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.
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.
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 THING much 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?
As the world currently deals with the global coronavirus pandemic and many television productions shutdown along with new episodes put on hiatus. The CW is doing some moving around and shuffling of its upcoming debut slots to fill up the spring time holes in programming.
STARGIRL which was coming to both the DC Universe streaming app as well as the CW is moving back to May 19 instead of its originally planned May 12 air date. A new episode of DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” will air at 9 p.m. after the premiere of “Stargirl.”
STARGIRL will take over THE FLASH Tuesday time slot until production resumes later in the year. However the show about the fastest man on the planet will finish airing the episodes that were completed before the shutdown. In turn, “Legacies” will go on hiatus after Thursday’s episode, which was the last to finish filming before the shutdown, until production resumes later in the year.
STARGIRL stars Brec Bassinger, Luke Wilson and Amy Smart. It follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past.
Season 2 of IN THE DARK is described as following Murphy (Perry Mattfeld), a messy twenty-something who struggles on a daily basis to balance her random hookups, her hangovers, and her drug front — all while being blind.
