Cartoon Network and DC Entertainment have shared the first trailer for the upcoming animated series, DC Super Hero Girls, premiering on March 8th. The series follows the adventures of Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Supergirl, and their colorful cast of fellow heroes and villains.
Saving the day is super easy when you’re a Super Hero. But stopping evil in its tracks while keeping up grades and managing a social life, all before curfew? Ugh. That’s, like, super tough. DC Super Hero Girls are more than crime-fighting besties, they’re a diverse group of dedicated super-teens! Working together, they fight the battles of Metropolis and the battles of growing, up all at the same time. Always discovering new ways to control their powers and abilities, these awesome girls are quickly learning (sometimes the hard way) how to deal with the super challenges of being a teenage Super Hero. We all have the power to make a difference. Just make sure to use it for good or you’ll find yourself up against those tenacious teens, the DC Super Hero Girls.
After her introduction in the Elseworlds crossover between The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl on The CW, the pilot for Batwoman has started its casting process with the first big reveals for the series that give us a great idea of what to expect. Joining Ruby Rose as Kate Kane will be Meagan Tandy (Teen Wolf), Camrus Johnson (Luke Cage) and Nicole Kang (You).
Meagan Tandy is set to play Sophie Moore, one of Kate’s first loves in the comics, she is described as “a high-level private security agent and one of Gotham’s staunchest protectors. Despite her bite and regimented outlook, Sophie has a soft side, illuminated by Kate Kane’s return.”
Camrus Johnson, meanwhile, has been cast as Luke Fox, the son of Batman ally Lucius Fox that suits-up as Batwing in the comics. Luke “considers himself the guardian of all things Batman — specifically his symbol — he also recognizes the city’s need for a new hero.”
Lastly, Nicole Kang will portray Kate’s step sister Mary Hamilton. “Excitable, talkative, and an influencer-in-the-making, what Mary lacks in a filter she makes up for with her compassion for Gotham’s underserved communities, proving she has more in common with Kate than she thinks.”
DC Entertainment has revealed a first look at Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men) as the villainous Superman rogue, Lex Luthor. The image shows Lex sporting a full prison beard while serving a sentence, where we find him when he appears on the series.
Lex Luthor is set to debut in the March 17th episode of Supergirl, titled “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” as he reaches out to his siter, Lena, from his imprisonment to involve her in one of his many plans.
One of the most iconic event series in the history of comic books is officially headed to The CW next year, as the finale of the Elseworlds Arrow-verse crossover concluded with a tease for Crisis on Infinite Earths. In the comics, Crisis on Infinite Earths, written by Marv Wolfman and published in 1985, features a villain known as the Anti-Monitor battling the likes of Superman, Supergirl, and Flash, among others, in an attempt to destroy all life in the Multiverse, that ended when heroes and villains alike across multiple worlds banded together to stop the threat.
The kicker? The event ended with the deaths of Supergirl and The Flash, Barry Allen. The Crisis has been teased since the very first episode of The Flash, so seeing it finally come to fruition is immensely exciting.

TVLine is reporting that Emmy Award-winning actor Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men) has signed on for the fourth season of The CW’s Supergirl, in the recurring role of Lex Luthor. Cryer is surprisingly no stranger to the DC Universe, as he portrayed Lenny Luthor, the insufferable nephew of Lex Luthor in Superman IV: A Quest for Peace.
“We are enormous fans of Jon Cryer, and he was instantly our dream actor to play the iconic role of Lex Luthor. Jon is a super-talent, and the fact that he played Lenny Luthor in ‘Superman IV’ brings an added layer of legacy to his casting. We’re beyond thrilled to welcome Jon to the Supergirl family.”
We recently got our first look at Ruby Rose as Batwoman, and now we have an official look at actor LaMonica Garrett (Designated Survivor) as Elseworlds‘ Mar-Novu, aka The Monitor. The Monitor is described in the upcoming event as “a cosmic being of infinite power.” The Monitor oversees the safety of the Multiverse in the comics, defending it from his rival, the Anti-Monitor.
