When Brainiac cleverly displaces several members of the Justice League to other time periods in Earth's history, Batman, Flash and Cyborg must build and use the Cosmic Treadmill to race across time to retrieve their comrades - while members of the Legion of Super Heroes attempt to hold off Brainiac's assault. Only time will tell in this battle for the fate of the Earth and the Justice League!

February 5, 2016: Additional Characters Listed for The Flash/Supergirl Crossover EpisodePrint

Worlds Finest As we reported a few days ago, The Flash will cross over to join forces with Supergirl in an episode of "Supergirl" scheduled to air on CBS on Monday, March 28.

Yesterday Grant Gustin, who plays The Flash on the hit TV series of the same name, posted an image of the front page of the episode's script to his Instagram account. Not only did that image reveal that the title of the episode is "Worlds Finest", but upon further investigation you can make out the names of other characters who will also be involved in this episode.

Superman fan Ryan Ottney changed the contrast levels on the image of the script, which reveals that the page below the front cover includes the cast listing. Lucky for us you can make out that three of the guest appearances in this episode include Lucy Lane, Siobhan Smythe/Silver Banshee and Leslie Willis/Livewire.

Siobhan Smythe (aka Silver Banshee) is being played by Italia Ricci. While Leslie Willis (aka Livewire) is played by Brit Morgan. Jenna Dewan-Tatum plays Lucy Lane of course.

The "Worlds Finest" crossover episode, which is noted as being episode 18, is written by Greg Berlanti with teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg and Michael Grassi.

February 4, 2016: Zack Snyder Talks About "Man of Steel" and DC's TV PropertiesPrint

Batman v Superman Speaking on the Hall of Justice Podcast, director Zack Snyder spoke in detail about the new film, reactions to the "Man of Steel," and his feelings on the current DC Television shows.

In regards to the criticism some fans directed at "Man of Steel", Snyder said, "People are always like 'you changed Superman'. If you're a comic book fan, you know that I didn't change Superman. If you know the true canon, you know that I didn't change Superman. If you're a fan of the old movies, yeah I changed him a bit."

As for the DC TV landscape, Snyder exclaimed, "This is the bottom line for me. I have 100% respect and love for what they're doing on TV. I think it's amazing. The joy and the fun of them speaks to the iconic, graphic nature of these characters. These characters are bigger than any of the actors playing them. Long after I'm done making a Batman v Superman movie, there will be someone else who makes it. It's almost like an American tradition now we've established that these characters will be played again and again, and they exist outside of us in this moment.

I think that's sort of the thing I've embraced, and as opposed to trying to shoehorn all of these storylines into a single universe, we let the characters exist in multi-universe, and therefore it's a lot more fun and a lot more value for the audience. They get to see their favourite and most beloved characters on different adventures at the same time in different universes and it really makes the meal a lot richer and a lot more fun. We get to go with these guys in all different directions and that's really the joy of what we're trying to do over here at DC."

February 4, 2016: Bryan Singer's Thoughts on "Superman Returns"Print

Superman Returns In an interview with Empire magazine, Bryan Singer reflected on directing "Superman Returns" and why the film misfired with fans.

    "It was a movie made for a certain kind of audience. Perhaps more of a female audience. It wasn't what it needed to be, I guess. I think I could lop the first quarter off and start the movie a bit more aggressively and maybe find a way to start the movie with the jet disaster sequence or something. I could have grabbed the audience a little more quickly. I don't know what would have helped. Probably nothing. If I could go again, I would do an origin. I would reboot it."

Interestingly, Singer had tentative plans in place for a sequel to "Superman Returns" which would have been titled "Man of Steel".

    "We did explore it a little. Just hammering out ideas. I think Darkseid was going to be the villain. It was pretty world-destroying, actually."

While those plans never got off the ground, a lack of interest from Warner Bros. saw the direct move on to a different project.

    "I ended up having the opportunity to go and make Valkyrie, and I think the studio lost interest at that point... I can't say it was all the studio's fault and I can't say it was all my fault. It just fizzled out."
