smallville-season-8

All ten seasons of Smallville will be on Hulu starting Saturday, October 1st, this will be the first time ever the series has been available to stream. Check out the video for a quick peek.

Smallville, which starred Tom Welling as a young Clark Kent before he became Superman, ran from 2001 to 2011. Its first five seasons aired on The WB before that network merged with UPN to create The CW, where the series finished out its ten-season run over five additional seasons.

While Netflix has become the streaming home for most CW series in recent years, the deal between the two companies was struck after Smallville ended, allowing Hulu to secure the streaming rights for the series from Warner Bros, who produced and own Smallville.

In the meantime, Superman will be returning to TV next month during Supergirl: Season 2. The CW released a trailer earlier today showing the Super duo teaming up for the first time, check it out below.

 

Batman return of the Caped Crusaders

Batman return of the Caped Crusaders

For the better part of this year (2016), Adam West and Burt Ward had been telling fans of the 1960s hit TV series Batman about an upcoming project they have been working on. Rumors abounded as to what it could be, and people guessed anything from cameo appearances to a new television series.

Last week the news hit that the original Batman and Robin (Dynamic Duo) would team up once more for an animated film, also involving Julie Newmar as Catwoman. We now have the official trailer to give us insight into the exciting new project.

The trailer starts off with a regrouping of the Caped Crusader’s most famous villains: the Riddler, the Joker, Penguin and Catwoman. Batman and Robin team up to stop them, chasing them around in the Batmobile before stumbling into trouble.

Earlier this year, West promised the film would be the Batman and Robin we remember from the 1960s TV series.

Based on the trailer, he wasn’t lying. The film looks like it has the same camp as the show, complete with punchy title cards and comically unnecessary labels. 

Batman: Return of the Caped Crusader will be available on Digital HD format October 11 and Blu-Ray Combo Pack November 1 2016.

Falling Skies

Falling Skies stars Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Drew Roy, Will Patton, and Maxin Knight as a group of survivors following a deadly alien invasion. The series premieres on TNT on Sunday, June 19th at 9/8c.

Here’s the synopsis for the series:

FALLING SKIES opens in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated.

The series combines stunning visual effects and personal human stories about triumph and survival in the most devastating circumstances.

Falling Skies stars Wyle as Tom Mason, a Boston history professor whose family has been torn apart. Bloodgood also stars as Anne Glass, a pediatrician who works with the survivors. Will Patton (Armageddon, TNT’s Into the West) plays a fierce leader of the resistance, Weaver. And Roy plays Mason’s eldest son and fellow- fighter, Hal.

Torchwood Miracle Day

Synopsis

“One day, nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep aging – they get hurt and sick – but they never die.

The result: a population boom, overnight. With all the extra people, resources are finite. It’s said that in four months’ time, the human race will cease to be viable. But this can’t be a natural event – someone’s got to be behind it. It’s a race against time as C.I.A. agent Rex Matheson investigates a global conspiracy. The answers lie within an old, secret British institute. As Rex keeps asking “What is Torchwood?”, he’s drawn into a world of adventure, and a threat to change what it means to be human, forever.”

Smallville Booster

Synopsis: After everything that happened with the VRA, Lois (Erica Durance) tells Clark (Tom Welling) it’s best to make Clark Kent forgettable and awkward so people don’t suspect he’s The Blur. However, the two are stunned when a fame-hungry superhero from the future, Booster Gold (guest star Eric Martsolf), sweeps into town and begins making saves and posing for press ops, completely winning over the city of Metropolis. Booster begins his campaign to take The Blur’s place as the ‘World’s Greatest Superhero’ and tries to charm Lois into writing a story about him, but she’s not having his antics and begins her own campaign for The Blur. During one of Booster’s saves, an alien weapon in the form of a scarab falls from a truck and fuses itself to a boy named Jaime Reyes (guest star Jaden Brandt Bartlett), turning him into the Blue Beetle. Unfortunately, Jaime is unable to control the suit and Blue Beetle starts attacking Metropolis.

The episode was written by Geoff Johns and was directed by Welling.
