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 »

Casting call reveals possible synopsis for X-Men: Apocalypse, suggests Wolverine and Gambit will appear

11 May 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With production underway on X-Men: Apocalypse, a casting call for extras has landed online, which appears to give us our first plot synopsis for the Bryan Singer-directed superhero sequel. Oh, and it also “confirms” Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine and Channing Tatum’s Gambit – although it should be noted that these casting calls are often mistaken and so we should probably wait until we hear something official from Fox before taking that as gospel…

X-Men: Apocalypse will follow the super powered mutants battling their most powerful foe yet, the devious and devastatingly dangerous Apocalypse. This legendary villain uses his incredible abilities to alter his physical form, access other mutant superpowers and telekinesis to recruit a cult-like group called the Four Horsemen to be his servants and do his bidding in an all out war against the X-Men.

Alternate History: What If George Miller’s Justice League Wasn’t Cancelled?

6 May 2015 1:33 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

[Alternate History is a new feature in which we take a closer look at some of the bigger “What Ifs” of the movie world.] Marvel and DC have been at war for decades. But whereas most of their previous battles took place in the pages of comic books, the new front is now the world of mega-budget superhero movies, and Marvel has a very, very big lead. DC—by way of its home at Warner Bros.—is currently in “catch up” mode, hoping to explode its own interconnected universe of films with next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, whose very title makes clear the fact that it’s a prelude to a two-part Justice League event. But things almost turned out differently on the DC side. Very differently. In 2007, following the success of Batman Begins and the disappointment of Superman Returns, Warner Bros. was unsure how to proceed with its bevy of comics properties. Christopher Nolan was developing what would become The Dark Knight, but WB was noodling around with the »

Batman Facts: 25 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Dark Knight

1 May 2015 3:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Happy Batman Day, everyone! Around the world, May 1st may mark a spring holiday, but here, it marks the first appearance of the Dark Knight, in Detective Comics No. 27, in 1939.

For the past 76 years, the Caped Crusader has been fighting Gotham City evildoers in comic books, movies, TV shows, and pretty much anywhere else you can shine a Bat-signal. Throughout the years, Bruce Wayne's alter ego has gone through many incarnations, not just in actors (from Adam West to Michael Keaton to Christian Bale to Ben Affleck, among the many), but also in character, from haunted avenger to squeaky-clean do-gooder to campy clown to kinky prowler to world-weary fighter. He's due for yet another change this week, with the releases of DC's Batman No. 40 -- in which Bruce Wayne and the Joker finally kill each other (or do they?) and a special issue of DC's Divergence, where an undisclosed character »

Second Opinion – Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

25 April 2015 4:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron, 2015.

Written and directed by Joss Whedon.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, Paul Bettany, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Thomas Kretschmann, Cobie Smulders, Claudia Kim, Andy Serkis, Don Cheadle, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Hayley Atwell and Linda Cardellini.

Synopsis:

When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and it is up to the Avengers to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans.

I looked back at my review of The Avengers from 2012 and the opening paragraph struck me as one which I’d never consider writing now;

“Firstly, I love films based on comic book characters and I enjoy many summer blockbusters, so I cannot complain that I wasn’t part of The Avengers’ target audience. Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Batman, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, X-2, X-Men: First Class, »

Watch Now: Darin Beckstead’s Evil Nature Proof of Concept & Exclusive Q&A

21 April 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Every October, we stab them with knives, killing their regular appearances and bringing them to new life with sharpened teeth, ghoulish gazes, and impossibly wide, sinister smiles. We make pumpkins into little monsters every year, but what if they came to life on their own... and wanted revenge for the years of jack-o'-lantern carvings, discarded guts, and baked seeds? Darin Beckstead's Proof of Concept for his planned feature film, Evil Nature, expertly explores this unnerving "what if?" with ample amounts of holiday humor and creature-centric horror. We've been provided with the fun and frightening Evil Nature Proof of Concept to share with Daily Dead readers, along with an exclusive Q&A with director Darin Beckstead.

