We did it, everyone! First 'Smallville' took us back to a teenage Clark Kent's evolution into the Man of Steel, then 'Gotham' explored the origin's origins of a prepubescent Batman. Now, Syfy is officially upping the ante with writer David Goyer to create a 'Krypton' TV series, exploring the origin's origin's origin of Superman's grandpappy!

Marvel's upcoming 'Agent Carter' spinoff may have a harder time tying into the cinematic universe than its contemporary TV peer 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' but the new 1940s-set serial will have the blessing of its franchise's godfather all the same. Stan Lee has confirmed himself for a cameo in Marvel's upcoming 'Agent Carter' TV series, which has an even newer trailer to boot.
This is a fun little video curio to brighten your Monday. Tucked away in a random corner of YouTube for the last five years has been a clip titled ‘Paramount Today ... Where the Future Goes On.’ The description says it’s presumably something that was made by the studio “for Hollywood insiders [and] investors,” and it details the company’s upcoming slate for 1985 and the rest of the decade. And it’s a very entertaining, behind-the-scenes look at the movie hype machine some 30 years ago.
Set in St. Louis, the sketch starts with Beck Bennett as a news anchor for “News 4” (which is the CBS affiliate in St. Louis) relaying a serious presentation of current events, right before he hands it off to two morning show hosts (played by Kenan Thompson and Cecily Strong) who have an obnoxious show with an obnoxious theme song called ‘Rise and Smile.’ First, there’s no way this sketch should have been cut, but that’s a pretty obvious position to take.
‘Star Wars’ icon Mark Hamill will soon reprise one of his most legendary roles, and we’re not talking about Luke Skywalker. The ‘Force Awakens’ star will return to different roots for The CW’s ‘The Flash’ in an upcoming episode, reprising his role from the 1990's CBS series as DC villain The Trickster, but with a tricky twist!
Like ‘Game of Thrones’ before it, HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ has proven an intriguing concept to develop, given the events of season 1 largely covered literary author Tom Perotta’s entire novel’s worth of story. Now, with season 2 set to commence in the immediate future, HBO’s Damon Lindelof rapture drama has not only trimmed its core cast, but potentially shifted ‘The Leftovers’ outside its fictional upstate New York setting.
In many ways, NBC’s much-mocked ‘Peter Pan Live’ was already a parody of itself the moment it was conceived, making the thought of an ‘SNL’ riff feel completely and totally unnecessary. And yet the show’s take on the production has just enough good stuff to be worthy of your time, especially if the thought of guest host James Franco playing Christopher Walken playing Captain Hook sounds appealing to you.
‘SNL’ was off the week that the first ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ trailer broke the internet with its record-breaking release. However, like any comedy variety show worth its salt, it didn’t miss a beat when it returned this week, crafting a parody trailer that’s as hilariously mean-spirited as it is funny.
Since James Franco was around to host this week’s ‘SNL’ as part of promoting his upcoming comedy ‘The Interview,’ it was inevitable that his frequent collaborator and co-star and director, Seth Rogen, would pop in to say hello. And they couldn’t have picked a better way to bring him into things. Since ‘The Interview’ is causing all kinds of real-world mayhem, they did what any self-respecting funny people would do: they made fun of it.
'Arrow' and 'The Flash' got their epic crossover out of the way just in time to confront their biggest bads in next week's midseason finales, as Barry goes up against "The Man in the Yellow Suit," and Oliver makes "The Climb" to confront Ra's al Ghul. Now, The CW has released full-length trailers for both finales, expanding 'The Flash' finale's runtime as well!
