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.

Updates Are Coming On The Possible Reason For Ruby Rose’s Exit From BATWOMAN

Batwoman-EW-header-300x150

Yesterday, many were shocked when they learned that Ruby Rose would be exiting the CW’s BATWOMAN Of course there is speculation as to why it happened now thanks to a new report from TV Line it can be assumed that the parting was a mutual agreement.

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.

The SNYDER CUT Will Be Released On HBO Max

Justice League

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.

The Worlds Finest Are Coming Together In A 2021 CW Crossover

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.

 

SUPERMAN AND LOIS Add Inde Navarette To The Cast

 

Inde Navarrette - Zimbio

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.

DOOM PATROL Season 2 To Air On DC Universe And HBO Max SIMULTANEOUSLY

Meet the Doom Patrol | DC Universe | The Ultimate Membership - YouTube

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.

DOOM PATROL is not the only DC Universe series that’s not exclusive to the service. STARGIRL premieres this upcoming Monday on DCU and will air the next day on the CW Network. The network also recently acquired the rights to season one of DCU’s SWAMP THING which was abruptly canceled last year.

One thing is for sure, the reviews on this will return and hoping for another incredible performance from Brendan Fraser and Diane Guerrero.
