Zack Snyder caught a lot of grief from some Superman fans who complained that his version of Man of Steel wasn’t true to the character. Specifically the wanton destruction of Metropolis and, oh yeah, snapping General Zod’s neck. Classically Superman...
After a season’s worth of Supergirl awkwardly cutting around any actual Superman appearances on the small screen, Kal-El will finally come forth in this coming Monday’s Alan Moore-inspired “For the Girl Who Has Everything.” Well, we’ll meet him as a child. On Krypton. In a dream. Anyway, here’s some photos!
The moment Supergirl was announced to cast a young Kal-El, we knew some explanation was required. All was soon revealed that Alan Moore’s iconic “For the Man Who Has Everything” story would spawn an upcoming Supergirl of the same premise, sending Kara back to a normal life on Krypton, as seen in the first official photos.
CBS’ Supergirl has understandably kept its distance from an actual Superman appearance, both for in-story purposes and the character’s cinematic exploits, but would a familiar face help? Smallville star Tom Welling never technically got a chance to don the famous cape, and answers if he’d be open to stepping in as Supergirl’s Man of Steel.
I honestly cannot believe they’re pronouncing that title “Batman Vee Superman.” When they announced that DC’s mega-hero tussle would be called Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I assumed it was just quirky branding, and I haven’t met a single person who didn’t call it “Batman Versus Superman” in casual conversation.
Supergirl has made some … Kryptic casting choices of late, between putting the word out on a young Kal-El that wouldn’t jive with Kara’s age, or a Bizarro (without specifying which), but at last, we have answers from on high. Find out what Alan Moore twist brings Kara and a young Superman together, as well as our first details (and photos) of Kara’s Bizarro!
CBS’ Supergirl left us off in 2015 with a literal cliffhanger (well, discounting gravity and all), as Kara prepared to take on Kryptonian supervillain Non. A new trailer for the DC hero’s 2016 return teases not only the skyward square-off, but the arrival of a true Toyman, and Kara uncovering a certain Martian Manhunting secret.
Supergirl hasn’t suffered a lack of recognizable DC characters, occasionally borrowing a few faces from her famous cousin’s world to trade blows across National City. Now, Kara Zor-El will come face to face with a bit of both, going up against a Bizarro superhero of her very own.
It’s always darkest before the dawn. Or, in this case, a Zack Snyder superhero movie.
The brand new Batman vs. Superman trailer debuted late last night, and if you haven’t watched it already, you can watch it above right now. If you have watched it already…well, feel free to watch it again. And then join us as we break down the trailer to see what secrets are stored inside.
