Supergirl Getting a New TV Series

Comic book characters really are taking over television! We already have confirmation (and footage from many) of new series, including Batman spinoff Gotham, The Flash, iZombie, & Constantine are set from DC Comics, while Marvel is giving us Agent Carter, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, & Powers. The newest character to possibly add into the TV mix? Supergirl.

This would not be Supergirl’s first foray into live action as she was a recurring character on Smallville, and of course had her own movie spinoff from the Christopher Reeves Superman series (even thought she never shared scenes with Superman himself, at least she met Jimmy Olsen!).

Supergirl is one of DC’s iconic female heroes and I’m glad to hear that she has a project in the works. I just don’t get how they will have a series focusing on her without Superman. Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment have been very clear that their television shows and movies are not crossing over- and some of their shows are crossing over (The Flash and Arrow), while others are completely disconnected (iZombie and Constantine). Will this show spinoff or tie into any of DC’s established universes? Its hard not to be confused by the “Cinematic DC Comics Universe”. I wish they could make it clear and simple as Marvel Comics have. Maybe during Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice we’ll get a look at a multiverse that includes every incarnation of live action DC characters ever (that would be awesome and validate everyone’s favorite version of the characters). We can only hope DC will do something to make it all clear.

Now, on to Supergirl. Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler will be working with Geoff Johns on the series. Johns, of course, produces Arrow and The Flash, and has a hand in writing/executive producing upcoming DC movies (BvS and also including The Flash). Berlanti also executive produces Arrow/The Flash and had tried his hand at a live action superhero series with No Ordinary Family (which was sadly too “ordinary”). Nothing has been revealed about the story or which version of Supergirl they will follow, but they have a ton of options. We’ll take a look at some of these options in a follow up article. Stay turned!

Excited for another comic book character to show up on TV? Do you hope it spins out of The Flash or Arrow or would you prefer it to stand on its own?

Action Comics Future End 1

You can’t tell from the above image, but this issue (along with so many others) has a 3D motion cover. The image changes from the left graphic to the right one, etc. It brings me right back to the gimmick covers of the 90s. Anyhow, just in time for September’s third anniversary of DC Comic’s “The New 52″ relaunch comes a universe wide tie in to DC’s event series “Futures End”. The series has spotlighted what “The New 52″ universe looks like 5 years into the future after a multiverse war has changed the status quo big time.

Action Comics: Futures End #1
Official Description: With the Man of Steel missing, ordinary people around the world start to mysteriously exhibit his strengths and abilities…

The issue comes from DC Comics on September 3rd, 2014 with the cover by Lee Weeks, art by Pascal Alixe, and writing by Sholly Fisch.

Have you been following the weekly “Futures End” series? Excited to see spotlight stories set in the bleak future across titles?

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman Revealed
Sure, Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment released some Dark Knight Returns inspired footage for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, but that was slightly overshadowed by the reveal of the movie’s Wonder Woman. Until now it was unknown if Gal Gadot would even don a costume, but here she is in a darkened version of her classic suit. The amazon warrior looks very similar to another warrior princess, but personally I don’t have any issue with that. Hopefully the outfit will get some classic red and blue before the trinity of heroes team up in Justice League.

Josh Brolin as Thanos

Josh Brolin is Thanos
The Marvel Studios panel had almost everyone from Avengers: Age of Ultron in attendance, including Robert Downey, Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Cobie Smulders, Samuel L Jackson, and James Spader, but joining the panel was someone unexpected; Josh Brolin who will be stepping into the boots of Marvel’s cosmic big bad Thanos. He jumped on the stage wearing the Infinity Gauntlet, ate a rose that Robert Downey Jr gave him, and showed that he will be a force to be reckoned with… eventually.

Ash in an Evil Dead Series

Evil Dead: The Series
Talk about unexpected. There was nt an Evil Dead screening or anniversary panel or anything like that. Instead, during the Screen Gems panel Sam Raimi, there to talk about The Last of Us, dropped a bomb on the audience; he is developing Evil Dead as a TV series with Bruce “Ash” Campbell and Ivan Raimi. Campbell followed up the announcement with the reveal that if it happens, he will star in the series. The team is no stranger to TV, having worked on shows such as Jack of All Trades and Xena: Warrior Princess together, and each having a hand in many other shows. God, I hope this happens.

The Walking Dead Trailer

The Walking Dead Season 5 Trailer
Not many TV shows get presented in Hall H, but The Walking Dead is a show that has earned its place in the large ballroom. AMC aimed to please the crowd and showed a lengthy (and spoiler filled) trailer for the new season. There is so much packed into this trailer (you can watch it here); what secrets do Terminus hold? How will our survivors get out? What new characters were revealed? Where is Beth? I’m not posting the spoilers here, but the release of this trailer alone makes the San Diego Comic Con worth it.

What piece of news from the 2014 San Diego Comic Con excites you the most? Which of these 4 awesome things is your favorite?
