CBS' SUPERGIRL gets a new trailer...

On Monday, October 26 at 8:30/7:30c, CBS' SUPERGIRL will fly into living rooms as the latest television series ripped from the pages of DC Comics. After a stellar extended first-look a few months back, a new preview has hit the web and can be viewed below. This is one of my personal "most-anticipated" new series' for 2015....

Ryan Reynolds just may be the most prolific player of comic book characters out there. He's been in the MARVEL realm as Hannibal King in BLADE: TRINITY, then over in the DC Universe he was Hal Jordan (aka The GREEN LANTERN), and now he's back over in the MARVEL realm as the character he's always wanted to play: DEADPOOL. If you're not familiar with DEADPOOL, get ready - because there's no other hero quite like him. He knows that he's a character in a comic book (or film), and frequently breaks the fourth wall to speak with the audience. He's also finds himself to be quite good-looking... in a 1970s kind of way. Here's your first look at Ryan in the #OfficialSuit.

David Milchard is a man of action. While unlikely and perhaps unintended, his connection to the DC Comics Universe is solid - having taken The Dark Archer's ARROW through the chest, only later to be resurrected as someone else on THE FLASH. Jumping into an entirely different fandom altogether, he also found himself working alongside Jensen Ackles' Dean Winchester for a pair of SUPERNATURAL adventures, and will soon face the unexplained once more in PARANORMAL SOLUTIONS, INC., a new series that's being touted as "THE X-FILES meets IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA meets THE STATE meets BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER but waaaaaay better." In many ways, Milchard is living what many kids dream of - the opportunity to play dress-up and make-believe on a daily basis, a continuously-busy and hard-working actor deeply embedded in Vancouver's non-stop creative scene. But David doesn't just do the auditions and wait for projects to arise - he often chooses his own adventures, making them happen with a regular crew of collaborators and co-conspirators. If you've seen him on-screen before, there's a good chance that it was in the massively-viral CONVOS WITH MY 2-YEAR OLD (since updated to CONVOS WITH MY 4-YEAR OLD). While there's much to be said about being a Producer/Director/Writer of a webseries that's already logged more than 61 million+ views, it's Milchard who stars as Coco, the titular child at the center of the series. Now, David goes even bigger with a leading role as Nate Ferraro in RUSSELL MADNESS, a new film from AIR BUD Entertainment and 20th Century Fox. I recently had a chance to speak with David - an interview that eventually became a series of... convos with my 2-year old and 5-year old.

Earlier this month, I shared a preview of BARBIE IN PRINCESS POWER, the 30th animated film to feature Barbie and her friends. For the first time in Mattel's 56-year history, Barbie is donning the cape and mask to become a real superhero (unlike the times she's dressed-up as licensed characters), and at the world's largest Toy Fair in Nuremberg, Barbie appeared as a live-action, high-flying character to launch the toy line associated with the coming film, and it's digital empowerment mission, Be Super. Check out some video from the launch...

In a perfect world, cinematic rights to all MARVEL Characters and Properties would be pulled under the current ownership of Disney so that the fans could be given what they want - a unified MARVEL Cinematic Universe. While that is unlikely to happen for quite some time due to pre-existing agreements with other studios, some heavy hitters are spread out and can't currently mingle on the big screen with their MARVEL cousins. Spider-man is over at Sony, while 20th Century Fox has the X-Men franchise and FANTASTIC FOUR. Taking some cues from what MARVEL Studios has been doing, Fox has done well with recent films such as X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, and now they're going back to the "4," throwing away the ok-to-mediocre movies of the mid-2000's for "a contemporary re-imagining of MARVEL's original and longest-running superhero team." The first trailer has arrived, and I'm curious what all of you think of it...