The Surprisingly Prolific Comic Book Actors

20 April 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr. has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).

Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned, »

Josh Hartnett Explains Why He Turned Down Christopher Nolan's Batman Movies

17 April 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In the early 2000s, young heartthrob Josh Hartnett was in a position that many young actors would envy. He had just starred in two big movies (“Pearl Harbor” and “Black Hawk Down”) from two very different auteurs, and for a while it seemed like he could be the next top tier star: a new Tom Cruise or Will Smith. But Hartnett avoided being locked down in any possible blockbuster franchise by turning down one superhero role after another, yet there’s one he regrets saying no to. In a short interview with Playboy (via Variety), Hartnett was asked about the times he was asked to play Superman for Bryan Singer in “Superman Returns,” Spider-Man for Sam Raimi’s film of the same name and Batman for Christopher Nolan. What was his reasoning for turning down such potentially lucrative roles? “The intensity of my sudden fame was overwhelming for me, and in the middle of that, »

Kevin Spacey’s Greatest Performances

8 April 2015 11:14 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey is an eminent actor and a well-respected performer of his generation. He constantly puts in solid performances in any movie, television or theatrical projects he involves himself in and is a consummate professional. He recently picked up the Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series Drama award at this years Golden Globe ceremony in Los Angeles for his much praised role as the conniving Francis Underwood in Netflix Original series ‘House of Cards’. And with the third season of the award-winning series heading our way later this month we thought we’d take a look back at some of the best and most iconic movie roles the 55-year old actor has managed to accumulate over the years.

In 1996 the actor managed to snare his first nomination and Oscar win for his supporting role in Bryan Singer’s fantastic crime thriller ‘The Usual Suspects’. Filled »

Ranking all 7 Superman movies from worst to best

6 April 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

With Brandon Routh back in a DC-created superhero costume (as the Atom on Arrow), a new Supergirl show being teased for TV, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice less than a year from landing, it feels like a perfect time to revisit and rank all of Superman's live-action cinematic outings.

We've ordered them from worst to best, and you should probably brace yourselves for a few surprises along the way. So, whip off your glasses, run to your nearest phone-box, twirl around a bit, and then maybe put your glasses back on because you might need them if you want to read the following.

7. Superman Returns (2006)

Okay, so before you grab your Kryptonite pitchforks/aim your heat vision in our general direction because we've ranked Bryan Singer's Christ allegory below Christopher Reeve's attempt to secure world peace (which everyone else agrees was the nadir for the franchise), hear us out. »

'Arrow' and 'The Flash' Spin-Off Cast Ciara Renee and Arthur Darvill

31 March 2015 4:50 AM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Following the success that the CW has had with The Flash (with the help of Arrow) over its first season, a Flash/Arrow spin-off has begun moving forward. Arrow co-creators Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg have all signed on for its development. With The Flash, Arrow and this new series all living in the same universe, more crossover episodes are undoubtedly planned.

The series has been set to star Brandon Routh (Arrow's Ray/The Atom, Superman Returns' Clark Kent/Superman), Caity Lotz (Arrow's Sara/Canary), and has now picked up Ciara Renee to play Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl and Arthur Darvill to play Rip Hunter.

10 Things DC Wants You To Forget About Lex Luthor

26 March 2015 1:54 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Superman may be the archetypal superhero from whose rib all later comic book heroes were created, but Lex Luthor is far from your typical supervillain. The Man Of Steel’s arch nemesis is a smart, conniving, megalomaniacal and intensely driven sort that isn’t a world away from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg; or at least the Mark Zuckerberg from the recent movie The Social Network. And if his world domination plan involved social media instead of robots.

Which makes Jesse Eisenberg’s casting as the villain in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice a stroke of genius. Eisenberg has the requisite chops to not only make Luthor the true threat he is – despite lacking any powers of his own, and coming up against the indestructible Last Son Of Krypton – whilst also conveying what a complex character Lex is.
