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. »
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 »

Syfy’s “werewolf” series Bitten stars is based on the bestselling author Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series of novels. In anticipation of the season 2 debut, we sat down with stars Laura Vandervoort and Greyston Holt to discuss the show and what we can expect from the new season…
Greyston, I know Laura you already talked about this, but can you talk about kind of your character’s experience being with the witches and how it’s going to kind of change Clay this season?
Greyston Holt: Yes. I mean, I think it just – it broadens all of our horizons a little bit you know. It’s a big bomb to drop in our world that there was – there were others out there with you know supernatural abilities and there’s a whole new world that’s opened up and I think it’s just kind of »

London — AMC Global has acquired the exclusive first-window international television rights to the AMC original series “Into the Badlands.”
The series is a genre-bending martial arts show inspired by the classic Chinese tale “Journey to the West.” In a land controlled by feudal barons, a warrior and a young boy embark on a journey across a dangerous land to find enlightenment.
- Leo Barraclough
The series, which comprises six, one-hour episodes, will air on AMC Global within 24 hours of its fall premiere on AMC in the U.S.
“Into the Badlands” toplines Daniel Wu, a Hong Kong-based Chinese-American actor, director and producer, who has appeared in more than 60 films. The cast is completed by Emily Beecham (“28 Weeks Later,” “The Village”), Sarah Bolger (“The Tudors,” “In America”) and Oliver Stark (“The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box,” “My Hero”).

I was pretty stunned to learn yesterday that Nina Dobrev, aka Elena Gilbert, was leaving The Vampire Diaries after Season 6, which is currently airing and has only a few episodes left. Also departing is Michael Trevino/Tyler Lockwood, but his character has been in and out of The Vampire Diaries for years now. The real story is Dobrev and her unexpected exit. In a statement, Dobrev claims that there was always a six-year plan in place for her character, though that seems odd given that she has essentially been the lead of the show since the beginning. I would compare this to say, Kristen Kreuk or Michael Rosenbaum leaving Smallville around this point in the series, but as important as Lana Lang and Lex Luthor were to Superman mythology, they were still supporting characters. Dobrev leaving is more equivalent to if Clark Kent himself had left the show instead. Or is… »
The midseason drama stars Friel (Pushing Daisies) as Sergeant Odelle Ballard, an American soldier who, in the midst of an unplanned takedown of Al Qaeda’s top commander, stumbles across enormously volatile intel — the transfer of $30 million from the American company “Soc” to a terrorist cell. Soon afterwards, private military contractors, Osela, arrive to take out Odelle’s entire unit, though she secretly survives, the only witness to the massacre. »
But make no mistake, the midseason thriller (premiering Sunday at 10/9c) is inspired by the epic poem.

As series co-creator Peter Horton explains, “Three-and-a-half years ago, I had been working with my writing partners, Adam Armus and Kay Foster, on a different project that didn’t work out, so we were looking for something else to do. [British producer] Simon Maxwell came to us and said, »

The CW Network has added yet another actor to its Arrow / Flash Spinoff cast, bringing aboard Doctor Who star Arthur Darvill to play DC Comics character Rip Hunter. We reported earlier this month that the spinoff will feature three characters from the DC Comics who have never been featured on a TV show before, with Rip Hunter being the second of these mystery roles to be cast. Here's the description of his character, previously known as "The Traveler," from this month's earlier report.
"Described as a "Han Solo-esque rogue who gets by with his charm, this hero hails from the future, and has journeyed back in time on a secret mission. His razor-sharp wit hides the pain of a man who has lived through serious conflict. He also harbors many secrets, always leaving both his teammates and the audience unsure of his true allegiances."
The news comes just hours after »
Rising star Ciara Renee has signed on to play Kendra Saunders, a.k.a. Hawkgirl in The CW's Arrow/Flash Spinoff. Earlier this month, we reported that the series will introduce three characters from the DC Comics who have never been seen on TV before. One of these characters was known as the "Female Warrior," described as, "a twentysomething Latina who is pretty but unassuming, book smart and socially awkward by day." The character becomes a "fierce warrior" by night, to the extent, "that sometimes she can become a threat to others." Hawkgirl was previously featured on Smallville and in the animated series Justice League, so this character might not be the "Female Warrior" in question. Though it should be noted that the Smallville version of the character was Kenrda's Aunt Shayera Hall.
The CW’s crossover spinoff series involving key characters from The Flash and Arrow has added a brand new name to its leading roster. Set to join the highly-guarded series is Ciara Renee, whose TV debut came recently on Law and Order: Svu, in the role of Kendra Saunders Aka Hawkgirl.
A relative newcomer to the industry, Renee will be collaborating on the comic book team-up alongside a slew of returning stars from both individual shows. Brandon Routh (Arrow’s Ray Palmer/The Atom), Wentworth Miller (The Flash’s Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (The Flash’s Mick Rory/Heat Wave), Victor Garber and Caity Lotz are all signed on for appearances. The latter – Caity Lotz – is one of the most intriguing additions to the cast as her character perished on Arrow, therefore making her return all the more mysterious.
