Jon Favreau offers a look at the voices behind his Lion King remake. Star Trek producer Heather Kadin promises Discovery and Picard will feel different from each other. The DC/CW superhero crossover teases both Lois Lane and a familiar Superman location. Plus, what’s to come on Supernatural, and a clever new Daredevil poster. Spoilers, go!

Jon Favreau shared a behind-the-scenes photo of the live-action Lion King’s voice cast.
Bloody-Disgusting has the first poster.
We also have the trailer for All The Creatures Were Stirring, a Christmas-set horror anthology starring Constance Wu.
Speaking with Trek Movie, executive producer Heather Kadin stated each new Star Trek TV series will have its own unique “voice.”
I think the one thing we can say which is more general is that it’s been a real conscious effort that every project we do have its own voice and occupy its own space. I don’t mean its own space in canon, I mean its own tonal vision. Because you shouldn’t tune in to Discovery and wonder if you flipped the channel, that it was Picard. They should feel different, they should have different messages coming from different people.
A set photo from Melissa Benoist gives us our first look at Elizabeth “Bitsie” Tulloch as Lois Lane, on what looks like it could be the Kent family farm.
We’re going to keep it all season and series. We didn’t know how long the show was going to go on for, so we always knew that after season 5, there wouldn’t be flashbacks. So, we had talked about flash-forwards years ago. Like, ‘is this what we’re going to do when there aren’t flashbacks?

Discussing next week’s episode with TV Guide, Hartley Sawyer promised Ralph and Caitlin will be spending more time together this season (although not romantically, as some have expected):
What I love the most about that episode is we explore Caitlin and Ralph together. And I see people all the time thinking like, ‘Oh is this going to be a romance?’ It’s not a romance, but I love what the friendship is... I love those two characters together, the bond that they have, and that bond is going to further as well.
