Superboy Movie Reportedly In Development At Warner Bros.

The success of Joker seems to have lit a fire under Warner Bros. as they’re busy exploring all sorts of interesting takes on DC heroes. Over the last few days, we’ve heard that they’d like to make an adaptation of Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely’s All-Star Superman starring Jon Hamm, a movie set on Krypton about Superman’s family and are proceeding with a Joker sequel.

Now, we’ve gotten word from our sources – the same ones who told us Robert Pattinson had beaten out Nicholas Hoult for the role of Batman, and that Black Mask will be gay in Birds of Prey – that they’re exploring the prospect of making a Superboy movie based on the Conner Kent version of the character introduced in 1993’s The Return of Superman arc.

Said film will apparently be part of the ‘new’ Dceu, which will debut with The Batman and continue in Supergirl.

Titans Season 2 Episode 6

With nary a mention of him since his tease at the end of season one, Conner Kent swoops into Titans with a great episode that’s charming, sweet, and exciting for what it sets up for the series. Oh, and Krypto!

Picking up after the stinger scene from last season’s finale, “Conner” has a bare-assed Lex Luthor/Superman clone busting himself, and Krypto the Super-Dog out of Luthor’s Cadmus Labs. What follows is a road-trip of self-discovery as the young naïve boy learns his powers, taps into his anger, and hopefully develop into a good person.

I really commend Joshua Orpin on his performance as Conner. Playing a full-grown adult newborn is a minefield because it tiptoes along the lines of some very well-tread tropes.

New Superboy Photo Debuts Ahead Of Next Week’s Titans

While the cliffhanger to this week’s episode of Titans, “Deathstroke,” took our breath away and will force us all to spend the next several days wondering whether or not Jason Todd survived the fall, we can at least look forward to something positive coming from the next outing.

Believe it or not, we’ll finally get to meet Conner Kent Aka Superboy in the appropriately titled “Conner.” If you’ll recall, his bare ass was teased in the post-credits scene following the first season finale. But now, we’ll get to see actor Joshua Orpin suiting up as the iconic Kon-El.

In addition to this new image taken from the episode in question, so too can a synopsis be found below:

“Conner Kent and Krypto escape from Cadmus Labs. His search for the truth about his past leads him to Lionel Luthor and genetic scientist Dr. Eve Watson.”

Review: The Death and Return of Superman

  • Comicmix
The Doomsday Saga sprawled across the four monthly Superman titles for the better part of a year, clearly too long to successfully adapt as part of the DC Animated Universe series of films. When The Death of Superman was announced, everyone knew a second film would follow and sure enough, viewers were treated to The Reign of the Superman. The 1992-93 storyline was streamlined and revised to be fit into the animated continuity, so characters who weren’t around at the time, are here now.

Warner Home Entertainment has edited the two films together into a 2:46 and has released it as The Death and Return of Superman released in a variety of formats including the nifty 4K Ultra HD Limited Edition Gift Set. The 4K gift set comes with Superman: Doomsday as a bonus 4K disc.

As noted in reviews of the two films, it does a reasonable, but not perfect,

Deathstroke Targets The Titans In New Season 2 Promo

When it was first revealed that Esai Morales would be playing Deathstroke on Titans, some fans were probably saddened because it likely meant that we’d seen the last of Manu Bennett’s iteration of the character over on Arrow. But then again, it’s pretty difficult to produce a series featuring this particular super group without including the man who’s arguably their greatest nemesis, and there was no way to do that without another actor.

So, even though we’re only a few episodes deep into season 2, Morales has proven worthy of adding to Deathstroke’s legacy. What’s more is that he satisfies those out there who prefer Slade Wilson as being the white-haired guy who’s seen his share of battle. His performances have been just as nuanced as those of Bennett’s, not to mention he comes off as being just as intimidating and methodical.

Titans Showrunner Talks Bringing the Team Home in Season 2

Aaron Sagers Sep 19, 2019

Titans showrunner Greg Walker discusses Titans season 2, moving the action to San Francisco, and yes the very good boy Krypto.

As Jason Todd aptly put it, Titans are back, bitches. Following a season 2 premiere that wrapped up the Rachel/Trigon storyline, the season seemed to truly begin last week. The story skipped ahead three months, introducing a new direction for the show where Dick Grayson is training his young recruits, Donna and Kory are super-sleuthing, and Hank and Dawn are trying out the quiet life on a Wyoming ranch.

