Five different DC dramas will air on the major networks by early 2016, another even resurrected for a surprise crossover, and now the comic company has its eye on a new angle. NBC has put into development Powerless, a — and we’re in no way joking here — workplace comedy set amid the backdrop of DC superheroes and their destructive battles.

Friends, our national nightmare is almost over. As I'm sure you're already aware, there hasn't been a new episode of Nickelodeon's Power Rangers Dino Charge since April, when the show took a break for the summer and left us all wondering if our favorite teenage natural history museum employees --- and, you know, color coded superheroes --- would ever return to save us all from the interplanetary threat of Sledge.
Now, at last, we are on the verge of the Rangers' return. This Saturday at noon, the show is back with "When Logic Fails," a new episode that finds the Rangers trapped in a strange maze while some genuinely terrifying medical experiments are going on with the monsters. And to get the word out, they've sent us an exclusive clip where Riley, the Green Ranger, discovers exactly what a TV dinner feels like.
We’ve known for some time that The Flash would introduce a second (now third) speedster in Wally West, revealed last week in casting Keiynan Lonsdale, though the character’s familial relationship was left somewhat unclear. New showrunner insight teases the speedsters’ relationship, while Season 2 has also begun casting DC villain (or hero?) Doctor Light.
Arrow Season 4 shocked and delighted DC fans with news that Warner Bros. had actually approved Matt Ryan‘s now-canceled Constantine to crop up in Starling City for a crossover, many speculating what would bring the demon-fighter into Oliver Queen’s world. Now, new details confirm that Constantine will have a hand in Sara Lance’s pre-Legends resurrection, among other surprises.
CBS’ Supergirl has yet to show off any actual footage beyond the pilot that many have known for months now, but will DC’s Livewire finally charge things up? True Blood alum Brit Morgan has signed on for the shock jock supervillain role, while even more DC characters may lie ahead in our future.
We’ve known since The Flash’s first season finale that Golden Age speedster Jay Garrick would put in an appearance alongside Barry Allen, cemented at Comic-Con 2015 with the casting of Teddy Sears, and now the CW drama pays homage to its DC roots in a major way. Check out our first look at Flash Season 2's Jay Garrick, recreating a classic comic cover!
The untimely (and repeated) cancellation of NBC’s Constantine didn’t stop the rumor mill from suggesting that Arrow Season 4 might pickup the DC demon-fighting detective for a crossover event, though rights issues seemingly tangled things up. Whatever magic spell Constantine seems to have cast has worked, as Matt Ryan will officially reprise the role in Arrow Season 4!
Anyone who enjoys charting the course between AMC’s Walking Dead and its comic iteration can’t help noticing a few aesthetic differences, as the live-action series tends to pour out sweat in blistering heat from every direction. The comics have more evenly depicted walkers through multiple climates, but when it comes to snow, showrunner Scott Gimple has an intriguing response.
As CBS’ Supergirl and others caught the brunt of earlier this year, TV’s pilot season has been increasingly difficult to keep under wraps, assuming you trust the veracity of “leaks” to begin with. In any case, FOX’s Lucifer and Minority Report, along with NBC’s Blindspot and others have officially become the latest victims.
Well I certainly had that one wrong. Yesterday, when WWE teased a "face-to-face confrontation" between Arrow star Stephen Amell and Stardust, the former Tag Team Champion who has been recently styling himself as a cosmic supervillain, I assumed that we'd get a minor physical altercation that would set up a match between Stardust and another pro wrestler. That is, after all, the way celebrity appearances usually go. What we got was something way, way better.
