Title is not what it seems but rather about the latest shows on the CW network. We're all comic fans and love a good superhero movie. I was asked for my feedback on upcoming shows and here we go:
The Flash and Arrow are excellent shows and give an in depth insight on how heroes got their powers. I wasn't a fan of Arrow early on but came aboard after I got caught up on past seasons with NetFlix. Super Girl...well that's a whole new story and I've been watching it since day one. Originally it was going to be a movie but didn't garner enough responses and instantly went to cable TV, smart move.
First cpl of episodes were kind of weak as they tried to bring the masses up to speed on how she came to be. In a nutshell she was Superman's older cousin and sent to Earth along with him when Krypton was being destroyed. Her goal was to be his mentor as he grew up. Along the way her spaceship got knocked off course into the Phantom Zone and she miraculously emerged years later only to find her cousin Kal-El no longer needed her. Apparently in the Phantom Zone time doesn't progress. Pilot kicks off with her years younger than him and his reputation already established.
Marvel has went the way of airing movies before launching the big payola... The Avengers. They featured movies like The Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America and recently Ant Man. DC is taking a more subtle timely approach by airing its heroes on local channels I.e. The Arrow, Flash, Super Girl. etc.
Well 'Deadpool' is a free for all lol. Never was a comic/ gamer fan but I like the way they are portraying him in this movie. -James