“We launched into a new chapter of Titans 2.0,” says Greg Walker, showrunner for the DC Universe streaming series. But whatever relative peace our heroes might have hoped for faded quickly as specters from Titans' past began to emerge. And this, said Walker, is where season 2 will continue, which becomes especially evident in this week’s episode, “Ghosts.”

Titans Season 2 Episode 1 Review: Trigon

What a difference a year makes. 

Titans Season 2 Episode 1 is not the season premiere the fans deserved. It felt like more of an epilogue of Titans Season 1 than a jumping-off point for Titans Season 2. 

From the get-go, we were thrown into boring scenes that dragged on for dear life as Trigon tried to turn every one to the dark side in the name of breaking his daughter's heart. 

I appreciate the need to flesh out Trigon, but what was the point if Rachel sent him away that quickly?!

Instead of going through the various nightmares of the team, there should have been a more significant battle between the father and daughter because it was ridiculous how quickly that was over. 

Maybe it was to show us just how powerful Rachel is now, but there should have been higher stakes -- perhaps even the death of one of the lead characters.

Why ‘Titans’ Season 2 Will Focus on Bruce Wayne Instead of Batman

  • The Wrap
Why ‘Titans’ Season 2 Will Focus on Bruce Wayne Instead of Batman
When “Titans” returns for its second season on Friday, the DC Universe series will add a slew of characters, none bigger than Batman himself. But the version who “Game of Thrones” alum Iain Glen will portray will exclusively focus on the Bruce Wayne side of Gotham City’s most famous vigilante’s double life.

“He’s still Batman,” showrunner Greg Walker told TheWrap. “We just don’t see him with the cape and cowl running around, and the bat signal.”

Batman is Warner Bros.’ most lucrative DC Comics character, one in which the company has been fiercely protective. The character has already toplined two separate film franchises, with Robert Pattinson set to lead a third, beginning in 2021 with Matt Reeves’ “The Batman.” Glen’s version of Wayne is just one of the ways that DC Comics-based TV shows are incorporating as much of Batman as they can into their worlds,

Dick Grayson Will Suit Up As Nightwing In Titans Season 2

Titans is about to return to DC Universe for its second season, and will continue to take Dick Grayson and his team closer to their depictions in the comics. Raven, Starfire and Wonder Girl are among those getting more traditional looks, and it seems change is ahead for Robin himself, too, as we’re hearing that the Boy Wonder will transition into Nightwing this season.

We Got This Covered has been told that Grayson will drop his Robin persona in season 2 and will officially become Nightwing, complete with a new costume. This intel comes to us via the same source who’s supplied us with accurate DC scoops in the past – for instance, Viola Davis is returning for The Suicide Squad and that Black Adam will be in Shazam! 3 (which Zachary Levi has since confirmed) – so we have no reason to doubt it.

Titans Season 2 Trailer: Meet Superboy and Krypto The Superdog!

We're less than two weeks away from the debut of Titans Season 2, and DC Universe has just dropped the full-length trailer.

There's a lot to unpack.

Let's start with Hank and Dawn, who quickly emerged as fan-favorites on Titans Season 1.

Minka Kelly and Alan Ritchson have been promoted to series regulars for Season 2, but their characters may not be together for much longer.

Dawn is still very much excited about the prospect of fighting crime, while Hank is against it.

It's an intriguing conflict for the couple, and one has to wonder whether Hank will be able to stay with the love of his life while she's putting her life on the line.

Then there's Kori who continues to be one of the most quick-witted characters on all of television.

But there's drama for her when she is seemingly kidnapped by a face from her past -- someone she remembers.

This Young Justice: Outsiders review contains spoilers.

Young Justice Season 3 Episode 24

Young Justice starts the final run of the season by closing out most of its Apokalips storyline. Who could have guessed that a Gorilla-Beast Boy vs. Business Granny Goodness showdown would be so much fun? Now that I typed it out, I'm sure the correct answer to that is "everyone."

As The Team headed off to Granny's Orphanage in space last week, Beast Boy also gathered a crew to go investigate some of Granny's Earthly holdings. Cyborg is figuring out his powers now that he's in control of them, so he's been scanning for possible locations for Halo and found a studio storage facility on the Goode World lot, so Beast Boy, Cyborg, Wonder Girl, El Dorado and Blue Beetle investigate.
