batman V Superman

31 March 2016 2:06 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Although it seems like we’re inundated with superhero stories in Hollywood these days, there are only a handful of people who can claim that they’ve worn the Superman suit in a piece of entertainment. Henry Cavill’s currently rocking the blue and red pajamas for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and one former Superman has weighed in with a (mostly) positive review.   This story will contain spoilers for Batman v Superman. You have been warned! For five years, starting in 1993, Dean Cain played Clark Kent and his costumed alter ego in the television program Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. With Dawn of Justice in theaters, THR caught up with Cain and asked him his thoughts on the latest Man of Steel. While Cain joked that his son hated the movie (because they dared to kill Superman off in the end), »

The Superman Films That Were Never Made

20 March 2016 6:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at Superman movies that were planned but never shot…

When the Christopher Reeve fronted Superman films came to a juddering halt in 1987 it would be almost twenty years before Clark Kent made another appearance on the big screen.

To be fair, between Superman IV: The Quest For Peace and 2006’s under appreciated Superman Returns, Superman was rarely off the small screen, featuring in Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman from 1993 to 1997 and in Smallville from 2001-2010 (proving that Gotham wasn’t the first attempt to show the origins of a DC superhero on TV). However, its near ubiquity on television didn’t stop several attempts to return it to the big screen.

Producer Jon Peters (who had produced Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman film) spent the mid nineties attempting to bring Superman back. Originally titled Superman Reborn, Kevin Smith (such a comic book fan »
