The on screen DC TV universe that began over on The CW may be getting a lot more complicated with rumors juicier than a hot turkey hitting today.
Bleeding Cool reports that plans are in place for CBS to introduce the main cast of the CW's "The Flash" to Supergirl for a crossover episode that would be scheduled for next May during sweeps week.
Talk of such a possibility has been around for some time as the shows are handled by the same producers and production company, but being on different networks meant the decision was up to CBS who initially has wanted "Supergirl" to fly alone.
However, with the show's strong premiere ratings now falling, it's time to start finding ways to generate new interest. All this would depend upon CBS picking up the option for the 'back nine' and bringing the "Supergirl" season up to 22 episodes - something »

Aquaman is making his theatrical debut next year in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and teaming up with other DC heroes after that in Justice League Part One, but it’s in his 2018 solo movie that he’ll really get to shine. Directed by James Wan and written by David Leslie Johnson, few details have emerged about what to expect from the movie, but we may have an idea who the King of Atlantis will do battle with, and it’s someone literally close to home. The underwater hero’s conflict will reportedly be kept in the family, as JoBlo has heard that Aquaman, a.k.a. Arthur Curry, will fight his younger half-brother, Orm, better known as Ocean Master. The movie will draw primarily from their battle for the Atlantan throne that has been seen many times in the comics. With the Aquaman screenplay »
Smaller-scale television projects such as the latest Arrow spin-off Legends of Tomorrow allow DC to flesh out its characters and cater for die-hard fans and casual viewers, while in the cinema it faces a crushing battle against its rival Marvel
Comic-book characters are everywhere. Both DC and its rival Marvel have laid out their release schedules for the foreseeable future – a run of 20-odd new films such as Justice League Part One, Wonder Woman, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Guardians of the Galaxy Volume Two that will take us up to 2019 …
So far on the big screen, there has been one clear winner: Marvel and Disney teamed up to crush all before them with a Hulk-sized fist, leaving DC to reminisce over the success of Christopher Nolan’s celebrated Batman trilogy, and not much else.

Next year will be huge for fans of both Marvel and DC Comics, with each studio launching two huge movies apiece. Marvel's Captain America: Civil War (May 6, 2016) will start the studio's Phase Three initiative, while Warner Bros. kick starts their own DC Comics Extended Universe with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (March 25, 2016). At the heart of the Dceu is Ben Affleck's Batman, a character who will share the screen with Superman (Henry Cavill) for the first time ever. Variety recently caught up with Ben Affleck, who acknowledges that there is an immense amount of pressure for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to succeed.
"I think there is a ton of pressure on it. I mean I would be bulls-ting you to say there isn't. You'll see next year they are going to have a great year. They are now developing probably the single greatest under-exploited IP asset in the entertainment business, »
Well this sounds promising. Some might even say it is Super. Little by little, details are squeaking out regarding the highly anticipated The Justice League: Part 1. While the film isn’t expected to be released until 2017 comic book fans and moviegoers like have been thirsty for more information regarding DC’s answer to The Avengers. My Entertainment World has recently listed a few details regarding upcoming movies. Looks like we have a potential villain for The Justice League and if the description for the film's story proves accurate, it looks like the big bad is none other than Darkseid himself. The world's greatest heroes are assembled to form the Justice League, to combat a threat beyond each individual's capabilities. The story involves Darkseid planning the destruction of Earth by blasting it with a ray that’ll move Apokolips into the Earth’ »
Call it the Tsujihara Doctrine.
Soon after Kevin Tsujihara took over as Warner Bros. chairman-ceo, he made the decision to break with protocol from the previous regime — a change that would have a profound effect on the studio. At an early strategy session, senior execs recall him issuing a new edict: DC Entertainment is open for business across the lot.
Tsujihara made it clear that the vast archive of comic-book characters in the DC vault would no longer be under the tight control of Warner Bros.’ film division. WB’s television and interactive units would have new flexibility to develop projects derived from the properties, even if they were concurrently being eyed for movie projects.
He established the studio’s equivalent of the Justice League. Every two weeks, top execs including DC Entertainment’s Diane Nelson and Geoff Johns, Warner Bros. Pictures’ Sue Kroll and Greg Silverman and Warner Bros. »

