Earlier this week, we posted an extensive interview with "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s" Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, and Jeph Loeb... But left a few little bits out. First, and most important? That the hologram projectors on the show are razor hot: Read More...

"Man of Steel" director Zack Snyder and DC Animated Universe mastermind Bruce Timm teamed up to create this short looking at 75 years of Superman across comics, television, film, and games all the way from the character's first appearance in print to his most recent cinematic outing and reinvention in the New 52.

Bronze_Tiger_Michael_Jai_White

By Alex Zalben

Tonight on The CW's "Arrow," our newly rechristened hero faces the first major challenge to his "no killing" rule, in the form of hero-hunter Bronze Tiger. The comic book villain is played on screen by Michael Jai White, the insanely accomplished martial artist/actor you might know from "Spawn," "The Dark Knight," and way more. In advance of the premiere, we chatted with Jai White about his take on Bronze Tiger, whether he'll be on for more episodes, and just why he signed on for the show (hint: it's not why you'd think): Read More...

Yup, that looks about right. As just tweeted by "Arrow" star Stephen Amell, here's your first look at how Black Canary will show up on the small screen.

On last week's episode, we got a quick look at the Canary in action, and here she is in full... Interesting to note that unlike her comic book counterpart, she's got no fishnets, she DOES have a mask, and carries a sword (unlike, say, having a super powerful sonic scream). Here's Amell's full tweet: Read More...

We're big fans of composer Bear McCreary around here, from his work on "Battlestar Galactica," "Da Vinci's Demons," and more. So how does the prolific musician put together the score for a show like "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."? Not like this. Not like this: Read More...

Last week's return of "Arrow" to the CW marks the beginning of a new wave of DC television series. Not only have Warner Bros. and DC announced their plans for a "Flash" spinoff series sometime next year but they've also made mention of a Jim Gordon-centric "Gotham" TV series over at FOX.

Marvel Studios may be killing it in the Cinematic Universe, but it seems like DC has television on lock. In fact, DC has always been pretty proficient with their TV series. Case in point being "Swamp Thing: The Series," a TV show based on a DC character made popular by Alan Moore in the 80's. With Guillermo del Toro's plans to include Swamp Thing in his "Justice League Dark" film, we think now's as good a time as any to reflect back on the "Swamp Thing" TV series. Read More...

Aaaaand we're back! The dead were up and walking again on Sunday night, as we rejoined the cast of "The Walking Dead" in their prison-dwelling, zombie-slaying lives of leisure. It's been six months since we watched Woodbury go down in the big finale of Season 3, and about as much time has passed in the Walking Dead universe — giving the remaining survivors plenty of time to make friends, build a community, and possibly become a bit too secure in the ability of their barbed wire and big walls to keep the dangerous world at bay. Here's what went down in the long-awaited premiere of Season 4.

To begin with, things are pretty hunky-dory at Chez Survivor. They've got al fresco dining, a robust garden, even a working iPod with which to drown out the gnashing of walkers whilst you hoe a row. And whatever early (off-screen) growing pains the prison community might've experienced, everyone's getting along famously now: there's a council in charge of decision-making, there are romances blossoming left and right, a hyper-eager bespectacled young man named Patrick is calling Daryl "Mister Dixon", and everyone who was on the verge of madness last season seems to have conquered their demons. Even Carl has traded in his cold stares and killing sprees for comic books (although he still turns up his nose at joining the rest of the kiddies for story time.) Read More...

zzax

This is pure speculation on my part, based on a pair of "Z"s in a recently released "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." title, but are we headed for our first super-villain team-up? Potential spoilers for the series past this point:

As just announced, episode 6 of AoS will feature Titus Welliver, reprising his role as Agent Blake from the Marvel One-Shot short, "Item 47." We don't know a lot more about the episode, except it's called "FZZT." That title alone, though, suggests a few things:

- Looks like we'll finally get a Fitz focused episode, though we imagine things aren't going so well for our little tech nerd.

- That title sure reminds us of Hulk villain Zzzax.

...Which, mind you, is a pretty tenuous connection to make, but here's more fuel for the fire: Zzzax, a being made out of pure electricity, teamed up fellow villain Graviton in the comics to take down the West Coast Avengers. And as we all know, Graviton, aka Dr. Franklin Hall, made his debut in last week's episode of AoS.

Furthermore, in the comics, Graviton assembled a team to represent the four fundamental forces of the Unified Field Theory: Gravity; Electricity; Weak; and Strong. Which yes, is the nerdiest possible reason for assembling a super-villain team, but come on: science.

So we've already met Graviton. We may meet Zzzax in episode six. Can the other two, Quantum and Half-Life, be far behind?

We'll just have to stay tuned...

By Charles Webb

It's only been a month since DC and the CW announced that they'd found their would-be Flash in actor Grant Gustin. Technically, Gustin would be playing police forensic investigator before something causes him to make his fateful transformation into the fastest man alive.

But given the (relatively) grounded nature of the DC television universe, what kind of impact will having an actual, super-powered hero have on the vigilante and his world? Read More...

Sunday marks the long-awaited return of "The Walking Dead" on AMC, and unnnnngh, we are rarin' for it. The fourth season of the wildly popular show promises something for everyone: comic book-based goodies for the source material loyalist, brand new characters for those bored with the ever-dwindling cast of the Ricktatorship, and lots and lots of zombies who will no doubt be dispatched to the undead afterlife in ways that are gross beyond our wildest dreams. Don't forget: the more time passes in the "Walking Dead" universe, the more squishy and festering the titular characters get!

So, with that in mind, let's take a little refreshing run back through the best moments of Season 3 — so that when the zombies come a-running (or a-shambling, as the case may be), we'll know exactly where we left off: Read More...
