Entertainment Weekly has revealed new details on the upcoming seasons of Supergirl, Arrow, and The Punisher.
The Punisher star Jon Bernthal discussed how the series will discard the mystical and superpowered elements of previous Marvel and Netflix shows:
“We are stripping down every supernatural element. This show is different. It looks different. Frank is a character rooted in the most basic human emotions… He’s a comic-book character, but he doesn’t fly, he doesn’t have X-ray vision. He’s an unbelievably skilled soldier who’s been very, very angry and very, very hurt.”
Though Kara will be keeping her classic costume, for the time being, Supergirl lead star Melissa Benoist teased a temporary new outfit later this season:
“There is a different suit that I will be wearing at some point this season, but I won’t tell you when or to what capacity. It’s cool, though.”
Arrow star Stephen Amell discussed a potential storyline he would like to see involving Black Siren’s return:
“She looks exactly like Laurel Lance, she is Laurel Lance. Laurel Lance is the most famous dead person in Star City, so eventually, at some point, if she is reintroduced into public life, how do we unpack that? I’m excited for that. That’s the dynamic I think could be interesting.”

6 Superheroes Who Deserve Animated Shows
One of the greatest tools in the craft of filmmaking is the often overlooked art of animation. Animation is a tool that can bring any drawable creation to life in vibrant ways without the limitations of a budget or having to find a way to pull something off in real life. Animation can be as far out and unhinged as it wants to be.
The art of the comic book is very similar to that of animation. Comics often show heroes doing things that could never happen in the real world. As much as live action can capture a lot of these moments, animation allows for much more freedom. Animated superhero shows have been popular for quite some time now, and some have even received critical acclaim for their depiction of comic book characters and honoring the source material.
With all this in mind, I decided to write about 6 heroes who deserve their own animated shows. Click Next to get started!
