Lucy Lane ‘Superwoman’ coming to Supergirl

Supergirl isn’t the only super heroine coming to CBS this fall. According to TVLine,
Lucy Lane (not yet cast) will debut in episode three of Supergirl. Lucy Lane is Lois Lane’s younger sister, Jimmy Olsen’s ex-girlfriend and possibly a future Superwoman. 

In the comics, Lucy’s relationship with Jimmy Olsen goes as far back as the 1950’s. They have a long history of dating. Her metamorphosis into the metahuman Superwoman wasn’t introduced until much more recently. Lucy’s greatest weakness has always been letting herself live in the shadow of her older sister Lois. No word if Lois will make an appearance on the show, but it’s likely she will be referenced.

Lucy’s introduction on Supergirl brings up some interesting questions: Will her presence in National City create a love triangle between Kara, Jimmy and herself? Will she be visiting for one episode or will she be a recurring guest character? Does her appearance on the show mean even more Superman characters coming? Lastly, will they tease her future as Superwoman, or will that be held back for a few seasons?

I reached out to a few friends on Twitter to get their feedback on Lucy Lane’s appearance on the show:

Batman v Superman Synopsis and First Look at New Batmobile

Warner Brothers has finally released the official synopsis for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice:

Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs.  And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.   

Fans of the DC franchise were treated to a teaser earlier in April which showcased Ben Affleck (Batman) confronting Henry Cavill (Superman) in the gritty, pulp noir version of Snyder’s Justice League universe. The teaser showcased fantastic voice overs from Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth) and Holly Hunter, each of whom clearly echo the tone of the Batman v Superman synopsis and the teaser.

First In-Depth Look at Affleck’s Batmobile

Attendees at the Licensing Expo today were treated to the first real look at Ben Affleck’s new Batmobile in Las Vegas. This iteration of the Batmobile weighs in at 7,000 lbs. and features an active anti-ballistic protection system and a stealth-capable, fully armored exterior. Steve Weintraub, Collider’s Editor-in-Chief took a fantastic video at the Expo of the Batmobile revving up it’s engine:
