Andrew Kreisberg Suspended

The nightmare that is Hollywood’s epidemic of sexual harassment continues with another series of accusations surfacing in the world of comic book television.

Andrew Kreisberg, the executive producer of the Arrowverse television programs Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, has been suspended after the Warner Bros. Television Group learned of several allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct brought to light by 15 women and four men who have worked with him.

Veronica Mars

Veronica Mars, the cult teen mystery series that ran for 3 seasons on UPN and the CW and inspired a follow-up film, may not be over and done with yet. In a recent chat, stars Kristen Bell and Ryan Hansen both confirmed they’re definitely down for even more Mars, and are willing to make it happen, no matter what.

roswell reboot

Things are getting paranormal again at Roswell High. The cult teen TV show from 1999 will be getting a modern reboot at The CW, with an even more timely twist.

This time, instead of following a group of gorgeous and talented — but blindingly white — high school students in the infamous town of Roswell, New Mexico, the Roswell reboot will be given an immigration perspective.

Constantine trailer

Earlier this year, we learned that John Constantine, the demon hunting comic book character who’s already been the subject of a movie and a short-lived live-action TV series, was going to get yet another show of his own – this time in animated form through The CW’s digital offshoot, CW Seed.

The first footage debuted at New York Comic Con, and it looks like they aren’t messing around: it’s full of bloody demons being ripped limb from limb and roasted alive. There’s even (gasp!) some cursing thrown in as well. Watch the new Constantine trailer below.

crazy ex girlfriend season 3 trailer

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is back, and it’s putting the ex in “extreme.”

The CW’s subversive romantic-comedy musical series is returning for a third season with a darker edge — literally. Our slightly unhinged heroine, Rebecca Bunch (played by series creator and writer Rachel Bloom) is now completely off the rails after being left at the altar by the man of her dreams, Josh Chan (Vincent Rodriguez III), and has returned with darker locks and vengeance on her mind.

Crisis on Earth-X

With Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow all situated at The CW, it’s now customary to have all of the superheroes check into each others’ shows for a major crossover event. Last season was the first time Supergirl was brought into the mix, and this season, we’ll see new iterations of the DC Comics superheroes getting in on the action, this time as super-powered villains.

The CW and Warner Bros. Television have announced this season’s four-part crossover will be titled Crisis on Earth-X, and they’ve even commissioned legendary comic artist Phil Jimenez (Infinite Crisis) to create a comic book cover teasing the epic TV event coming this November. Find out details on the Crisis on Earth-X crossover below. Read More »

titans tv show dick grayson casting

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything. In this edition: the Titans TV series casting of Brenton Thwaites goes against the character of Dick Grayson.)

First things first, Dick Grayson is my favorite DC Comics character. So I may be a little protective of the former Robin as he makes his move to the live action realm, subjecting him to the limits of reality.

And I realize there will be limits to how the actor playing him will fulfill my expectations of Dick Grayson: as a hero with a diverse background and a sex symbol who eschews the hypermasculine stylings of most DC Comics superheroes. You may scoff, but that is what the Robin-turned-Nightwing hero has been known to be in the comics and his animated iterations. And this is why Brenton Thwaites — who joins the long line of generic, charmless actors who Hollywood keeps trying to push on audiences as our “next big movie star” — is so wrong for the job of bringing Dick Grayson to life in the Titans live-action TV series.

Riverdale season 2 teaser

Two seasons of Riverdale in a single year is a kind gift from The CW. The series, based on the famous Archie comics, quickly found its groove in season one and kept getting better and better. The finale ended season one on a high note with a few surprises and shocks tying up loose ends and setting up storylines for season two – which looks like it’s going to get a little darker. As one critic says in the new teaser for Riverdale, it’s an “invitingly dark” series. It can get bleak, but rarely dark enough to lessen the fun. It’s a balance well struck in the first season of the series, and the Riverdale season 2 teaser promises more of the same.

Smallville superman costume

Tom Welling played Clark Kent for a decade on Smallville. It sounds like a great job, but only once did he actually get to suit up as the Man of Steel. Fans of the series didn’t even get to see him wear the entire suit. In the finale, Kent ripped open his shirt, the House of El insignia shined bright, and he took flight to start saving the day.

There’s a reason why we never saw Welling flying around Metropolis wearing a cape. Below, Welling explains why they decided against a finale showing him in action as the Man of Steel.
