The first trailer for CBS’ forthcoming Supergirl series came under a fair bit of scrutiny for hewing too close to romantic comedies, but the network may want to brace itself for even more exposure. Months before its debut, the full Supergirl pilot has leaked online through torrent websites.
Regardless of network, any and all DC TV series spur talk of crossover potential from fans. The Flash arrived with its Arrow connection built in, but despite Supergirl’s CBS proximity to The CW, executive producer Greg Berlanti confirms that the universes will remain separate (for now, anyway).
CBS Supergirl arrived to the world in a first trailer from the Upfront presentations yesterday, though fans were quick to note the omniprescence of romantic comedy schtick recently skewered by SNL with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow. Second time’s the charm it seems, as the latest, shorter Supergirl trailer drops the romance in favor of action, bringing out some famous Kryptonian abilities to do it.
CBS' Supergirl will officially take her Kryptonian place on the lineup Mondays this fall, but why wait for an early look at Superman's cousin? The first trailer for Supergirl has at last arrived, bringing with it plenty of super-surprises and DC alien action.
It’s been a good while since we’ve heard from CBS’ forthcoming Supergirl series, but with TV’s dreaded Upfronts arriving next week (we’ve already got scotch handy), one of the season’s more obvious picks has officially taken flight. Kara of Krypton will officially come to CBS this fall with a Supergirl series order. It's uncertain where CBS might schedule Supergirl during the week; rumor suggests we may see Kara take flight on Sundays.
In a leaked email between Marvel CEO Ike Perlmutter and Sony CEO Michael Lynton, Perlmutter offered up three examples of terrible female-led super hero films - Elektra, Catwoman, and Supergirl - as part of what some have theorized was a conversation about why not to do more female-led super hero films. There's a lot of speculation involved, but nonetheless it's an interesting email from Perlmutter that has a few possible interpretations.
In the latest sign that publishers are waking up to the idea that young readers and women represent the future of the comic book industry, DC Comics has announced a new initiative in partnership with Mattel, Lego, and other brands, which focuses entirely on superhero products for an audience of young women; DC Super Hero Girls.
With Supergirl's new CBS TV series set to debut this fall, this week we're taking a closer look at the Maid of Might, Superman's most famous and convoluted cousin. Find out how Kal-El might have been the last son of Krypton but not its last daughter, why Supergirl used to change clothes in a fake tree, and how this innocent young girl from another world came to fall in love with a space horse, as well as several other equally interesting facts.
It's inspired cosplayers and artists alike, and hangs in pride of place on many comic fans' walls, yet Adam Hughes' Real Power of the DC Universe poster was originally just a giveaway at San Diego Comic-Con back in 2008. Recreating a high glamour photo shoot with DC's biggest female heroes (and anti-heroes), including Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Power Girl, Supergirl, Batwoman, and Oracle, the poster is both a great piece of work and a wonderful tribute to these powerful characters.
The poster has become a truly iconic image over the past few years, so we reached out to Hughes to find out the story behind its creation, and to learn about the choices he made --- including why Catwoman is in a black dress!
With CBS' Supergirl show in production, it's a great time to talk about the character's convoluted history in the recurring feature we call Comics, Everybody! Cartoonist Chris Haley of Let’s Be Friends Again and colorist Jordan Gibson are here to educate you about the many iterations of Supergirl, their individual origins, and how they are or aren't related to Superman.
Whether you're new to comics, new to DC's heroes, or a long-time fan looking to re-familiarize yourself with the eccentricities of superhero continuity (or maybe engage in some hardcore nitpicking), we hope you'll enjoy this tribute to the most super girl in the DCU, and her animal boyfriend.