Details on his involvement in the crossover are still sparse, but it certainly makes for an exciting mystery before the December air-dates of the Arrow crossover. Hit the jump for a look at the official image.
Stephen Amell has released the official Elseworlds poster on his Twitter account for The CW’s three-night superhero crossover event. The poster reveals that destiny will be rewritten with Amell and The Flash actor Grant Gustin switching roles in the upcoming romp through the multiverse.
The crossover will start with The Flash on Sunday, December 9th continuing through Arrow on Monday, December 10th, before it all comes to an end in Supergirl on Tuesday, December 11th. Hit the jump to see the poster in full.
The first official image of Ruby Rose (John Wick: Chapter 2) as Kate Kane, aka Batwoman, from the upcoming Arrow crossover has leaked online, and it’s something to behold. The costume is incredible comic accurate, and seeing it in motion should be pretty fantastic.
The crossover between Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl begins shooting soon, with an early December air-date, and sets up Batwoman for her own solo series, which is expected to debut in 2019. Hit the jump to check out the image in full.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that SyFy has found its Lobo for season 2 of Krypton. The merciless bounty hunter will be played by Irish actor, Emmett J. Scanlan (Constantine), marking the characters first live-action adaptation.
This take on the popular DC Comics character is described as “a genius-level intellect when it comes to matters of warfare and is a deadly adversary. He has superhuman strength and is virtually immortal. Lobo’s word is the only thing he hold sacred and although he’ll never violate the letter of an agreement, he might disregard its spirit from time to time.”
Deadline is reporting that Fargo actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Underground‘s Jurnee Smollett-Bell have officially won the roles of Huntress and Black Canary, respectively in the upcoming DC Entertainment adaptation Birds of Prey. They join Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn in the project, being directed by Cathy Yan.
Birds of Prey hits theaters on February 7th, 2020, and is now a top priority for DC Entertainment as they look to soft reboot their shared universe alongside Supergirl.
The CW and DC Entertainment have confirmed that this year’s upcoming Arrow crossover event will be officially titled Elseworlds. The event will kick off with The Flash on Sunday, December 9th, then Arrow on the 10th, and Supergirl on the 11th. Additionally, we have confirmation that LaMonica Garrett will appear in Elseworlds as The Monitor, the omnipotent cosmic being that cares for the Multiverse, and combats its greatest enemy, the Anti-Monitor.
Additionally, George Pérez, one of the Monitor’s co-creators alongside Marv Wolfman, will create a sketch of Garret’s take on The Monitor, as he “plays a prominent role in the crossover’s story.” This crossover is shaping up to be quite the endeavor for The CW team.
The cast for the upcoming annual Arrow crossover just keeps getting bigger, as we now know the villain of the piece. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jeremy Davies (LOST) has signed on to play John Deegan, “a doctor at Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane in Gotham City, who might just be crazier than the inmates he treats.” This is most certainly a new take on John Dee, a.k.a. Doctor Destiny, famous for villainous turns in the JLA, and Neil Gaiman’s Sandman.
What’s interesting is that this also confirms a Gotham City setting for a good chunk of the crossover as our heroes attempt to stop Doctor Destiny.
It’s been reported that the annual Arrow crossover has gotten even more interesting with the addition of a supporting character to one of Batman’s villainous rogues. Cassandra Jean Amell (Mad Men), wife of Arrow star, Stephen Amell, has been cast as Nora Fries in the upcoming crossover. Nora Fries is, of course, the wife of villain Mr. Freeze.
While it’s been confirmed the villain won’t be making an appearance, this could set the stage for the villain in the upcoming Batwoman solo series, starring Ruby Rose. We should find out more when the Arrow crossover airs later this year.
In what can only be called a coup for casting, Deadline is reporting that Ruby Rose (Orange is the New Black, The Meg) has been cast as Kate Kane, aka Batwoman, for the upcoming Arrowverse crossover, as well as her own show produced by Greg Berlanti, and Caroline Dries.
Rose is an open member of the LGBTQ+ community, making her a perfect representative to the world of Arrow, as well as a great choice for the openly gay Kate Kane.
