Good news: fans are finally getting their shot to lay claim to two highly sought-after pieces of comic book memorabilia, with George Reeves’ original Superman costume and the Batsuit worn by Michael Keaton during his stint as the Batman both up at auction until January 26. The bad news: you’re going to have to part with at least tens of thousands of dollars if you want to get your mitts on that spandex.
Supergirl had its fun introducing an actual Superman early into Season 2, though it stood to reason Tyler Hoechlin wouldn’t be sticking around forever. Naturally, fans would love to see the brighter, cheerier take on the Man of Steel again, to which CW head Mark Pedowitz updates on the possibility of a return, or perhaps even a spinoff.
For gentiles far and wide, yesterday was a day of rest and relaxation; Henry Cavill spent it making headlines. Today brings a twofer of Super-news in the post-Christmas lull:
Now that the four-way crossover between Supergirl, Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow has come to an invasive close, the hunt begins for DC references and easter eggs! One moment in particular saw Brandon Routh referencing his own Superman Returns past, but don’t expect Supergirl to be let in on the joke just yet.
We’ve already seen one look at the new Justice League Action in … well, action, so when can we expect the official debut? As early as December, now that Cartoon Network confirms a four-part series premiere along with a brand-new clip featuring Superman and Wonder Woman.
A bonafide TV Batman may have become the holy grail for DC fans, between the Arrow-verse tiptoeing around direct reference to the Dark Knight, or Gotham languishing in its inability to wait for Bruce Wayne’s future. Supergirl even made our first direct reference to Gotham City, and may now have hinted at Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman working with a troubled, technologically skilled vigilante.
Supergirl set off something of a mini-mystery with news that Cyborg Superman would appear in next week’s “The Darkest Place,” forcing producers to clarify that Tyler Hoechlin wouldn’t be returning just yet. A number of probable candidates could possibly fill the cyborg boots, but our first trailer for “The Darkest Place” may have revealed an unexpectedly obvious solution.
Just when DC had us distracted with one shiny animation return, so too is the Justice League ready to grace our screens again in animated form. See for yourself in new clips from the forthcoming Justice League Action, including musical moments, alien worlds and a little Bat-time travel.
Supergirl snuck in a surprise announcement with the recent press release confirming the debut of DC villain “Cyborg Superman,” though the text was less than clear on who might be underneath (or woven around) said tech. We’ve had some theories, but if anyone was expecting a certain Super face from the past, we can apparently rule that one out.
The first season of Supergirl cleverly side-stepped the comic alter-ego of David Harewood’s Hank Henshaw to make the identity a cover for Martian Manhunter, but the real Cyborg Superman may arrive in a roundabout way. A new synopsis for “The Darkest Place” reveals the steely Superman’s debut, but who’s behind all the gear?
