The unexpected family reunion will have big consequences for Winn, who has painstakingly tried to put a barrier between his family life and his life in National City with Kara (Melissa Benoist) and the Supergirl mission. "He's completely tried to forget that part of his life, tuck it in a box and never talk about it again," Jordan said. "The fact that he's sort of forced to face it and deal with it [evokes] a lot of things that he's been holding down. You kind of see he deals with everything with a little bit of humor, but that comes from a place of defense. We start to see that defense mechanism break down in a big way. Consequentially, it affects other things going on in his life at the same time."

FEATURES COLLABORATION BETWEEN HANS ZIMMER & JUNKIE XL
AVAILABLE ON CD, DELUXE 2 CD SET, LIMITED EDITION 3 DISC VINYL DELUXE AND DIGITAL FORMATS
SOUNDTRACK RELEASES MARCH 18
WaterTower Music announced today the March 18 release of the soundtrack to the upcoming feature film "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," a collaborative effort by film composers Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL (aka Tom Holkenborg). Available digitally, on CD, 2-disc deluxe CD, and on Limited Edition 3-disc deluxe vinyl, the first public sample of the music has been made available HERE, and the album is now available for preorder. The 2-CD deluxe package, the digital deluxe version, and the 3-disc deluxe vinyl set feature over 90 minutes of music, five bonus tracks, an exclusive fold-out poster and liner notes from the composers. Additionally, the vinyl set features etched vinyl art and an album download card.
"Junkie XL is an incredibly insightful film composer. It was a perfect idea for us to work together on the 'Batman v Superman' score," explained Academy-Award-winning composer Zimmer. Grammy nominee Junkie XL showed equal excitement at the pairing, saying, "Hans has an incredible legacy, and I was extremely thrilled when he approached me to work on 'Batman v Superman' with him."
The composers discussed their close working relationship with director Zack Snyder. "Zack allows us to try things we haven't tried before. He's very supportive of the eccentricities that we bring to this," says Zimmer. Junkie XL concurred. "He's very open and accepting of our ideas, and infuses the creative process with an energy that inspires you."
"Hans and Tom (Junkie XL) created an incredibly compelling and interesting new musical world for Batman, while continuing to expand on the amazing world and themes Hans had previously created for Superman," noted director Zack Snyder. "By aligning their vision with my perspective and seeing the characters anew through the lens of the film they were able to support the visual aspects of movie in a way that elevates the film to another level. In so many ways, they become the final texture, the final note in the process of creating the world."
"This electrifying collaboration brings us such brilliant new character themes," commented WaterTower Music head Jason Linn, "While we've been fortunate to work several times with both composers individually, this experience has been uniquely thrilling."
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be released March 18. It is now available for pre-order at iTunes, at Amazon, and can be preordered on Vinyl. The tracklist is as follows:
About the Film:
From director Zack Snyder comes "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," starring Oscar winner Ben Affleck ("Argo") as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent in the characters' first big-screen pairing.
The film also stars Oscar nominees Amy Adams ("American Hustle") as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg ("The Social Network") as Lex Luthor, Diane Lane ("Unfaithful") as Martha Kent, and Laurence Fishburne ("What's Love Got to Do with It") as Perry White; Oscar winners Jeremy Irons ("Reversal of Fortune") as Alfred, and Holly Hunter ("The Piano") as Senator Finch; and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince. Snyder directed from a screenplay written by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer, based on characters from DC Comics, including Batman, created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, and Superman, created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The film is produced by Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder, with Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and David S. Goyer serving as executive producers.
Warner Bros. Pictures presents, an Atlas Entertainment/Cruel and Unusual production, a Zack Snyder film, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." The film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. The film opens nationwide in RealD 3D, and in 2D, and in select IMAX 3D theaters on March 25, 2016. It has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA for intense sequences of violence and action throughout, and some sensuality.
Two specials will air that night, giving fans an inside look at both the upcoming "Legends of Tomorrow" TV show and the future of the DC movie universe.
Premiering just after a new episode of "The Flash," the "DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Their Time is Now" documentary will air at 9.00pm for half an hour, and will then be followed by "DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League" at 9.30pm (also a half-hour special).
A new promo video starring Geoff Johns and Kevin Smith has now been released promoting the special presentation:
Get a look at never-before-seen footage, and see interviews with such stars as Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot, and directors Zack Snyder and Patty Jenkins - just a few of the creative forces behind the much-anticipated film franchise that will bring together the greatest collective of Super Heroes in the upcoming Justice League feature film. And because no Super Hero could make his or her mark without a truly formidable foe, the special also provides glimpses of DC's most famous Super Villains.
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.