In 2016 the two comic book giants cross swords like never before. But who - Marvel or DC - will claim the ultimate victory?
Throughout the decades, the battle for comic book supremacy has swung back and forth between Marvel and DC, the two publishing giants that have dominated the medium’s market since its Silver Age heyday back in the mid-50s. Whilst the perennial war of attrition between the big two has sometimes seen one company on the ropes (such as the time during 80s when Warner Bros. reportedly came close to selling DC to Marvel, or even in the 90s when an ailing Marvel declared bankruptcy), for the most part the two comic book behemoths have existed on a relatively equal footing.
However, the same cannot be said about the duo’s cinematic and television endeavours.
Whilst DC are certainly finding success on the smaller screen, »
In addition to being really into comics, I’m also really into history. I like to know where things came from and how they were made. This fact about myself has resulted in my reading of quite a few comics from the Golden and Silver Ages. Nearly all were reprints, but comics of those ages none the less. Although some of the comics then may not offer us the kinds of lessons in diversity and inclusion I’m normally advocating for, they actually do give us a valuable lesson in diversity that is lacking in mainstream comics today.
The norm for decades in comics was an anthology format. Marvel Mystery, Adventure, Action, Detective, Showcase, Journey Into Mystery, Police, Crime Does Not Pay, Eerie, Creepy, My Greatest Adventure, all of these and more would offer us up multiple stories featuring different characters in each. The first issue of Marvel Comics featured the Human Torch, »

We all know how unreliable casting websites tend to be, and that's why you probably shouldn't pay too much attention to the following plot synopsis from My Entertainment World. Of course, they've been right enough in the past to at least take note of this one, and if this is indeed the approach Warner Bros. are taking to Justice League Part One, it sounds pretty awesome. After all, it's hard to fault the choice of Darkseid as the movie's big bad as he makes more sense than Braniac. The world's greatest heroes are assembled to form the Justice League, to combat a threat beyond each individual's capabilities. The story involves Darkseid planning the destruction of Earth by blasting it with a ray that’ll move Apokolips into the Earth’s place. It's worth noting of course that this synopsis appears to be based on Will Beall's scrapped Justice League screenplay, »
Warner Bros and DC are starting to make big strides into their new Cinematic Universe and today brings word that they're on the hunt for another female hero to bring to the big screen, with potential to spin-off into a Birds of Prey movie. Come inside to check out the scoop!
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice releases in just a few months, Suicide Squad is in post-production for it's release, and this past weekend saw the official start of filming on the Wonder Woman film. It's safe to say that WB's plan for the Dceu is moving right along. With Justice League Part 1 set to begin filming next year for it's 2017 release, it's understandable that rumors about new cast/characters are finally hitting.

Although Warner Bros. announced their main slate of DC Extended Universe entries last October, the studio appears to be gearing up to introduce even more superheroes. Justice League Dark seems to finally be moving ahead, and it was reported two months back that Booster Gold and Blue Beetle may lead their own movie. Now there.s word that Black Canary may be brought to the big screen soon, and we could see her as early as 2017. Black Canary reportedly could make her Decu debut either in Justice League Part One or 2019.s Justice League Part Two. However, Latino-Review has also heard that, should the character and her actress "perform to expectation," she will also feature in a Birds of Prey movie based on the female-led superhero team. Like the team in the comics, this would pair Black Canary with notable female heroes from the DC universe, like Barbara Gordon (who »
According to Latino-Review, Warner Bros. are planning on bringing Black Canary to the big screen in one or both of the upcoming Justice League movies. While it's still early days, Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) and Alona Tal (Supernatural) are those currently being eyed for the role of the hero who has been played by Caity Lotz and Katie Cassidy in Arrow. The exciting thing here though is that the studio has big plans for the character following Justice League, with the plan apparently to include her in a Birds of Prey movie. If that incorporates characters like Harley Quinn and Batgirl, then it should be amazing, while it's hard not to wonder if this news means we're going to be getting a big screen Green Arrow in the near future too (sorry, Stephen Amell!).

