Despite a game lead performance from smallscreen star Katie Cassidy (“Arrow”) as a young woman with multiple personality disorder and an incorrigible punk attitude, this latest low-budget outing from helmer John Suits simply doesn’t have the imagination or resources necessary to pull off its clumsy stabs at visual pizzazz. Instead, the result resembles what Zack Snyder’s maligned curio “Sucker Punch” might have looked like if it had been made by “Sharknado” producers the Asylum. Prefabricated for a cult following unlikely to ever materialize, “The Scribbler” faces a bleak future beyond the margins of a Sept. 19 day-and-date limited theatrical/VOD release followed by a homevid bow one month later.

However, when a new villain (guest star Peter Stormare) emerges, who has claimed the name Vertigo from the recently deceased Count, Oliver is going to get caught off-guard and someone close to him is hurt.

CBS is joining the superhero arms race: The Eye network has commissioned Supergirl, partnering with producers Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Mysteries of Laura), Ali Adler (Chuck, Glee), and Sarah Schechter for a new take on the DC Comics character. Word of the project first leaked out a few weeks ago, with DC and Warner Bros. TV then pitching the idea to various networks around Hollywood. CBS landed it after agreeing to a so-called series commitment, which means the network will have to pay Warners a massive financial penalty if it opts to back out of Supergirl (This makes it very likely the show will end up on the air, though nothing’s ever for sure at CBS, as the producers of How I Met Your Dad can attest). Berlanti and Adler’s take on Supergirl (they’re writing the pilot together) begins with Krypton refugee (illegal alien, if you’re »

The Supergirl TV show is officially a “go”. We heard a couple of weeks ago that Arrow and The Flash executive producer Greg Berlanti was developing a possible TV series based on the DC comics heroine, and now Deadline reports that CBS has given a big series commitment to Supergirl. The drama will be written by Berlanti and Ali Adler (The New Normal, No Ordinary Family), with Adler also acting as an executive producer on the series. Apparently CBS’ straight-to-series commitment is bigger than the one Fox recently gave to the upcoming Gotham, which is a prequel of sorts to the Batman storyline. This continues the expansion of comic book adaptation fever into the TV world, which is becoming more and more crowded with small screen iterations of famous superheroes. More on Supergirl after the jump. For those unfamiliar, the character of Supergirl was introduced in the comics world in 1959. She is, »

Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler's high profile "Supergirl" pilot has already found a home and its destination may just surprise you. "Supergirl," which comes from Berlanti Productions and Warner Brothers TV, has received a series commitment from CBS, which is making a slightly surprisingly leap into the superhero world. DC Comics' aggressive push into TV has seen the network land "The Flash," "Arrow" and "iZombie" at The CW, "Gotham" at Fox and "Constantine" at NBC. [Both "Arrow" and "The Flash" also come from Berlanti Productions.] While ABC doesn't have a DC Comics property, that may have just a wee bit to do with corporate ties to Marvel, which has brought the network "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and the upcoming "Agent Carter." The logline for "Supergirl" explains, "Born on the planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. »

CBS has given a series commitment to an hour-long drama about Kara Zor-El, the DC Comics heroine who escaped the planet Krypton amid its destruction. Having hid all this time on Earth the powers she shares with “her famous cousin” (as the official logline cheekily puts it), 24-year-old Kara decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and “be the hero she was meant to be.”
Based on the DC Comics character, the drama tells the story of Kara Zor-El, who was born on the planet Krypton, but escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin Superman. But now, at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

“Supergirl,” which is based on characters from DC Comics, comes from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television and is exec produced by Berlanti, Adler and Sarah Schechter. It’s based on the story of Kara Zor-El, who, like her famous cousin, escaped Krypton amid its destruction. She’s been keeping her powers a secret since arriving on Earth, but now — at age 24 — she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

Look, up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's another superhero coming to the small screen! CBS has given a series commitment to a one-hour drama project for “Supergirl,” based on characters from DC Comics, an individual familiar with the project told TheWrap on Friday.

Cool guys don't look at explosions on the first teaser poster for Season 3 of “Arrow.” Team Arrow — plus Laurel — is seen front and center strutting their way away from Starling City, which appears to be engulfed in flames. Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is flanked by Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and Laurel (Katie Cassidy), while Diggle (David Ramsey) and Roy (Colton Haynes) are in full Arsenal garb, bringing up the rear.

