DC's TV superhero stock grew even higher this week with the news that a 'Supergirl' series has begun development, and the playing field will get even more crowded if NBC's 'Constantine' has anything to say about it. To wit, Irish actor Emmett Scanlan has been added to the recurring cast of NBC's occult drama, portraying the eventual alter-ego of occult DC superhero "The Spectre"!
These are a few of the potential villains who could rear their ugly heads in 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2.' Some feel like sure things, others are longshots and some may be prove impossible for legal reasons, but each of them would give Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot enough conflict to sustain a two hour movie.
The other day we nodded in approval at the rumor of a potential 'Supergirl' TV series to bolster both DC's presence on television and the need for more female-led superhero properties, though few details were available. Now, sources confirm the project in development under 'Arrow' producer Greg Berlanti, though the series may end up with a new title, and new take on the character altogether.

With its September 22 premiere nearly upon us, we non-spoilerly break down the strengths and weakness of FOX's new Batman prequel drama 'Gotham.' Is this new take on the Dark Knight and his hometown the origin story we deserve, but not the one we need right now? Our full review inside!
As 'Batman vs. Superman' very clearly teases the upcoming 'Justice League' crossover (the subtitle is 'Dawn of Justice' after all), we all sort of assumed that The Rock's long-teased 'Shazam!' movie would fit into that blueprint somehow. Even The Rock himself tweeted the art above of his character, Black Adam, fighting both Shazam and Superman. But, now it seems that 'Shazam!' will be operating independently from the rest of the other DC superheroes at Warner Bros.
