FOX’s Gotham has been on a cold snap of teasing its latest early Batman arrival, but another, equally sinister villain will make an ominous debut in the DC drama’s February 29 return. Meet Jurassic World star B.D. Wong’s take on Hugo Strange, in a new photo of the major Bat-Baddie’s debut!

With 800 episodes over the course of 22 years, the Power Rangers television show is arguably the single most successful live-action superhero franchise of all time, and certainly one of the strangest. Adapted from Japan's long-running Super Sentai series, created by manga legend Shotaro Ishinomori, the Power Rangers combined the giant robots and monsters of their Japanese counterpart with a completely different set of secret identities and problems, and became a pop cultural phenomenon. That's why we're looking back with an in-depth guide to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, including its source material, Kyuoryu Sentai Zyuranger, in ComicsAlliance's Ranger Station!
This week, one of the Rangers has to face their fears, and... wait, didn't we do this one before?
We’ve just over a month until the second season of Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil arrives to Punish us all, and ahead of a full trailer, Matt Murdock has a Chinese New Year surprise. The time has come to settle all debts, courtesy of a brand new teaser for Daredevil Season 2 on Netflix.
Much as we’ve adored the first few weeks of Agent Carter Season 2, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans are eager to pick up on the 2015 cliffhanger that saw Grant Ward manifesting yet another Inhuman threat. Say no more, S.H.I.E.L.D. fans, as the first 2016 synopsis has arrived, leading the team to bounce back with a pursuit of even more super-powered Secret Warriors!
Early Gotham showings of a young Mr. Freeze brought understandably icy reception; certainly an upgrade for the FOX drama’s costume quotient, if perhaps not-all-there yet. Well, get ready for the full-blown Freeze, as new set photos reveal the chilling sound of Gotham’s doom, cold suit and all!
After a half-season of set-up in both Arrow and The Flash, it’s finally here: the CW’s latest super-show, Legends of Tomorrow, featuring Arrow’s Atom and White Canary, as well as both halves of Firestorm, the Hawkpersons, and rogues Captain Cold and Heat Wave from The Flash, the show follows Rip Hunter and his team of misfits across time.
Our longest-serving Arrow and Flash recappers, Matt Wilson and Dylan Todd, have joined forces for Stuff of Legends, our Legends of Tomorrow post-show analysis. This week in “Blood Ties,” cults are revealed, heists are pulled off, and voyages are fantastic. The episode was directed by Dermott Downs, and written by Chris Fedak and Marc Guggenheim.
Rumors have circulated over the last few weeks that a Punisher show on Netflix may be on the cards, spinning out of Jon Bernthal's performance in the upcoming second season of Daredevil, while previous rumors suggested that the platform might deliver a Moon Knight show. The first raft of Marvel Netlix shows is less than halfway through launching, and Netflix boss Ted Sarandon has said that further shows are possible, but there are no current plans to do more than a couple of shows a year. 'Phase Two' of Marvel's Netflix plans may be a few years away.
But that won't stop us speculating wildly on the shows we'd like to see if the platform does pursue a more aggressive Marvel strategy and move beyond the current line up of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. So in the spirit of wishful thinking, we asked our contributors the question; Which Marvel property would you like to see turned into a Netflix show?
We’re still waiting on The Walking Dead Season 6 to return, but companion series Fear The Walking Dead won’t be far behind with its own return in April. Check out the first Season 2 promos, including our Flight 462 miniseries tie-in, and find out what Wolverine is joining the cast!
Whatever your feelings on FOX’s Gotham, we’re at least curious to see how the Bat-prequel handles two of the Dark Knight’s most iconic rogues, Mr. Freeze and Hugo Strange. We met the former briefly last year, and now his reign of icy terror continues in our first 2016 promo for Season 2’s return.
DC TV shows have an astonishing amount of musical theatre talent between them, not the least of which is Rent alum Jesse L. Martin as The Flash’s Joe West. We’ve seen The Flash get musical once or twice before, but “Welcome to Earth-2” will finally give the erstwhile Tom Collins his due, judging by the official photos.
