Joss Whedon To Direct The Flash And Supergirl Musical Crossover?

Yesterday, the CW announced at the TV Critics Association press tour that the CW would be doing something quite interesting with two of their DC shows: they'd have a two-part musical crossover between them. The shows in question were The Flash and Supergirl, though they also implied that other characters in this Greg Berlanti-created universe may join in on the fun.

This isn't the most interesting bit of news now, however. 

According to a report from YouTube channel That Hashtag Show, the CW has turned to Joss Whedon himself to direct the musical crossover.

This is crazy cool on a couple of different levels. First is the obvious fact that Joss Whedon was once one of the key architects of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the Arrow-verse is no DC Extended Universe, this bit of news would solidify Whedon taking the leap from one comic book giant to the other.

'MST3K' Reboot Lands Felicia Day as Dr. Forrester's Daughter

'MST3K' Reboot Lands Felicia Day as Dr. Forrester's Daughter
Earlier this month, Mystery Science Theater 3000 creator Joel Hodgson launched a Kickstarter page, asking for at least $2 million to create new episodes of the cult classic TV series. The campaign reached its first goal of $2 million in just eight days, which will fund the first three episodes, but they are seeking as much as $5.5 million to produce an entire 12-episode season. The campaign has raised $2.59 million so far, and earlier today, Joel Hodgson posted an update on the Kickstarter page, revealing that Felicia Day has come aboard to portray Kinga Forrester, the daughter of Dr. Clayton Forrester, with comedians Hampton Yount and Baron Vaughn set to voice Crow T. Robot and Tom Servo.

Felicia Day's Kinga Forrester will be the new Mad Scientist in this updated version of MST3K, who Joel Hodgson described as both comedic and threatening. The original mad scientist was her father, Dr. Clayton Forrester,

'S.H.I.E.L.D.' Lands Powers Boothe, Is He the New Red Skull?

'S.H.I.E.L.D.' Lands Powers Boothe, Is He the New Red Skull?
Powers Boothe (Sin City, Deadwood, Nashville) has joined Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in a recurring role as Gideon Malick, a notorious man whose loyalties remain a mystery. Boothe previously appeared in Marvel's The Avengers as a member of the World Security Council. While Marvel wouldn't say much more about Gideon Malick, it's possible that he could actually be the next Red Skull. Here's what Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, had to say in a statement regarding the casting.

"Gideon is incredibly menacing and in him we have a character that even the stone-cold Grant Ward would fear. Only someone of Powers' caliber could deliver the type of ominous and powerful performance we needed."

In the aftermath of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s battle with Jiaying and the Inhumans, Director Coulson will search the world for more powered people and will face threats unlike the world has ever seen.

'Avengers' Made Joss Whedon Less Money Than 'Dr. Horrible'

'Avengers' Made Joss Whedon Less Money Than 'Dr. Horrible'
While under Marvel Entertainment CEO Isaac Perlmutter, Marvel Studios became notorious for it's penny pinching ways. But how far did they go to save a buck? According to Joss Whedon, he's made more money from his internet musical Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog than he did from directing the first Marvel's The Avengers. He disclosed this information during this past Saturday night's Dr. Horrible reunion. But is what he says true?

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog was an independently financed project that he put together back in 2008, and it has been a cult hit ever since with a strong army of fans. Whedon noted that writing and directing Marvel's The Avengers netted him far less than the 45-minute video starring Neil Patrick Harris as the title character. The actor joined the director, along with Felicia Day and Nathan Fillion to celebrate the 7 year anniversary of Dr. Horrible, which kicked off Paleyfest NY

What’s Up With the Dr. Horrible Sequel?

What’s Up With the Dr. Horrible Sequel?
Whedonites got a double dose of geek love on Saturday in New York — first the Firefly panel at New York Comic Con in the morning, and the Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog reunion at Paleyfest in the evening. Although the moderator for the latter tried to get the 411 about a Dr. Horrible sequel, Joss Whedon swerved the conversation into another topic: finances, where he revealed yet again that he made more money doing Dr. Horrible, a mostly free webisode series, than he did directing the first blockbuster Avengers film. Luckily for those who really want to know about the sequel, Vulture chatted with Whedon, Nathan Fillion, and Neil Patrick Harris before the panel. ("Sequels are my favorite!" Whedon laughed. "They always go so well for me.")How much has been written? There is a title (which Whedon won't share just yet), there is an outline, and there are songs. Will there

Joss Whedon Says He Earned More Making 'Dr. Horrible' Than 'The Avengers,' Weighs In On Marvel Vs. DC

Two years ago, Marvel's reputation for being careful with money when it came to talent became very public. The tough negotiations the studio was having with the ensemble of actors to return for "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron" spilled out into the trades. The various negotiations were resolved, and even Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, who had from time to time strongly intimated they were ready to walk way from the series, are now more than ever happy to participate. But that hardly means Marvel has changed their methods. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Joss Whedon reveals that it was only during the making of "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron" where he finally understood “what it feels like to get paid.” Indeed, he claims he earned more making his own "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" than he did directing the first 'Avengers' movie. “They are in the

Add Felicia Day to the list of online video personalities with their own books. The actress, vlogger, and writer, who runs the Geek & Sundry network, has announced You're Never Weird On The Internet (Almost), a memoir about her rise to online fame. Day's story is a shining example of the Internet's star-building power.

Jimmy Wong Will Raffle Away A Car As Part Of New Indiegogo Campaign [Exclusive]

Jimmy Wong is going back to his YouTube roots. Jumping off his current turn in season three of Video Game High School, Wong has launched an Indiegogo campaign for Band Aid, a six-episode musical comedy series. Band Aid and features a group of four ex-bandmates who reunite when lead singer Chase (played by Wong) launches one last attempt to win over his crush Jo (Abbe Drake) before she leaves town. Along the way, regular musical numbers will keep Band Aid lively (in the spirit of other musically-inclined comedic programs like Flight of the Conchords, Tenacious D, and Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog).

Neil Patrick Harris Imagines 'Gone Girl' as a Broadway Musical

If you only know Neil Patrick Harris from his role as the charmingly rakish lothario on "How I Met Your Mother," then you don't know Neil Patrick Harris.

Harris has an insane amount of range and just as much talent. This year alone he closed out "How I Met Your Mother," starred in "The Smurfs 2" and won a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical for the Broadway revival of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch." Now that's something.

This week, Harris can be seen in David Fincher's stone cold masterpiece "Gone Girl," where he plays Desi, the untrustworthy ex-boyfriend of a Missouri woman (played by Rosamund Pike) who goes missing, putting her husband (Ben Affleck) in the crosshairs of both the police investigation and the media spotlight.

We got to sit down and chat with Harris about what it was like working for the notoriously demanding Fincher,

Read Nathan Fillion's Wonderful Foreward To Joss Whedon's Biography

While most people know of the relationship between Joss Whedon and Nathan Fillion as being a Firefly - and, by extension, Serenity - thing, there really is so much more than that to their collaboration. Even before Fillion became Captain Malcolm Reynolds, he was working with Whedon on Season 7 episodes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and the years since their sci-fi show was cancelled they've found time to work together on projects like Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog and Much Ado About Nothing. They have the kind of friendship where if one were to have a biography written about them, the other would write the introduction. And, believe it or not, that's exactly what has happened. We recently brought you the heartfelt email exchange between Tom Hiddleston and Joss Whedon that was published in the new book about writer/director/showrunner, and now USA Today has published -in full - the
