7 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

  We found out earlier today who will be playing Wildcat in Arrow this year (click here for details on that if you missed it), and now E! Online have revealed that Kelly Frye will play Bete Sans Souci, a.k.a. Plastique in season one of The Flash. The actress - whose credits include NCIS: Los Angeles and The Mentalist - will make her debut in the fifth episode. This take on the character is described as, "A bomb disposal expert in Iraq who, following exposure to the energy released by the S.T.A.R. Labs meltdown, Bette now has the ability to turn any object she touches into an explosive device. On the run from the shadow forces in the U.S. government trying to turn her into a human weapon, she finds an ally in fellow meta-human The Flash." So, it sounds like Plastique won't be a villain. »

New Gotham Trailer Packed With Easter Eggs

28 July 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fox’s upcoming series Gotham, which charts the struggles of Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) to clean up the streets of Gotham City long before Batman ever arrived on the scene, fared very well at Comic-Con this year. The pilot episode was screened in Hall H on Saturday night to major applause from attendees – in particular, Sean Pertwee’s edgier Alfred Pennyworth was a hit, and audiences also loved Gordon’s action heroics.

Now, a new trailer for the series has arrived, including teases for Oswald Cobblepot’s (Robin Lord Taylor) transformation into the villainous Penguin and a better look at the fateful night in Crime Alley when young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) lost his parents to an armed mugger. There’s a lot of other exciting stuff on display in this trailer as well, including some cool lines from Gordon, glimpses of Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Camren Bicondova) and more of »

“I guarantee you, things are crawling out of the shadows on a scale we have never seen before, John.” Thankfully, occult detective John Constantine’s knowledge and wit stand between us and these increasingly daring evil spirits. Based on a popular DC comic book series, Constantine is coming to NBC this October, and a new trailer was unveiled at Comic-Con yesterday, along with a behind-the-scenes music featurette.

NBC’s Constantine will premiere on Friday, October 24th at 10:00 pm. It was recently revealed that leading lady Lucy Griffiths, who plays Liv in the pilot episode, had left the show and will be replaced with a new female character straight out of the comics: Zed, a woman with a dark past who aids Constantine in his battle against malicious forces from Hell. Actress Angelica Celaya (Dallas, Burn Notice) will play Zed.

The new Comic-Con trailer provides viewers with the longest look yet at the series, »

Gotham showrunner talks Joker and Poison Ivy plans

21 July 2014 3:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fox’s upcoming Batman prequel series Gotham has been generating a ton of fan interest because of its heavy focus on the Dark Knight’s extensive rogues gallery, who appear to be just as front-and-center in the series as its main protagonist, the young up-and-coming detective James Gordon.

Showing us early incarnations of these villains will be no easy feat, and is hopefully something the writers and showrunners will approach cautiously. It will be all too easy for them to throw in all kinds of easter eggs, fan-service cameos and winks at the audience; but luckily it seems like they’ve got a plan that will stray away from that.

Executive producer Bruno Heller (Rome, The Mentalist) was present at the Television Critics Association press tour on Sunday, and answered some questions about two of Batman’s most famous and beloved villains, the Joker and Poison Ivy.

Fox is ramping up publicity for its buzzy new series Gotham ahead of its September debut, and now, hot on the heels of an appealing teaser for the show, we’ve been treated to a new crop of images by Entertainment Weekly, which featured Gotham in a recent issue. There are no startling revelations in the shots, though I don’t recall seeing much of Wayne Manor, home to a young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) and butler Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee), before this point.

Other pics include shots of protagonist James Gordon (Ben McKenzie), the new addition to the Gotham City Police Department destined to become the troubled city’s police commissioner; ruthless gangster Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith); Mooney’s underling Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor), who may be developing an affinity for penguins in this series’ run; and Alfred, a much younger iteration of the character than DC Comics »
