Brace yourselves, a fifth Sharknado movie is happening. Greg Berlanti’s latest DC superhero show could find a new home on the CW. Bryan Singer discusses the tone of the new X-Men TV show. Plus, see the Rangers in action in a new Power Rangers poster, and new pictures from Powerless, The Magicians, and Iron Fist. All the Spoilers!

The Sharknado is coming for all of us — and also, more specifically, to Syfy later this year. The fifth (fifth!) entry in the saga will see an unprecedented global Sharknado develop, and only series regular Fin Shepard and his family can save the world from it. [/Film]
Transformers: The Last Knight
The film’s official Facebook page has shared a new synopsis for the film.
The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).
It appears the film has a new logo that’s even more retro than its previous one, if this Kirby-as-hell art department shirt from production is anything to go by.

The runtime is 135 minutes, according to the Berlin Film Festival‘s program.
The Rangers and Zords fly into action in the final — and perhaps actually best — poster for the film.

Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa tells The Wrap that there’s a strong chance that the show could introduce a new live-action incarnation of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch:
We could [see her in Season 1]. As I say, never say never, but it’s certainly within the realm of possibility.
The one thing that’s tricky is, there will always be a genre, mystery element to this show, but it’s hard to introduce a supernatural element. I think there’s a way to introduce Sabrina in a way that’s not supernatural, but she is, she’s a witch.
Delightful news, but perhaps not too surprising, considering that the CW and Archie Comics are looking to make more TV shows together, including one based on the beloved teenage witch. Could Riverdale stealth-launch a Sabrina show?
The pilot for Greg Berlanti’s superhero series based on the classic black DC character is no longer being made for Fox according to Deadline — and may in fact actually end up moving to the CW and becoming part of the Arrowverse. Even more CW superheroes for everybody!

Bryan Singer discusses the family aspect of the show that differentiates itself from Legion and the X-Men movies.
I’ll tell you, it’s very different from [Legion], visually, and yet it’s very different from the X-Men films as well. It’s mostly about a family. It’s a family drama. There’ll be effects, powers, and things like that. But at its heart, it’s about a family. It’s an emotional story. […] It’s another standalone. That’s our design. We developed it together — not together, but like at the same time. The only reason I was able to direct it was because the movie I want to make next, I’m not going to be able to make until September, so it gave me four months, and I suddenly said, “Why don’t I take the helm?”
