We were admittedly surprised by the “leaked” trailers for Syfy Superman prequel Krypton, so much so that official pickup seemed like a no-brainer. Now, the David Goyer-produced series reveals its first official footage, cementing our earlier optimism.
Well, Supergirl had to brainwash Superman into not appearing in its first finale, so it makes sense Season 2 would modify the tradition. Our first trailer for next Monday’s “Nevertheless, She Persisted” finale teases Tyler Hoechlin’s Man of Steel taking up arms against his cousin, to say nothing of a final showdown with Rhea.
Supergirl Season 2 set out to answer that pesky Superman question early on, but fans can’t forsake hope for that charming Tyler Hoechlin’s return. Wish granted! Ol’ Supes will return to Supergirl Season 2 after all, and before the year is out.
Perhaps keeping coy in her CW move, Supergirl has notably trailed behind Arrow, Flash or Legends of Tomorrow in releasing any official previews of the new season. That said, the first official photo brings Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman down to stand alongside his cousin (and maybe even throw a little shade Zack Snyder’s way).
Supergirl surprised us all with the news that Season 2 would bring an actual Superman alongside its move to The CW, and we’ve got your first look at the new Man of Steel. See Tyler Hoechlin suited up as Superman in the first official photo from Supergirl Season 2!
Unfortunate news for fans of former Lois Lane and revered star Noel Neill, as the iconic Adventures of Superman star has passed away at age 95. Neill had portrayed the famous DC supporting character as early as 1948, including cameos in both Richard Donner’s 1978 update and 2006's Superman Returns.
Supergirl’s move to The CW for Season 2 raised bigger questions than whether or not Superman would ever drop by, consider at least one mystery solved. The Martian Manhunter himself, David Harewood shared the official title for Supergirl’s Season 2 premiere, one that may just presage the arrival of a familiar face.
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.
Many years ago, Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was deep into development on a Justice League movie. How deep? He had his entire cast — including Armie Hammer as Batman, Common as Green Lantern and Adam Brody as Flash — and was well into rehearsals in Australia. That project wound up getting canceled because of the writer’s strike and Justice League would lay dormant…until this April when Zack Snyder begins filming on his two-part Justice League movie. That film — starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa as Aquaman and Ezra Miller as The Flash — now has at least one major connection to the defunct Justice League film of 2008: Miller himself, who will return to produce the new version.
Admittedly, I never felt too outraged over the ending of last summer’s ‘Man of Steel.’ (Yes, there will be major spoilers ahead.) The complaints over Superman breaking the neck of his foe were certainly valid – therefore changing the very definition of the character – but it didn’t affect my enjoyment of the film. That changed after seeing ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier.’
It looks like the 'Batman vs. Superman' casting rumors are true! After various reports and speculations that Wonder Woman would be joining Batman and Superman in director Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' follow-up, the character has been confirmed and actress Gal Gadot has been cast in the role!
