It’s going to take a lot of hard work to become a serious crime fighter in Starling City.

New episodes of the CW’s Arrow air on Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. ET.
Today is the day that we celebrate Thanksgiving – the one day a year specifically put aside to look back on the previous few months and give thanks for everything in our lives that makes us happy. For fans of comic book movies, there is plenty to be thankful for.

It was fun watching Barry Allen zipping around and dodging Blackout’s lightning bolts on tonight’s episode of The Flash, but there’s a good chance everyone reading this wants to see just one thing: Flash and Arrow duking it out in next week’s crossover episode “Flash vs. Arrow.” Get a good look at the episode here.
Want to see a Superman action figure float up into space and then plummet down to Earth? Then it’s your lucky day, because a team in England have done just that.
It must be awesome to be a kid who loves movies in the current cinematic climate. There are literally dozens upon dozens of movie characters, superheroes and idols to fall in love with. A steady stream of new installments to the blockbuster world just keeps on providing even more of them too.
In two weeks, Barry Allen will finally come face-to-face with the man that murdered his mother when he was a boy: the Reverse-Flash, one of Flash’s most notorious enemies from the comics. The Flash has been teasing the man in the lightning since the pilot, so when will we find out who he really is?
There are only a few episodes left until The Flash head into midseason hiatus. Fortunately, there are plenty of Flash stories that are great for hardcore comic book fans, as well as newcomers to the world of DC. Here are the ones you should read.
If you’ve grown tired of re-watching the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer over and over again, you need to watch this fan-made version to get an idea of what the film would be like without the financial resources of Marvel and Disney. The end product: hilarious!
It was revealed last week that DC Comics was taking issue with the Spanish La Liga football club Valencia, claiming that their new logo was simply too similar to the internationally recognized symbol for Batman. While disputes like this often have a tendency to run on for weeks and months, it turns out that this one resolved itself pretty damn quickly.
Although Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy was a tremendous success, its last entry is still heavily debated among fans. However, now there’s a bizarre new theory concerning The Dark Knight Rises villain Bane that will paint the movie in an entire new light for everyone.
In DC Comics, The Flash’s powers can be surmised simply as “super speed,” but the reality is that the Scarlett Speedster’s abilities go far beyond that description. More than just being able to run really, really fast, there are many applications of this power set, and while we’ve already seen a few of them on display in the brand new CW series that has been airing this fall, the truth is that they are right now only scratching the surface.
Guggenheim says that the crossover has had an effect on the whole Arrow creative team, and that he officially takes back the comments he made about his show at the beginning of the fall. Here's how Arrow will change in a key way.
Barry’s dealt with many difficulties on The Flash, but tonight’s episode will feature his toughrest yet: losing his powers. While Team Flash races to reverse the effects, Iris and Joe will face down a dangerous Arrow enemy. Check out the electric preview!
Next week’s crossover between Arrow and The Flash will mix the casts of both shows over two night, but one character who will mostly be absent from the excitement is Laurel Lance. Don’t worry, there’s a good reason for leaving her out: character development.
Superhero costumes look unusual, but there’s one thing they have going for them: they fit near-perfectly on the wearer. You won’t see a costumed vigilante wearing anything baggy or loose-fitting while fighting crime. Obviously this is because a film’s costume designers take an actor’s measurements and creates the outfit to those specifications, but now it seems that technology is also playing a role.
Each year, we pull together a list of the shows we feel will have longevity moving forward. So far this season, there have been six shows that have shown signs of being frontrunners for longevity. Without further ado, here are the six programs we feel will still be on the air 5 years from now.
When you cast the likes of Sir Ian McKellen, Michael Fassbender ad Jennifer Lawrence to play Magneto and Mystique, respectively, you can understand why nabbing a high-profile star is important. So X-Men: Apocalypse needed to swing for the fences when nabbing the right actor to play Apocalypse, and they sure have made an interesting choice.
What I love about the clip is the moment where Ruffalo pretends that he’s going to Hulk out Not the kid’s reaction (which is equally priceless). Just the sight of Ruffalo beefing himself up.
This morning, news broke that Constantine will halt production after it fulfills its original 13-episode order. The news comes after Constantine’s ratings have failed to compete or surpass NBC’s veteran series Grimm. However, NBC’s decision may not totally be a bad thing.
Despite the fact that the actor has gone on to be in some incredible dramas – earning an Oscar for his dizzying work in David O. Russell’s The Fighter -- it’s likely that Bale will always be remembered for his time in the Batsuit, when he traded lines with fellow icons and reinvented how Hollywood views the modern superhero genre.
With Thanksgiving coming up this week, you might find yourself with some extra time to knock some binge-watching out of the way. Luckily, you can watch all of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and a few more series. Find out what all of them are here.
Despite DC’s intentions to go the un-Marvel route of keeping their universes separate across film and TV, The CW is the one place to find major costumed crossover action. But there are still things that both series are unable to do at this point in their run.
Ever since Marvel Studios officially announced Captain Marvel as part of their upcoming Phase Three slate, fans have been wildly speculating about who the company would hire to play their first female superhero. Emily Blunt is a name that has been tossed around a bit, the actress coming off an awesome action-heavy performance in Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow, but would it be a role that she would be interested in?
The Smallville faithful can rejoice as their beloved Allison Mack aka techie Chloe Sullivan from the long running drama is returning to prime time. And the move is not to any of the superhero shows that are flooding the networks. Mack is instead returning to the very dark FOX drama The Following starring Kevin Bacon.
