this Spring! Celebrate the 75thAnniversary of Captain America with a bang as heroes from across the Marvel Universe strap in for an explosive thrill ride!
From the outside it looks like any other remote small town. Only Pleasant Hill is anything but. This gated community has more than its fair share of secrets. Secrets that keep its residents locked away behind its walls. But the time has come for them to finally escape. As their revolt begins – why then are the Avengers trying to keep them inside? And what does it have to do with S.H.I.E.L.D.? What’s hidden at Pleasant Hill might be too much for even the Avengers to handle.
“It was really about trying to craft an event that was very ground-level, very character-driven, where everybody’s in close quarters in a locked-in space,” Nick Spencer said. "It was a perfect setting for us in the scale we wanted to give and the direction and the feel of the event.”
Kicking off this March in STANDOFF!: ASSAULT ON PLEASANT HILL ALPHA

ArrowDAREDEVIL SEASON 2 TRAILER: PUNISHER GOES “BANG” AFTER NY COMIC CON PEEK LEAKS10/12/15 @ 7:16 pm EST
villain Damien Darhk will appear on both DC's Legends of Tomorrow
and The Flash
this season, ComicBook.com has learned exclusively.
During an interview with ComicBook.com, the full text of which will run tomorrow, actor Neal McDonough, who plays the character, mentioned his appearances on the other CW superhero series, and The CW has confirmed the appearances.
Of course, with time travel playing a role on both The Flash
and Legends of Tomorrow
, it isn't totally clear that Darhk's story will all sync up with the current Arrow
plotline. It was actually the idea of going backwards in Arrow
flashbacks that brought it to McDonough's mind.
"You go back to the League -- I did an episode of Legends
last week -- and I look exactly the same in 1975 but you see he's not as confident and doesn't have such an agenda forty years ago as he does now," McDonough said. "So it's fun to play the different times, you know? Going back in time with Legends
, and The Flash
, with The Flash
, I'm just this crazy, fun, enjoy everything while I kill everybody type of character. It's just nuts."
He also seemed to imply -- but stopped short of actually saying -- that the centuries-old Damien may have some relationship with Legends of Tomorrow
big bad Vandal Savage.
"I'm enjoying the power that I have because it's my time," he said of his character. "It's not Savage's time, it's not Ra's al Ghul's time; it's Damien Darhk's time."
McDonough gave us a lot of insight to just what makes Damien tick, so check back this time tomorrow for the full conversation. The Flash
airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT and Arrow
Wednesdays at the same time, both on The CW. DC's Legends of Tomorrow
is expected along in January.

TOYMAN WILL MENACE CBS'S "SUPERGIRL"10/12/15 @ 1:56 pm EST
ABC is going back to Fantasy Island.
The network is reteaming with Sony Pictures Television for a potential third TV series based on the drama that ran from 1977-84, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The new take, which has received a script plus penalty order from the network, will change things up by replacing original star Ricardo Montalban's Mr. Roarke with a woman. The potential series will follow a brilliant, dynamic and sexy woman who runs a San Francisco-based company that provides clients with his/her most intimate, dark or outlandish fantasy.
Sheldon Turner (Up in the Air, X-Men: First Class) will pen the script and executive produce alongsideJennifer Klein via their Sony Pictures Television-based Vendetta Productions banner. Studio-based Josh Berman (Drop Dead Diva, The Mob Doctor) will serve as a supervising EP.

NYCC ’15: AFUA RICHARDSON TO WORK ON A NEW MARVEL ONGOING SERIES10/11/15 @ 2:47 pm EST
As DC Comics fans have suspected for months, classic Superman villain Toyman isindeed coming to CBS's "Supergirl."
"There's definitely going to be a connection between the villain Toyman and one of our heroes, played by Jeremy Jordan," Executive Producer Ali Adler revealed Sunday at New York Comic Con during the "Warner Bros. Television Takeover" presentation.
Jordan was cast in March as Winslow “Winn” Schott, an IT whiz at CatCo who just so happens
to share a name with DC's Toyman, who has fought both Superman and Supergirl over the decades. That, naturally, triggered immediate speculation that Winn might eventually travel down the path of villainy.
However, Sunday's announcement may suggest another
Schott takes up the Toyman mantle.
Also starring Melissa Benoist, Calista Flockhart, Chyler Leigh, Mehcad Brooks and David Harewood, "Supergirl" premieres Monday, Oct. 26, at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on CBS
