We presumed that FOX's forthcoming 'Batman' prequel TV series, 'Gotham,' would next set its sights on casting a young Bruce Wayne, but its latest choice is far more surprising. Jada Pinkett Smith joined the series as a regular to portray an original 'Gotham' creation as gangster Fish Mooney, none other than future "Penguin" Oswald Cobblepot's boss!
Earlier today we caught a bit of what-if information on The CW's 'Flash,' TV pilot, gauging the fate of Grant Gustin's Barry Allen should the network not move forward with the 'Arrow' spinoff, but in the meantime, 'The Flash' keeps right on casting. 'Ed' star Tom Cavanagh is the latest to sign onto the cast, but does his role have any major DC ties?
Just when you thought 'The Flash''s TV future was all-but assured as an 'Arrow' spinoff, The CW has literally doubled down on its titular hero. The latest to join the scarlet speedster's 2014 TV updates is none other than TV's previous live-action 'Flash,' 1990 CBS star John Wesley Shipp! Of course, there couldn't be two Flashes at once...could there?
Given how FOX's upcoming Batman prequel TV series 'Gotham' had been burning through casting announcements over the past week, we expected a young Bruce Wayne to emerge as the very last. And while we might meet our new Batman-in-training over the weekend, we at least have the casting call to determine what qualities 'Gotham''s Bruce Wayne will have.
It only looks like Christmas outside on the east coast, but The CW has delivered early presents for fans of its most popular series, including 'Arrow,' 'Supernatural,' 'The Vampire Diaries,' its spinoff 'The Originals' and period soap 'Reign.' All five series have been renewed for additional seasons to carry into 2015!
This past weekend, we were blindsided to learn that FOX's forthcoming Batman prequel TV series, 'Gotham,' cast 'Southland' and 'The O.C.' star Ben McKenzie in the central role of Detective Jim Gordon, but now the new DC drama unveiled an even plumper portion of casting. Meet your new Oswald "The Penguin" Cobblepot, as well as young Bruce Wayne's loyal Alfred, Captain Essen, and Gordon's fiancée Barbara!
The ever-ravenous success of comic-adapted series like 'The Walking Dead' and 'Arrow' predictably sent TV networks in a scramble to adapt the most popular original projects, but count us genuinely excited for this one. Syfy has partnered with DC Comics to bring us a TV adaptation of modern-day civil war comic 'DMZ,' with some major producing power attached!
We're still no closer to knowing if 'Arrow''s forthcoming spinoff pilot for 'The Flash' will land its own CW series this fall, though its cast at least continues to fill out nicely. Up next for the DC drama is Candice Batton as the Flash's comic love interest, Iris West, along with Broadway star Carlos Valdes ('Once') as Cisco Ramon, otherwise known as "Vibe"!
