In a move that will surprise no one, The CW has ordered a Batwoman TV show pilot featuring Ruby Rose as the character. Rose stepped into the role for the first time during the CW’s “Elseworlds” crossover event, and now she’ll have a chance to lead a series of her own – should the show get picked up. The pilot is set to be directed by David Nutter, who also directed the pilots for The Flash and Arrow.

At the end of this week’s Elseworlds, the three-part event unfolding across The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl, The CW’s crossover continuity teased a major event straight out of DC comics. It’s been hinted at ever since The Flash debuted in 2014 and now it’s official: the 1985-86 landmark Crisis on Infinite Earths will finally make its way to screens in the Fall of 2019. What’s more, everything these shows have been doing for the last few years, including and especially this recent event, justifies it in spades.

After years of skirting around Batman like it was a dirty word, the latest Arrowverse “Elseworlds” teaser finally drops his name a dozen times. And like Beetlejuice, apparently, the Caped Crusader shows up. But she’s not exactly the one they expected.
Ruby Rose makes her debut as Batwoman in the fifth annual Arrowverse crossover event, “Elseworlds,” which will span episodes of The CW’s The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl. And the latest “Elseworlds” teaser finally shows her in action.

Many DC Comics fans were shocked when Jesse Eisenberg was cast as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but that’s nowhere near as shocking as who The CW series Supergirl has cast in the iconic villain role.
Supergirl executive producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller have announced Two and a Half Men, and Pretty in Pink star, Jon Cryer will be playing Lex Luthor when the character is finally introduced in the current fourth season of The CW series set in the overarching Arrowverse. Read More »
Batman will apparently finally show up in Gotham season 5, but first we’ll have to put up with CGI explosions, the Joker who doesn’t go by the name Joker, and of course, the goofy new Bane. You don’t get to see the Gotham version of Batman in the latest trailer for the final season, and I have a feeling Bruce Wayne wont don his famous costume until the last possible moment. For now, though, you can get hyped by watching the Gotham season 5 trailer below.

The CW is working to bring Lauren Beukes, Dale Halverson, and Ryan Kelly‘s Survivors’ Club to life, while Universal Cable Productions is looking to make a The Invisibles TV show based on the classic series by author Grant Morrison.

When TV shows get cancelled or even come to a natural end, they’re not truly over – instead, they wait in limbo until a network gets desperate enough to resurrect a piece of intellectual property that has name recognition.
Both movies and television have used this tactic countless times in recent years, and The CW – who just did this with Charmed, by the way – is going back to the well once again with a reboot of the USA Network mystery series The 4400. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Conceptually, Legends of Tomorrow is… odd. Its first season brings together supporting heroes and villains from The Flash and Arrow and sends them tumbling through time, including (but not limited to) petty thieves Heatwave and Captain Cold (Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller of Prison Break, playing off each other in deliciously operatic fashion), scientist Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and car mechanic Jefferson ‘Jax’ Jackson (Franz Drameh), who combine to form a single, flame-headed nuclear superhero F.I.R.E.S.T.O.R.M., undead assassin The White Canary (Caity Lotz), John Constantine (Matt Ryan; yes, that John Constantine) and boyscout superhero Ray Palmer/The Atom, played by none other than Brandon Routh of Superman Returns.
Full disclosure: the first season leaves a lot to be desired. It’s a messy, dour collection of decent-to-good character moments focusing on an underwhelming villain, Vandal Savage (Casper Crump, who performs admirably) on the heels of two equally underwhelming heroes, Hawkman (Falk Hentschel) and Hawk-Girl (Ciara Renée), but the reason I’m keen to write about Legends is because its second season is functionally a soft reboot. The show changes up its structure entirely, leaning hard in to the inherent ridiculousness of inept superheroes given the ability to travel anywhere in history. I mean, why wouldn’t they go hang out with J.R.R. Tolkien during World War I?
