To date, young Suzanne (played by Sadie Sink) can only suspect that her mother is somehow still alive, despite what grownup after grownup has told her. (Helping fuel the lass’ theory is the fact that the wedding ring belonging to her “dead” mom, »
Suicide Squad is scheduled for release on August 5, 2016.
What we've seen so far
The movie has attracted a lot of attention as images of the Suicide Squad's members in costume began to roll out.
Leto showed off his new muscles, which everyone seemed to be fine with.
What fans have been less keen on is the photo of his tattooed and be-grilled Joker.
Despite suggestions that this was a concept that wouldn't show up in the film itself, shots from the set have dashed these hopes to pieces. »
DC doesn't have the greatest track record with their cinematic endeavors, but when it comes to television, they've had some amazing hits. However, outside of animation, they didn't really branch out to many of their second tier heroes until Smallville hit the air. We were then introduced to not only the young Clark Kent, but eventually Green Arrow, Cyborg, Aquaman, Impulse and many other heroes before its ten year run ended. A year and a half later, producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg brought us Arrow, starring Steven Amell as Oliver Queen in a darker, grittier take on the hero (which has borrowed more than a little from the Batman comics), who has returned home to find that his city has been run down by corrupt politicians and a seedy criminal element. Taking on the guise of Arrow, he sets out on his own to take his city back, only »
The season finale of CWs the Flash has set up the introduction of the DC multiverse; a plot element that has been confirmed by series star Grant Gustin. We’ll see “Earth One and Earth Two in the near future.” Does this open up the possibility of the DC TV universe to connect to the film continuity?
CW’s super hero series the Flash has wrapped up its excellent freshman season, with a very busy finale that wrapped up the first year story arcs and establishes a convoluted new time stream where the architect who set the shows major events in motion—the Reverse Flash—never existed, and yet the Flash (Gustin) still does; despite the fact that it was the actions of Reverse Flash (Tom Cavanagh) that gave him his powers. (Hopefully they’ll explain how that works in season two) The show ended on an epic cliffhanger where »

There were three losers and only one winner on The Voice‘s Season 8 finale — that is, if you chose to look at the Starbucks-sponsored plastic cup as half full.
If, however, like Blake, your glass had even a splash of moonshine left in it, maybe there were no losers at all.
The Supergirl upfront has garnered strong reactions online, not all of it positive. Here's a response to its critics...
It's fair to say the Supergirl trailer (actually an "upfront" – a précis of the entire pilot designed to sell the show internally and to advertisers) has attracted a lot of praise. It's also attracted a lot of criticism. But how valid are those criticisms? I'll say now that none of us has any idea whether this show will actually be good or not – I think it will, based on what I've seen – but I don't know. What I do know is that some of the things people are saying about it don't seem fair.
Criticism of the trailer's rom-com influences, perceived cheesiness, comparisons to a certain Saturday Night Live sketch, and complaints that its version of Kara Zor-El isn't (we'll come back to this) a "strong female character" are all problematic, »
Wrapping up its most watched season in seven years, The CW Network presented its 2015-16 broadcast schedule today to advertisers, affiliates and national media at New York City Center in New York City. The indie-pop band Of Monsters and Men kicked off the presentation with a live performance of their latest single "Crystals," and their international hit song "Little Talks." Here's what CW's Mark Pedowitz had to say in a statement.
"This has been a terrific season for The CW, and is a result of a strategy we set in motion a few years ago to broaden out and grow our audience. We had our most watched season, and our highest-rated season among men, in seven years. We launched The CW's most watched series ever with The Flash, and with The Flash and Jane the Virgin, we received more critical acclaim than ever before. The CW is heading into »
Supergirl is officially taking flight! The superhero series, which had already received a series commitment from CBS, has now been handed an official series order from the network. Unlike The WB/CW’s Smallville, which began with a teenage Clark Kent, Supergirl will follow Kara in her mid-twenties. At 24 years old, Kara has hidden the powers that she possesses throughout her time on Earth, but she has finally chosen to embrace her superhuman abilities and “be the hero she was meant to be.” Supergirl stars Glee‘s Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El/Supergirl, Mehcad Brooks (True Blood) as James Olsen, Calista Flockhart (Ally McBeal) as Cat Grant, David Harewood (Selfie, Homeland) as Hank Hanshaw, Chyler Leigh (Grey’s Anatomy, Taxi Brooklyn) as Alex Danvers, and Laura Benanti (Nashville) as Alura Zor-El. Additionally, Lois & Clark‘s Dean Cain and Helen Slater from the original 1984 Supergirl movie will be appearing on the show in mysterious guest-starring roles. »

Hugh Jackman is set to don the adamantium claws one last time for 20th Century Fox’s upcoming third Wolverine movie, with James Mangold in the director’s chair, and now TheWrap has revealed who’ll be penning the beloved mutant’s final ride: Blade Runner 2 scribe Michael Green.
Mangold will work with Green to ensure that his new take adheres closely to the director’s own vision for the action-packed pic. The scribe has written for Smallville, Heroes, Kings and The River over on the television side of things, but he’s perhaps best known for writing the (rather terrible) Green Lantern. Still, Green has lined up some pretty stellar gigs since then, including a re-write on Ridley Scott’s Prometheus 2 and a script for Denis Villeneuve’s hotly anticipated Blade Runner 2 (co-written with Hampton Fancher), which may star Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling. He’s also attached »

