Be honest: If you had to come up with an identity-concealing costume, your first try (or ten) might not be so hot. So let’s cut John Diggle some slack.
The popular Arrow character was theorized by some at one point to be a possible Green Lantern, but the guy finally got himself a superhero costume for adventures on the show’s fourth season and, well, there’s nothing green about it. In fact, it looks like the businesslike guy turned to some old Marvel comics that were lying around when he needed some inspiration. Figure out what the hell Diggle was thinking when you see the image below. Read More »
Bryan Singer is about to tackle yet another X-Men movie for release in 2016, but after that, he might stay in the world of sci-fi for a different sort of film. 20th Century Fox has just picked up the rights to The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, based on a novel by legendary sci-fi writer Robert A. Heinlein. It’s unclear if Singer would direct or produce but Marc Guggenheim (Green Lantern) is writing the script for the adaptation, which will be retitled Uprising.
The 1966 novel has come close to becoming a movie a few times but rights recently reverted back to Heinlein’s estate. Fox then swooped in to grab the property. Read more about The Moon is a Harsh Mistress movie below. Read More »
Arrow and The Flash are doing quite well for The CW, and the network is pursuing more shows in the same vein. When Brandon Routh joined Arrow this year there was talk of a potential spin-off show featuring his character, for example. Now we know more about that show, and it won’t just be a showcase for Routh. No, this one is a DC Comics team series at the CW, featuring four actors/characters from Arrow and The Flash. Read More »

All manner of superheroic characters have stopped by The CW’s Arrow over the past three seasons — including, most recently, the Flash, in order to launch fellow CW TV show The Flash. Now Marc Guggenheim has his eye on an even bigger name.
The executive producer teased the possibility of a Batman appearance on Arrow, though he admits it won’t “be happening anytime soon.” Meanwhile, he also believes a Supergirl crossover could be in the cards. Hit the jump for Guggenheim’s Arrow Batman crossover comments. Read More »
This second trailer for Thor Freudenthal‘s Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters features a cavalcade of beasties, and also a significant presence from Nathan Fillion, who plays a modernized version of the god Hermes. That’s probably enough to warrant a look from many potential audience members.
Those elements were present in the first trailer, along with plenty of material featuring returning cast (Logan Lerman, Brandon T Jackson, and Alexandra Daddario). But the intent here seems to be to sell the movie as a real spectacle. In that respect it succeeds pretty well. The series still has to truly establish itself as a proper successor to the Harry Potter films — and that may not be possible — but at least it appears to be able to make good on a promise to deliver colorful and dangerous monsters.

It’s been nearly two decades since the last time Perry Mason graced the screen, but considering Hollywood’s current obsession with making everything old new again, it’s probably not so surprising that the beloved defense attorney is slated for a big-screen revival. Last fall, Robert Downey, Jr., his wife/partner Susan Downey, and Warner Bros. announced a feature film reboot for the character. Now that project is inching a bit closer to reality as Green Lantern writer Marc Guggenheim enters talks to pen the script. More details after the jump.

The CW lost Smallville when the series ended with the finale of the show’s tenth season in May 2011. Since then, the network has been looking at other DC properties, like the Deadman series that is being spearheaded through development by Supernatural‘s Eric Kripke.
Now the CW is nearly ready to order a pilot for what could become its new DC franchise: Arrow, a show based on the long-running DC archer Green Arrow. The show would be an hourlong drama conceived and exec produced by Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim, who were the primary writers among several people credited for the script for last summer’s Green Lantern.
