If Man of Steel, Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad are any indication, the DC Cinematic Universe is going to be much darker and grimmer than Marvel’s. But a new rumor suggests it’ll eventually get a big dash of fun and color, thanks to the misfit pairing of Booster Gold and Blue Beetle.
Are you ready for another sexy vampire soap opera? Just a couple years after its Dracula show crashed and burned, NBC is ready to try again. Greg Berlanti, producer of The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl will make a pilot called Brides, which follows three female vampires as they live in modern New York City.
The new Supergirl TV show takes place in a world that already has Superman—and that’s a huge part of the show’s format. We know that the Man of Steel is out there, doing his incredible feats. So how long will Kara be feeling like second best to her cousin Kal-El? We asked the show’s producers at Comic-Con.
NBC has ordered a pilot of Blindspot from Greg Berlanti (Arrow/Flash/Supergirl). Blindspot "begins with a beautiful woman, covered in a "road map" of tattoos, discovered naked in Times Square. Her mysterious ink sends the FBI on an intense journey which, ultimately, reveals her true identity." [TV Line]
Melissa Benoist, best-known as Marley Rose on Glee and Nicole in the movie Whiplash! She's not blonde! This is easily fixed! But come to think about it, why does Supergirl have to be blonde? It's not like Superman is blonde or anything. Anyways, this casting for the potential CBS series works for us.
This would be a first for DC, which has four shows based on comic book characters on TV right now. Thus far, the only shows sharing a universe have been the two sharing a network. But according to Greg Berlanti, that could be about to change.
We heard the rumor, but now it's official — Warner Bros. TV has greenlit a Supergirl to be executive produced by Arrow mastermind Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler, who made No Ordinary Family with him. I'd say this make the odds of Supergirl joining Arrow and The Flash on The CW not insignificant.
With Batman popping up in the next Superman movie, it looks like we'll finally be seeing the DC Universe coming together on the big screen. But Arrow is already planning to bring more DC characters to television, even as Season Two zooms in on the show's core characters.
Green Lantern opens this weekend, and the stars and creative team told us about the challenges of adapting an insanely complex mythology, how to play villains who aren't yet villains, and being forced to wear an impossibly huge prosthetic head.
