It’s been a good while since we’ve heard from CBS’ forthcoming Supergirl series, but with TV’s dreaded Upfronts arriving next week (we’ve already got scotch handy), one of the season’s more obvious picks has officially taken flight. Kara of Krypton will officially come to CBS this fall with a Supergirl series order.

The comic book movie craze may have exploded in recent years, but there have been movies and TV shows based on our favorite comics for decades. For all the action we see on screen, however, we hardly...
ScreenCrush editor, comic-book lover, and undiagnosed masochist Matt Singer is systematically watching every single (American) comic-book movie ever made in the order in which they were released. This week in The Complete History of Comic-Book Movies: Superman returns (but not Superman Returns).
Current Superman and Man of Steel star Henry Cavill was officially cast in the role in January of 2011. But, seven years earlier Cavill was also cast as Kal-El in a different Superman project. That film, which was written by J.J. Abrams and would've been directed by McG, was eventually canceled and Cavill never shot a frame of Superman. Until many years later when he was called back for a new Superman reboot and given the job. This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which follows the last son of Krypton in Man of Steel!
Earlier today we learned that the next trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will make its debut at the upcoming Star Wars Celebration in California. But that’s not the only major film we’re interested in — unless you went to Comic-Con last year, you didn’t get to see the teaser for Batman vs. Superman, and you’ve been anxiously awaiting your first look at the feuding heroes in action.

But there was a time, not that long ago, when that concept didn’t even exist, and toys based on movies were barely an idea, much less a guarantee.

CBS’ Supergirl got some unexpected lift with the casting of former Super-stars Dean Cain and Helen Slater, though the latest addition bring us back to Earth for another check off the main cast. Smash star Jeremy Jordan will join Kara Zor-El as Winslow Schott, better known as DC Superman antagonist The Toyman.
Super, if not-particularly surprising news, everyone! CBS forthcoming Supergirl series has followed The Flash’s lead in returning past franchise stars to the new edition, recruiting Lois & Clark star Dean Cain and original cinematic Supergirl Helen Slater for “top-secret” roles. Might the former Superman and Supergirl’s characters be so easy to identify in CBS’ rendition, however?
The other night brought word that CBS’ forthcoming Supergirl series might potentially feature the Man of Steel in an able-bodied cameo, but who’s ready for some actual names and faces? Not Another Teen Movie star Chyler Leigh has nabbed the role of Kara’s sister “Alex,” while Homeland alum David Harewood may one day gear up as Cyborg Superman.
