You can check out the teaser trailer here. Directed by Joss Whedon, the action sequel teams up the original Avengers with a crop of new heroes from other Marvel solo movies (the Falcone from Captain America: Winter Soldier, War Machine from Ironman 2 & 3) to take on a much worse evil entity (the title character Ultron). The movie will star Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Cobie Smulders, and Paul Bettany, with newcomers to the Marvel Universe Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Andy Serkis, and James Spader as Ultron.  We have a long wait as it does not come out until May 1, 2015.

Z Nation

The Dead Are Rising has a full write up on all of the sci-fi, supernatural, and horror related shows this week. Included in the mix are new episodes of Witches of the East End, The Strain, Sleepy Hollow, Twisted, Haven, Z Nation (pictured above), and Ghost Adventures.

On Z Nation; The survivors make their way through the mean streets of Philadelphia, where they cross paths with a group of psychotic outlaws with ties to one of their own. Click here to check out the rundown.

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?
