October 10, 2015: Calista Flockhart Amazed by "Supergirl" BuzzPrint

Cat Grant Calista Flockhart, who plays Cat Grant in the upcoming "Supergirl" TV series, told ET Online that she's overwhelmed by the amount of buzz there is surrounding the show.

    "I am really happy to be a part of a show that embraces girl power and celebrates girl power," Flockhart told ET on the set of the exciting new show.

    "This show has gotten so much buzz before we've even been on the air - that's a little disconcerting to me," she admitted. "That's a little scary."

    "It's a daunting feeling in the best way because obviously it feels like a responsibility but I love that I can do it in this way - that she's quirky and kind of weird and flawed and funny in a way that Kara [Zor-El] is discovering herself right now when we meet her in the pilot," Benoist said back in July. "I'm glad I can show girls that you can do anything that you want to do."

After 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be, on the series premiere of SUPERGIRL, Monday, Oct. 26 (8:30-9:30 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network. The series moves to its regular time period (8:00-9:00 PM) on Monday, Nov. 2.

October 10, 2015: Frank Miller Talks Superman on "The Atom" Mini-Comic CoverPrint

The Atom Each issue of Dark Knight III: The Master Race will include a 16-page minicomic written by Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello and drawn by a roster of superstar artists. This past week DC Comics released a look at Frank Miller's cover for The Atom's minicomic, which drew some reaction from the Internet regarding Superman's anatomy.

Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello participated in a Q&A panel yesterday during New York Comic Con, where our own T.A. Ewart took to the microphone to ask the pair about the cover image...

    THE DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE continues Frank Miller's landmark Dark Knight saga that began with 1986's THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS and continued with its 2001-2002 sequel THE DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN. Co-written by Brian Azzarello and drawn by Andy Kubert and Klaus Janson, The Dark Knight III: The Master Race is a miniseries in eight parts, with each issue consisting of one 32-page main story and one 16-page minicomic focusing on a different character from within the world of Miller's Dark Knight. These minicomics are a crucial part of the story, are also written by Miller and Azzarello and will be drawn by some of the greatest artists currently working in comics.

The Dark Knight III: The Master Race #1 will be available from November 25.


October 9, 2015: "Batman v Superman" Figurines and Costumes on Display at NYCCPrint

Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have plenty of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" items on display at New York Comic Con, currently taking place this weekend.

Interestingly, Mattel's "Knightmare Batman" action figure from "Batman v Superman" may unwittingly reveal via its name that the sequence of Batman fighting Superman soldiers could indeed be a nightmare/dream sequence in the film, rather than something that actually happens within the continuity of the film.

Other props, costumes and action figures from the movie were also on display throughout the convention.

October 8, 2015: Michael Wilkinson Shows Off "Batman v Superman" Costume DesignsPrint

In a new DC All Access video, costume designer Michael Wilkinson reveals the hidden details in the Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman costumes for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

As sharp-eyed fans had noticed, Kryptonian script is included in some areas of Superman costumes. Wilkinson says, "Zack actually loved the idea that there was some Kryptonian script embedded in the suit. He gave me this fantastic quote he wanted us to translate into Kryptonian and incorporate it into the suit. It sort of deals with the nature of power and responsibility."

Revealing that it took a whole year to develop the costumes, Wilkinson adds, "We made sure we did our homework and looked into the histories of all these characters."

October 8, 2015: George Miller Reveals His Approach to SupermanPrint

While he openly admits that he's not currently interested in taking on Superman or any other big budget film at this point in time, director George Miller (who was recently rumored to have been in line to direct a stand-alone Superman movie) tells IGN.com how he would approach Superman as a character and where things were at with his defunct "Justice League" movie.

Man of Steel Regarding the rumors of him taking on "Man of Steel 2":

    "I'll basically say no. Sorry again, not trying to be coy about it. You have so many things lined up. You just don't know which one's going to break [...] the next film I want to do won't be a Mad Max film. It'll be a small film. I just want to get away from big action films for a while. But I just can't help myself. I like to do things which are technically not challenging but technically interesting."

His thoughts on Superman:

    "I think it's been said many times before: he's potentially a very boring character because he has no faults," Miller told IGN. "So you really have to find his demons really to get an internal conflict going. You've really got to do that. Whether that's by an external agency or something deep inside himself. You need that conflicted character.

Where things were at with his "Justice League" movie:

    "And in terms of what we would've done, clearly we weren't going to fly Superman and Wonder Woman on wires," Miller told IGN. "They were going to be C.G., but again you're working your butt off to make it not look like C.G.. Ken Ralston - who's a great, great visual effects artist - was going to be doing a lot of that. The WETA stuff at that point was mainly in the practical costumes and the effects."
