Here’s How Natalie Dormer Could Look As The Dceu’s Supergirl

Here’s How Natalie Dormer Could Look As The Dceu’s Supergirl
It’s been almost two years since Warner Bros. first announced plans for a movie revolving around Supergirl, but we still haven’t heard a lot about its development.

Fortunately for fans of Kara Zor-El, the Girl of Steel has remained a presence in the pop culture landscape thanks to The CW’s eponymous show. The network even has its own version of Superman, played by Tyler Hoechlin. The actor embodies everything you’d expect to see from the Man of Steel, which is probably why they asked him back alongside Bitsie Tulloch for the spinoff series Superman & Lois.

When it comes right down to it, though, the world has yet to get over Henry Cavill as the Last Son of Krypton. Luckily, the Snyder Cut of Justice League has allowed the Decu to give Cavill another chance as Superman, and we couldn’t be more excited. But what about his cousin,

Game of Thrones: 10 Things That Make No Sense About Margaery Tyrell

Game of Thrones: 10 Things That Make No Sense About Margaery Tyrell
In the world of Game of Thrones, every episode was impossibly dense with tons of jockeying for power and political posturing in every episode. This included the character of Margaery Tyrell, portrayed by Natalie Dormer, who led with a kind heart when enacting her clever plotting around the realm.

However, there are still some actions and decisions from Margaery that don't make any sense. This includes actions that were in the process when she was killed and actions that seem reckless at the time. Most of what makes no sense about Margaery, however, is the way others saw and viewed her. Hadn't she proven herself trustworthy time and again?

The Showtime series “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels” premiered on April 26, 2020. While technically a spin-off of the original “Penny Dreadful” series, “City of Angels” is more of a spiritual successor than direct continuation of the original’s story. The series examines racial divisions of the past as supernatural deities loom over the proceedings. Explore exclusive video interviews with top Emmy contenders from the show below.

Quotes of the Week: Stargirl, Blindspot, Penny Dreadful, S.H.I.E.L.D. and More
Much like a good Independence Day fireworks show, this week’s TV included dialogue that was colorful, explosive and downright jaw-dropping — and it’s all featured in our latest Quotes of the Week gallery.

This time around, we’ve got a Match Game contestant who’s probably regretting his chosen career path, a slightly misquoted Bible passage on Greenleaf, two Search Party friends who just want to be on the news and a Cannonball participant who embodies what the show is about — quite literally.

Maria Caso (‘Penny Dreadful: City of Angels’ production designer) on recreating 1938 LA: ‘You want the sets to honor the characters’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
“It’s a dream come true,” exclaims production designer Maria Caso of working with John Logan. She collaborated with Logan on the new Showtime series “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels” and brought Los Angeles of 1938 to life. A period specific look isn’t enough for Caso, as she goes to great lengths to infuse character into each set. Watch the exclusive video interview above.

“I consider him to be a historian,” Caso explains, referring to series creator and writer Logan. “He has a depth of knowledge of so many things.” That wealth of knowledge arrived in a thick packet of historical information about 1938, which Logan gave to the design team on day one. “The show is about racial, political issues in 1938” which still ring true in today’s world, according to Caso. So in order to “honor the stories” of that time, she and her team spent three days speaking

How Natalie Dormer Kept Her 4 Different Roles Straight in ‘Penny Dreadful: City of Angels’

How Natalie Dormer Kept Her 4 Different Roles Straight in ‘Penny Dreadful: City of Angels’
A version of this story about Natalie Dormer and “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels” first appeared in the Drama/Comedy/Actors issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine.

If Natalie Dormer did nothing in “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels” but play the dark goddess Magda, the British actress would have had a juicy role as a supernatural force intent on pushing the human race into turmoil in 1930s Los Angeles. But one of Magda’s special powers is that she can assume any form she wishes — so in addition to appearing on screen as Magda, Dormer also gets to play three of her human iterations in the mousy but scheming political aide Alex, the German-American housewife Elsa and the zoot-suited gang leader Rio.

“For any actor, I think your ears prick up when you get offered the chance to play four roles for the price of one — how many times is

Paco Cabezas (‘Penny Dreadful: City of Angels’ director) on creating a ‘sunny noir’ horror story: ‘Everything feels vibrant and alive’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
“Everything feels vibrant and alive,” describes director Paco Cabezas of the show “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels.” Cabezas directed the first two episodes of Showtime’s new horror noir story and worked hard to find the right tone for the story. Watch the exclusive video interview above.

