Preview For Season Two Of THE FLASH

Pardon me as I geek out just a bit – the CW just dropped the preview for the new season of THE FLASH premiering October 6th.

Regular readers of The Randy Report know I grew up voraciously reading comic books and I get all “geeky” over the recent spate of super-hero movies and TV shows. And let’s face it – who hasn’t imagined having some sort of super ability in their life 🙂

In this preview, we get out first look at new characters (some heroes, some villains), plus the news that folks from “another world” will be keeping Barry Allen (“The Flash”) busy in Season 2.

First Look At CBS’ Supergirl

As production begins on the upcoming CBS pilot for Supergirl (exec produced by Greg Berlanti), we get our first look at what the Girl Of Steel will look like in costume.

See the pic above of Melissa Benoist (GLEE, Whiplash) as “Kara Danvers/Kara Zor-el” in her costume designed by 3-time Oscar winner Colleen Atwood, who also designed the costumes for current DC Comics TV series Arrow and The Flash.

Looking to land in the CBS schedule for 2015/2016 season, the show will follow Kara as she comes to Earth as a 24 year old and learns to become the super-hero she’s meant to be.

In addition to Benoist, the cast includes Calista Flockhart (Ally McBeal, Brothers & Sisters), who will play Kara’s tough boss, Cat Grant; plus, Broadway favorite Laura Benanti in a major recurring role as Kara’s birth mother, “Alura.”

Of course, for the serious fans, you’ve got to love this bit of casting news: Helen Slater, who starred in the 1984 “Supergirl” feature, and Superman vet Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman) have been announced for future episodes but the roles have been kept under wraps.

Looking forward to it!

Squeeee!!!

Trailer: “Gotham”

The trailer for the upcoming new FOX TV series “Gothem” is here, and I have to say it looks very interesting.

I wasn’t sure how compelling a story that followed a young “Commissioner Gordon” would be, but apparently many of the Batman clan – friends and foes – are featured as their young selves, chronicling how they became who they are.

This Fall on Fox.  Definitely going to be watching.

The final trailer for the upcoming “X-Men: Days of Future Past” doesn’t disappoint.

From the clip description: The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past — to save our future.

Opens May 23.

Squee!!!
