Helen Slater, Dean Cain Join CBS' "Supergirl"

28 February 2015 9:42 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Two former superbeings are set to join the cast of CBS' upcoming "Supergirl" TV series - Dean Cain and Helen Slater. TV Line reports that the pair will guest star on the series, but their roles are being kept secret for now.

Cain played Clark Kent/Superman in the 1990s TV series "Lois and Clark," while Slater played Supergirl herself in the 1984 feature film alongside Faye Dunaway and Peter O'Toole.

Both Cain and Slater previously guest starred on another Superman-related series, The CW's "Smallville," which also saw Cain's former co-star Teri Hatcher and big screen Superman Christopher Reeve in guest starring roles.

Indeed, the precedent is becoming quite common these days. The CW's "The Flash" using the original 1990s TV series star John Wesley Shipp in the role of Barry Allen's father in the current incarnation. »

‘Supergirl’ Meets Supergirl As Slater Swoops In

28 February 2015 4:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Hot on the heels of Calista Flockhart’s casting, CBS have announced another powerful female presence for the line up of their Supergirl TV series. Helen Slater, star of the 1984 movie of the same name, is taking what’s described as a “top-secret” role.

Also signing up is former Lois & Clark star Dean Cain, who needs no introduction to fans of the Kryptonian franchise. He was of course Clark Kent with Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane. Slater and Cain guest-starred on previous small screen saga Smallville, so it’s looking like the new show will be tipping the wink to incarnations past.

The main cast is toplined by Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El/Supergirl, with Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen and Flockhart as Cat Grant and sees the action revolve around a media empire, presumably along the lines of The Daily Planet in Superman.

British actor David Harewood recently joined the line up. »

27 February 2015 1:23 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

A former Superman and Supergirl has joined the new CBS incarnation of the Girl of Steel! TVLine broke the big (and possibly biggest geek worthy) news for Supergirl earlier today, revealing that Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman’s Dean Cain and Supergirl The Movie’s Helen Slater have joined the project in two secret roles. Cain is known for his terrific potrayal of Clark Kent a.k.a. Superman on the Lois & Clark series back in 1993 that ran for four seasons on ABC (the series also starred Desperate HousewivesTeri Hatcher as Lois Lane). He also appeared in an episode of the Superman prequel series Smallville as Dr. Curtis Knox (an adapation of the DC villain Vandal Savage) in Season 7. Slater is known for her great portryal in the sadly not-so-well-received Supergirl movie back in 1984, which starred big names such as Peter O’Toole and Mia Farrow. Like Cain, »

Helen Slater And Dean Cain Land Secret Guest Spots On CBS’ Supergirl Series

27 February 2015 11:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

CBS’ forthcoming Supergirl series continues to flesh out its growing cast roster with the addition of two surprising – yet familiar – names. TV Line reports that Helen Slater and Dean Cain have boarded the show for what are being described as two “top secret, guest-starring roles.”

This marks the third time each actor has appeared in the Superman-Supergirl canon. Slater first made waves in the titular role for 1984’s Supergirl movie, while Cain portrayed Clark Kent on the small screen in ABC’s long-running series, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. Both went on to guest star on The CW’s Superman drama Smallville; the former as Clark’s birth mother Lara, and Cain as Dr. Curtis Knox. For now, the network are keeping the details of their specific roles on Supergirl under wraps.

One thing’s for certain – they won’t be reprising their original franchise roles. Kara »

Viola Davis Will Get Away With Yelling at Supervillains in Suicide Squad

25 February 2015 12:35 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Suicide Squad has finally decided who's going to be bossing around its various villains: Viola Davis, who confirmed at the Oscars that she will indeed play Squad handler Amanda Waller in the 2016 film. Waller is a groundbreaking figure in the comics universe; Vulture's Abraham Riesman describes her as "a more energetic Dick Cheney, except black and female and (slightly) less evil." She's been part of a bunch of DC projects over the years — played by Pam Grier in Smallville, Angela Bassett in Green Lantern, and, currently, Cynthia Addai-Robinson in Arrow — but Suicide Squad will likely be the character's time to shine. »

20 February 2015 7:45 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The King of Atlantis has arrived! Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder dropped the first image of Jason Momoa suited as Aquaman, and he.s nothing like we.ve ever seen before. When you think of the model-turned-surfer-boy rendition of Smallville, as played by Alan Ritchson, this version of Arthur Curry looks a million times better . and way more badass. Comic book fans have been making their jokes for a while now, and Snyder has heard them all. But no matter what grievances you might take with this new look, Aquaman bodes great things to come for the DC universe. There is only one true King. #unitetheseven pic.twitter.com/RDFG8jbuI6.

Sam Witwer Wanted For "Crow" Remake

12 February 2015 2:59 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After being attached for over a year and having had to turn down projects in that time, it is unsurprising that Luke Evans ultimately had to bail on "The Crow" reboot last month due to his busy schedule.

Of course, his departure has led to the inevitable question about who may be hired to replace him. No actor has yet been selected, but the comic's creator James O'Barr made an appearance at Wizard World Madison over the weekend and came up with one suggestion.

According to Blastr, O'Barr has reportedly been in contact with former "Smallville" and "Being Human" actor Sam Witwer for some time about the role and believes the actor has "the look and ability" to portray Eric Draven. However O'Barr still needs to convince director Corin Hardy of the choice:

The long-awaited reboot of The Crow hit another stumbling block last month, when actor Luke Evans backed out of the lead role as Eric Draven, due to his busy schedule.

James O'Barr has reportedly been in contact with Sam Witwer for some time about the role, and he believes the actor has "the look and ability" to portray Eric Draven. Here's an excerpt from Blastr's report, revealing that James O'Barr still needs to convince new director Corin Hardy that Sam Witwer is the right choice.

'Robotech' Movie Back on Track with '300' Writer

4 February 2015 2:48 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros.' long-gestating Robotech live action adaptation is finally getting back on the right track, with the studio bringing in screenwriter Michael Gordon (300, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) to pen the screenplay. Hollywood Gang's Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton are set to produce, and are searching for a director, with Deadline reporting that Andres Muschietti (Mama, Shadow of the Colossus) is currently their top candidate.

The project has been in development for several years, with writers Alfred Gough & Miles Millar (Smallville) attached to write the script over six years ago. Sylvain White (The Losers) was once attached to direct, although the project never moved forward. Most recently, commercials director Nic Mathieu was hired to direct back in January 2013, but it never got off the ground.

The original Robotech animated TV series debuted in 1985, set in a future where humans have developed massive robots from a downed alien spacecraft on a South Pacific isle. »
