Geoff Johns Confirms Superboy And Lex Luthor For Titans

The first trailer for Titans, the first live-action take on the teen superhero team coming to the DC Universe streaming service, was unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con yesterday, and it promised a dark, gritty and R-rated interpretation of Robin and his band of adolescent vigilantes. In particular, we got glimpses of Raven, Starfire, Beast Boy and Hawk and Dove. But they won’t be the only iconic DC comics characters making appearances.

Speaking at the Titans panel at Sdcc, Geoff Johns let slip that we can expect to see not just Superboy in Titans but also his “parent” Lex Luthor. The comic book writer (and Titans exec producer) was recalling how he originally pitched the storyline that revealed Supes’ clone was also partly derived from Luthor’s DNA to DC comics co-producer Dan Didio when he revealed the news:

“I pitched [Dan Didio] the Superboy/Lex Luthor thing — which we’ll get to [on Titans] eventually.

20 Things Wrong With Smallville We All Choose To Ignore

When Smallville premiered in 2001, superheroes were beginning to show their box office dominance but had not taken over our pop culture the way they have today. As such, a show like Smallville, which took superhero concepts and characters seriously still felt pretty ground-breaking in the world of television. That said, there is no use in trying to pretend like the series couldn’t have been improved if some creative decisions were reconsidered.

For many people sitting down to watch TV, the thing that matters most is whether or not the episode that is currently on is entertaining. What a lot of people don’t realize is that there are so many things that can happen behind the scenes to make an episode fall short of expectations. For instance, things like network interference, legal issues, budget constraints, and simple miscommunication can result in some subpar television. Whatever the reason, no matter

Oliver Will See Some Familiar Faces In Prison In Arrow Season 7

Throughout the course of six seasons, Arrow has played host to some pretty crazy cliffhangers. And though we could debate for hours which among them were the best, you have to admit that what we witnessed back in May has to be near the top of the list.

Long story short, Oliver Queen publicly admitted that he’s the Green Arrow after turning himself over to authorities. Granted, Smallville‘s iteration of the character also revealed his secret identity, but the ramifications that followed didn’t have the high stakes of what we’ll soon witness.

With Ollie now in Supermax lockup, it’s impossible to ignore the elephant in the room, that being the certainty of him running into some truly bad dudes. In fact, new showrunner Beth Schwartz confirmed as much when speaking with TV Guide for their latest Comic-Con Special:

“‘Prison isn’t great for Oliver Queen.

Killjoys' Aaron Ashmore Q & A: His Technical Genius, an Upcoming Battle & More!

It's not easy being John Jacoqis.

On Killjoys, returning Friday night on Syfy, John is the team's pilot, mechanic and tech genius, as well as its primary wise-ass.

As Aaron Ashmore, who plays the lighthearted character, explains, John continues to evolve during Killjoys Season 4. He's now the senior nerd to the socially inept Zephyr. Also, a darker side of John will peek through, at least for a while.

Canadian actor Ashmore is best known in the states for his starring roles in Smallville and Warehouse 13. (It's his twin brother Shawn Ashmore viewers may remember from the series The Following and Conviction.)

Smallville’s Sam Witwer Joins Supergirl Season 4 As Agent Liberty

Supergirl has always paid homage to its CW predecessor Smallville by bringing back several stars of the long-running Superman prequel show. Laura Vandervoort (Kara Kent) played Indigo in season 1 while Erica Durance (Lois Lane) joined the cast as Supergirl’s mother Alura last season. Other DC legacy actors like Teri Hatcher, Dean Cain and Helen Slater have likewise appeared on both shows.

In season 4, Supergirl will add another former Smallville regular to its line-up. Sam Witwer, who played David Bloome in season 8 (spoilers: he turned out to be the human form of Kryptonian monster Doomsday), has been hired as Agent Liberty, a new villain said to be portrayed as an anti-alien hatemonger.

