Given the franchise’s tragic history (including original star Brandon Lee’s on-set death during the film of the original film), you have to wonder if ‘The Crow’ is cursed. Just hours after the reboot of the franchise lost yet another director (J. Javier Gutierrez, following in the footsteps of Juan Carlos Fresnadillo) and gained another (Corin Hardy) comes word that the new star of the franchise, Luke Evans might be taking his leave of the supernatural, super goth-y superhero franchise as well.

‘The Flash’'s quick thinking may have saved the day in last night’s ‘Arrow’ crossover conclusion “The Brave and the Bold,” but Barry Allen will need more than wits or speed to Reverse the threat of “The Man in the Yellow Suit.” Check out the first official look at Reverse Flash in a new midseason finale trailer for next week’s final ‘Flash’ installment of 2014!
‘Arrow’ season 3 lets loose its eighth installment of the year with “The Brave and the Bold,” as ‘The Flash’ comes to town to aid Oliver in pursuit of a boomerang-throwing killer, only to find the spree has deeper ties to A.R.G.U.S. and Diggle’s wife Lyla.
The shared universe concept is wildly popular right now, thanks in large part to Marvel’s success with their cinematic universe. DC and Warner Bros. are trying to catch up, having announced a full schedule of comic book films through 2020 and taking a very similar approach (while basically viewing the TV counterparts of their big screen superheroes as separate, alternate entities). Guillermo del Toro recently completed work on his script for the ‘Justice League Dark’ film, which we assumed would function separately from the main WB superhero universe, but new comments from the director imply that his film will also be a part of WB’s larger shared universe plans.
Currently mitigating a ‘Flash’ crossover (and soon to deal with Deathstroke’s return), ‘Arrow’ season 3 hasn’t made very much of the appearance of DC baddie Ra’s al Ghul beyond the pursuit of Sara’s killer. That all changes with next week’s midseason finale “The Climb,” the first photos of which show Oliver (shirtlessly, of course) taking on the legendary Batman villain in a snowy duel!
When Edgar Wright left Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’, many wondered if the superhero film would ever happen. Peyton Reed was hired to direct from a retooled script by Adam McKay and the film is still on track for its original release date, so everything worked out OK in the ‘Ant-Man’ world but, it almost didn’t work out that way. Star Evangeline Lilly revealed in a recent interview that when she first heard about Wright’s departure, she was “mortified” and almost quit the film.
The CW’s ‘Arrow’ staged the first half of a major reunion with ‘The Flash’ last night, only to continue tonight with ‘The Brave and the Bold,’ but the DC drama’s next big return may not prove so friendly. Manu Bennett’s Slade Wilson will bring the Deathstroke to ‘Arrow’ season 3, returning in a 2015 episode!
The theory of everything connecting Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ to the ‘Inhumans’ or Marvel’s larger cinematic universe goes back as far as the first season, but with the word “Kree” finally spoken aloud in last night’s “Ye Who Enter Here,” the powers that be may have begun confirming ‘Agents’ allusions to the 2018 film. Enter the latest ‘Inhumans’ comic cover, which seems to feature a very familiar-looking ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ alien writing!
Even though it’s over four months away, we’ve seen a lot from ‘Avengers 2’—there’s the ‘Avengers 2’ trailer, extended trailer, a clip from the film and advance trailer for ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. But, one thing we haven’t really seen in any official capacity, is Paul Bettany as Vision. While we’re still waiting for an official reveal, we do have another, better look at one of the newest Avengers.
Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ assembles its ninth season 2 installment in “Ye Who Enter Here,” as Coulson and the team attempt to reach the mysterious hidden city before Hydra, while Skye attempts to protect Raina from a vengeful Agent 33.
