    Now: Forever: Exeunt omnes.
  2. So, exclusive to some site I've never heard of... Elliot Knight has been cast to play Don Hall, the original Dove, in Season 1 flashbacks. Don, Hank "Hawk" Hall's younger brother, was killed in Crisis on Infinite Earths; Minka Kelly is playing the new Dove, Dawn Granger.

  4. This seems pretty obvious, but this particular Twitter account seems to have good connections.,.. It's probably more interesting (at least to me) that they're moving ahead with looking for directors for these particular films than that they're looking for women.
  5. Jess Meuse has an actual full-length album out, and this is the single that's getting some traction:
  6. Hi, You've all been a decent bunch, and we haven't had an urgent need to post a "rules" thread. But, if we need to make any general announcements we'll do it here, and we're leaving this thread unlocked so, if you want to ask us something, you can do so here as well. Also, you should all feel free to PM either or both of us if that's your preferred method. - @MarkHB and @The Crazed Spruce, Co-Mods P.S., the thread title comes from her 80's letters column in the 80's, "Daring New Readers of Supergirl". It was either that or the original one from her run in Adventure Comics, "Super Fe-Mail".

    In S1, yes, there was that little bit between Alex and Max, and IIRC some of the fans were shipping them. But it never went anywhere, Peter Facinelli didn't make the move to Vancouver, and then Alex had her self-realization. And I think that's the important thing: Alex didn't come out, even to herself, until she was in her late 20's. She wasn't one of the kids like some are today who are out-and-proud in high school; she was trying to figure out why her relationships with guys never seemed to work out, until Maggie came along and she finally had some context for her feelings. So she's still trying to find her way in herself.
  8. I saw it in the fight that started the whole thing. My own story: one high school summer day at a campground, I wound up in a pseudo-game of tag with a girl, that ended with me trapping her at the end of a dock. Adrenaline. competition hormones... later that day, it led to my first kiss. So I totally got that the fight led to... something else.

  10. Beyond the Cape: Cast in Other Roles

    I love that she's in the Supergirl costume in that caricature.
  11. TFOL in the media

    Wow... diagnosed with bone cancer at 91. That's heartbreaking.
  12. Justice League (2017)

    To me it seemed obvious that the studio was in a "throw it out the door and wash our hands of it" mood. Personally, I think by itself it's an enjoyable enough movie, but for those of us who liked MoS and BvS it was an ill-fitting, disappointing conclusion to the trilogy.
  13. Given that there has been talk of a Nightwing movie, I don't think that that was ever anything more than the backstory that Zack had in his head. The idea that they were going to go to Carrie Kelley next, though, is interesting... maybe Anna Kendrick really was going to play Robin! The other thing I've been thinking, though, as regards the whole "Batman is at the end of his career" narrative that was hinted at in both BvS and JL, is that the filmmakers were struggling with how to make him valuable in the midst of a battle with someone like Steppenwolf. He doesn't need to be the battelfield tactical leader, not with a highly trained Amazon warrior princess on the team, and realistically the best use of him would be remotely in a strategy and support position where he can best leverage his brain and gadgets.... but would people pay to see that?
  14. Justice League (2017)

    Captain Marvel was changed to retain Billy's personality / consciousness after Crisis on Infinite Earths, just after he and the Marvel Family were moved to the new, combined Earth and when he was mainly appearing in the Keith Giffen Justice League International. Later, I think after Flashpoint, they modified his powers to focus a bit more on electricity and their magical source. I assume both developments were to help differentiate him from Superman. So far as I know, there's no reason he can't be treated as part of the Justice League, as the trailer and some set photos make clear that this is the same Earth as the prior films, and it's generally believed that this film went to New Line just as a tricky financial move. Personally, I think the kid friendly angle is going to go over well; this might have the buzziest trailer coming out of Comic-Con.
  15. Justice League (2017)

    I think that one issue is that, when they were conceived (mostly in the Golden and Silver Ages), there was little to no attention given to individualizing DC's heroes' personalities (with the exception of Wonder Woman). They were all heroic Gryffindors and the differences were mostly on the surface with their different powers and maybe a quirk thrown in (like Barry being habitually slow). There was some attention paid to that after the Silver-Bronze transition c. 1969, but they didn't really dig into it until after the Crisis, and at that point Barry was dead and he stayed dead for a generation while Wally was The Flash. So when Snyder and Terrio were sketching out the character mix for the JL and wanted to include a shy nerd, Barry was the obvious selection since Victor was a college football star and they already had Jason Momoa in mind for a 90's-esque Aquaman. And personally I wouldn't call Barry "cowardly." The whole point of the original story (meaning what Snyder and Terrio intended to tell before everything happened) was that these people who were hiding from and rejecting their gifts would discover (or re-discover, in the cases of Bruce and Diana) the hero within through being inspired by the sacrificial death of the man who could do anything and everything. Barry has built himself a suit and is leveraging his powers already (witness both the "push some people and run away" and his apprehension of Captain Boomerang as shown in Suicide Squad), but he has never faced a truly powerful foe before.
  16. Via Batman-News, news on The Batman! Reeves is hoping to start filming in the spring or early summer next year.
  17. I don't think so... "Worlds of DC" isn't the official name, either. :)

    Note that Robert Baker's character is, apparently, Otis (as in Ned Beatty's character from the Chris Reeve films). Hopefully he'll have a scene with Eve at some point.
  19. Aquaman (2018)

    Cast: Jason Momoa : Arthur Curry / Aquaman Amber Heard : Mera Patrick Wilson : Prince Orm / Ocean Master Willem Dafoe : Vulko Temuera Morrison : Tom Curry Dolph Lundgren : Nereus Yahya Abdul-Mateen II : Black Manta Nicole Kidman : Queen Atlanna Directed by James Wan Anticipated release date: December 21, 2018
  20. Opens July 27 in the USA, but the world premiere will be at SDCC this week.
  21. Todd and Farah are on the run from the law, heading to small town Bergsberg, Montana in search of Dirk. Mysteriously, Bart's search for Ken takes her to the same small town, where odd, unexplainable events are starting to take place....
  22. Teen Titans Go! to the Movies (2018)

    I saw this this afternoon. It's a lot of fun, especially if you know DC history, and it's worth staying all the way to the end for one last gag. Also, there's an animated short attached to it!
  23. No one can figure out Wonder Girl. Her origins are more of a mess than the Hawks at this point. However, a nice surprise: there's a (new CN version) DC Superhero Girls animated short attached to Teen Titans Go! to the Movies. It took me a minute to figure out what it was, though, just because I wasn't expecting it.
  24. So, DCSHG is graduating to Cartoon Network later this year. In May, it seems, we got our first look at the new character designs. Synopsis from the article:
