It was announced this week that The CW was growing its ever-expanding line of superhero content with a new animated show set to debut on CW Seed, starring DC Comics superhero The Ray. The show is being touted as featuring the first gay lead superhero on television, but who is The Ray? We've put together a Crash Course to get to know him better.
Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist.
This week, Cast Party is going vintage. There have been movies about superheroes in World War II, but we haven't really seen a full live-action super-team in that era. While they may not be quite as historically important as the Justice Society, the Freedom Fighters, consisting of Quality Comics heroes who are now owned by DC, embody that era like no other team.
