I have long been skeptical about the prospect of a Supergirl series, not because I didn’t think it could work, but because of the immense obstacles involved in making it work well. Not only do you have to give Supergirl a place in a television landscape overrun by male heroes, but you have to allow her to escape the looming shadow of her more famous Supercousin, and do so with special effects that don’t look terrible on a television budget.
Luckily, all of my doubts were proven wrong by the pilot episode of the upcoming CBS series, which debuted at San Diego Comic-Con last night. Supergirl flies high in her premiere and stakes her own claim amidst the other television heroes like Arrow and The Flash.
You can read my full (slightly spoilery) review of the pilot episode here.
Will you be tuning in to Supergirl when it premieres in October?
The Joker, one of the single greatest and most iconic villains of all time, turns 75 years old today. To celebrate, here’s a quick look back at several of the different film and TV iterations of the character, from Cesar Romero’s mustachioed Clown Prince to Heath Ledger’s Oscar-winning agent of chaos.
We’re only a week into 2015 and we’ve seen Paul Rudd ride a flying ant and Hayley Atwell kick ass as Agent Carter. It’s going to be a cool year.
It’s been a long wait, but Arrow is finally back! It’s hard to believe that a few years ago, I was not only skeptical but a bit cynical about a Green Arrow TV show. Now, three years in, it’s one of my favorite shows currently on television and is undoubtedly the best superhero TV series we’ve seen.
Season three picks up five months after the explosive events of season two, and though Starling City is enjoying a bit of piece, we’ve merely reached the calm before the storm.
They say a hero is only as good as his villain, and this year on The Flash Barry Allen will have his work cut out for him as he faces various members of The Rogues, a team of supervillains who unite to take him down.
We’ll be seeing several Rogues on the series this year, from Captain Cold to Gorilla Grodd. Weather Wizard is first out the gate though, and raises hell in Central City in The Flash‘s premiere episode (read my review here). This summer I was given the chance to talk with Weather Wizard himself, Chad Rook, and asked him about his role on the show, his history with comics, what the future may hold for Weather Wizard, and more!
