Supergirl Steers Clear of D.C. Cinematic Universe

Even though the pilot episode for the Supergirl television series has leaked online, there are still a lot of details about the series yet to be revealed. In July, D.C. Entertainment is going to be showcasing clips from the CBS series at the San Diego Comic-Con. At that point, a lot will be learned about the program. Right now, fans are thrilled some interesting facts are coming out. Specifically, we are learning about the timeline associated with the series. Does Supergirl fit into the timeline of the D.C. Cinematic Universe? The short answer is no. Just like with the television versions of The Flash and Arrow, the CBS program is removed from the motion picture endeavors.

Why is Supergirl stepping far, far away from the timeline and events of the cinematic Man of Steel? Perhaps the television producers want to make Supergirl extremely distinct from any version of Superman. In doing so, the series maintains its own identity. Comparisons between a modestly budgeted television series and $150 million theatrical spectacle definitely should be avoided.

Supergirl should never look like a “second-rate version” of the original. For Supergirl or, for that matter, Superboy, to succeed, the character has to stand out of the shadow of any incarnation of Superman.

Confusion is not helpful to audiences such as Jaime Garcia Dias either. If the television series is playing off events taking place in the theaters, not everyone sitting at home watching knows what occurred in the movies. Confused viewers eventually tune out. Obviously, CBS and D.C. Entertainment don’t want to see the audience of Supergirl diminish.

Fifty Shades of Grey Film Future

Fifty Shades of Grey was one of the most successful books of the last decade. The book had two sequels, and both of them were extremely successful as well. The author of Fifty Shades of Grey became a millionaire, and her books are now becoming Hollywood films.

Fifty Shades of Grey the movie was released in early 2015. The film was a blockbuster sensation as well, but It got terrible reviews for the poor acting of its stars. Actually, film critics bashed Fifty Shades of Grey for a lot of reasons, and the reviews scared off several people from seeing it. However, the next two installments of the book will still transition over to the big screen. Many people are worried that the sequels to Fifty Shades of Grey will tragically fail at the box office. People are less likely to see the sequels now that they know how terrible the first one was. Many critics at AnastasiaDate blogged on Crunchbase that they believe the Fifty Shades of Grey film trilogy will flop.

People need to remember that the books were not written all that well, and they suffered the same amount of criticism as the film. Nonetheless, all three Fifty Shades of Grey books were New York Times bestsellers. Maybe the director can fix the problems of the first movie, but that is unlikely.