Warner Bros & DC Comics
Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is still a little while away from release, but there’s already been feverish discussion online about the direction in which the upcoming two-part Justice League saga will drag the DC Extended Universe (Dceu).
The first film doesn’t land until late 2017, but with shooting prepped to start shortly after Batman v Superman hits screens, what better time to hunker down in all the news tidbits, plausible rumours and conclusions we can draw from what’s been revealed so far?
Who will be the villain? Which character will be the focus? How will peripheral League members tie into it? And what about other characters lined up to appear in the film? There’s plenty to be excited about but it’s also worth going in with realistic expectations, because after all, it would be so easy for an undertaking this »

Superman III is a strange creature. After two highly successful films that managed to bring a comic book hero to the big screen in such a way that they gained much mainstream respect and redefined what a big budget movie could be, you would think the third entry in the series would have followed suit.
Instead, we got Superman III. Widely panned by critics and fans alike, it decided to forego the natural choice of crafting another silver screen epic featuring the Man of Tomorrow battling iconic villains and instead focused largely on a computer programmer played by comedic legend Richard Pryor. The powers that be decided to scrap the existing script and write a new film based around Pryor after hearing him make a candid comment about wanting to be in a Superman movie.
However, there is an element of the film that resonated with many moviegoers: Bad Superman. »

It's official! Wonder Woman is now shooting. And the first photo has arrived. It shows Gal Gadot as Diana Prince in her Wonder Woman hood and headband. Patty Jenkins is directing this fourth installment in the DC Comics Extended Universe. She is best known for her hit 2003 drama Monster and her work on the AMC series The Killing.
Principle photography is taking place in England. The character of Wonder Woman is set to make her big screen debut in this March's superhero epic Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Arriving in theaters on June 23, 2017, Wonder Woman will mark the first time this iconic DC Comics character has ever headlined a feature film. She will also be seen in Justice League Part 1 in 2017 and Justice League Part 2 in 2019.
Justice League Unlimited was recently collected into a single Blu-Ray disc and, while I happen to own its on DVD – as well as literally everything else Bruce Timm and his menagerie created – it still stirred up a sense of unbreakable joy and nostalgia in me.
I use the term nostalgia in spite of the show itself being broadcast during my early to mid-twenties, mind you. I use it because we all know that nostalgia indicates that sentimental longing for a better time. And while we’re living in a veritable gilded age in terms of comics-to-tv live action adaptations, the animated realm is devoid of any direct counterpart to serious pulp storytelling. Sure Teen Titans Go! is on, and a handful of Marvel properties as well. But none of them hold a candle to Justice League. The absolute best episode of Avengers: Earth Mightiest Heroes – now over five years old »

Click to enlarge Mad Max: Fury Road may not exist if director George Miller had actually gotten his Justice League: Mortal movie off the ground. It was a project he began developing at Warner Bros. in the mid 2000s, but it ended up getting stuck in development mud during a writer's strike and never got the traction it needed to happen. On the one hand, it's a bummer because a Justice League movie from George Miller would be something to behold. On the other, it's a relief that Warner Bros. didn't just shove the movie forward with a weak script and a cheapened budget. Plus, had it been a big hit and started a new franchise, Miller may never gotten around to making Fury Road. The movie did progress far enough in development that it was fully cast. D.J. Cotrona as...

There’s been an absolute onslaught of rumours recently surrounding DC’s Justice League Dark movie, and when there’s this much news coming from different outlets, it usually means that the rumours are true. This time, it’s Joblo reporting that Warner Bros have a (very) shortlist of potential directors lined up for the project; all of whom are capable replacements for the previously-departed Guillermo Del Toro.
Reportedly in the mix are Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, who directed the Israeli crime thriller Big Bad Wolves (quoted as being Quentin Tarantino’s favourite movie of 2013), up against the choice of Fede Alvarez, he of the Evil Dead remake from the same year. Both choices have a morbid flair for the ghoulish and would be good fits for the script, which is reported to be a great work by Del Toro and “one of the main reasons” that »
