- "The upcoming, sixth season of Supergirl, which is set to premiere in 2021 on The CW, will be the show's swan song, according to a statement just released by the network. The drama series, which originated on CBS, was cancelled after one season on that network and headed to The CW, where Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) became a part of the "Arrowverse," a shared universe fronted by hit series Arrow and The Flash. Last season, Arrow ended, marking the first time an Arrowverse show had stepped away -- but with the introduction of Superman and Lois next season, the overall number of series will remain the same from 2020 to 2021." -Russ Burlingame

The long-elusive cut of the film will bring a lot of DC Comics' biggest superheroes to the big screen, including Henry Cavill's take on Clark Kent/Superman. With Zack Snyder's Justice League not set to debut until next year, fans are already getting hyped at the idea of seeing Cavill return to play the Man of Steel -- and they clearly want to see him do more. On Monday, the phrase #HenryCavillSuperman began to trend on Twitter, as fans shared their aspirations and wishes for Cavill's onscreen future." -Jenna Anderson
