  3. Yes, I was corrected on Twitter. Caity Lotz trolled me :) .
  4. S04.E01: American Alien

    I... may have rewound that scene a couple of times.
  5. Well, that kind of answers the "so what's Kara going to do?" question.... nicely done! EDIT: I had thought this one was a fan Photoshop, but Caity Lotz just Tweeted it, so it's apparently another legit poster. This thing's going to be crazy! EDIT 2: Apparently this is actually a BossLogic original, so I have been successfully trolled by Caity Lotz.
  6. Unless someone in production is doing a masterful and expensive job of trolling Stephen Amell, yes. And, since Amell's tweet specifically said, "My name is Barry Allen, and I am the fastest man alive," I'd say that they are, in fact, playing the opposite characters.
  7. 9 AM the poster drops... so does that mean noon EDT today?????
  8. The suit does look good (although the black original in the comics dispensed with the cape). So far as the movies go, the black suit did exist... he just chose the blue.
  9. I'm pretty sure that's the Rams' and Chargers' new stadium, scheduled to open next year.
  10. That pool table looks like it belongs in Alex's apartment: drinks and guns.
  11. I enjoyed it and am looking forward to next week. I do really like the actress playing Raven, and I'll admit to getting a chuckle out of the soundtrack choice for Cori's intro (as well as wondering wtf her story is). Nice to get the DC Films intro and the 4-hero DC/WB logo at the end (albeit covered by the damn "PLAY THE NEXT SHOW THAT ISN'T EVEN HERE!" box).
  12. Episode 1: Titans It's up now :) . Enjoy!
  13. The crossover is actually my favorite week of the season, tbh. I also tend to find the VOTW structure to be more entertaining than season-long Big Bads (and I have a very low tolerance for character-relationship drama as opposed to action-adventure tales), so the interruption excites me more than anything.
  14. Incidentally, the hiring of James Gunn to write Suicide Squad 2 was called "official" on today's DC Daily. They repeated the "fresh new take" line as well.
  15. They could have given more of an intro to Boomerang (although I loved the Flash cameo), but in truth his role on the Squad is the same as it was in the comics: to be an asshole. They actually toned him down a bit in the movie from the 80's Ostrander run; the main reason I quit buying that book at the time was because I was tired of reading him being such a miserable shit. The bit with Waller being the Macguffin was somewhat lost, IMHO, because by the time we get to the Federal building the movie has let us forget that they're supposed to be rescuing someone, and so the twist that Waller has put bombs in these people's necks and sent them into Hell just to save her own sorry ass doesn't land as it should.
  16. The thing is, Suicide Squad was far more successful than anticipated, so I'm not sure "rescue" is what they're looking for. Yes, it was critically maligned, but it took in a ton of money, I'm guessing primarily from disaffected teens who know what day new clothes arrive at Hot Topic. I can't comment on the GotG comparisons as I haven't seen those movies, but for me it finally struck me that SS was essentially Miami Vice, all about pop cuts and style. Which, I was and am fine with.
  17. Titans In The Media

    This promo must have come out pretty recently, as most of the links are in the last 24 hours and I just heard about it on Holy Batcast (which I think recorded yesterday)...
  18. You mean the designer for Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl? That's also Colleen Atwood.
  19. I'll just point out that she also wears the long red wig in the comics, so it's not something the CW added.
  20. Titans In The Media

    For those who are interested in the rest of the DCU original shows, here's the tentative release calendar that came out of NYCC. Subject to change, Safe Harbor, etc. etc.
  21. Those who watch the show may have seen Season 3, Ep. 9, when the wardens were called out to search for Geraldine Largay, an older woman who vanished while hiking the Appalachian Trail in July, 2013. Today, it was announced that her remains have been found.
