The Guardian Is Back In New Supergirl Promo Images

Back in season 2, Supergirl writers aimed to spice up James Olsen’s character by having him take up crime-fighting under the guise of Guardian. However, fans didn’t take to the change much and it seems the writers themselves got bored of the development. In season 3, James hasn’t suited up once as the chrome-domed vigilante. Well, at least until now, that is.

In the upcoming eleventh episode, titled “For Good,” Mehcad Brooks’ character will finally step out from behind his desk at CatCo to dish out some justice as Guardian once again. As these new promo images from the outing reveal, he’ll suit up to take on corrupt businessman Morgan Edge (Adrian Pasdar), who’s been causing trouble in National City since the season premiere.

Colin Firth said he won’t appear in any more Woody Allen films, telling The Guardian in a statement: “I wouldn’t work with him again.”

Firth, who starred in Allen’s Magic In The Moonlight in 2014, is the latest actor to turn their back on the controversial 82-year-old filmmaker.

Allen’s adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow accused him of molesting her in an attic when she was seven years-old in a TV interview with CBS yesterday (January 18), prompting the director to deny the claims.

Allen was never charged in relation to the alleged incident and issued a statement denying the allegations.

He said: “The Farrow family is cynically using the opportunity afforded by the Time’s Up movement to repeat this discredited allegation, that doesn’t make it any more true today than it was in the past. I never molested

The two most famous whistleblowers in modern history discuss Steven Spielberg’s new film, The Post, about Ellsberg’s leaking of the Pentagon Papers, the personal cost of what they did – and if they’d advise anybody to follow in their footsteps. Introduced by Ewen MacAskill

Daniel Ellsberg, the Us whistleblower celebrated in Steven Spielberg’s new film, The Post, was called “the most dangerous man in America” by the Nixon administration in the 70s. More than 40 years later, the man he helped inspire, Edward Snowden, was called “the terrible traitor” by Donald Trump, as he called for Snowden’s execution.

The Guardian has brought the two together – the most famous whistleblower of the 20th century and the most famous of the 21st so far – to discuss leaks, press freedom and other issues raised in Spielberg’s film.

Stars Support Lorde's Decision To Boycott Israel

Over 100 well-known names – including writers, actors, directors and musicians – have signed a pledge supporting Lorde's decision not to perform in Israel.

The statement was published in The Guardian following backlash over the Kiwi singer’s cancellation of her concert in Tel Aviv. It is a direct response to a full page ad published in the Washington Post on January 1 which called Lorde a bigot and also attacked her homeland of New Zealand.

“We deplore the bullying tactics being used to defend injustice against Palestinians and to suppress an artist’s freedom of conscience. We support Lorde’s right to take a stand,” reads the letter in The Guardian. "Shmuley Boteach, the author and promoter of the advert, supports Israel’s illegal settlements and wrote last month on Breitbart to thank Donald Trump for “electrifying the world” with his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in defiance of international law.

Book-a-Day 2016 #6: Baking With Kafka by Tom Gauld

  • Comicmix
Is Tom Gauld our most erudite cartoonist? From the evidence of his work, he well could be — there’s a parade of authors both classic (Shakespeare, Austen) and genre (Ballard, Gaiman) and modern literary (Franzen, Mantel), and a dazzling awareness of tropes and ideas and genre furniture in his work, and it’s hard to think of any other cartoonist who has worked so much with this material.

Naysayers might point out that all of this material originally appeared in the book section of the British newspaper The Guardian, and so one could thus expect that bookishness would be baked into the premise. That’s true, but, still Teh Grauniad asked Gauld to be their cartoonist in the first place for a reason, and it’s not because of his amazing facility at drawing likenesses of famous writers.

(Just in case: Gauld does not have an amazing facility for drawing likenesses of famous writers.

International Newswire: ‘Game of Thrones’ Draws Overseas Plaudits, Huge Ratings
In today’s International Newswire, “Game of Thrones” conquers the hearts of audiences and critics alike in international territories; the BBC tunes into a new singing contest format; and the Swedish company behind sci-fi drama “Humans” is taken over.

As “Game of Thrones’” Season 7 climaxed to extraordinary audience figures in the U.K., punching 3 million viewers on pay-tv service Sky, vs. 1.8 million for the Season 6’s finale, reviewers across Europe and Latin America saluted the spectacle and drama of the HBO uber series — even as some, as in the U.S., poked holes in the storyline.

“A supersized, expertly paced and deeply satisfying close to the season, with a big reveal and a recurring theme: family,” proclaimed the U.K.’s The Guardian. At the end of a “spectacular yet uneven season,” the longest “Game of Thrones” episode yet was “also among the most breathtaking and incident-packed,” The Telegraph wrote. “After an irregular season,