Forget kryptonite. The real killer for the superhero TV genre might be oversaturation.
Geoff Johns, Cco of DC Entertainment, is aware of this risk and is battling it through a diversification plan. This fall, the Warner Bros.-backed company will have four shows on three networks. It also has a fifth, the quirky, femme-skewing “iZombie,” in the warmer for the midseason on the CW.
“We’re creating this DC Universe world and introducing these DC heroes that we haven’t even gotten to talk about yet,” Johns says. “If you look at the shows we’re developing this season with Warner Brothers and all the networks, you can see they are all very different… Diversity in the properties and the tones and the shows is really important because there’s a huge audience out there and we want to have stuff for everybody. That goes from film to comics to games to TV shows. »

Every summer tells the same story: superheroes reign supreme at the global box office, with studios churning out sequel after reboot after prequel to capitalize on pop culture’s hottest trend. This year’s undisputed champion is Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which has raked in over $300 million domestically to date.
But while Marvel continues to dominate the big screen, rival publisher DC Comics is poised for a small screen coup. This fall, DC and Warner Bros. Television have three hotly anticipated comicbook properties slated to hit the air: the CW’s “Arrow” spinoff “The Flash”; NBC’s darker “Constantine” and Fox’s Batman prequel series “Gotham,” with CW procedural “iZombie” on deck for midseason. Looking ahead to next season, TNT is also nearing a pilot production order for “Titans,” a one-hour drama that will focus on DC’s younger heroes, while Fox just gave a put pilot production »

Arrow‘s Facebook and Twitter feeds on Wednesday at long last lifted the hood on the CW hit’s Season 3 poster, and it features (a lot of sky plus) an arrow-shaped quintet of crimefighters.

The core Team Arrow — Oliver, Diggle and Felicity — is now joined by Roy (decked out in full Arsenal gear) and legal eagle Laurel, who now is wise to ex-beau Oliver’s nocturnal activities (and earned a positional upgrade from last year’s poster).
With Arrow's seasons running to 23 episodes, there’s never a shortage of villains. Now a new name has been added to the ranks for season 3, alongside Matt Nable’s Ra’s al Ghul, Rila Fukushima’s Katana and more.
We’ve learnt that Nick Tarabay will appear in two episodes as Digger Harkness, better known to comic book readers as Captain Boomerang, traditionally a baddy for The Flash to deal with.
Hence why his second episode (episode eight of Arrow season three) will be a two-hour crossover event with The Flash, with Captain Boomerang as the main threat. Expect to see some actual boomerangs, as that name isn’t traditionally figurative.
You might recognise the man throwing things at our two heroes, as Tarabay has popped in various geek-friendly projects over the last few years. »
Warner Bros. is showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to bringing DC Comics characters to the small screen, as Deadline is now reporting that Lucifer, a character who debuted in Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman and eventually got his own eponymous spin-off, has been given a pilot commitment at Fox.
Californication creator Tom Kapinos will write and produce the show, and if it gets picked up it will follow the titular Devil as he resigns his throne and abandons Hell in favor of the “gorgeous, shimmering insanity of Los Angeles, where he opens an exclusive piano bar called Lux.”
If picked up for series, Lucifer will join a handful of other DC Comics shows, including The CW’s Arrow, The Flash, and iZombie, NBC’s Constantine, and Fox’s Gotham, as well as in-development shows like Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler’s Supergirl, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Preacher at AMC, »

Another regular from Starz's "Spartacus" is joining the cast of "Arrow" as a villain.

Tarabay will appear in the seventh and eighth episodes of the new season, the latter serving as part of a two-hour crossover event between "Arrow"" and "The Flash".

In the comic books, Captain Boomerang is a regular nemesis of Arrow, who is equipped with specialized boomerangs that he uses with uncanny accuracy.
Nick Tarabay joins a growing roster of DC characters on Arrow for Season 3, including Matthew Nable as the season's primary villain, Ra's al Ghul, Amy Gumenick as Cupid, Brandon Routh as Atom, Peter Stormare as Vertigo, J.R. Ramirez as Wildcat, »
Warner Bros’ ambitious comic book adapted series, Arrow, took us on a journey of adventure, conspiracy and a crap load of action in its freshman season. In season one, we found security in our heroic vigilante, even if he wasn’t secure in whom he was or the kind of hero he wanted to be. Arrow Season 2 takes all of our comfort zones and squeezes them through the ringer. Deathstroke is in the mix as well as array of other villains. And the Green Arrow has got to put his inhibitions aside and grow his team. That’s right, Smallville fans. Arrow has pushed the story and adrenaline forward in a way we only wished could have happened by Smallville’s fifth season. Plus, the showrunners tossed in enough comic book Easter eggs to make even the staunchest fan giddy with excitement.
What did the producers get right in Season »
