Supergirl has played every bit of homage to prior productions as her DC counterparts, finding roles for just about every other Kara Zor-El, so might Wonder Woman be next? Supergirl producers reveal an authoritative role in mind for Lynda Carter come Season 2, you know, presuming Supergirl gets a Season 2 (it’s going to get a Season 2).
The moment we knew for certain that Supergirl would meet The Flash, rays of sunshine burst forth from the combination of TV’s lightest heroes at a time we sorely need that. Now, everyone literally gets ice cream in quick clips from the “Worlds Finest” crossover, nestled in a new behind-the-scenes featurette.
Welcome to Supergirl Guys, our regular feature breaking down the highs and lows of CBS’s Supergirl TV show starring Melissa Benoist in the super smiling title role. Your travelling companions on this journey are Superman super-fan Chris Haley, andFlash recap veteran Dylan Todd.
This week, the secret history of the Martian Manhunter, the secret origin of Silver Banshee, and the return of Dean Cain, plus Supergirl versus the military: Dawn of Injustice. 'Manhunter' was directed by Chris Fisher, with a story by Derek Simon, and a teleplay by Cindy Lichtman & Rachel Shukert.
The Flash has proven to be one of the most popular superhero adaptations on television, rising above the standard of shows like Smallville, Arrow and even Agents of SHIELD. It's generally regarded as the go-to show for upbeat superhero adventures in a world where Superman levels entire city blocks and Batman asks him if he bleeds. However, there’s one aspect of The Flash that doesn’t quite sit right with a lot of viewers, and that’s the illegal metahuman prison underneath STAR Labs.
This is how it starts: The Flash fights a bad guy who can turn himself into mist, and when they catch him, they don’t know what to do with him --- but they have a super-science particle accelerator under their feet which can be converted into a holding cell, so off he goes to lockup. Then they fight a guy who can turn his skin into steel, and he could easily break out of any regular prison, so it only makes sense to lock him up somewhere he can’t break out, and soon they have an entire prison, nicknamed "The Pipeline".
Flash leading man Grant Gustin and Supergirl star Melissa Benoist have two things in common. First, they both play the sunshiniest DC superheroes ever to brighten our TV screens in their respective shows. Second, they both got their big breaks on the Fox high school musical series Glee.
To mark their crossover in next week's Supergirl episode "Worlds Finest", ComicsAlliance's Elle Collins and Andrew Wheeler took a look at other Glee cast members who could follow their former colleagues into heroic roles on the DC super-shows --- perhaps in guest spots on either The Flash or Supergirl.
Supergirl dropped a Cadmus-load of DC goodness by Monday’s “Manhunter,” but then came The Flash speeding along for our first official footage of next week’s “Worlds Finest” crossover! Wouldn’t you know it, those crazy kids are every bit as adorable in action as the photos would suggest.
Supergirl has steadily unveiled more and more of its upcoming Flash crossover, though without perhaps acknowledging how The CW’s Barry Allen ends up on CBS. Now, a new report reveals the mechanism behind our Super teamup, while Grant Gustin teases the possibility of adding Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow into the mix next year.
Say what you will about DC's mass media projects, but one thing they've been very good about over the past few years is giving giving us plenty of comics meant to take advantage of their mass media success. With Batman v Superman hitting screens this month, it's at the point where you literally can't open a box of Cheerios without finding a comic book in there somewhere, but for the TV universe, they've been relying on digital-first comics like The Adventures of Supergirl to help turn viewers into readers.
Now, though, it looks like they're expanding that plan into print. As announced today, DC will be publishing Adventures of Supergirl as a bimonthly comic at $2.99, serializing the digital-first stories that tie into the CBS Supergirl show in advance of a paperback collection set to debut this fall.
If yesterday seemed abnormally bright, it might have had something to do with the adorable first photos of Supergirl and The Flash crossing over for the former’s March 28 “Worlds Finest.” You just knew there had to be a race as well, the first footage of which arrives in a new crossover tease!
