CBR TV has an interview with "Powers" co-creator Michael Avon Oeming and series star Susan Heyward. In the video, the actress reveals what attracted her to the role of Deena Pilgrim.

"I like the way she just tells the truth," said Heyward. "She gets really confused when the people around her aren't saying what's clear, what's obviously happening and this is obviously what we need to do to get to truth and to solve the case. So why are we even playing with, like, niceties and being politic. I love how unpolitic she is."

Deadline reported that "Arrow" and "Flash" executive producer Greg Berlanti is set to bring Archie and the gang to Fox. The show will be written by Archie comics writer and Chief Creative Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Aguirre-Sacasa is no stranger to the Fox network; he previously wrote for "Glee" before transitioning to Archie Comics series like "Afterlife With Archie." The show, titled "Riverdale," will feature the entire Archie cast, from Jughead to Kevin Keller, and there are plans in place to introduce Josie and the Pussycats as well.

Aguirre-Sacasa spoke to CBR about the series, hinting that it might have a touch of darkness to it.

"I love the idea -- and I've talked a little bit about this in "Afterlife" -- that over 75 years, there have been thousands and thousands of Archie stories told, but there's always a secret story that's happening in between the panels of these comic book stories," said Aguirre-Sacasa. "This show is going to explore that. The way we started in 'Afterlife,' learning stuff about Mr. Lodge, the way we explore the weirdness of Cheryl and Jason Blossom -- the Blossoms are going to be characters on our show as well... It's about going a little bit deeper and revealing things that have been bubbling there in the subtext, and making it a little more textual."


Fans eagerly awaiting an update on the next "Spawn" animated series got their wish when creator Todd McFarlane posted three pieces of concept art to his Facebook page. Character designs for supporting characters Sam and Twitch were revealed, as well as two background shots of a city street. The update confirms that progress is still being made on the series, but no firm release date has been announced.


The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Warner Bros. is looking for a female director to helm Wonder Woman's big screen solo debut. If this happens, it would only be the second superhero film to ever be directed by a woman; Lexi Alexander directed 2008's "Punisher: War Zone." Unless Marvel puts one of their female super heroes into one of their pre-2017 release dates, "Wonder Woman" will be the first super hero film to star a woman since 2005's "Elektra."
