It seems that Rose never got used to the long hours required to be the lead of a television show as well she did not really like well lets say never got adjusted to life in Vancouver where the show is primarily filmed.
According to TV Line’s source, “It wasn’t 100-percent her decision,” The source goes on further to say “It was a breakup. She wasn’t happy working on the show, and did that make her fun to work with? No. So everyone decided it would be in the best interests of the show, and for all concerned, if they parted ways. It just wasn’t a good fit.
Either way we may not know the full story until Ruby Rose gives her statement on this matter. But we do know that she will no longer be in the cape and cowl and come next season there will be a new Kate Kane.
Whelp…… it’s finally happening. After a couple of years of rumors, doubts, hashtags, campaigns, tweets and an overloaded Vero account, the Zack Snyder cut of JUSTICE LEAGUE will be available for the world to view in 2021 on the upcoming HBO MAX streaming service. The news was delivered by Snyder himself as he surprised fans this morning during a live online commentary of his film MAN OF STEEL with Henry Cavill.
Snyder acknowledged the overwhelming support of the fans who began the rally cut with the #ReleaseTheSynderCut hashtag all across social media. He stated, “I want to thank HBO Max and Warner Brothers for this brave gesture of supporting artists and allowing their true visions to be realized. Also a special thank you to all of those involved in the SnyderCut movement for making this a reality,”
Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, Warner Media Entertainment and Direct-To-Consumer spoke on the release of the director’s cut of the film coming to the streaming platform, “Since I got here 14 months ago, the chant to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut has been a daily drumbeat in our offices and inboxes. Well, the fans have asked, and we are thrilled to finally deliver. At the end of the day, it really is all about them and we are beyond excited to be able to release Zack’s ultimate vision for this film in 2021. This could never have happened if it weren’t for the hard work and combined efforts of the teams at HBO Max and Warner Bros. Pictures.”
When speaking on this monumental moment, Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group said, “Thanks to the efforts of a lot people, we’re excited to bring fans this highly anticipated version of Justice League,” He goes on further to say“This feels like the right time to share Zack’s story, and HBO Max is the perfect platform for it. We’re glad the creative planets aligned, allowing us to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut.”
An exact date for the films release has not yet been announced. The theatrical edition of JUSTICE LEAGUE was released on November 17,2017. HBO Max arrives on May 27th of this year.
Many of us kind of expected this would happen since the first time we saw Kate Kane (Ruby Rose)and Kara Zor El (Melissa Benoist) team up and fight together in the ELSEWORLDS crossover. But it seems as if the CW is putting a bit of a twist to our vision of a WORLDS COLLIDE.
The CW Chairman and CEO Mark Pedowitz revealed that the network planning a two-hour event pairing Superman and Batwoman will be coming together in a crossover event. Unfortunately given the events of COVID-19 we will not be getting it in December as we are used to see the crossovers happen. That more than likely it will happen either the first or second quarter of 2021.
“We’re still working on it. It will be a smaller event than usual, we’re only planning a two-hour event. We are talking about doing Superman and Batwoman together. There’s a lot of characters coming from our other shows,” Pedowitz said.
It was also recently announced that the newest CW superhero show SUPERMAN & LOIS will be going straight to series. So it seems as if this crossover may serve as the backdoor pilot for the series. Also it is worth noting that BATWOMAN has been renewed for a second season.
The CW is still stacking their roster for their upcoming SUPERMAN& LOIS series. Inde Navarrette has been added as a series regular opposite Erik Valdez and Emmanuelle Chriqui in the new superhero drama about the iconic DC couple, played by Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch. Navarrette will play Sarah Cushing in the series.
SUPERMAN & LOIS will revolve around the world’s most famous superhero and comic books’ most famous journalist, as they deal with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents of twin boys in today’s society.
Navarrette’s Sarah Cushing, the daughter of Kyle (Valdez) and Lana (Chriqui), is a whip smart, super cool wild child with some demons in her past who becomes friends with the Kent boys, Jonathan and Jordan.
Series regular cast also includes Vampire Diaries alum Wolé Parks as The Stranger.
This is news that many people were waiting to hear about. Especially since it was announced the DOOM PATROL would be making its move from the DC Universe streaming app over to the HBO Max streaming platform. But the announcement that was made may add some more excitement.
The sophomore season of DOOM PATROL which originally was a DC Universe exclusive, will debut on HBO Max and DCU on June 25 simultaneously, as announced by WarnerMedia on Wednesday.
Back in January at the Television Critics Association, HBO Max content chief Kevin Reilly said regarding HBO Max and DCU: “We have to figure out those two subscriptions and we haven’t worked out the mechanics of what that’s going to look like.” This is because it was initially believed by many that the DC Universe service would be absorbed into HBO Max.
It seems the mechanics have been worked out regarding “Doom Patrol,” a A crew member who has worked on multiple DC Universe shows told Business Insider that HBO Max had been heavily involved in season two.
One part of this headline is a big “DUH” but the shock is the second half that many people were hoping would happen.
SWAMP THING after being officially cancelled by the DC Universe has now been acquired by the CW. CW just fresh off of adding the first two seasons of CBS All Access anthology Tell Me a Story, has licensed DC Universe’s Swamp Thing. No one knows yet when exactly the series will make its official debut on the network or if it just goes to the CW Seed app. There is now also the possibility of a resurgence on the show on the HBO MAX streaming platform.
SWAMP THING starred Crystal Reed as Dr. Abby Arcane and Derek Mears as the elemental and Andy Bean as the human version of Dr. Alec Holland.
For those who are wondering what caused the cancellation of SWAMP THINGmuch of it was because of budget and tax breaks which were taken away in as well as the studio’s decision to bypass paying millions to store the show’s physical sets in North Carolina.
What would like to see happen with the series? Do you just want the initial episodes or pick up and keep the series going?
