Ruby Rose is off the show. However, producers have found a new lead, who will take Bat"Woman" in exciting new directions. Meet Ruby Rod:

The article links to an article saying Stephanie Beatriz (Rosa from Brooklyn 99) is interested in the part.  That would be damn near ideal.  Brooklyn 99 fans know she has crazy athleticism.  And that matters to the Arrowverse.  Really, about the only reason why Arrow was watchable was it was filled to the brim with great physical actors.  Stephen Amell and Katie Lotz could really do that stuff.

You notice when an actor isn't a great stunt actor.  They go from really great, smooth, panoramic fight scenes when they're in the mask, to choppy, close-up, jump-cut filled fight scenes when the mask is off.  Rose was OK.  But it's clear the directors didn't always think she could throw a punch the audience would totally buy.

Also, Rose's American accent was garbage.  She could never quite figure out where to put her 'R's.

To be fair, the Arrowverse is getting hard to keep track of at this point. With Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, Arrow and now Stargirl and possibly a Justice League outing. Losing Batwoman and Arrow isn't necessarily a bad thing. Of course, there's an Arrow spin-off in the works so...yeah...

I got burnt out on new series a while ago.  I'm sticking with Flash out of habit, but will probably be bailing next season.  Legends is the only one I still really enjoy.  I have no idea if the Canaries show was picked up for a series.  The backdoor pilot felt like something from 90s Fox.  It wasn't good at all.

I think The CW would do a lot better if they had a few series each year, but only ran them for a few seasons each.  The only one that's managed to keep consistent, if not improve, is Legends.  A lot of that is their ability to shake up the cast each season if they feel like it.

1) Stephanie Beatriz would be ideal and deserves a leading role after killing it on B99 for so many years

2) Ruby is great when she doesn't have to talk- see modeling and John Wick 2.

She was great in JW2. The way the movie handled her fight against Keanu- she's in the background as this dangerous assassin the entire movie, yet he takes her down quickly because he's twice her size and really good at what he does- was perfect.

It's We Got This Covered, an agenda-driven site that generally just makes shiat up for clicks, so I'd take every word of this with a grain of salt unless they cite some actual, credible outside sources.

If someone else did the reporting and they are just rewriting it, then maybe there is some truth here. If it's their "reporting," it's likely made up (and potentially to grind the ax WGTC likes to grind).

Either way, can we stop linking to this site, please? It's a bullshiat clickbait site with absolutely zero credibility. Stop sending them traffic.

Technically they are part of the Arrowverse after Crisis. They however film in Atlanta. Also Swamp Thing from DC streaming is coming to CW  & they are doing a 2nd season of it.

Black Lightning was in its own little pocket universe up until Crisis.  I don't think I've seen them cross-over, yet.  But in theory they should be in the Prime universe with everyone else, now.

Here's a good thread about We Got This Covered. One guy tracked a year of their "scoops" and checked their accuracy. According to him, "Only 1.2% of them have been correct and even then, some of those were me throwing them a bone."

They often re-post content from a notable alt-right geek site, which I won't name because I don't want to push traffic their way.

The site was among those churning out Brie Larson hit pieces during the whole incel meltdown surrounding Captain Marvel.

Someone who claims to be a former writer for them says, "I used to write for them, and am not surprised by how far it's fallen. All the trust fund owner cares about is money, and Google placement, so he overlooks embargoes, rushes content and tries to do anything to get more views. He's scum, who treats his writers like flaming bags of dogshiat, and so is his site. He will make stuff up for clicks, and has no conscience."

So yeah, I'll keep beating this drum whenever their links are posted. We shouldn't be giving We Got This Covered any traffic.

RE Stephanie Beatriz as Batwoman:  Could she maintain her gruff voice for a prolonged amount of time?  Her actual speaking voice is surprisingly different than it is on B99.
 
2020-05-21 1:47:12 PM  
My number one problem with the Arrowverse (other than Black Lightning) is every hero spends countless episodes, if not seasons, doubting themselves.  Whining about 'not being a hero'
Getting countless pep-talks and moral support from their 'teammates'

At what point is Flash going to say "I'm The Flash and I run fast, catch bad guys and kickass?"
Instead they take away his powers and say his superpower is love!?!?

Arrow stopped being Arrow for like 2 season to be mayor and stories focused on him solving crime through "proper channels" and yelling at other teammates for still going out there and being superheroes!

