'Gotham' gets 'The Last Laugh' on all of us, with an episode at once both a series' height, and a frustrating low. No joke, our full review of tonight's latest!

Our long national nightmare will abate this week, as both The Flash and Arrow return to the airwaves with new seasons. We’ve seen a few snippets from Barry Allen’s next big bad, but big is the name of the game in our first full clip from the Season 2 premiere, as “Flash Day” ends up interrupted by DC’s Atom Smasher.
The fastest man alive is one step closer to getting a writer and director for the big screen.
After rewatching Mad Max: Fury Road over the weekend, there were a few immediate takeaways. One, this movie is still awesome, even after multiple viewings. Second, I think we’ve undervalued the score by Junkie XL. The DJ/composer (also known as Tom Holkenborg) contributed perhaps his best work to Fury Road, a compulsive and propelling piece of music that is as important to the success of that film as anything else. And comic book fans should be excited to know that following that film, Junkie XL has now officially signed on to work on Deadpool next.
Marvel’s Jessica Jones has taken an unusual approach to early promotion, only releasing its first photos and teasers a month or so before the premiere, leaving us to fill in the gap. Now, we know that acclaimed Orange is the New Black and Dexter director S.J. Clarkson will helm the first two installments, also acting as executive producer.
The moment The Flash first teased that Golden Age speedster Jay Garrick would join Barry Allen for Season 2, we knew the cheeky CW series couldn’t resist recreating some classic comic moments. Now, those photos come to life, as Barry and and a fully-costumed Jay rescue Patty Spivot in first photos from “Flash of Two Worlds.”
About a month ago a rumor was circulating that Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was in talks to helm Man of Steel 2. Then came the rumors that the sequel was placed on indefinite hold (or not?), but that Miller was still in talks with WB to take on another DC superhero project. Miller himself has finally responded to those rumors and gives us a hint about what he’s planning to do next.
Back in August, the announcement of NBC’s Powerless TV series set in the DC universe had comic fans crying afoul of a similar premise to Marvel’s Damage Control comics. Well, good news! Marvel has officially one-upped its rival with intent to develop Damage Control as a live-action comedy on ABC.
Big news from the land of Asgard; stuff so surprising not even Heimdall could have seen it coming.
Arrow Season 4 will arrive in just a few days’ time, and The CW has afforded no shortage of previews and teasers for the October 7 premiere. We also know that initial episodes will help set up 2016's Legends of Tomorrow by the return of Sara Lance, and the newest press release tells us when, and how it will happen.
