DC Comics fans have long argued over who is the best Batman. The kids these days think Christian Bale is the ultimate Dark Knight, but plenty will argue that Michael Keaton is the definitive version of the Caped Crusader. But there’s an even more passionate group of fans who think Kevin Conroy, the voice of the world’s greatest detective on Batman: The Animated Series, is the best Batman. Now, the actor is about to join the ranks of the live-action Batman actors too.
At the Television Critics Association summer press tour, The CW announced that Kevin Conroy would be playing Batman yet again in the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event coming to the Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and the new Batwoman series starring Ruby Rose.

Brandon Routh is one of the few actors fortunate (or maybe unfortunate) enough to strap on the blue tights and red underwear and soar through the sky as Superman. Plucked from obscurity, Routh played the Man of Steel in Bryan Singer’s 2006 film Superman Returns, which was also kind of a remake of Superman: The Movie. Yeah, it was a weird one. Now he’ll be putting the cape back on again for the upcoming Arrowverse crossover event Crisis on Infinite Earths over at The CW. Read More »

As the streaming wars intensify, Netflix is finding itself at the center of everyone’s targets. In addition to losing Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars titles as Disney+ prepares to launch, and NBCUniversal preparing to pull streaming favorites The Office and Friends, Netflix is now losing out on future The CW shows.
The teen-friendly network is ending its CW Netflix deal, which would find CW shows like Arrow, The Flash, Riverdale, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend landing automatically on Netflix soon after a season finished airing. But CW is declining to renew that deal for its future shows, planning to shop new shows like Batwoman to other services. But don’t worry, Riverdale fans. The old shows will still stay on Netflix, with new seasons, for the foreseeable future.

The streaming service spent around $100 million to keep the exclusive licensing rights to stream the show through 2019.

That’s because the media companies behind them are starting their own streaming services, and Netflix might have to share the rights to some of their most popular shows. This could really shake up the streaming scene and end up being something either really bad for Netflix, or really unfortunate for new streaming services. Read More »