Black Lightning is fine, and he wants his daughters to be safe.  It makes sense in the context of the show.

I love Legends but even THAT show, Sarah rarely fights anyone, Mick rarely uses his fire gun, if he's on the show at all, Ray almost NEVER was The Atom, Charlie almost NEVER shape shifts, Nate almost NEVER turns to Steel.  And they stopped traveling through time.  It's basically the Constantine 2.0 show (and for a while it was the Mona and Gary show!)

They're simply not fun to watch.  I used to look forward to Flash.  Now you have Flash, no powers.  Cicso, crys and QUITS being Vibe for...reasons.  Killer Frost became Frost and now she's leaving too (I get the actress is having a baby, but....) so we left with Elongated Man (who mostly uses his powers off screen) and Allegra?!?  Allegra?!?!?!?!?

It's not Ruby Rose's fault, it's the writers, but Batwoman cried every week about being ineffectual, telling anyone who would listen her real identity, going to fight crime NOT as Batwoman, and Ruby Rose is like 3 foot 8 and 94 pounds soaking yet.  Again, not Rose's fault, she just seemed like the wrong fit from the getgo

CarnySaur: RE Stephanie Beatriz as Batwoman:  Could she maintain her gruff voice for a prolonged amount of time?  Her actual speaking voice is surprisingly different than it is on B99.


She's done it for seven years on B99, so I don't see why not.

CarnySaur: RE Stephanie Beatriz as Batwoman:  Could she maintain her gruff voice for a prolonged amount of time?  Her actual speaking voice is surprisingly different than it is on B99.


She wouldn't be doing it live.  So she wouldn't have to do it for any longer than on B99.  And the fact that her normal speaking voice being different is significant enough to warrant mention just goes to show she's got the voice chops to do the role.

Hell, I'd take Beatriz's bad-ass persona over Ruby Rose.  Rose's Batwoman leans heavily on the sort of cool confidence of a Bruce Wayne playboy.  Beatriz's comedic range works in her favor.  She could probably project humor, intensity, charm, anger, etc., without sacrificing the stoic bad-assery a Batwoman should have.

I'm glad it's already been covered. The second you see We Got This Covered as the source of a story on Fark about a show or movie with a woman lead, it's guaranteed to be a made-up or poorly sourced story all about how she's the problem and everyone hates her. I'm willing to bet that they just have at template that they plug titles and names into, because it sounds like the same shiat that they trotted out for Captain Marvel.

eagles95: Also Swamp Thing from DC streaming is coming to CW & they are doing a 2nd season of it.


They got the broadcast rights for the first season. They've already stated pretty clearly that, while things could change if there's enough support, there are currently no plans for a season 2 and they're just filling a programming gap with the episodes that already exist.
 
2020-05-21 2:34:14 PM  
there's something in her demeanor that has always struck me as unpleasant.

It's fine when she's playing an antagonist, but it doesn't work when she's playing a character who is supposed to be sympathetic.

There was something I saw her in where I thought her act of betrayal was completely in character to where I was caught off guard when the show seemed to expect it to have been a shock.

Still, I wish her all the best in whatever opportunities she pursues next.

\My not watching Batwoman was far more about Flarrowverse burnout than to do with her

Whatever you do, skip the first season. Just read the summary and go straight to season 2. It's not like Agents of Shield and seems aimless until the hammer drops and you have to re-evaluate everything. It just plods along and not much happens.

The CW universe farks with canon too much to be of any interest to me. I do understand some changes need to be made to keep things fresh. I'm not unwilling to budge on many aspects of a characters story. But most of the characters that show up in CW shows end up having little in common with the characters they're based on except name and power set. If you're determined to completely rewrite a character just make up a new one. You basically already have and just slapped a recognizable name on top in the hopes everyone will buy it.

Also the CW Superman is the worst.

I'm gonna need you to take a seat here because I'm REALLY farkin' over Hollywood casting hearing actors to play deaf or mute characters who use sign language as a novelty act that makes it painfully obvious that they just learned how to sign their lines minutes before the director calls out "ACTION!" I understand you hearing folks can't tell the difference, but this has been a regular thing since William Hurt in "Children of a Lesser God" in 1986 pretending to be a deaf educator and signed every line like it caused him great pain and constipation. Hollywood has absolutely refused to even consider the fact that despite the popular trend of casting against race or gender for the sake of representation, they don't give a single solitary damn about reasonable representation for deaf roles and have continuously cast hearing actors in deaf roles or disabled characters with abled actors who will never come close to the concept of authenticity. There's a reason why casting an actual deaf actress as one of the kids in "A Quiet Place" was considered so groundbreaking because for every one time Hollywood gets it right, we get another hearing pretty boy playing Nick Andros in "The Stand".

