'The Flash' Officially Crosses Over with 'Supergirl' in March on CBS

Variety cover shoot to celebrate producer Greg Berlanti’s superhero success last year.

It's finally official! The Flash will be paying a visit to National City and crossing over with 'Supergirl.' Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) will appear in an episode on Monday, March 28 at 8 p.m. on CBS. No plot details for meeting Kara (Melissa Benoist) have been released yet but the shows creators are estactic to have worked it out to make it happen. 
“We are so incredibly excited to announce something that we have dreamed of happening since we started making ‘Supergirl’ – The Flash and Supergirl are teaming up!” said “Flash” and “Supergirl” executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg. “We want to thank Grant Gustin for making the time to come visit (on top of his already immense workload) and all of the folks at CBS, The CW, Warner Bros. and DC for working this out. And finally thanks to the fans and journalists who have kept asking for this to happen. It is our pleasure and hope to create an episode worthy of everyone’s enthusiasm and support.”
 While Gustin is used to crossing over with the CW show it was spun off of, Arrow, and helped launch the superhero team-up series DC's Legends of Tomorrow, the Supergirl visit will be the first across television networks. A crossover has been speculated ever since 'Supergirl' was announced but CBS played coy while Berlanti welcomed the opportunity given a chance. Seems like the move will be a great boost to both legions of fans.  

'The Flash' is already the CW's highest rated show while 'Supergirl' has been a solid ratings draw at CBS. The crossover helps cement the DC television universe (from Berlanti Productions anyway) as truly interconnected. Other DC Comics-based shows like Gotham on Fox seem to occur in the past with a totally different tone and without metahuman characters. A crossover with Gotham seems unlikely unless the 'Legends of Tomorrow' travel back in time to meet with Detective Gordon. 

'Supergirl,' airs Mondays on CBS, stars Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh and Jeremy Jordan, David Harewood and Calista Flockhart. 


'The Flash' airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on The CW with Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh and Jesse L. Martin.

Fitness Women in Superhero Body Paint by J.M. Manion

J.M. Manion has long been a successful photographer covering the fitness and bodybuilding industry. He has photographed some of the strongest, well-defined physiques on the planet. He's also had a love of super-heroes and comic books. So much so that Manion began publishing his own comic book, Iron Siren Comics, featuring some of the fitness competitors he's covered as superheroes themselves. It's no wonder he sometimes incorporates superhero cosplay and body paint into photo shoots. Here are just some examples of his work:

Eliza Dushku Stars in Sci-Fi Short 'The Gable 5'

Kevin Tancharoen, the filmmaker that created the popular webseries, Mortal Kombat: Legacy, has returned to Machinima with his latest short film entitled The Gable 5 starring one of Joss Whedon's favorite action heroines, Eliza Dushku. The ties to the Whedon-verse are well intact as Tancharoen's brother-in-law is Jed Whedon, who co-produces along with wife Maurissa, the super spy drama Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.LD. on ABC. Dushku once again shows off her killer moves in this dark and action-packed sci-fi short film.

VIDEO: Happy Father's Day, Walter White!

Just in time for Father's Day, Screen Junkies in association with the online men's magazine, Made Men, are celebrating TV dads and they got R.J. Mitte who played Walt Jr. to Bryan Cranston's Walter White, the school teacher turned meth kingpin on AMC's Breaking Bad, to reminisce about what made Big Walt a great dad. Maybe he wasn't so bad after all.




WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

Mike Mignola and Adam Hughes Reunite for 'Hellboy & The B.P.R.D.: The Seven Wives Club' One-shot

This December, the Eisner Award-winning creative team of HELLBOY: KRAMPUSNACHT is reuniting for an all-new one-shot, HELLBOY &THE B.P.R.D.: THE SEVEN WIVES CLUB.


Written by legendary HELLBOY creator Mike Mignola and illustrated by acclaimed artist Adam Hughes, this ghostly yarn features Hellboy coming to the aid of a young girl whose ghost hunt in Savannah, GA goes terribly wrong. Things go from bad to worse, as they often do, when a visit to an abandoned medical school reveals sinister layers to a grisly long-ago murder.


“The Victorians used to read and tell ghost stories during the Christmas season,” said Mignola. “We might not be reading by candlelight these days, but I do like a good ghost story during the holiday season, especially when there are stolen cadavers, vengeful spirits, and art by Adam Hughes.”


“I’m dead thrilled to be collaborating with Mike again and flabbergasted as always that anyone wants to work with me twice,” said Adam Hughes. “This one’s so spooky, I’m onl…
