By now, a good chunk of Supergirl fans have had an opportunity to check out the pilot, though those hungry for new DC details needn’t wait until the October premiere. In addition to a new trailer, CBS’ new series drops intel on possible Arrow and Flash crossovers, an appearance from the big man himself, along with DC figures like Red Tornado, Non and more.

No one doubted that Stephen Colbert would put in an appearance on his former Daily Show host’s final hour, but thankfully the future Late Show leader didn’t party too hard afterward. Early Friday, Colbert announced his first Late Show guest for September, none other than the handsomest of handsome, George Clooney.
Just when we thought we’d had our fill of changes to the late-night landscape by Jon Stewart’s final week, in comes Stephen Colbert to remind us of the new Late Show era. So, what can we expect from the former Colbert Report-er? Puppies, card tricks, and even Mitt Romney!
Its pilot already more or less out there, Supergirl seems to be establishing a campier comic presence than either its Arrow or Flash predecessors on The CW, understandable with a character as lighthearted and positive as Kara. Cue the DC-iest DC-named DC villain of all, as Supergirl will take on Chris Browning’s armored “Reactron.”
Like The Flash before it, an early leak of Supergirl’s pilot has made new footage and details hard to come by in the months before its October premiere. Now that production has begun beyond the pilot however, CBS teases the future of Supergirl with a new behind-the-scenes look at an impressive visual sequence from episode two.
CBS’ summer series have only grown increasingly (and unintentionally) hilarious in recent years, and 2016 may finally see the network embrace the trend. Next in the queue is, and we are in no way joking, an hour-long thriller of a Capitol Hill staffer discovering that aliens have eaten the brains of Congress. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you BrainDead.
Those who were fortunate enough to catch the full Supergirl pilot at Comic-Con 2015 (or online anywhere over the past few months) know that the CBS super-drama plays coy with appearances from Superman himself, but even more of the extended family may show up. A new report suggests that Lois Lane’s sister will cause a few headaches for Supergirl, with a surprising connection to one of the main cast.
Supergirl may have debuted to less fanfare than her Comic-Con 2015 brethren, but Kara Zor-El has a world of work ahead of her October premiere. Not only has Twilight alum Peter Facinelli been cast in the role of DC villain Maxwell Lord, but so too will Supergirl find herself contending with the likes of Livewire and Reactron when new series premieres.
It can be difficult to wrap your mind around Limitless, a movie that semi-rebooted itself to TV, keeping the same general continuity while still having nothing “Comic-Con” about it, but a dose of NZT will make everything clear. Find out what CBS’ forthcoming Limitless TV series revealed from Comic-Con, and what we’ll see from the series this fall!
CBS’ Supergirl will be flying into Comic-Con 2015 in a matter of hours, and the eye has spared no expense building buzz for its first formal superhero in decades. Watch Kara go all out to save the people of her city with a new action-packed promo for Supergirl!