Ruby Rose is no different and her use of sign language in JW2 was an absolute joke because we all know they attached that detail to her character because she can't read lines for shiat. Trust me, even if you can't tell the difference, she can't do it in sign language either.

You are in for a treat with Legends.  Best show on TV.  Season one is a totally different show from what it turns into, for the better.  Season one was hard to watch.

Also, does anyone think Astra looks like Hawkgirl?  Legends has this thing with women with big teeth who talk by moving their lips, and keeping their mouth closed.

The Arrowverse doesn't fark with canon any more than the underlying DC universe does.  Just about every 10 or 15 years or so they need to completely reboot the whole thing to make it make some semblance of sense again.

Embrace the infinite multiverse.  Everything is canon somewhere.  Keaton is canon.  Reeve is canon.  Reeves is canon.  Clooney is Canon.  West is canon.  The joker is dead.  The Joker never died.  The Joker never existed.  The Joker killed Robin.  There is no Robin.  Robin is alive.  Robin was killed by the Joker.  Robin is like 5 people, both at once, and each of the 5 is the only Robin.  All of this is true.  None of it ever happened.  It's happening right now.

You're right, I can't tell and don't care even though I understand you being offended.  But face it, Hollywood cast Kevin Costner as an Englishman, Gerard Butler as an American, Tom Cruise as an Irishman, Harrison Ford as a Russian. I know you can't hear their voices but trust me they are mangling the accents just as thoroughly as the people signing are mangling ASL. And actors with those accents are much much more common than actors who can sign fluently. Mainstream film industry always casts based on who or what is popular at the time. And they aim the movies at the average audience.

Igor Jakovsky: shoegaze99: Here's a good thread about We Got This Covered. One guy tracked a year of their "scoops" and checked their accuracy. According to him, "Only 1.2% of them have been correct and even then, some of those were me throwing them a bone."

They often re-post content from a notable alt-right geek site, which I won't name because I don't want to push traffic their way.

The site was among those churning out Brie Larson hit pieces during the whole incel meltdown surrounding Captain Marvel.

Someone who claims to be a former writer for them says, "I used to write for them, and am not surprised by how far it's fallen. All the trust fund owner cares about is money, and Google placement, so he overlooks embargoes, rushes content and tries to do anything to get more views. He's scum, who treats his writers like flaming bags of dogshiat, and so is his site. He will make stuff up for clicks, and has no conscience."

So yeah, I'll keep beating this drum whenever their links are posted. We shouldn't be giving We Got This Covered any traffic.

Fwiw this is the original Variety article they cribbed from.

Well, having read that article they say they are going to cast another LGBTQ actor. So that is going to eliminate all the actresses I considered as possibilities as well as those other Farkers have been suggesting unless one of them wants to come out.  Dichen Lachman is a little old but can fight.  But our luck they will cast Kristin Stewart or Cara Delevingne.

PlaidJaguar: Noah_Tall: It amuses me that Farkers like Daily Fail links and use the "doubt the existence" joke over and over no matter how stale it is. Yet those same Farkers get so bent out of shape about WGTC links as if that publication were somehow polluting the integrity of Farks usual sources.

Heh, look at my bio which has been the same since day one.

hubiestubert: To be fair, the Arrowverse is getting hard to keep track of at this point. With Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, Arrow and now Stargirl and possibly a Justice League outing. Losing Batwoman and Arrow isn't necessarily a bad thing. Of course, there's an Arrow spin-off in the works so...yeah...

How many Canadian actors can ONE studio keep afloat on a network?


You forgot Lucifer, which takes place on Earth-666, and is technically part of the Arrowverse. Titans (Earth-9), Swamp Thing(Earth-19), Doom Patrol (Earth-21), and Smallville (Earth-167) are also technically part of the Arrowverse.

I'll be the one to say it even though I'm not happy the thought even came to me.
As much as the ideas floated by everyone for replacements would be neat, it's already established in the show that Alice and Kate are fraternal twins, and both parents have appeared on-screen. So anyone not pale and waspy is gonna be a no.
