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?

We are very happy to present two exclusive images from the superhero dramedy I Was A Teenage Superhero Sidekick from writer/director J Hanna. The movie focuses on Larry (Barrett Mitchell), the once heroic Kid Dynamic- sidekick for the mighty Dynamic Man, as he adjusts to live outside of the superhero business. From the official description we can tell that things are not going very well.

Kid Dynamic, sidekick to Dynamic Man, quits the whole superhero racket and struggles with the transition…with finding himself. His hippy-dippy headshrinker, who insists on outdoor yoga classes during psychoanalysis, helps him find the courage to go for the simpler life he yearns for. What he comes to understand is that life isn’t so simple, with or without the cape.

The first still image features Barrett Mitchell as the former Kid Dynamic as he deals with some of his “issues”.

This second still image gives us a look at other heroes that populate the world of I Was a Teenage Superhero Sidekick, with art by Vanessa SinYing Fung.

You can find more information on the movie over on it’s official Facebook page and can get even more details on the movie, it’s cast and crew over on IMDB. The movie stars Barrett Mitchell, Emily Sandifer, Milena Mortati, Andre Antwan, Rashawn E. Vaughn, Eryn Joslyn, and Bill Ferris as Dynamic Man, and was produced by J Hanna and Kathy McCurdy.

Mr Peabody and Sherman

This year, we get the chance to watch one of the funniest animations ever. From the director of the absolutely amazing The Lion King, the new comedy Mr Peabody and Sherman is going to make us laugh like no other animated film did.

Mr. Peabody is a dog father, who besides parenting his little adopted son, has to do a bunch of other things. Being the most extraordinary dog of the planet, Peabody creates an awesome time machine. He names it WABAC and together with his little son, they get involved in different adventures related to the history of our world. Starting with the history of art and ending up with the fearless stories about the courageous Trojans, this movie brings it all out.

Sherman is the little restless kid, who is going to make us laugh really hard. His feelings for a cute classmate named Penny Peterson will make him reveal the secret of the WABAC machine. Together with Penny, they will travel in time and there is going to happen something that’s totally wrong and not okay. So now, the amazing dog father will travel back in time, in order to repair the damages that were done to the past. Saving the future will be his main goal and of course, he will achieve it.

Next to the amazing narration of our history, we get to see so much fun stuff going on. There is ridiculous stuff going on in the Ancient Egypt and there is so much fun during the creation of Giaconda, by Leonardo Da Vinci. Mr. Peabody may be the one who made Mona Lisa smile. Imagine how he can make us laugh. This is why Mr. Peabody & Sherman is proclaimed by many critics “The Dog Father of all Comedies”.

 In March, we have the opportunity to witness the incredible adventures of Mr. Peabody. Do not miss the chance of learning the history in the funniest possible way. You will simply fall in love with these cute characters and their stories. Meet the extraordinary dog – watch the father of all the comedies Mr. Peabody & Sherman.