A prolific commercials director and occasional music video helmer (remember Morrissey's 'Tomorrow'?), 2004's Dawn of the Dead remake launched Zack Snyder onto the blockbuster A-list and since then he's worked on hotly-anticipated geek properties such as Watchmen and Superman.
The film critic community may not be too kind to Snyder, but his films frequently deliver when it comes to box office and that's partly down to how well his work gets sold. All those years making short-form promos served him well, because the trailers for Snyder's films are often mini works of art in and of themselves.
With Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on the horizon, Digital Spy looks back at Snyder's career in seven memorable trailers.
Dawn of the Dead (2004)
Fans were non-too-pleased about this remake of George A Romero's zombie classic, but with his directorial debut Snyder delivered a sturdy remake that's perhaps his best overall film to date. »
Daredevil moonlighting as Batman? For some actors, one comic book character isn’t enough, nor is one comic publisher. Some actors have jumped the fence between Marvel and DC, playing characters from both companies.
Marvel and DC may have a rivalry going, but that doesn’t stop them from hiring actors who’ve previously worked for the competition. Below is a list of nine actors who’ve portrayed characters from both comic book publishers.
For Marvel: His first foray into the super hero realm was as Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity (2004). Later, he joined Hugh ‘Wolverine’ Jackman as part of the X-franchise, taking on the role of the mutant Wade “Deadpool” Wilson in X-Men: Origins-Wolverine (2009). He is set to recreate this role in Deadpool (2016)
For DC: He got his big opportunity for super hero stardom playing the cosmic hero with the power ring in Green Lantern (2011). Sadly, that »

Aziz Ansari, whose next show will be on Netflix.
Hi everyone! I wanted you guys to hear it from me first, that the cast and I received news that Eye Candy will not be returning for season 2. Even though a lot of you are going to feel sad/angry, please know that playing Lindy Sampson, is something that I loved and I will hold dear to my heart. I couldn’t have asked for better cast mates to work with either. They are the most down to earth, talented and kind souls that I am so happy to have met. Then there’s our show runner @Christiantwit1 who is so awesomely talented and made a show that I am so incredibly proud to be a part of. A very special thank »

Every studio with a superhero on their roster is doing all they can to capitalize on the massive popularity of the genre and they.re all looking expand their brands. 20th Century Fox is no different, and their Wolverine is one of the most beloved cinematic superheroes out there. The upcoming Wolverine 3 is expected to be star Hugh Jackman.s last appearance as the clawed mutant, and that project may have found a new writer with some experience in the game. According to The Wrap, the studio has tapped Michael Green to pen the script for the hairy mutant.s next big screen adventure. This marks Green.s return to the realm of comic book adaptations, and while he has previously worked on the likes of Smallville and Heroes, his most known work is probably the ill-fated 2011 stab at Green Lantern. That met with rather brutal reactions from many fans, »
Little is known about James Mangold's sequel to The Wolverine, though it has been reported that the sequel will feature some sort of team-up between Hugh Jackman's Logan and Patrick Stewart's Professor X. Regardless, The Wrap reports Michael Green is set to write the movie for Fox and is working closely with Mangold on putting the project together. Green is no stranger to the world of comic books after working on Smallville and Heroes, while he's one of the many writers credited for Green Lantern too. He also penned a draft of The Flash a number of years ago, but his most recent projects include the Blade Runner and Prometheus sequels. Mangold's focus is now said to be on The Wolverine 2 (or 3 if you include X-Men Origins: Wolverine) after his next movie - The Deep Blue Goodbye - was put on hold due to an injury suffered by Christian Bale. »
Although it looked like director James Mangold would focus his attention on book adaptation The Deep Blue Good-By before heading back into comic-book territory for another Wolverine film, events have conspired to take that previous project out of contention for now. So it appears he’ll be fully turning his attention to Hugh Jackman’s Logan, and will definitely need a script for the film. Green Lantern co-writer Michael Green is aboard to help make that happen.Green has been somewhat in demand of late, particularly by Ridley Scott, who had him work on both the Blade Runner sequel (which Denis Villeneuve will direct) and the second Prometheus film, which Scott himself is developing to potentially direct. His background also includes work on TV shows such as Smallville and Heroes, so between Green Lantern and those, he’s had some superhero experience. Nothing is known about the new Wolverine’s plot, »
This week's Smallville-influenced episode of The Flash is a light-hearted hoot that really shows off its cast's comedy chops...
This review contains spoilers.
1.19 Who Is Harrison Wells?
The Flash has always been a bit like Smallville, in tone as well as in its willingness to have fun with easily-defeatable baddies with silly powers, but Who Is Harrison Wells? really, really went there. It was one of the first episodes to truly embrace the humorous potential of the show’s concept, as well as the comedy timing of its collective cast. The result? It’s a hoot, a lot more so than similar episodes of the aforementioned series.
The question in the title actually only makes up a third of the episode, as Cisco and Joe head to Starling City to find out what really happened after Wells’ car accident. It’s the first time either show has crossed over »

DeKnight, who created the "Spartacus" empire for Starz after serving on the writing staffs of nerd-friendly series like "Smallville," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel," isn't the official creator of "Marvel's Daredevil" — he took over for fellow Joss Whedon acolyte Drew Goddard. But he brought more than enough comic book savvy to the series, as well as an Asian cinema-influenced knack for violence and an appreciation for the variety of stories to be found within the superhero "genre." Below, he tells Indiewire about what, exactly, a "PG-15" rating means, what Joss Whedon taught him about making genre TV work for the masses, and whether — in the mix of discussion about the other Marvel series which will follow "Daredevil" — if he was planning for Season 2.
