Supergirl’s The Flash Costume Teased

In February it was announced that Sasha Calle is the new Supergirl. In a very cute video, director Andy Muschietti gave the news to Calle she would be taking on the role for The Flash.

Now, we have a tease of what Calle’s costume will look like in the film.

Muschietti, who’s been dropping teasers a lot, on Instagram posted an image of some of the costume. The design evokes the style from Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel. The red on top is a departure from the current costume but one that has some roots in previous costumes for the character.

The Flash will send Ezra Miller’s character through the multiverse setting up the vision and direction for DC’s Cinematic Universe. On top of Calle’s Supergirl, Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton will don the cape and cowl as their versions of Batman.

Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One Delivers a New Look

Great moments are the foundation of a memorable film, and Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One is filled with them – as depicted in four new images released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC, the feature-length animated Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One will be distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital and Blu-ray next Tuesday, June 22, 2021.

New Flash Logo and Suit Teased

The Flash director Andy Muschietti went to Instagram to tease what we’ll be seeing on the big screen. The image included a new logo and hints and the suit that Ezra Miller will wear in the film. The film will be a big one for the DC Cinematic Universe as it establishes the multiverse on the big screen taking the concepts from their successful television franchises and expanding them. We know Michael Keaton’s Batman will appear along with Ben Affleck’s Batman. This is potentially going to be a make or break film for the floundering DC film franchises.

The Accidental President Explores the 2016 Presidential Election

As America began to try and come to terms with the surprising (and for many voters, horrifying) results of the presidential race of 2016, the subsequent rapid-fire speed of events and jam-packed news cycles meant that nobody would ever have the opportunity to truly and properly reflect on what exactly just happened — and how did it?

The Accidental President is British filmmaker/journalist James Fletcher’s quest for those answers. In it, he not only uncovers a detailed play-by-play from all angles on how it all went down, but also the state of America that led to the results, what the electorate was really motivated by, and how a former game show host with an elevated understanding of the media and entertainment was able to connect with voters from all walks of life and stage a takeover of Washington D.C. — whether he meant to or not.

Featuring an impressively diverse and balanced set of fascinating interviews from both sides of the aisle, Fletcher has taken what could have simply been a “Trump-bashing” film and has instead created something for a much larger audience: everyone. An educated examination of the most controversial election in modern history, and one that every future campaign – most notably the one currently in play – should study with an electron microscope.
