That simple two-word exchange between Barry Allen and Oliver Queen sums up the joys of the pilot episode of 'The Flash.' The second straight DC Comics adaptation by The CW, the new series gets so many things right that it puts other small-screen comic yarns to shame. What truly makes this pilot episode stand out from the myriad of comic book-inspired television shows lies in its light touch. That’s not to say that 'The Flash' is a frivolous show by any metric. But the show realizes there’s more than one way to tell a superhero story, and that dour realism only takes you so far in the world of the fantastical.
CW's 'The Flash' spinoff is only hours away from racing out its series premiere installment, but it seems the speedy character's DC nemesis might have beaten him to the punch. Our first look at 'Prison Break' alum Wentworth Miller in costume as Leonard Snart / Captain Cold has arrived, looking ready to freeze 'The Flash' in his tracks over the coming weeks.
There's been a lot of speculation about whether fans would actually get to see 'Iron Man 4' hit the big screen, and Robert Downey Jr. has been nothing but vague in his answers. After recent statements from him jokingly saying he'd only do it if Mel Gibson came on to direct, the actor went on 'Ellen' with another non-answer.
Just yesterday, we heard the very sad and strange tale of acrimony that currently exists between Marvel and Fox, the studio that owns the 'X-Men' and 'Fantastic Four' movie rights. It will very likely be a cold day in hell by the time we ever see the likes of Iron Man and Wolverine pair up on the big screen (regardless of what Hugh Jackman says), but is it possible that The Avengers could actually be crossing over with another superhero from another universe? Namely, The Amazing Spider-Man?
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ detects its second installment in “The Balloonman,” as Gordon and Bullock pursue a vigilante killing corrupt city officials via weather balloon, while Oswald Cobblepot returns to the city, and word of his supposed demise puts Gordon's career at risk.
The superhero TV boom took off even more than expected in recent months, adding 'Supergirl' and 'Titans' series to the existing pantheon of 'Arrow,' 'The Flash,' 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' 'Daredevil,' 'Gotham' and 'Constantine,' and another major team may be joining the ranks. A new rumor suggests that the 'X-Men' universe will develop its own live-action TV series, but how might it fit into the franchise with 'Apocalypse' on the way?
The rumors began earlier this past summer: was Marvel declaring war on the 'Fantastic Four' movie? The upcoming reboot - directed by Josh Trank and starring Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell - is set up at Fox, not Marvel, and apparently the negotiations between the sides soured to such a level, that Marvel is refusing to do any promotion, even second-hand, of the upcoming reboot.

Recently we heard the 'Avengers 3' rumor that the final movie of the current Marvel Cinematic Universe may be split into two films. The word was that was unlikely to happen though, because of expiring contracts for actors like Robert Downey, Jr. and Chris Evans that would be too costly to renew. It looks though that Marvel may have found a clever way around that plan. A completely different superhero lineup for 'Avengers 3'.
'Arrow' season 3 has made much of the new day in Starling City to come with Wednesday's "The Calm," but for as much of a bright future Oliver Queen has on the horizon, darkness always finds a way to creep back in. Enter our second clip from 'Arrow''s season 3 premiere, as Oliver takes on the "new" Count Vertigo (Peter Stormare), and winds up fighting a much deadlier enemy: himself.
