The DC Daily Planet: Casting Call

My First Book of Girl Power Julie Merberg DC Comics Downtown Bookworks 2014 2

Happy Halloween, caped crusaders! I know masked justice belongs in the stark shadows of Gotham’s alleyways, but if you’re wandering about masked in broad daylight today, leave me a comment with your costume!

Supergirl Helen Slater 1984 Tristar Pictures

CBS has issued a casting call for the upcoming Supergirl series, featuring descriptions for both 24-year-old Kara Zor-El and her adoptive sister, Alex Danvers. If you’re between 22 and 26 and you’re in the neighborhood, maybe you should swing by!

Everyone’s talking movies this week. The newest buzz is that Wonder Woman’s standalone flick will take place in the 1920’s, beginning on Paradise Island and featuring Diana’s first trip to Man’s World, after a human man stumbles across the Amazons. Diana in a world full of flappers and suffragettes? Count me in! I have a weakness for period films set in the Roaring Twenties, and, frankly, I’m a lot more interested in that storyline than I am in a potential Justice League one.

Wonderwoman Bombshell Personally, I’d take a clue from the DC Bombshell Wondie, and set it during WWII — but then I’d spend all my time wishing she could cross over with Cap, so never      mind.

Still, that’s mere rumor and conjecture. What we do know is that the WB is seeking a female director for the film. Now that would be a step in the right direction!

These are cute: cookies, cupcakes, and cakes inspired by WB/DC properties. Great for your next superhero-themed party!

(What do you mean, you don’t throw superhero-themed parties? Obviously you should start.)

Christopher Nolan won’t be working on DC movies anymore, and I’m pretty okay with that.

That’s my DC news for the week! Don’t forget to hit us up here or on Twitter with your awesome heroic (or villainous, I don’t know your life) costumes, and Happy Halloween!
