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.
Everything we’ve heard about CBS’ forthcoming Supergirl series suggests that the Man of Steel himself would play a subdued, cursory role, Kara’s supporting cast even pilfering a few names from Superman lore. Now, the CBS super-drama confirms its intent to feature Superman in the pilot episode, or at least a Super-looking man.
I think we can all agree that if there's one problem with Superman, it's that he doesn't have enough powers. Now, at long last, this glaring oversight is about to be remedied. In this week's...
The moment CBS found their ‘Supergirl’ in ‘Glee’ star Melissa Benoist, we knew the DC drama would cast faster than a speeding bullet. Enter our new Jimmy Olsen for the super-series, courtesy of ‘True Blood’ and ‘Necessary Roughness’ star Mehcad Brooks!
CBS ‘Supergirl’ recently revealed a more procedural format that had many fans worried about the series, but the casting of Kara Zor-El should leave all positively ‘Glee’-ful. Melissa Benoist will don a cape and tights for the title role in CBS’ ‘Supergirl’ series, chronicling the adventures of Superman’s cousin.
At the start of the weekend, rumors began swirling that ‘Batman v Superman’* would be split into two parts, thanks to the circulation of a supposedly leaked screenshot teasing two different installments. It was difficult to read the official URL at the bottom of that screenshot, which many journalists were quick to point out was likely an unofficial, fan-created site. And now Superman himself, Henry Cavill, is officially debunking the rumors, confirming that the film will definitely not be split into two parts—so you can all stop being cranky about it.
If you can’t wait for Zack Snyder’s ‘Batman vs. Superman,’ this awesome new fan-made short film should satisfy your curiosity. Created with LEGOs, this new short is expertly made and features a pretty clever ending. If you want to know who would win in a fight between the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel, we now have an answer … sort of.
When Warner Bros. announced their big slate of upcoming DC superhero films a few months ago, we all pretty much assumed that these movies and characters would operate in a shared universe. Given the ‘Justice League’ connection, how could they not? What we haven’t been clear on is whether some of the other DC heroes, like Shazam and Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Dark Universe’ characters, would also inhabit the same universe. As if sensing the little question marks over our heads, DC Comics has confirmed what we all assumed: Yes, their WB superhero movies will operate in a shared universe.
One of the chief criticisms of ‘Man of Steel’ was the way that Superman dealt with his epic battles—primarily, that he wasn’t concerned enough about ensuring the safety of the citizens of Metropolis, and how he recklessly used the entire city as his battleground. Thanks to the outspoken dissatisfaction with the film’s climax, it seems as though the script for ‘Batman vs. Superman’ will address those complaints and try to make Superman a more likable and cautious hero.
