    Between Flash, Arrow, and this trailer, how many people know the main character's secret identity? 30-40?

    That trope is nearing its end.

    Well, there's still the intention that this guy used to be classic Jimmy Olsen who worked at the planet and took pictures of Superman while working with Lois Lane. I don't think they really needed to change his race just for the sake of changing his race, but even then I could live with it if the guy was actually acting like Jimmy Olsen and there was a hint of classic Jimmy in there :sad:.

    I guess the intention is that all the stuff he went through with Superman and the Planet made him into this tough, alpha-male like character, but even then I have a hard time believing Mehcad Brooks in his younger years ever looked or acted like Jimmy Olsen :ack:.

    Well, so long as Kara after the pilot isn't as bad about keeping her secret identity as The Flash is, and close to how well Oliver kept his, I can probably live with it :sweat:.

    I still have a hard time believing Jaleel White played Urkel, especially after seeing TJW playing him in Key & Peale.

    What's our stance with talking about the content of the leaks?

    So much I'd love to hear about this, but TZ is usually against these convos.

    The fact no one can talk about seems to have stopped this thread =(.

    You could talk about it generally. We have before on other threads. Spoiler stuff needs to be tagged as such.

    The more they introduce DCU villains or characters, the more nervous I get. I would've figured Lord for Arrow or the LoT series, but this is fine too.

    Red Tornado could mean TO Morrow I hope this means we could see more non alien JL villains in this show.

    We're running out of DC heroes though.

    One thing that's already bugging me about this show is how they've opted to pronounce the titular character's name as "KAH-ruh". It's "KAIR-uh". Kara Zor-El. "KAH-ruh" just doesn't sound right to me, it's right up there with M. Night Shaymalan (sp?) changing Aang's name to "Ong", but that's admittedly just a minor nitpick.

    One thing I've come to expect from live-action DC productions is that they're not going to be consistent with pronunciations of certain names, either with the comics or with themselves. Hence Arrow using two different pronunciations of "Ra's" and "Belle Reve" :p.

    I also remember moments in Smallville where they pronounced Shayera's name wrong :rolleyes:.

    And in casting news:

    Britt Morgan (True Blood) will be playing Livewire :cool:.

    I wonder how Hellgrammite will actually look like on the show. The only villains announced so far I'm really looking forward to seeing are Maxwell Lord and Reactron.
