CBS Supergirl arrived to the world in a first trailer from the Upfront presentations yesterday, though fans were quick to note the omniprescence of romantic comedy schtick recently skewered by SNL with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow. Second time’s the charm it seems, as the latest, shorter Supergirl trailer drops the romance in favor of action, bringing out some famous Kryptonian abilities to do it.

NBC’s cancellation of Constantine set off the familiar scramble to find the series a new home, though showrunner Daniel Cerone seemed optimistic The CW might look to add to its growing DC stable, with whom crossover talks have already occurred. Not so it seems, as The CW may not be Constantine’s salvation after all.
Both Arrow and The Flash will marvel at their own magnificence in giving birth to the time-traveling Legends of Tomorrow spinoff, and while the DC drama has plenty of mysteries to unpack, we’re crossing two off the list. Not only do we at last know who Caity Lotz is playing by the show’s first photo, but so too has The CW specified when the Legends of Tomorrow will premiere. No, it’s not tomorrow.
Captain America: Civil War has been filming on the streets of Atlanta this month with nothing too exciting to report so far from the star-studded cast. That’s about to change as reports have come in that yesterday’s scenes include a major funeral set at a downtown church. So, which Marvel character is about to bite the big one?
All season long, Arrow has steadily dismantled its core characters and story conventions to allow Oliver to ascend to the throne of Ra's al Ghul, and tonight's Season 3 finale "My Name is Oliver Queen" took things way, way further. Not only is the Arrow officially no more, but several others fell, and two characters may never return to Starling City. You know, until Season 4.
Earlier today, we learned about a surprise X-Men: New Mutants spinoff to be written and directed by Josh Boone (so The Stand probably isn’t happening anymore, right?), but before we get that far, we still have X-Men: Apocalypse, the final chapter in Bryan Singer’s X-Men saga. Today, the director has teased a mysterious new photo from the set of the film with a rather cautionary caption.
CBS' Supergirl will officially take her Kryptonian place on the lineup Mondays this fall, but why wait for an early look at Superman's cousin? The first trailer for Supergirl has at last arrived, bringing with it plenty of super-surprises and DC alien action.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. truly deserves a hand for its Season 2 finale “S.O.S.,” but Coulson’s work is far from finished with Season 3 fast approaching in the fall. To wit, producers have confirmed a major Secret Warriors nod from last night’s installment, which may already set up Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s season 3 tie-in to the MCU.
With the current X-Men movie universe reportedly winding down after the now-filming X-Men: Apocalypse, Fox needed to find a way to keep their Marvel superhero franchise alive. Instead of another reboot, they’ve instead focused on something different...
The new Ant-Man TV spot isn’t going to change the minds of those not already initiated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe cult, but it's going to remind everyone that Peyton Reed’s superhero heist movie looks like a lot more fun than its troubled production would suggest. Everything that makes Marvel Studios what it is is crammed into these 60 seconds: stylish action, attractive leading men and ladies, a big name actor classing up the joint, and a just-goofy-enough sense of humor.
