CBS Says Moving ‘Supergirl’ to The CW Was ‘Win-Win for Everyone’

Supergirl CBS CW Move Win Win

It wasn’t seen as likely that Supergirl could make the transition from its prestigious CBS home to the more youth-skewing CW, but now we’ve officially taken the plunge, it remains to be seen what changes lie in store. As far as CBS was concerned, the move is “win-win,” but what took so long to hammer out a deal?

Can Dark Archery Beat Robot Spiders In John Barrowman’s ‘Arrow: The Dark Archer’ Chapter 10?


My understanding of TV's Arrow comes largely from reading ComicsAlliance's weekly recaps. Because of that, I assumed that --- Flash and Legends of Tomorrow crossovers notwithstanding --- it wasn't the kind of show that really lent itself to battles against cybernetic spider monsters. Immortal assassins and hooded vigilantes, sure, but cyber-spiders? That's right out.

But now, I have been proven wrong. In the next chapter of the digital-first Arrow: The Dark Archer comic, Malcolm Merlyn is going to be facing off against a reasonably terrifying giant mutant spider. And in case you didn't know, it's a story co-written by Carole E. Barrowman and John Barrowman, the former Doctor Who star who plays Merlyn on the show, and illustrated by Daniel Sampere. Check out a preview below!

Chloe Bennet Calls Out Marvel Movies for Ignoring ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. paid the requisite lip service to Captain America: Civil War by last week’s ante-penultimate hour (also unintentionally eulogizing Agent Carter in the process), but series star Chloe Bennet appears to have had enough of the one-way street. “The Marvel Cinematic Universe loves to pretend that everything is connected, but then they don’t acknowledge our show at all,” Bennet opines in a new interview.

‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Season 4 Will Move Timeslots, ‘Go a Little Darker’

Agents of SHIELD Season 4 Schedule Darker
Marvel / ABC

Fans of Marvel’s ABC block took small comfort after the cancellations of Agent Carter and Most Wanted that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would at least return for Season 4, and ahead of tonight’s finale, the Avengers-adjacent drama has some big news of its own. Team Coulson will remain on Tuesdays, but airing in the latest possible primetime slot, and making some tonal changes while they’re at it.

AMC’s ‘Preacher’ Goes Cosmic in First Four-Minute Sneak Peek

AMC Preacher Opening Scene Clip

Debuting its first episode in less than a week, AMC’s Preacher has managed to keep a majority of its supernatural bent under wraps, but gets far weirder by its very first scene. See for yourself, as the first four-minute opening scene has arrived, taking us far from God’s country at first, but not without a bit of toilet humor.

Ranger Station Episode 36: Birds Of A Feather

Ranger Station Episode 36: Bids of A Feather

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, we are living in a post-Tommy world --- not that you'd notice.

‘Preacher’ Sets Aptly-Named ‘Talking Preacher’ Aftershow for May

AMC Talking Preacher Aftershow

AMC may have curiously opted a to eschew Fear The Talking Dead as a title (they were okay with puns for Talking Bad), but Preacher will have no such luck when it comes to its own Hardwick-hosted after-show. That’s right, we’ll all be Talking Preacher after the May 29 premiere.

‘Arrow’ Post-Show Analysis: Season 4, Episode 21: ‘Monument Point’


It’s time for another installment of Pointed Commentary, the feature where grizzled Arrow watcher Matt D. Wilson and newcomer Chris Haley dig into the details of Team Arrow cleaning up the filthy, crime-ridden streets of Star City. But for this belated installment, Agents of SHIELD recapper Ziah Grace has stepped in to take Matt Wilson's place.

On this week’s episode, “Monument Point,” Team Arrow makes some questionable choices, Felicity and Captain Lance are both going to be looking for new jobs, and a returning villain calls Thea “mommy,” which weirds everyone out. Kevin Tancharoen directed the episode, which was written by Speed Weed and Jenny Lynn.

‘Flash’ Returns ‘Booster Gold’ Writer Zack Stentz as Season 3 Producer

The CW

The Flash Season 2 has filled something of a mixed bag from episode to episode, though few would argue Kevin Smith’s Zack Stentz-written “Runaway Dinosaur” as one of the major highlights. Now, it seems reports of writing a Booster Gold movie haven’t taken Stentz too far out of DC’s TV orbit, as the writer joins Flash Season 3 in a consulting role.
