Seeing as Marvel has pretty much dominated the headlines these past few weeks (well, months actually), we'll start things off this week with the year's next superhero offering Man of Steel. With less than a month to go until its eagerly-anticipated release a full-on marketing blitz is imminent, and this past week saw Warner Bros. debuting three new posters, two TV spots, two new »

Even before “Man of Steel” helps set up a “Justice League” movie at Warner Bros., the studio’s consumer products division is already getting consumers — especially kids and families — used to seeing the match up of the superheroes in the retail aisle.
Starting today, Target will exclusively start selling a summer collection of Justice League-themed merchandise themed around Aquaman, Batman, Cyborg, The Flash, Green Lantern, Superman and Wonder Woman.
But the look goes a little more pop-culture retro, with vintage and nostalgic designs that resemble the merchandise Wbcp recently launched around the campy 1960s “Batman” TV show.

The fact that The CW's new series "The Tomorrow People" is providing a regular home for the wonderful Mark Pellegrino is reason enough to give it a shot, but it will also be interesting to see if lightning can strike twice for the Amell family - on the same night.
Check out the first stills and a promo photo, and look for a premiere date announcement soon.
They are the next evolutionary leap of mankind, a generation of humans born with paranormal abilities — the Tomorrow People. Stephen Jameson stands at the crossroads between the world we know and the shifting world of the future. Up until a year ago, Stephen was a “normal” teenager — until he began hearing voices and teleporting in his sleep, never knowing where he might wake up. Now, Stephen’s issues have gone far beyond the usual teenage angst, and he is beginning to question his sanity. »

I can already feel my cynicism taking over as I look over my notes for this article about the CW’s Wonder Woman prequel series, Amazon. Full disclosure: aside from Batman, I have zero love for the heroes of the DC Comics universe. Superman, Flash, Green Lantern – I’ll pass on all of them. So it is completely beyond my understanding why Wonder Woman has been sought after these last few years as a potential television series. First we had that Adrianne Palicki pilot on NBC in 2011, and then the series went to the CW, but was re-imagined as an origin story for Diana Prince before she becomes a super hero. So it would be the Smallville of Wonder Woman.

Arrow season 2 to possibly serve up Green Lantern character,new spoiler. Recently, Movieweb, dished out a wild new,possible spoiler tease for the upcoming "Arrow" season 2. It turns out that we may see the appearance of the legendary Green Lantern in season 2 and beyond. If that weren't enough,it was also teased that we could see actor Ryan Reynolds reprise the role on the show. However, keep in mind that this was a very light conversation with producer Marc Guggenheim. There was definitely nothing confirmed. When the Green Lantern possibility question was brought up, Marc replied with, "I would never say never. It's certainly something that we've talked about. As with all DC characters, we have to figure out a way for those characters to fit within our Arrow universe. But when you consider the importance that Hal Jordan plays in the Green Arrow comics, it's certainly one of those »
Damon Lindelof (Prometheus, Star Trek Into Darkness) has offered some advice to Warner Bros. about their planned Justice League movie, which will tie together their superhero properties of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, etc - just like Marvel did with The Avengers / Avengers Assemble.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Lindelof was asked whether he would help WB solve their 'Justice League problem' if they called. He deflected the question with his superpower of Suggestion Shield...
"I think a lot of that depends on Man of Steel. The Justice League problem is not a problem of, who is the bad guy that Wonder Woman and Green Lantern, Superman, whoever you decide to pit them against. The problem is: What’s the tone of that movie? They’ve been struggling with launching their own tone. The tone of Green Lantern is very different from the tone of The Dark Knight. They »

The CW has long been one of the best supporters of Our Kind of Shows, and at this year’s Upfronts they put even more money where our hearts are. Of the six new shows announced for the fall and winter schedule, four are for us: The Originals, The Tomorrow People, The 100, and Star-Crossed. Now of course more than one has that trademark The CW soap opera-ish spin on it, but hey, not Every show is for every one of us.
Here to assist in our prejudging are synopses for all, via Deadline, and maybe even better, clips and/or TV spots. There’s not really anything new for The Originals, but fans will want to see it all again anyway. The Tomorrow People features the wonderful Mark Pellegrino so it’s my favorite of the four.
The 100 (pronounced “the hundred”, not “the one hundred”) has an encouraging clip, »

The CW announced its fall 2013-14 slate earlier today, adding five new dramas including a drama about Mary, Queen of Scots called Reign, as well as the highly anticipated Vampire Diaries spinoff titled The Originals, and The Tomorrow People, starring Robbie Amell, brother of Arrow’s Stephen Amell. The network has also released trailers which you can watch below. Let us know which shows you are interested in watching.
The Originals – Family is power. The Original Vampire family swore it to each other a thousand years ago. They pledged to remain together, always and forever. Now, centuries have passed and the bonds of family are broken. Time, tragedy and hunger for power have torn the Original Family apart. When Klaus Mikaelson, the original vampire-werewolf hybrid, receives a mysterious tip that a plot is brewing against him in the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans, he »
The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the fifth and final one announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on The CW.
After targeting teen girls for so long, The CW has widened their demographic focus and in the process have improved their fortunes with three of their five new shows from last year returning. One in particular, "Arrow," has been a big hit for them. As a result this year's line-up sticks heavily with genre fare - sci-fi, supernatural, and even a period piece.
The network's troubled "Nikita" has scored a six episode third season order to wrap up its story lines, no word on when those episodes will air just yet. In fact, specific premiere dates for all their shows have yet to be set.
Several other pilots didn't make the »