One of the biggest hurdles in shooting was figuring out how to pull off elements of horror in a sunny location. “City of Angels” is set in 1938 Los Angeles, a far cry from the grim, gothic locales of the original “Penny Dreadful” series. Cabezas has plenty of experience in the world of horror, having helmed Spanish thriller “The Appeared,” and installments of “Fear the Walking Dead” and “The Strain.” But, he admits that this bright setting was “virgin territory” for scary happenings.

Emmys 2020: For Period Costume Designers, Colors and Prints Denote Time

Emmys 2020: For Period Costume Designers, Colors and Prints Denote Time
Glow” costume designer Beth Morgan was excited to show not only the “glitz of Las Vegas” in the third season of Netflix’s 1980s-set wrestling comedy, but also “a few layers” of life on the Strip when the characters temporarily relocated to the fictional Fan-Tan Hotel & Casino to perform a live wrestling show.

For Morgan, one part of capturing the Vegas of yesteryear was designing “how women were overly sexualized as cocktail waitresses,” so she went for authentic cuts and fabrics found in the town back in the day. But another part was putting a “Glow” spin on such costumes via an intentional combination of “all the Asian cultures” for the Fan-Tan Hotel & Casino. The waitresses there wore a mish-mash of styles and accessories, including fans, to create an aesthetic that she notes was supposed to be somewhat “ignorant” of the time and place.

Although you get a fair amount of production value with “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels,” “the idea is to show that and then get into the details,” reveals cinematographer John Conroy. Showrunner John Logan is “always keen to celebrate big wide shots,” but “it’s not all about the scale of it.” Ultimately, “it’s about the story.” The Emmy-nominated Dp delved into those details while appearing at Gold Derby’s Meet the Btl Experts panel, moderated virtually by managing editor Chris Beachum.

A spinoff of Logan’s original “Penny Dreadful,” this Showtime series takes place in 1938 Los Angeles, where two detectives (Daniel Zovatto and Nathan Lane) are investigating a grisly murder that has ties to the city’s dark history.

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels Ending Explained
Penny Dreadful: City of Angels ends with the same lines in which it began: “There will come a time when the world is ready for me, when nation will battle nation, when race will devour race, when brother will kill brother until not a soul is left. Are you ready?” Only this time, Magda (Natalie Dormer) isn’t saying it to her sister, Santa Muerte (Lorenza Izzo). She is saying it to one of two brothers who are now on very different sides of a struggle they were both born to.

Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) doesn’t tell Magda whether he is ready in the penultimate scene, but her gloved touch fills him with a burning determination. She approaches him from behind. At first, he appears soothed, but then acknowledges this is not a friendly touch. He looks like he’s making a choice. Magda appears to believe he’s reached a foregone conclusion,

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels Episode 10 Review – Day of the Dead
This Penny Dreadful: City of Angels review contains spoilers.

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels Episode 10

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels closes out the season in a strangely moving way, which is par for the course for a series like this. It’s not because of who and what is lost during the episode, but the movement of the arc which is thrown off-kilter. “Day of the Dead” opens with a funeral march which swings into an uprising. The repercussions will rattle Los Angeles heavily for days, but the implications will rearrange the urban landscape forever.

The future belongs to “big, fat men” like Mussolini, Huey Long and himself, Councilman Charlton Townsend (Michael Gladis) declares over a celebratory breakfast. The event which makes him so happy is the exact kind of thing someone in his position should be appalled by: a riot in the very city he has sworn responsibility to.

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels Episode 9

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels episode 9, “Sing, Sing, Sing,” is, for the most part, a celebration, but not because of any anti-fascist resistance or solved crime. Last week’s cat and mouse game didn’t catch itself a canary. Tonight’s episode opens where last week’s left off. Detectives Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) and Lewis Michener (Nathan Lane) are licking their wounds after a machine gun ambush sidetracked their takedown. Michener is most pissed about the loss of his classic V-12 car and he’s running on all pistons.

The standoff between Michener and Richard Goss (Thomas Kretschmann) is a joy to behold. There are so many layers to it, beyond the enormously satisfying dialogue. Michener’s a Jew in a restricted club, which has to be fun for Lane to play going in.
