Supergirl

Supergirl moves to The CW this fall but it was business as usual for the show at Comic-Con. The cast and producers gave a panel along with the other DC Comics shows Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow, and we spoke with producer Sarah Schechter in a roundtable interview. After keeping Superman mostly off screen in season one, they have cast Tyler Hoechlin as Kal-El/Clark Kent. Schechter described his role on Supergirl and the interpretation of his iconic look we will see.

“Part of it was in season one we wanted to really just establish Kara,” Schechter said. “A lot of what we do on these shows is comedy, action, drama and family. It’s the family you’re given, it’s the family you choose. Kara had to really choose a family and build a family here. Clark is the one part of her family that’s still alive, now that Laura Benanti is playing Melania Trump. It’s a way to learn more about Kara. Tyler is amazing. I’ve seen him in the suit and it’s very cool. You see it and you’re like oh, Greg Berlanti and I went to a costume fitting the other day and we were a little speechless. It’s our costume designer who came up under Colleen [Atwood] but it’s working off of Colleen’s design for the Supergirl suit.”  Read More »

Frequency gender swap

Frequency was a modestly successful movie in 2000. Jim Caviezel played a cop whose ham radio allowed him to talk with his father 30 years earlier. Now The CW has turned Frequency into a TV show and there are a few differences. Peyton List plays the cop, making it a father/daughter relationship. And now that she’s in the present day, the past is 1996, not 1970. We spoke with producer Jeremy Carver about the adaptation in a roundtable at San Diego Comic-Con, where Frequency had a panel.

Like the movie, Raimy Sullivan (List) prevents her father’s death, but since her mother was not attending the funeral, she became a victim of the Nightingale Killer preying on nurses. Carver said the Nightingale Killer mystery is only the beginning of the show.  Read More »

Jessica Chastain The Division

Last month, Jake Gyllenhaal signed on for an adaptation of the Ubisoft video game The Division, despite the fact that his last attempt to bring a video game to the big screen didn’t go very well. But hey, he could have better luck this time. Especially now that he’s got a very capable co-star to help him out. Jessica Chastain is reportedly looking to join Gyllenhaal in the movie, which he is also producing with Ubisoft Motion Pictures’ Gerard GuillemotRead More »

Rick and Morty Georgia Court

If you’ve watched an episode of Rick and Morty, then you know there are some positively insane things in the Adult Swim animated series. From weird aliens to intergalactic television to Mr. Poopybutthole, there’s always something totally strange in each and every episode. However, during a panel at Comic-Con, creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland delivered a video so totally weird you won’t believe the dialogue was lifted from a real life court case in Georgia.
