Despite still being seen as the lesser of the five major broadcast networks, The CW is actually having a really good year. This past season the network debuted three new critically-acclaimed shows, which earned The CW some of its biggest praise yet.

Marvel’s newest comic book movie Ant-Man had a bit of a rough time getting to the big screen. After years in development, director Edgar Wright suddenly dropped out of the project just as filming was about to get underway, only to be replaced by Peyton Reed. Script revisions later delayed the movie even further, and many critics and fans feared the worst. But now the box office and reviews are finally in and Ant-Man has emerged as a small hit for the studio.
Yet changes on the film during production didn’t stop there. With the announcement of Captain America: Civil War in early 2014, Reed ended up needing to incorporate some foreshadowing in his movie for the next film …

Ezra Miller seemingly came onto the scene out of nowhere with Stephen Chbosky’s 2012 coming-of-age drama The Perks of Being a Wallflower. The truth is, though, his rise to the top was the result of six years of hard work on various TV shows and indie movies. And Miller’s upward mobility hasn’t stopped since, as late last year the actor landed the highly coveted role of The Flash in DC’s Cinematic Universe.
