April 20, 2016: Honest Trailers - "Superman Returns"Print

Superman Returns Honest Trailers ran a fun little competition between "Superman: The Movie" and Tim Burton's "Batman" last month, seeing which trailer would get the most views... and the winner was Superman!

As the winner, and in response to fan requests, the guys at Screen Junkies put together an Honest Trailer for "Superman Returns":


April 20, 2016: Superman and Supergirl Nearly Got Together in "Superman III"Print

Kiss Did you know that the original plan for "Superman III" was for a love triangle between Superman, Supergirl and Brainiac?

    The original villain was Brainiac (with Mister Mxyzptlk also involved), but the major thrust was the introduction of Supergirl into the film universe. She lands on a world controlled by Brainiac, who raises – and eventually falls in love with - her. Rejecting him, Supergirl escapes and ultimately ends up on Earth.

    Here's the really odd part: She eventually becomes a superhero on Earth, using her superpowers for good. Superman becomes curious about whether she's really a hero, and goes undercover as a villain to see what this Supergirl will do. She proves herself and then, as Salkind writes:

    "The look between the two will tell the audience that they have magically fallen in love. There is then conversation trying to find out if they are related. They are not. Then there is an idyllic sequence of Superman and Supergirl climbing up to 7th heaven. We shall have to find some beautiful place either on Earth or elsewhere (i.e. the Milky Way)."

    Brainiac tracks Supergirl to Earth, where he discovers that not only is she in love with Superman, but that Superman is in love with her.

April 20, 2016: Andrew Kreisberg Talks About "Supergirl" Season 2Print

Season Finale While CBS has yet to officially announce that "Supergirl" has been picked up for a second season, Entertainment Weekly caught up with the show's executive producer Andrew Kreisberg to talk about Monday night's Season 1 finale, what their plans are for season 2, and a whole lot more. Here's part of the interview, which does contain SPOILERS if you haven't yet seen the Season 1 finale...

    Let's start off with the reveal that someone else has landed on Earth. What can you tease of who this is? Are they friend or foe?

    Obviously it's our big cliffhanger of the season, so I'm not fully inclined to let everyone know who shot J.R. It's an important character, and they'll play an important role in season 2.

    Is this a character we may have seen in the comics before?

    Again, I don't want to give too much away, but it'll be cool. The fans are going to be excited. It's going to definitely shake things up for season 2.

    Especially with something like Project Cadmus in the ether, the first person I think of is Superboy.

    [Crickets.]

    Moving on, Kara was willing to risk her life for the world. How does that change her in season 2?

    This whole season has been about her embracing being Supergirl. In a way, this was her graduation episode. She hadn't fully figured out how to integrate being Supergirl into her life. This whole season has been a learning experience for her. At the end of this episode, she's fully Supergirl. Next season, you're going to see a Supergirl who is more mature, and a bit more of a cohesive character. She's taken the identity of Kara and the identity of Supergirl and merged them in a better way. You're just going to see a more confident, stronger Supergirl than we've ever seen before.

"Of Might and Men"

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

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

    Standard Injustice story. Death and destruction resulting from everyone and their dog being more dysfunctional than Dr. Jekyll. I suppose it doesn't matter that trained mercenaries, soldiers, etc., would be unlikely to react over such a trifle as an errant, empty hamburger container hitting them, or Bizarro having it in his dim mind that killing everyone is the best way to be rid of witnesses, but Injustice must maintain its kill count or lose relevance... or something.

April 18, 2016: Will Kara and James Get Together in the "Supergirl" Finale?Print

Supergirl In last week's episode of "Supergirl", Kara kissed James Olsen only to have Myriad take over his mind at that very moment, turning him into a mind-controlled autobot. So will James get his mind back and respond to Kara's kiss in tonight's finale? TVGuide.com finds out...

    "He is more of his own man. He's more sure of the things he wants in his life," Brooks says. "There is a surprise moment toward the end where James takes a brave step with Kara. That's a huge 180 in some ways. "The magnet of attraction for these two has been pulling strongly all season and it only seems fair that if Kara can save the world she can finally have a moment with the guy she's been pining for since the first episode.

    "The best relationships are people that are friends first. They have that and they have this partnership. There's this kinship and a working relationship and everything seems to be working," Brooks says about their attraction. "Even when it's not, they seem to magnetize back to each other. There's a mutual attraction, but it's based on a real friendship and desire to help people."

Meanwhile, TV Guide also asked the cast of "Supergirl" some interesting questions, like their weirdest talents, first crush, and more...
