GOTHAM PD Is Coming To HBO MAX From Matt Reeves

It seems that THE BATMAN and potentially a sequel will not be the only looks into the work of the dark knight that we are getting from director Matt Reeves. News was just released today that Reeves along with Boardwalk Empire creator, Terence Winter, THE BATMAN producer Dylan Clark and Warner Bros television are bringing a GOTHAM PD series to HBO MAX.

The series will be written by Winter is set in the world Reeves is creating for The Batman feature film and will build upon the motion picture’s examination of the anatomy of corruption in Gotham City, ultimately launching a new Batman universe across multiple platforms. According to Warner Bros. television the series will provide an unprecedented opportunity to extend the world established in the movie and further explore the myriad of compelling and complex characters of Gotham. This marks the first television project for Reeves under his recently announced overall deal with the Warner Bros. Television Group.

Matt Reeves spoke on the new project saying “This is an amazing opportunity, not only to expand the vision of the world I am creating in the film, but to explore it in the kind of depth and detail that only a longform format can afford — and getting to work with the incredibly talented Terence Winter, who has written so insightfully and powerfully about worlds of crime and corruption, is an absolute dream.”

“Our collaboration with Warner Bros. and DC allows us to elaborate and grow fan connections across these powerful brands for years to come.  This is Batman as most audiences have never seen before and we know fans will want to spend more time in this new world inspired by the film,” added Kevin Reilly, chief content officer, HBO Max, president TNT, TBS, and TruTV.

Many people were hoping that the now cancelled GOTHAM (starring Ben McKenzie as Jim Gordon) was going to be focused solely on the Gotham City Police Department. However that focused shifted dramatically as the show went in the direction of showing us a young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) and him being his journey into crime fighting following the murder of his parents Thomas and Martha “WHY DID YOU SAY THAT NAME ! ! !” Wayne

Javicia Leslie Is Set To Take Over The Cape And Cowl In BATWOMAN

The actress will assume the lead on The CW series following Ruby Rose's departure.

After months of speculation as to who would be replacing Kate Kane as the protector of Gotham after Ruby Rose exited BATWOMAN, we now know who will take up the mantle as Ryan Wilder the new character set to be the city’s hero.

Javicia Leslie (GOD FRIENDED ME) will take over the title role in The CW series’ second season. With her cast she is becoming the first Black actress to play Batwoman in a live-action TV or film production.

“I am extremely proud to be the first Black actress to play the iconic role of Batwoman on television, and as a bisexual woman, I am honored to join this groundbreaking show which has been such a trailblazer for the LGBTQ+ community,” said Leslie.

The new character of Ryan Wilder, which was created by showrunner Caroline Dries and executive producer Greg Berlanti is described as “likable, messy, a little goofy and untamed. She’s also nothing like Kate Kane, the woman who wore the Batsuit before her. With no one in her life to keep her on track, Ryan spent years as a drug-runner, dodging the GCPD and masking her pain with bad habits. Today Ryan lives in her van with her plant. A girl who would steal milk for an alley cat and could also kill you with her bare hands, Ryan is the most dangerous type of fighter: highly skilled and wildly undisciplined. An out lesbian. Athletic. Raw. Passionate. Fallible. And very much not your stereotypical All-American hero.”

This is exciting but also adds an extra layer of interest with the Superman and Batwoman crossover set to happen in the near future.

STARGIRL Renewed For Second Season, Will Move From DC Universe To Become Original CW Show

image001-1-1

STARGIRL will continue to battle the Injustice Society as well as any other threat that may come to the town of Blue Valley in her second season. The DC Comics superhero show has been renewed for a sophomore season by the CW. Along with its renewal it will fully migrate over to the network as a CW original show and will leave its current mainstay home on the DC Universe.

STARGIRL was initially a DC Universe original where the first season of the series was commissioned by the digital subscription service. The CW however last fall acquired an exclusive linear window as well as play on the network’s non-linear platforms following its debut on DC Universe.  Episodes of STARGIRL currently air the next day on the CW a day after it airs on the DC Universe.

No longer will episodes be available on the DC Universe streaming platform going forward. This is seemingly the new direction the platform is taking.  The DC Universe has been focusing on its core business of DC comic book and news content for fans. DC Universe has one exclusive original series, TITANS. DOOM PATROL which recently entered its second season is now shared with HBO Max.

RIVERDALE Star Eyed To Become New Protector Of Gotham

The drama surrounding the CW’s BATWOMAN has been just as much as what’s in the show itself. From Ruby Rose’s departure as the lead character, to her reasoning being revealed, to news that now the show will replace Rose’s Kate Kane altogether with a new character as opposed to recasting, this story has been one worth following.

There is now another chapter to this tale thanks to The Cinema Spot. It is being reported that RIVERDALE star, Vanessa Morgan is being eyed to take up the mantle of the new Ryan Wilder character. Initially after the announcement to replace Rose was made, many fans began to push back especially on social media stating that they would not be watching the sophomore season.

It is worth noting that Morgan is the only black lead on RIVERDALE and she recently called out the CW for its sidelining of black leads:

Tired of how Black people are portrayed in Media, tired of us being portrayed as thugs, dangerous or angry scary people. Tired of us also being used as sidekick non-dimensional characters to our white leads. Or only used in the ads for diversity but not actually in the show.

RIVERDALE creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa replied with the following:

We hear Vanessa. We love Vanessa. She’s right. We’re sorry and we make the same promise that we did to her. We will do better to honor her and the character she plays. As well as all of our actors and characters of color. CHANGE is happening and will continue to happen. Riverdale will get bigger, not smaller. Riverdale will be part of the movement, not outside it.

It was previously announced that, spoiler alert, Riverdale is set to do a time jump heading into Season 5. Therefore, it is likely that if Morgan gets the role of Ryan Wilder, her Riverdale character Toni Topaz will not be returning after the time jump.

Also it is being report that along with her audition, Vanessa Morgan will also be doing a screen test. This screen test will presumably be done with other members of the main cast.

Now just because she is screen testing it does not mean she is a lock and other actresses cannot audition for the role. The CW is looking for an actress who is younger than 30 years old, and “gets” Berlanti Productions and its culture.