I enjoy Damon Lindelof's work. I like that he's a geek like the rest of us that we can relate to, only he's on the inside and gets to tell fun stories and make really cool movies. That's one of the reasons why I respect his thoughts on things going on in the film business, and why I enjoy the things he works on.
As you know, Warner Bros. has had a very hard time bringing Justice League to the big screen. In fact, they've had a hard time adapting any of their DC characters (other than Batman) as a feature film. It looks like they might have gotten Superman right with Man of Steel, but that has yet to be seen.
During a recent interview with THR, Lindelof was asked how he would solve the "Justice League problem" if Warner Bros. reached out to him for help. This »

Zack Snyder takes Superman very seriously. “In the comic-book universe, you have all these sort of minor celebrities that have been put up as the end-all, be-all,” Snyder told Hero Complex recently, throwing some shade at movies that have featured lesser heroes like Green Lantern, Ghost Rider and the Punisher among others. “And then you have the fallen king who’s sadly relegated to the shadows. It’s cool to resurrect him and say, ‘Understand that this is the granddaddy of all superheroes.’” That's fighting talk, especially given the grosses for "Iron Man 3," but Snyder has every reason to be confident at this point; the buzz on "Man Of Steel," is becoming increasingly deafening, to the point where we imagine Warner Bros. are keen for people to lower their expectations, for fear of being disappointed when the finished movie doesn't cure cancer or grow limbs back. But with less »

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has officially announced Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Adventure for the Wii U, 3Ds and Windows PC.
The vast world of Scribblenauts is huge, so gigantic that it’s a place for your imagination to thrive and come to life. It’s a world where you can pretty much think things into existence in order to help you on your quest. Not only has Scribblenauts been an imagination conducing environment, but DC comics fans can now look forward to seeing more than 2,000 characters and variations inspired and originating from the comic book collection.
In an interview with Polygon, senior producer of Scribblenauts Unmasked, Caleb Arseneaux says the game will have every character that has ever appeared in DC Comics, from those who have made the briefest cameo appearances to all the variations of Batman and Superman.
Just as the world of Scribblenauts has become bigger than the imagination, »

Love "Scribblenauts"? Love the DC Comics universe? Well you're in luck, because Warner Bros. Interactive and developer 5th Cell have teamed to release a version of the open-ended adventure puzzle game that combines both of those properties.
Called "Scribblenauts Unmasked," the latest installment in the series will incorporate more than 2,000 DC Comics characters including Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Green Lantern, Flash, The Joker, Killer Croc and The Penguin. But "Scribblenauts Unmasked" goes one step past just bringing those characters into the gameplay. It also will reportedly include every variation of each superhero or villain from the DC Comics catalogue.
The "Scribblenauts" games follow main character Maxwell as he solves a series of puzzles by summoning objects. In "Scribblenauts Unmasked," players seem to be able to summon whichever DC character they want along with objects like batarangs or abilities like superspeed. Similarly, a user is shown in the above trailer customizing »

Warner Bros. needs to do something with "Justice League" fast, otherwise interviewers will keep asking other people how to handle their potential franchise. Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige previously offered his take on the DC Comics films, and now screenwriter Damon Lindelof has weighed in.

The Justice League problem is not a problem of, who is the bad guy that Wonder Woman and Green Lantern, Superman, whoever you decide to pit them against. The problem is: What’s the tone of that movie? They've been struggling with launching their own tone.

With Arrow's first season finale airing Wednesday at 8/7c, TVGuide.com thought it would be a good time to look back at The CW's super series as a whole, and see if they heeded our original advice on how to make a show about DC Comics' emerald archer work.
12 things Arrow can learn from Smallville, Buffy and more!
Last summer, we gathered a list of 12 things that Arrow should and shouldn't do in order to be a successful series based on tried-and-true heroic formats, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Green Lantern, Batman Begins and superhero predecessor Smallville. Let's take a look and see if they listened:

During Fox‘s Upfront presentation yesterday, they announced that they are jumping into the realm of “event series”. Although they aren’t providing a definition, the inference is that, one, it will be short season, what we used to call half seasons but are more and more becoming the norm, based on successful cable models of 8-12 episodes; and two, they will be standalone seasons/series, based on the model of Fox‘s cousin FX‘s American Horror Story.
The benefits to viewers are pretty great. These shorter seasons are usually broadcast without a break, and there are no unresolved cliffhanger endings and no “but how will they do this next season?” or “save our show!” or “this show is getting stale” grumbling, because we know ahead of time when the season/series will be over.
