January 15, 2016: Melissa Benoist Talks About Owning the Role of SupergirlPrint

Supergirl At the recent Television Critics Association press event, "Supergirl" star Melissa Benoist told those in attendance how she now feels about wearing the Supergirl costume, and what it means to have both Helen Slater and Laura Vandervoort on the show. Here's part of the interview...

    How much ownership do you take of the costume now? When you see yourself in it, do you feel like, "That's me!"

    Totally. Now, yes. I think I've gotten to the point where I feel very comfortable in it. I feel like every time it's on, I know something hard is coming up. Whether it's a fight or some kind of crazy, emotional scene with someone that is a nemesis or something that is hurting her because I think Supergirl putting on the suit entails putting on all of her baggage, to me.

    It's not too uncomfortable, unless it's 103 degrees outside - which we've done some days like that! You get a little bit of, if it's really hot, nothing up [top] breathes. If it's really cold, my legs are exposed.

    Did you go read the original ["For the Man Who Has Everything" story] to prep for the upcoming episode based on it?

    Did I read the comic? Oh yeah! The whole episode, it's been my favorite to play. I think it's beautiful. It's got this "Wizard of Oz" type feel to it. We talked so much about how Kara has lost and how important Krypton was to her, and to actually be Kara Zor-El on Krypton was a pretty magical feeling.

    What does it mean to you to have this sorority, in a sense, of Supergirls, with Helen Slater and now Laura Vandervoort involved in the show?

    It just feels good to honor the past. Not many people have played this character before. It's a special thing to be a part of. Not many people play Kryptonians, really. That's rare and unique. So I feel like Laura is an amazing addition to our show.

January 14, 2016: First Look at Blake Jenner on "Supergirl"Print

Melissa Benoist and Blake Jenner E! News gives us our first look at Blake Jenner's debut on "Supergirl". Who is Blake Jenner? On the show he'll be playing Cat Grant's estranged biological son who Kara becomes infatuated with. In real life he just happens to be Melissa Benoist's husband.

    In the Jan. 25 episode, Jenner will introduce himself to Benoist's Kara as Adam Foster, who happens to be her boss Cat's (Calista Flockhart) very handsome and very estranged biological son. Crushing on your boss' son? Not awkward at all!

    E! News also has your exclusive first look at Adam and Cat's tense reunion, and fans can expect Adam's arrival to complicate Kara and Cat's relationship...and he will probably continue to do so as Jenner is set to appear in multiple episodes.

    Benoist and Jenner first met on the set of Glee after they both joined the cast in 2012 as off-and-on love interests Marley and Ryder, respectively. They tied the knot this past spring, after reportedly getting engaged in July 2013.

Blake Jenner will make his first appearance on "Supergirl" in the episode titled "Strange Visitor From Another Planet" airing Monday, January 25 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Mild Mannered Reviews - Injustice: Year Five - Chapter #3

Released Digitally: January 4, 2016

"The Enemy of my Enemy"

Writer: Brian Buccellato
Penciller: Tom Derenick
Inker: Tom Derenick
Cover: David Yardin

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    Despite the excessive decompression of Injustice, there are moments that come through well, and Bane is one of them. Bane remains in character, an antagonist for the Batman, and a man looking at his surroundings carefully, then deciding what works best... for him. That bit of structure doesn't last long, as we see Bane restrain Doomsday in a full nelson, and Regime Superman knock the monster out. It's one thing for Doomsday to be no threat to Regime, but another when Bane, even on Venom, has the strength to hold him for any length of time, let alone give Doomsday any type of pause based on the abilities Bane possesses. This is when, and it often happens, Injustice becomes its namesake, a video game where Green Arrow can fight Doomsday and win, if the buttons of the controller can be pressed fast enough in the right combination. Doomsday is little more than an annoyance, and like Lobo, devalued to a caricature of what he could be. Wonder Woman and the rest of the League's resistance to Bane is tellingly blind, as he is no different from Regime, with the exception of the throne Regime sits upon. The fact that Bane can be recognized immediately as a villain, is compounded by the truth before them: the League cannot see the villain that leads them, nor the villains they've become, and it's confounding as to why. Perhaps only Flash and Shazam are truly aware of what is transpiring, yet they continue to enable the situation, with the delusion that somehow Regime will return to his once noble self, though he shows definitively that such a return will never come.

January 13, 2016: Further Details on Bizarro Role in "Supergirl"Print

Hope Lauren As we reported a few days ago, the 12th episode of "Supergirl" is titled "Bizarro", and features Hope Lauren in the role of Supergirl's strange doppelgänger. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg gives us a few extra details about the character...

    'Cat coins her Bizarro, which is very appropriate,' Supergirl EP Andrew Kreisberg tells EW. 'As she says, I can name Supergirl, I can name her enemies. The biggest thing about it that was a surprise for us as we constructed the character and the arc was how sad Bizzaro is. In a way, we sort of think about her like Frankenstein['s monster]. She's a monster, but she has a pure child's heart. Ironically, in the episode, while everyone else is saying, 'We have to figure out a way to destroy her,' Kara is the only one saying, 'No, no, no, we have to save her.' That makes the episode so emblematic of what's so special about Kara. She's looking to save everybody, even if they're the bad guy.'

The "Bizarro" episode of "Supergirl" will air on Monday, February 1 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

January 13, 2016: Cadmus Coming to "Supergirl" TV SeriesPrint

Supergirl At the recent Television Critics Association press event, "Supergirl" executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told TVinsider.com that we can expect to see Project Cadmus introduced in an upcoming episode.

    "We bring on Project Cadmus to Supergirl in episode 17," he stated, adding that the show's version of the anti-metahuman cabal-turned-genetic engineering organization (first introduced in the comics by guru Jack Kirby in 1970) was still taking shape. "How it's going to be personified, we're still not sure."

However they shape it, the appearance of Cadmus is sure to create somewhat of a stir within the DEO.
