Okay, Now ‘Supergirl’ IS Casting its Own Superman … Sort Of

CBS Supergirl Superman Casting Kal El

CBS' Supergirl has maintained a notably odd relationship with Superman, over-alluding to him in the pilot without speaking a name, only to feature a faceless fly-by and emoji chat as early as episode 3. Now, the DC drama will take its next Kryptic step, casting a younger Man of Steel for an appearance that ... might make your head hurt.

Best Comic Books Ever (This Week): New Releases For November 25 2015


The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, “Which comic books should I be reading?” or, “I’m new to comics, what’s a good place to start?” The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

It’s with these challenges in mind that we’ve created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers and seasoned Wednesday shoppers alike can find our picks of the best books the medium has to offer.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ Trailer: It’s Time to Choose a Side

Captain America Civil War promo art teams

With Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans promising a big surprise on Jimmy Kimmel Live, we knew it had to be something special — that something is the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War. Not a teaser, but an actual, full trailer, dramatically highlighting the growing divide between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark, which will divide the Avengers and pit them against one another in what could be Marvel's most epic film yet.

A Lifetime Girl Scout: New ‘Lumberjanes’ Artist Carey Pietsch on Building Character and Earning Badges


As the latest guest artist to head out to camp with the Lumberjanes, Carey Pietsch is well qualified. Not only does she know her way around a campfire, but her previous comic work includes a series of self-published mini-comics that combine exactly the sense of grandly fantastical and intimately personal that has made Lumberjanes one of the most important hit comics of the past couple of years.
Pietsch joins writers Shannon Watters and Kat Leyh for the latest Lumberjanes arc, featuring an encounter with a possible werewolf, starting with issue #21, in stores this week. ComicsAlliance chatted to Pietsch to find out how she landed the gig, and what sort of experience she has in the wilderness!

Funko’s Star Wars Smuggler’s Bounty Isn’t Quite the Subscription Box We Were Looking For

Funko Star Wars Smugglers Bounty First Order

Following on the heels of Funko's Marvel Collector Corps subscription box, the collectible company slid comfortably over to Disney's other big pop culture phenomenon, Star Wars, for its latest venture. The Smuggler's Bounty adheres to the formula established by the MCC, and gives those who subscribe a handful of exclusive items, including shirts, pins, patches, and a few coveted, limited Pop figures. With so much hype and hoopla surrounding the arrival of a new Star Wars movie for the first time in 10 years, Funko positioned itself well to capitalize on all the excitement.

However, despite the promise the Smuggler's Bounty held, the First Order box, based on the villains of The Force Awakens, it lacks the significant punch of its Marvel brethren. In fact, were it not for the inclusion of the first fully-chromed out Captain Phasma, the Smuggler's Bounty would have been a great disappointment.

Arrow Flash Legends Crossover Photos
The CW

Just yesterday, The CW surprised us with a first full trailer for Legends of Tomorrow, but we’ll need Arrow and The Flash to get us there first by next week’s crossover. To wit, The CW has released a massive gallery of photos hyping the big teamup, both from Tuesday’s “Legends of Today” to Wednesday’s “Legends of Yesterday.” Yes, that seems strangely backward.

A Kickstarter For A Three-Day Wizard School LARP Made $90,000 In 20 Minutes


Should you ever doubt that humanity has a dire and implacable need to pretend to be wizards who go to magic school, consider this: When New World Magischola launched on Kickstarter at 7:00 PM yesterday with the promise of letting people live out that fantasy next summer in Virginia, it had an initial goal of $35,000. At 7:21 PM, it had just rounded $90,000.

The campaign is set to fund a three-day live-action roleplaying session next summer in Virginia, allowing backers to attend classes, cast spells, solve magical mysteries and --- if you're willing to shell out the cash for a premium experience --- even join a secret society with its own special subplot. Also, there will be a breakfast buffet, so I'm gonna need $450, thanks in advance.

Iron Fist Announcements Jessica Jones
Marvel / Netflix

The release of Marvel’s Jessica Jones this weekend put us one notch closer to the massive Defenders teamup, with Luke Cage due to arrive next year, and Iron Fist sometime after that. The lack of Iron Fist news has bred many a rumor of Marvel’s uncertainty over the series, though its TV head claims that announcements deliberately waited until after Jessica Jones had premiered.
