CBS’ Supergirl made clear from the start that it intended to tell Kara’s story - not her Super-cousin’s - though that didn’t stop the DC drama from awkwardly fumbling around his offscreen presence. Now, in addition to the big CW move, Supergirl will finally introduce a flesh-and-blood (or rather steel) Superman, casting for the iconic role now underway.

The addition of Supergirl to The CW lineup of course demanded an epic four-way crossover with Arrow, Flash and Legends of Tomorrow, though fans of Glee alum Melissa Benoist and Grant Gustin in particular have clamored for the talented casts to put their pipes to good use. Stephen Amell has put his green boot down, however, wanting to get Arrow back to its grounded roots, rather than go anywhere near musical territory.
The Flash’s big screen debut finally has a director.
Take a look at the biggest names in superheroes and you probably realize that you're looking at a sea of red, blue, yellow. There are some greens, whites, blacks, etc, but the most iconic superheroes are the red and blue, with yellow accents. It's no accident that the easiest colors to render in the four-color printing process became the choice for bold heroes. But what does it mean for characterization of these heroes? What does it tell us about those characters?
Season 1 of The Flash left an open question as to how Tom Cavanagh would return, his “Harrison Wells” having been outed as a disguise for the Reverse-Flash, leaving it all the more surprising that Season 2 would similarly throw the actor’s status into question. That said, Cavanagh has now been confirmed for The Flash Season 3, but which of three (or more!) characters might he play?
The fourth season finale of Arrow ended on a fairly low-key “Schism,” disappointing a throng of fans who tuned into see if a time-turning Flash twist one-night earlier would ripple out across The CW’s DC dramas. The Arrow finale went by with nary a mention of Central City, but star Stephen Amell thinks the emerald archer will be back to basics in Season 5, rather than dealing with time-travel twists from another series.

This week, the battle with Zoom comes to a flashy conclusion with an inevitable foot race and a lot of confusing pseudo-science, and the identity of the man in the iron mask is finally revealed. "The Race of His Life" was directed by Antonio Negret and written by Aaron Helbing & Todd Helbing.
It's not an exaggeration to say that Carmine Infantino is one of the most significant and influential figures in the history of comics. On the surface, it's easy to point out his role in the creation of Barry Allen, Wally West, Barbara Gordon, Black Canary, Deadman, Elongated Man, the Human Target, Detective Chimp, and many more as a sign of his influence. But on a macro scale, his streamlined, mid-century modern style determined the aesthetic of what would prove to be the renaissance of the superhero genre in the Silver Age, and his bold editorial direction would usher in comics' next great era, the Bronze Age. Indeed, without Carmine Infantino, comics as we know them would not exist.