Here’s how EW describes Witwer’s character:

“Agent Liberty is the ruthless and terrifying founder and figurehead of Children of Liberty, a hate group that supports a human-first world order. According to a description from the show’s producers,

Sam Witwer joins Supergirl season 4 as Agent Liberty

Smallville and Star Wars Rebels star Sam Witwer has joined The CW’s DC superhero series Supergirl in the series regular role of Agent Liberty, who will be one of the primary antagonists of the fourth season.

EW describes the show’s version of the character as “the founder and figurehead of the Children of Liberty – a hate group that supports a human-first world order. Ruthless and terrifying, the scariest thing about Agent Liberty might be just how easily he can convince you that he’s in the right. He’s a brilliant orator in the guise of a family man.”

Witwer is no stranger to the DC universe, having portrayed Davis Bloome/Doomsday in the eighth season of Smallville. He becomes the third Smallville alum to appear in the series after Erica Durance and Laura Vandervoort.

Another Smallville alum is setting a course for National City — and you’re going to love to hate him.

Sam Witwer, who played Doomsday on the eighth season of Smallville, is joining Supergirl in the series-regular role of Agent Liberty, EW.com reports.

Witwer’s character serves as the charismatic — and, of course, deeply evil — founder of Children of Liberty, an anti-alien hate group dedicated to establishing humans as the superior race. According to the show’s producers, he conceals his vile nature “in the guise of a family man,” making it all the more difficult to take him down.

A Batwoman Series is Being Developed By The CW

A couple months ago Arrow star Stephen Amell announced that DC's Batwoman would be making her big live-action debut in an upcoming Arrowverse crossover. A lot of fans speculated that this could lead to a solo series of her own, and now that has been confirmed to be the case.

According to Variety, The CW is developing a Batwoman series that will debut in 2019 if it gets picked up. I'm sure it will because everyone is looking to fill up their slates with female superheroes these days. Here's the synopsis that was released:

In the series, Kate Kane, armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior,

‘Batwoman’: The CW Developing Lesbian Superhero As a New DC Drama Series

The CW has grand plans for “Batwoman” beyond this coming season. As previously announced, the character will appear in December during the network’s next DC crossover event, which includes “Arrow,” “The Flash,” and “Supergirl.” But “Batwoman” is now also being developed as a separate series.

Smallville Star Is Down For An Animated Revival

Though we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to DC TV shows nowadays, a lot of fans still miss Smallville, The CW’s Superman prequel that lasted for a whopping 10 seasons from 2001-2011. There’s little chance of a full-on revival of the series, but stars Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum have come up with an interesting alternative: an animated version.

The actors – who played Clark Kent and Lex Luthor, respectively, on the show – put forth the idea at Awesome Con a few months back. Now, ComicBook.com has passed on their comments to their old co-star Kristen Kreuk, who portrayed Clark’s first love, Lana Lang. The actress wasn’t aware of their proposal, but she seemed to like the idea as she said it “could be a lot of fun.”

“Yeah, absolutely. I’ve never thought about it, but that sounds like it could be a lot of fun…

Rumour: Seamus Dever portraying Trigon in Titans

Back in January of this year it was rumoured that DC’s live-action Teen Titans series Titans would feature Trigon as its big bad, and now FandomWire is reporting that Seamus Dever (Castle) is portraying the demonic villain.

Dever was cast in the show earlier this year, and while his role was kept under wraps, speculation did suggest that he’d be playing a villain.

If you’re unfamiliar with Trigon, the character is an interdimensional demon and one of the most powerful beings in the DC Universe, who also happens to be the father of the Teen Titans member Raven (played by Teagan Croft).

It certainly wouldn’t be a surprise if Trigon does feature in the show, given that his connection to Raven was highlighted in her official character description where she was referenced as “the daughter of a demon”.

Arrow’s Stephen Amell Debunks Popular Season 7 Rumor

With Ollie now in Supermax lockup, the question on everyone’s mind is in regard to how long he’ll stay there. Already though, we know season 7’s premiere is titled “Inmate 4587,” so there won’t be too radical of a time jump once the saga resumes.
