by     Posted 4 days ago

superhero-movie-release-dates

There’s no denying that the most popular genre around these days is that of the superhero movie.  Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy proved that comic book adaptations could be just as dramatic and heavy as non-genre films, Marvel Studios jumpstarted a massive interconnected series of superhero movies that were significantly more colorful and humorous, and audiences have been turning out to both kinds of superhero movies in droves.  With every major studio now working to turn its own comic book properties into the next big thing, it’s sometimes tough to keep track of what’s coming out when, who’s in it, and how it fits into the overall picture.  Not to worry, though, because we here at Collider have you covered.

After the jump, you’ll find a comprehensive guide of superhero movie release dates for every major comic book adaptation on the calendar, going all the way up to the year 2020.  Moreover, we’ll be updating this guide regularly with the most current information, so if you’re ever looking for the latest news on a specific film, you can come right back here for a quick overview.

THE FLASH Recap: “Fastest Man Alive”

by     Posted 6 days ago

the-flash-recap

The Flash got off to a great start in last week’s premiere, but time will tell if it has the legs to go the distance.  If you doubted Grant Gustin’s ability to portray Barry Allen, or the new-found powers that give the title hero his meta-human status, then you fell into lock-step with this episode’s central theme.  Yes, it seems that doubt is currently The Flash’s biggest foe, since Barry is rather green when it comes to fighting other super-powered foes. He’s just beginning to learn the limits of his powers, but The Flash is quickly establishing its own identity; there’s no doubt about that.

Rick Cosnett Talks THE FLASH, Trading Quips with Grant Gustin, Balancing Drama with Humor, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, and More

the-flash-rick-cosnett-interview

Viewers were introduced to Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) during Season 2 of the hit CW drama series Arrow, in a way that made the character both likeable and intriguing, and it was easy to see why he immediately got his own TV show.  With The Flash having made its debut to huge ratings, Barry is now getting his own backstory and mythology and villains to fight, while also playing into the bigger DC universe and, at times, characters will cross back and forth between the two shows.

During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Rick Cosnett (who plays seemingly perfect Detective Eddie Thawne) talked about how he won the acting jackpot with this show and role, making his flawless character likeable for audiences, how deeply he delved into his character’s story, being the unexpected foil for the hero, the easy chemistry he has with Candice Patton (who plays Iris West), keeping his character’s background a bit of a mystery, balancing the light moments with the really heavy moments, and the feedback he’s already hearing from fans.  He also talked about how much fun he had playing Dr. Wes Maxfield on The Vampire Diaries, and that he would have liked to have seen what would have happened, if Dr. Wes had been turned into a vampire.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.

TV ratings for Tuesday, October 7th are in, bringing both good and bad news for superhero fans.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

New Trailer For THE FLASH Teases Future Episodes and Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold

by     Posted 13 days ago

the-flash-trailer-season-1

The Flash premiered tonight on the CW and, if your interest as readers is any indication, it went over rather well.  It also doesn’t hurt that our own Dave Trumbore was incredibly pleased by the quality of tonight’s episode in his recap.  After the show aired we got a glimpse of a minute-long teaser trailer that gives us a look at the upcoming episodes of the season and features footage of Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold (a nice followup to the initial images we just shared).  I’ve gotta say, this new teaser is light years better than the initial trailer for the show we got over a month ago.  Not sure if it’s my thing but it’s much more cinematic.

The show also stars Grant GustinDanielle PanabakerCarlos ValdesJesse L. MartinCandice PattonTom CavanaghRick Cosnett, and John Wesley Shipp with Robbie AmellWentworth Miller, and Clancy Brown slated as guest stars.  The Flash airs on the CW on Tuesdays at 8/7c.

THE FLASH Series Premiere Recap: “City of Heroes”

by     Posted 13 days ago

the-flash-recap

The excellent premiere of The Flash deserves better than speed puns, so let me just say it plainly: This show is really, really good.  And not just The CW good, but good across the board.  “City of Heroes” nails its comicbook source material, brings home the dramatic feels, and freshens up the action scenes in a fun new way.  So what’s the downside?  The premiere was so strong that it has set an incredibly high bar for the rest of the series’ episodes going forward. That not only puts the pressure on the network’s brother-show Arrow, but other small-screen ventures into the world of superheroes.  This is the way you kick off a signature series.

