Super, if not-particularly surprising news, everyone! CBS forthcoming Supergirl series has followed The Flash’s lead in returning past franchise stars to the new edition, recruiting Lois & Clark star Dean Cain and original cinematic Supergirl Helen Slater for “top-secret” roles. Might the former Superman and Supergirl’s characters be so easy to identify in CBS’ rendition, however?

The CW Eyes ‘Arrow’ and ‘Flash’ Spinoff with The Atom, Firestorm, Black Canary and More

We thought it unlikely that Arrow could spawn yet another CW spinoff to see The Atom joining The Flash but it turns out the network’s real plan is infinitely crazier. The CW is reportedly working on a new series to feature not only Brandon Routh’s Atom, but also Victor Garber’s Firestorm, Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold, and craziest of all, Caity Lotz’s Black Canary!

‘Teen Titans Go’ Producer Michael Jelenic On The ‘Young Justice’ Crossover And The Show’s Changing Voice

hqdefault2

Over almost two years and over eighty episodes on the air, Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans Go has dropped its characters into a wide variety of different situations. They might go to the future, meet alternate versions of themselves, or die of old age. There are even songs.

Some critics have accused the show of being too silly, so in the episode debuting today, “Let’s Get Serious,” the Titans meet some of these critics in the form of Young Justice, the teen superhero team from their own, departed, animated show --- and they’re definitely not pleased with what they see. To battle their critics, the Titans grimace really hard until they too become incredibly serious, muscled, gritty one-liner-spouting versions of themselves.

We spoke to series producer Michael Jelenic about the crossover, bouncing criticisms back at detractors and pushing the show into even wider, weirder directions.

Netflix Announces New ‘Danger Mouse’ and ‘Inspector Gadget’ Series

Inspector Gadget, Netflix

At long last, Richie Rich's reign of capitalist terror is over, at least where the options for children's shows on Netflix are concerned.

The company's slate of original programming has been growing pretty steadily in recent months, and now, less than a week after the debut of the first season of new adventures for the pint-sized oligarch, the announcement came down via Variety about what they're working on for the next year, including a new series based on Playmobil figures and, of more interest to those of us driven primarily by nostalgia, reboots of Inspector Gadget and Danger Mouse.

Few comic book writers are as hot right now as the wife-and-husband team of Kelly Sue DeConnick and Matt Fraction, so it’s not all that surprising that the couple has signed a deal with Universal to develop their work into television shows. What is a little surprising is that this duo found their success creating deeply personal and wildly experimental comics, which means that some of the best comic book writers working today are going to adapt some of the best comics currently being published. This could be something special.

‘Agent Carter’ Season 1 Recap, Episode 8: ‘Valediction’

CA_AgentCarter1-8

The end has come upon us. The eighth and final episode of Agent Carter has aired, and a show that was perhaps too beautiful for this world may have seen its last over-the-shoulder goon-toss with a finale that brought Peggy's war against Leviathan to an at times thrilling, and at times perhaps too-familiar conclusion --- featuring Dottie, Faustus, Jarvis, Howard, and all the gang. (Except Dooley. Sorry, Dooley.)

Episode 8, 'Valediction,' was directed by Christopher Misiano and written by Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters. Was it a fitting end to the show, and is it really the end?

Netflix’s ‘Richie Rich’ Show Is Here, And It’s Weirder Than We Expected (But Just As Infuriating)

Richie Rich, Netflix

A few months ago, we brought you the news that Netflix was producing a TV show based on Harvey Comics' infuriatingly wealthy Richie Rich, which naturally led to me venting my boundless rage against the insufferable little tow-headed one-percenter and then doing my best to forget it was happening. Now, though, the Richening is finally upon us.
