We now have our first look at Brandon Routh is suited up as Kingdom Come Superman from 1996 in this first-look photo from The CW. Routh who starred in SUPERMAN RETURNS (2006) is back in the cape once again as a greying older version of the Man of Steel for The CW’s upcoming CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS crossover event.
The different iteration of the symbol on his chest is that of the the compromised, world-weary version introduced in the landmark DC Comics saga KINGDOM COME . Routh will portray both Clark Kent and Superman along with still portraying Ray Palmer/The Atom on DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW in the annual CW Arrowverse crossover event.
Routh won’t be the only one flying up in the skies like a bird, like a plane, SMALLVILLE star Tom Welling as well as Tyler Hoechlin, who has been the Superman for the Arrowverse shows on The CW since being introduced in SUPERGIRL.

After only airing one episode of the DC Universe streaming platform, SWAMP THING has been cancelled by the streamer.
The potential reason for the cancellation is that the DC Universe is being reevaluated following the completion of AT&T acquisition of Time Warner as WarnerMedia has put an emphasis on the launch of a new streaming platform. With that reevaluation there have been questions how DC Universe fits into those plans.
Swamp Thing was the third live-action series to launch on DC Universe, following Titans, which has been renewed for a second season, and Doom Patrol, which is awaiting word. Upcoming on the service is new drama series Stargirl.
Written by Mark Verheiden and It co-writer Gary Dauberman, Swamp Thing centered on CDC researcher Abby Arcane. When she returns to her childhood home of Marais, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus, she develops a surprising bond with scientist Alec Holland — only to have him tragically taken from her. But as powerful forces descend on Houma, intent on exploiting the swamp’s mysterious properties for their own purposes, Abby will discover that the swamp holds mystical secrets, both horrifying and wondrous — and the potential love of her life may not be dead after all.
What do you think about this news?
Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emanicipation of One Harley Quinn) has officially wrapped up its principal photography. The film from what we have been told is shaping up to be a very different movie to what most of us expected. First of which as via the title the film will primarily focus on Harley Quinn which is unlike the books and will not at all feature Barbara Gordon.
We now have just gotten a new logo for the film and this is showing part of how Warner Bros. is for sure hoping that this will be a big hit and Harley Quinn’s involvement is bound to generate a great deal of interest. Check out the new logo and let us know what you think.
We recently got a first official look at Jack Bannon as the younger incarnation of Alfred Pennyworth, best known as Batman’s butler and guardian surfaced and now it is being reported that the upcoming series on Epix has added two more key players.
Deadline is reporting that Emma Paetz (Gentleman Jack) will take on the series regular role of Martha Kane (eventual wife of Thomas and mother of Bruce, Martha Wayne); while Jessica Ellerby (Lovesick) will recur as The Queen. No full details on this character have been provided, but there’s a chance she’ll be a take on Green Arrow villain Isabel Rochev.
Now much still is not known yet about the R-rated origin story of the former British intelligence agent , but it has been confirmed that Alfred will team-up with a young Thomas Wayne to form a security company in 1960s London. No established Batman baddies will appear, but the show is expected to feature “archetypal villains and classic villains of British literature.”
Doom Patrol arrives everywhere on the DC Universe streaming platform on Friday, February 15th but the resident super villain, Jay Washington had the opportunity to screen it and is here with his official review.

When it was announced back in August 2017 that Disney would be ending its contract with Netflix, everyone knew it was only a matter of time before the next wave of Marvel Studios films would no longer be available on the streaming platform. During the Disney first quarters call it was revealed that Captain Marvel will be the first Marvel Studios film to premiere exclusively on Disney+(plus) Disney’s streaming platform. It was not revealed when exactly Captain Marvel would premiere on the streaming service as it only hits theaters next month on March 8.
One thing Bob Iger did confirm is that the company has no plans to adjust the theatrical release window of its movies to get them on Disney+ any sooner. Even though Captain Marvel will mark the official end of new Marvel films on Netflix, it’s unclear yet what will happen to current MCU films on the service. Netflix currently offers subscribers access to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Ant-Man and the Wasp.
