  1. Alias‘ Victor Garber Joins The Flash In a Fiery New Role

    There's a storm coming.

    I would just like to point out that CW's The Flash is going to have Captain Cold, Heat Wave, and Firestorm. C'mon, guys, invite Mr. Freeze along. You leaving him out is just making it weird at this point.

  3. Thor’s Jaimie Alexander On Wonder Woman: It’s Embarrassing For Me As A Woman

    Great Hera!

    Thor star Jaimie Alexander's name is one that pops up frequently on dream casting for Wonder Woman, and if you saw her kicking butt as Sif, you know why. But while the actress herself would love to play Diana, she's not sure she actually would if asked. Why? Well because no one treats Wonder Woman with respect, of course. Click ahead to see the awesome truths Alexander laid down recently about women in superhero properties.

  4. Jennifer Garner Will Do An Alias Reboot On One Condition

    I Want to Believe

    The year 2001 was a big one for both Jennifer Garner and J.J. Abrams. The duo teamed up for the flashy spy drama Alias on ABC and neither could have predicted it would catapult them to stardom. They'd both had a significant amount of work on their resumes already but Alias was the perfect storm. Could it be time to revisit the property? Garner was recently asked just that and didn't turn her nose up at the idea. On the contrary, she said she'd totally be done...on one condition.

  5. 10 Non-Costumed, Non-Powered Female Heroines

    Power Grid

    Now that March is nearly upon us -- less than 24 hours away, actually -- it's obvious that many of us are excited about The Hunger Games coming to theaters in just about three weeks. But one of the major elements of Suzanne Collins' trilogy is how exceptionally ordinary the protagonist, Katniss Everdeen, is. She's just a normal girl, thrown into a horrible situation, and then she handles the crap out of it. She sends a message that fantastical superpowers aren't all that necessary if there is a battle afoot. Even an epically huge, life-or-death battle that concerns the welfare of a country, a planet, or even a universe. This week, we're talking about Katniss' predecessors -- superheroines of geekdom who don't wear costumes, nor do they have superpowers. Some of them might be barely educated or inexperienced, some of them are wildly smart. But what they all have in common is that if you have them on your team in a fight, you will win. Hands down.

  6. Plenty of Room for Luke Cage in AKA Jessica Jones

    Excelsior!

    Among the numerous television projects that Marvel has in some stage of the "getting done" process, there is AKA Jessica Jones, a series about the eponymous superheroine-turned-private detective from the comics series Alias. (No relation to the television show of the same name, in case you were confused.) Melissa Rosenberg has been tapped to adapt the concept, and she's no stranger to either adaptation or genre work. Her writing credits include Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, The O.C., Dexter, a few Twilight movies and even the infamous Birds of Prey television adaptation. Jessica Jones is an awesome character in and of herself, but her role in the Marvel Universe also includes a feisty relationship with Luke Cage, AKA Power Man, that eventually leads to love, parenthood, and marriage, in that order. As supporters of greater diversity in the comics world and in the parts of the comics world that get translated into other media, we'd be remiss if we didn't tell everybody excitedly that Rosenberg has confirmed that Luke Cage is definitely included in her vision for the series.

  7. Disney-ABC Teams Up With Netflix and Amazon to Stream Alias, Lost, and More

    Almost Totally Excellent

    Netflix continues to step up their streaming library: A new deal was announced with Disney-ABC this morning, and now several shows that have appeared on ABC, ABC Family, and the Disney Channel will stream on Netflix. But that's not all -- another deal with Amazon Prime will give their streaming service the same shows, adding 800 episodes to their library. Not to be outdone, the deal with Netflix will make new episodes available 30 days after they air on network TV. So, this morning, Netflix and Amazon looked at each other and said, "Well played. Well played, indeed."

  8. J.J. Abrams May Helm Spielberg-Inspired Film

    Right now, you could argue that we're in a new age in filmic storytelling, and that science fiction has been brought into the limelight in way that it hasn't enjoyed in years. One of the people who brought that shift toward mainstream is J.J. Abrams. A director who took on Star Trek in 2009, effectively retconned it, and made it a good movie with widespread appeal. Well, it looks like Abrams might be up to something new and with a little help. Sources are telling New York Magazine's Vulture blog that Abrams is currently working on a project that will, in some way, shape, or form, involve a certain Steven Spielberg and pay homage to his early work.
