We’re a little over four months from the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will launch a whole new world of films into our lives: the DC Cinematic Universe. Spinning out of the events of 2013’s Man of Steel, it will pit Henry Cavill’s Superman against Ben Affleck’s Batman, and put both characters on the path toward a massive two-part film about DC’s heavy-hitting super-team, the Justice League of America, which will also feature the exploits of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), the Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and more.

The tragic Friday events of Paris’ terrorist attacks made impact on a number of TV series, including SNL’s sympathetic cold open, while CBS will next alter its programming out of respect. Both Supergirl and NCIS: LA will shuffle their episode orders, the Monday episodes of which featured content disturbingly similar to the awful attacks.
Ant-Man director Peyton Reed recently confirmed his return to helm the sequel, which will feature Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly reprising their roles as Ant-Man and the Wasp in the appropriately-titled Ant-Man and the Wasp. While we haven’t gotten confirmation that any of their co-stars from the first film will be joining them, Michael Douglas seems to suggest that we can count on another appearance from Hank Pym.
Although Wonder Woman doesn’t hit theaters until 2017, it looks as if filming has already begun on Gal Gadot’s solo superhero adventure. Wonder Woman will make her debut next spring in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, while co-star Chris Pine has just popped up in a new set photo, giving us our first look at Steve Trevor — along with a new cast member.
Before Supergirl took flight with her October premiere, CBS offered up a sneak peek of Salem star Iddo Goldberg in the role of notable DC android Red Tornado, to mixed reception at best. Now, with November 30 installment “Red Faced” inching closer, Supergirl shows off a much better look at the character in action with new photos, as well as a synopsis.
Doctor Strange boasts an excellent cast and promises to take the MCU in a very weird, very mystical direction — but will there be, you know, any action? For those who were concerned that Marvel’s latest might not be as action-heavy as its predecessors, fear not, as director Scott Derrickson has tapped martial arts pro and action star Scott Adkins, ensuring that Doctor Strange will come with a little kick.
Having a superpower would be pretty awesome for any of us to have, but that doesn’t mean that all superpowers are created equal. For every “faster than a speeding bullet” there’s someone like Chlorophyll Kid, who can make plants grow. James McAvoy is currently playing one of the superheroes with the best powers — the telepath Professor X in the X-Men movies — and was asked what he thought the worst superpower would be, and he quickly threw one of his co-stars under the bus.
There’s no denying that Arrow Season 4 and The Flash Season 2 have spent plenty of time laying groundwork for 2016's Legends of Tomorrow, and all that effort may finally pay off by the upcoming December crossover. Meet Vandal Savage, as The CW unleashes its full synopses for both hours of either series, including The Flash’s “Legends of Today” and Arrow’s “Legends of Yesterday”!