First Images of Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold in THE FLASH

With The Flash premiering tonight on the CW it was expert timing on the part of DC Comics’ CCO Geoff Johns to let loose some images of Prison Break star (and Stoker screenwriter) Wentworth Miller as the villainous Captain Cold (aka Leonard Snart) on the upcoming show.  I haven’t read the comics so this look doesn’t really let me down or lift me up, but it seems very much in keeping with the established aesthetic of the program so far (if you haven’t seen the trailer here it is).

The show also stars Grant GustinDanielle PanabakerCarlos ValdesJesse L. MartinCandice PattonTom CavanaghRick Cosnett, and John Wesley Shipp with Robbie AmellWentworth Miller, and Clancy Brown slated as guest stars.  The Flash premieres on The CW tonight October 7th at 8/7c.  Hit the jump to check out the Captain Cold images of Wentworth Miller.

During this exclusive interview with Collider, actor Jesse L. Martin (who plays Barry Allen’s surrogate father, Detective Joe West) talked about which of his friends is the most excited about him being a part of The Flash, his insistence on reading the script before agreeing to the role, that his prior knowledge of The Flash ended with knowing he was a guy who could run really fast (oh, and having the underoos, as a kid), what he thought of the suit the first time he saw it, how excited he is to learn what comes next with each script, the dynamic of Joe’s relationship with Barry, and getting to work with John Wesley Shipp, the original Flash who now plays Barry’s father.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.

Producer Marc Guggenheim Talks ARROW Season 3, the H.I.V.E. Storyline, New Villains, THE FLASH Crossover, and More

In what has become typical Arrow fashion, the action is big and the personal drama is even bigger.  When the show returns to The CW on October 8th, crime in Starling City is at an all-time low, thanks to the Arrow (Stephen Amell) and his team, and Oliver thinks he can finally balance being both the Arrow and Oliver Queen.  But of course, that doesn’t last long, and Team Arrow will face new villains and still be feeling the ramifications of the events of last season.

During this recent interview to talk about what’s to come for Season 3, executive producer Marc Guggenheim talked about how this season’s premiere is a good jumping on point for new viewers, that they already have the whole season planned out, Oliver and Felicity’s (Emily Bett Rickards) first date and first kiss, what Ray Palmer is planning, whether he might ever shrink himself and wear a costume, what Brandon Routh brings to the show, the exploration of the theme of identity, Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) as part of Team Arrow, what Thea (Willa Holland) has been up to, when the H.I.V.E. storyline might reappear, and the cross-over with Arrow and The Flash.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.

In the upcoming CW drama series The Flash, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) is struck by lightening and wakes up after nine months in a coma to learn that the accident has given him the power of super speed.  But being a superhero and facing danger isn’t easy when there’s a city full of heroes and villains with extraordinary abilities.

During The CW night of the PaleyFest Fall TV Preview, executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg were joined by actors Jesse L. Martin (“Detective Joe West”) and Candice Patton (“Iris West”) to talk about how the show came about, which comics they’re drawing from, how similar this Iris West is to the comics, the dynamic between Iris and Barry, what Detective West is like as Barry’s surrogate dad, season-long storylines versus series-long storylines, that time travel is a big part of The Flash’s world, Easter eggs, love interest cross-overs, having such a diverse cast, and having 20 days of production for the pilot.  Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

New THE FLASH Trailer Tugs at the Heartstrings and Reveals a Glimpse of a Major Antagonist

by     Posted 46 days ago

the-flash-trailer

The recently released trailer for The CW’s new superhero series The Flash received some mixed reactions (on this particular site anyway).  Today’s new cut will likely have the same result since it leans heavily on the oftentimes melodramatic emotional hook that’s at the heart of beloved and belittled CW shows alike.  Much like its sister series Arrow, which is at its best when striking a balance between intense action and soap opera schmaltz, The Flash doesn’t appear to be shy about giving the network’s dedicated fandom its just deserts.  You can bet that we’ll have weekly recaps for both shows once they return to the small screen this fall.

Hit the jump to check out The Flash trailer and to play “Spot the Villain.”  The show stars Grant GustinDanielle PanabakerCarlos ValdesJesse L.
