Patty Jenkins Is Grateful She Didn't Direct Thor: The Dark World

Patty Jenkins Is Grateful She Didn't Direct Thor: The Dark World

If all went according to plan, Patty Jenkins would’ve been the first woman to direct a Marvel Cinematic Universe film six years before anyone else . The Wonder Woman director was set to make the Thor: The Dark World back in 2013 but left early in the process due to “creative differences .” Now, years later, she’s opened up about the experience and her thoughts shine a new light not just on...

RIP Lyle Waggoner, Wonder Woman's Stalwart Steve Trevor

RIP Lyle Waggoner, Wonder Woman's Stalwart Steve Trevor

Before Chris Pine headed to World War I for Diana of Themyscira in Wonder Woman (or donned a particularly choice tracksuit for Wonder Woman 1984), there was one definitive live-action Steve Trevor: Lyle Waggoner, who sadly passed away today at the age of 84.

THR reports that Waggoner died in Westlake, California, after a long illness. Although more widely remembered for his role as the...

A Costume-Less Batwoman Just Crossed a Line Batman Rarely Has

A Costume-Less Batwoman Just Crossed a Line Batman Rarely Has

Batwoman is a much darker show than the other CW superhero fare . It kind of makes sense—Bat stories often veer into gothic horror territory . But Batwoman frequently finds itself falling into what I like to call the “Canadian Torture Porn Trap.” Weird I know. Canada is not a place known for its torture porn! Yet I frequently find myself watching shows produced in Canada that are full of...

You Can Finally See What Would've Happened If a Phone Poll Hadn't Killed Jason Todd

You Can Finally See What Would've Happened If a Phone Poll Hadn't Killed Jason Todd

Jason Todd’s grim fate is one of the most infamous in superhero comics. Not just for the fact the boy wonder got brained by Batman’s most enduring foe, the Joker, or because he came back from it years later as the Red Hood. But instead, because it was a death mandated by an unprecedented reader poll—and now we have a look at what could’ve happened if it went the other way.

DC's Three Jokers Comic Will Revisit Batgirl and Red Hood's Most Devastating Traumas

DC's Three Jokers Comic Will Revisit Batgirl and Red Hood's Most Devastating Traumas

Both A Death in the Family and Batman: The Killing Joke  are infamous for featuring stories in which the Joker waged war against the Dark Knight by targeting other members of Bat-Family, like Jason Todd and Barbara Gordon, in ways that left them brutalized.

Over the years, Batgirl and the Red Hood have both worked through the trauma the Joker inflicted upon them, but in writer Geoff Johns...

Hot Damn, Look at The Batman's New Ride

Hot Damn, Look at The Batman's New Ride

You’ve seen The Batman’s new suit , but who would the Dark Knight be without a fancy set of wheels to prowl Gotham’s streets in?

This afternoon, Matt Reeves posted the first official photos of the Batmobile that Robert Pattinson’s Batman will drive in the upcoming film, and the ride is, in a word, subtle. Though it’s very much a Batmobile (note the bat-like fins), it’s also very much a car...

Black Lightning Said 'Gay Rights'

One thing the CW’s Arrowverse will always be able to lord over Marvel’s cinematic universe is the fact that it’s been featuring a number of different queer characters for years at this point, whereas Marvel Studios is only just now getting around to bothering to let audiences have a little queer representation , as a treat.

Black Lightning isn’t the first of the Arrowverse shows to put a...

Supergirl's 100th Episode Tackled Its Most Divisive Relationship

Supergirl's 100th Episode Tackled Its Most Divisive Relationship

From a 13-episode order on CBS to 100 episodes after a shift to the CW, Supergirl has come a very long way. Often an uneasy mess, but forever entertaining, the show has frequently served as the CW’s love letter to the Silver Age of comics. From Supergirl battling ice versions of her dead relatives to flying robot monkeys to any one of Lex Luthor’s countless evil plans —the show has made it...