While superhero films tend to get shafted at the Academy Awards, Guardians of the Galaxy was such a success that it would be in the Academy’s best interest to at least consider the film for the following categories. Seriously, Oscar officials, give this masterpiece a chance!
We may never be able to web-swing across New York City or lift cars with the proportionate strength of a spider, but thanks to science, It’s possible to crawl up walls like Marvel’s infamous web-slinger Spider-Man.
It’s safe to say that Awesome Mix Vol. 1 was one of the best parts of Guardians of the Galaxy, and if you’re looking for more music that helped shape the colorful sci-fi epic, you’re in luck. A new Awesome Mix has been revealed!
Nine episodes into its first season, Gotham is not a series that seems likely to keep major surprises in its utility belt, as it’s basically a prequel to a universe that’s been around for 75 years. But this is 2014, and nothing is sacred anymore.
The CW has released a batch of images from the second half of the crossover between Arrow and The Flash, titled “The Brave and the Bold,” featuring the mysterious boomerang killer and another reunion between Teams Arrow and Flash
Sometimes the internet offers its own brand of genius. It happened this week when an avid Youtuber mashed up shots from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy along with The Rembrandts, “I’ll Be There For You,” more commonly known as the Friends theme song to create the impeccable “Friends of the Galaxy.”
We’ve spent a great deal of this year celebrating the success of Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, but the time has come to look towards the future. With production scheduled to start in the first half of next year, X-Men: Apocalypse has begun its casting process – and already they’re eyeing some talented new actors.
Recent news has indicated that Mystique will be one of the most important characters in X-Men: Apocalypse, and now Jennifer Lawrence has given some details on what the shape-shifting mutant’s situation will be when we reunite with her in 2016.
Most people are familiar with the standard operating procedure when it comes to auditions in Hollywood. An actor prepares a scene or is given pages of a script to work from, sits or stands in front of group of people (director, producers, casting director, etc.) in a room, and performs in hopes of being seen as the perfect fit for a particular character or film. This has been the process used by studios and filmmakers for decades - but it's apparently not the method used by the folks over at Marvel Studios.
Batman's logo - in its many iterations over the years - is one of the most iconic symbols of all of pop culture and recognizable to just about everyone. That being said, a new challenge issued by DC Comics has sparked an interesting question: at what point does a silhouette of a bat become the Batman logo?
If Unbreakable taught me anything, it’s that across town, another boy suffered a similar accident, and now has the power to read minds. These two will meet on a battleground, and the fate of humanity rests in the balance.
Arrow is taking next week off, but they didn’t leave their fans empty-handed for Thanksgiving. During last night’s episode, the CW aired a promo for the first half of the highly anticipated crossover between Arrow and The Flash, and it is brutal!
When it comes to easter eggs, Arrow may never be able to top last week's use of the boxing glove. The episode as a whole could have been better but the reference to the DC superhero's most famous trick arrow was perfectly executed. This week didn't seem to stand a chance. No nod(s) to the DCU in “Draw Back Your Bow” could possibly compare, right? Well, not exactly.
Director James Gunn has already done his part shutting down rumors of Adam Warlock's cocoon appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy - saying that it was just a cool looking item that he picked at random - but what about the rumors of Beta Ray Bill? Fans have been saying for months that the horse-faced alien appears in the museum of The Collector - and now the director has responded to those talks.
Barry Allen and Oliver Queen have already hung out a few times, but two weeks from now, the two of them will have their first epic team-up. And if these new images the CW has released from the first episode “Flash vs. Arrow” are any indication, it’s sure to be full of fun and unusual weaponry.
Batman’s 75th anniversary may nearly be over, but the craze for the Caped Crusader won’t be ending anytime soon. In addition to live-action ventures, the LEGO Batman spinoff is also coming out in 2017, and it’s being set up as one of the biggest homages the Caped Crusader has ever gotten.
The Spider-Man films DID cross the $700 million mark globally, so while they aren’t Transformers movies, or Marvel movies (not yet, anyway), they aren’t exactly flops. The films bring in dollars. The problem might be how much the Spider-Man movies cost to make in the current climate.
Ant-Man may not be getting the same amount of attention right now as The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but Marvel is slowly working towards getting the general public familiar with the shrinking superhero. This includes a special project that’s coming out one month before the film’s debut.
We know it can be tough to keep track of all the new and upcoming network shows. So, we’ve devised a list of all of the major networks, mentioning each of the primetime shows that have begun airing or will air this season, also noting whether new shows have been picked up for additional episodes, canceled or renewed.
It's not entirely clear what's going on with Venom, and at this stage we don't even know necessarily which version of the goopy alien symboite we will see - but that's not stopping one of the WWE's wrestlers from throwing his hat in the ring as a candidate for the part.
With science fiction movies and TV series, we expect a certain amount of pandering or sexual suggestiveness aimed towards the audience. However, in science fiction, the beauty can be a mask for something more, unexpected, or sinister. That’s what makes it a delicious affair. These seven lovely ladies represent some of the genre's best examples.
It’s not smart to bet against a sequel, because Hollywood loves revisiting any idea that worked at least once. (Hello, Horrible Bosses 2!) Still, these 12 announced – or teased – sequels seem dead in the water, so pulling the metaphorical plug on them seems inevitable.
