Melissa Benoist and the 'Supergirl' Team Talk Joyful Heroes
While the the first female-led superhero film to arrive in theaters is still a few years off, the vacuum will be filled this coming Monday in TV land. Yes, Supergirl will soon beat the likes of Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, Black Widow and even Jessica Jones to the punch as the first female superhero to get her own live-action starring vehicle this century. DC Comics and Warner Bros. have had some success in the serialized drama arena with Arrow and The Flash, but even from the earliest marketing you could tell Supergirl was carving a different path, and not just because she's on another network. This week we were given an early look at the upcoming pilot for Supergirl, and it's clear the series will be taking a much lighter approach to its hero's journey than the more gritty street-level action of Arrow or even the sci-fi turmoil of The Flash. While that's a fresh approach given the recent climate of superhero fare, the first episode isn't without its flaws. After viewing it, we took part in a conversation with producers Ali Adler, Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg (both also responsible for Arrow and The Flash), as well as the new Supergirl herself, Melissa Benoist, to discuss the show, where it's headed, and the challenges of making a nigh-invulnerable lead vulnerable.

New 'The Flash' TV series to spin out of Arrow, be less dark
New 'The Flash' TV series to spin out of Arrow, be less dark
As I have said many times, The CW's Arrow is a pretty dark show to be as silly as it is sometimes. One might suspect that the network's new series featuring Barry Allen as The Flash would take a similar tack, but the writers developing the series, which will spin off from Arrow, are indicating Barry's show will be brighter and more superheroic than Ollie's. The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Ba

Andrew Kreisberg Talks Boom Tubes in Detroit, Bonding With Geoff Johns and Reinventing Vibe [Interview]
Vibe is a character with a lot of baggage. Seen by many as a racially insensitive product of his time, and others as a bit of a joke, the former Justice League Detroit member has never completely caught on with fans. Despite that, he is still certainly recognizable, and DC Comics' New 52 initiative has afforded the publisher an opportunity to give Vibe a second chance...

THQ and Vigil Game's Darksiders series is known for creator Joe Madureira's bright and bulky figures and an overall aesthetic that pulls straight from the longtime comic book artist's illustration work. The franchises comic book ties resulted in two projects back when the first game dropped in 2010, and now Dark Horse Comics will provide yet another Darksiders project when the game drops in August
