Supergirl Recruits Jeremy Jordan As The Villainous Toyman

7 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

CBS’ forthcoming small screen extravaganza, Supergirl, has added a new threat to its roster of characters. The Wrap reports that Jeremy Jordan – recently seen singing his heart out with Anna Kendrick in The Last Five Years – has signed on to play an enemy of the titular comic book hero.

Jordan’s role will be that of Winslow “Winn” Schott, a tech genius and superstar It whiz who works alongside Kara at Cat Grant’s mega-corporation, CatCo. DC fans will no doubt recognize his rather pedestrian-sounding name, which masks his true identity as the terrible Toyman.

Created by The Arrow and Flash producer, Greg Berlanti, the show will trace Kara Zor-El (Glee‘s Melissa Benoist)’s earthly experiences after she flees Krypton for a life on our humble planet. As an effort to blend in, she takes employment with successful business owner, Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart), who runs the aforementioned global organization. »

Rupert Friend Is A One-Man Army In New Poster For Hitman: Agent 47

2 March 2015 9:39 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

20th Century Fox has debuted a new international poster for the studio’s upcoming video game adaptation, Hitman: Agent 47, which sees Homeland star Rupert Friend as the titular one-man army.

Marking director Aleksander Bach’s first venture behind the lens, Agent 47 will kick the lore established by the Timothy Olyphant-fronted sequel to the kerb in favor of a full reboot. With Friend starring as the elite, genetically-modified agent, Bach’s film will see him hunted down by a power-mongering mega-corporation intent on using his DNA to engineer an entire squad of controllable killing machines.

We gained a gist of the bombastic tone of Hitman: Agent 47 a few weeks back when the explosive, bat-shit insane first trailer made its way online. Bach is certainly pulling no punches in transitioning the long-running video game franchise from medium to medium, it just remains to be seen whether the balls-to-the-walls actioner »

New poster for Hitman: Agent 47

2 March 2015 3:26 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following last month’s first look trailer [watch it here], a new UK poster has arrived online for the video game adaptation Hitman: Agent 47, which we have for you here…

Hitman: Agent 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research – and forty-six earlier Agent clones — endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47’s past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins and squares off in an epic battle with his deadliest foe. »

PopPolitics: How ‘Madam Secretary’ Became an Antidote to Dark D.C. Dramas (Listen)

28 February 2015 1:06 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Madam Secretary,” which returns on Sunday on CBS after a brief hiatus, has made a mark for what it isn’t — a tick-tock thriller or dark serialized drama that is part of the current wave of D.C.-set shows.

The show stars Tea Leoni as a CIA analyst who is unexpectedly nominated to the top role at the State Department.

Executive producers Barbara Hall and Lori McCreary tell Variety‘s “PopPolitics” on SiriusXM that the show avoids polarization — even though it has featured very-close-to-reality storylines about negotiations over Iran’s nuclear capabilities and the standoff over the Texas border with Mexico.

“Certainly there is an aspirational aspect to the show that this is the way we would like to think the way things could be resolved, because we do want to stay within the realm of reality and we do want to invite people into the process,” Hall says. »

Helen Slater And Dean Cain Land Secret Guest Spots On CBS’ Supergirl Series

27 February 2015 11:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

CBS’ forthcoming Supergirl series continues to flesh out its growing cast roster with the addition of two surprising – yet familiar – names. TV Line reports that Helen Slater and Dean Cain have boarded the show for what are being described as two “top secret, guest-starring roles.”

This marks the third time each actor has appeared in the Superman-Supergirl canon. Slater first made waves in the titular role for 1984’s Supergirl movie, while Cain portrayed Clark Kent on the small screen in ABC’s long-running series, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. Both went on to guest star on The CW’s Superman drama Smallville; the former as Clark’s birth mother Lara, and Cain as Dr. Curtis Knox. For now, the network are keeping the details of their specific roles on Supergirl under wraps.

One thing’s for certain – they won’t be reprising their original franchise roles. Kara »

"Supergirl" Series Casts More Key Roles

26 February 2015 10:36 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The cast for CBS' "Supergirl" series continues to fill out with two more names joining the list - "Grey's Anatomy" actress Chyler Leigh and "Homeland" actor David Harewood.

Melissa Benoist stars as Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin, who was born on the planet Krypton and escaped amid its destruction years ago. Taken in by a foster family who taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers, the series begins with her turning twenty-four and coming into her own - in the process using her powers for good.

Leigh will play Alexandra "Alex" Danvers, Kara's confident foster sister whose lifelong obsession with Kara's powers and the science behind them inspired her to become a doctor.

Harewood would play Hank Henshaw, a onetime CIA agent who now runs the Department of Extra-Normal Operations (Deo) which tracks extraterrestrial threats on Earth. In the comics, Henshaw becomes the 'Cyborg Superman' - whether we'll see »
