Yes you are right, Arrow is into it's last season (of 10 episodes) and it is expected that the lead character will die sacrificing himself to save the multiverse.
As for Supernatural, I see that it's now up to 15 years, Wow.
But when I mentioned in my previous post "one or two of the current season of CW shows may bite the dust.", I was thinking of either Batwoman, Supergirl or Legends.
Let me explain, Batwoman, although a newcomer to the CW's roster, has been tanking with both US audiences and amateur critics alike and, from the clips I've seen, Ruby Rose the Batwoman character, is not a good actor. She can do action scenes, from the films I've seen her in, but carrying a show as the main character?
If Superman becomes a new CW show, spun off from Crisis..., then I think they are unlikely to keep Supergirl going as well.
From my own POV, Legends has been under resourced in terms of SFX, good script writing, etc. and, what's worse, they've tried to cover this mess up by turning it into a second (actually, third) rate comedy. Better to kill it off rather than to watch it's slow and inevitable decline.
However (here's my not quite 180), one of the top guys at CW has issued a notice of support for Supergirl, "pinch of salt time", and Legends is loosing two of it's actors, Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford (real life husband and wife team), in an effort I believe to streamline the show. But I don't think that will work, not unless they put more (of the good) resources into this show.
Hello Party People
Just a bit more news about CW and their upcoming plans:
CW are premièring a new show sometime in the new year, Superman and Lois, which is in development at the moment.
Crisis on Infinite Earths will be missing its' part 2 in the UK, which is Batwoman S01E09 because Sky has announced that they are unable to purchase the rights for it.
At this stage, whether this episode of Batwoman will ever be shown in the UK is unknown.
I understand that there will be a new spin off series emanating from the last season of Arrow, i.e. Green Arrow & The Canaries, which will feature Arrow's daughter (aka Mia Smoak) as the new Green Arrow, with Dinah Drake and Laurel Lance as The Canaries, both meta humans with enhanced voice powers.
Finally (and taken with a pinch of salt), CW are working on another new, but unnamed, super hero show for sometime in the new year. It is thought this unnamed show is likely to replace another show that will be coming to an end (it's vague, I know, but that's it for now).
@ukbobboy So sorry it has been a while since I last joined the conversation about superheroes!
I've pretty much dropped them all except The Flash, they just keep getting dragged out now in my opinion and some hard to keep up with. 😢
I don't suppose anyone has caught Pennyworth on that Starzplay app yet?
We've not communicated for some time, but as you know life has a habit of getting in the way.
As for the super hero shows, I'm looking forward to Crisis On Infinite Earths, as you can guess, but it seems that we in the UK will not get part 2 of this five part saga.
New shows are coming, such as Superman and Lois and possibly Green Lantern, while other will go, i.e. Arrow (end naturally), Supergirl (falling US audience), Batwoman (CW may be trying to rescue it from its' disastrous US start) and Legends (again, CW may try to revitalise it).
As you can see, I'm still into the CW super heroes simply because they allow me to forget, for a little while at least, about life's problems.
From a simple guy that loves his cold drinks and cool music (& Super heroes):
Catch you later
It sure does, 2019 has not been the kindest year to me.
I had a feeling Supergirl was falling, it is just too political now for me.
The Flash though gets better each season!
I have heard terrible/laughable things about Batwoman so may not even bother when the UK gets it. I do try to atleast check out the pilots so may still do that in this case. 😇
Sorry to hear that you've had a tough time this year but I do hope that, as Christmas and new year approaches, your situation will get better.
Hollywood, it seems, are trying to push a particular, but very unsubtle, political agenda, starting from with the failed Ghostbusters (2016), through the Kathleen Kennedy produced Star Wars movies, up to the present day Terminator: Dark Fate directed by Tim Miller.
In fact since Terminator: Dark Fate, people are no longer wondering why Tim Miller was sacked from Deadpool 2.
As for CW's Batwoman, I understand that they will try and increase it from 10 to a 22 episode season. Now, I'm not gonna throw criticisms at this show, simply because I've not seen it yet, but (TBH) I cannot find any DC/CW YouTube reviewer that likes it, and that is saying something.
Catch you later.
I didn't realise that it was only 10 episodes. Doesn't really look like they have much faith in it so far.
I am actually looking forward to Terminator: Dark Fate. Not sure when I will be able to catch it but I do want to.
Not to hijack this thread, but have you seen Joker yet? I saw it a couple of weeks ago, and WOW I hope it gets an Oscar. 👍
No, I've not seen the Joker yet and really had no plans to see it. You see, I don't see entertainment in people with mental illnesses being abused and/or brutalised, even though I do realise this is just a film and, most importantly, a work of fiction.
Sorry Casey, I'm getting too serious again.
However, I hope by the time Joker comes out on DVD I'll be in a better frame of mind to watch it.
As for Terminator: Dark Fate, that's next on my agenda to watch.
@ukbobboy That's fine, I know not everyone is comfortable watching movies like this but I will say, if Joaquin Phoenix does not win a best actor Oscar then there is something seriously wrong. He really researched the heck for this role.
Just saw this Crisis... extended trailer, and it looks fantastic.
Although it's gonna take a long time before we, in the UK, see all five episodes as they were meant to be seen, I'm still anxious to see the four we can.
