Dear Superhero Fans
I've just heard that Supergirl's next season, that is season 6, will be it's final season. Although not officially announced yet, it's believed that Supergirl is not being renewed because of falling ratings and coincidentally the main star's contract, Melissa Benoist, is also ending.
It is also thought that Ms Benoist will also take the time off to look after her new born before renewing her career at a later stage.
From a personal POV, it was always 50-50 that a new mother would want to take time off from a demanding career to look after her first born.
As I'm a fan of superhero shows, I am sad that the Supergirl show is leaving the CW because, unfortunately, Ms Benoist has made the main character her own and so, as such, cannot be easily replaced, as apparently the Batwoman character can.
Finally, there was some belief that CW could not sustain in the long term both Supergirl and Superman & Lois at the same time, this just may have been proved.
Dear Superhero Fans
Even though there has been no trailers, no official pictures the trolls are already dumping on Batwoman season 2. In other words, they've already marked this new show for failure.
I'm guessing the unofficial picture, of the cowl, being commented, as the basis for their criticisms, is likely to be a first test fitting and is probably very uncomfortable.
Either way, good or bad, I hope Channel 4/E4 gives this show a chance when it becomes available.
Hi Superhero fans
Picked up some news this morning that I'm going to speculate on, so take the following with a pinch, or handful, of salt.
As we all now know, the ending of Supergirl has been officially announced, and there is strong speculation that Black Lightning and Legends of Tomorrow are likely to be next on the chopping block. Plus, it is now highly unlikely that there will be any more big crossovers, like Crisis..., instead there will only be one or two episode crossovers featuring the Flash and/or Superman.
This outcome of a scaled back CW also means there will be no CW Justice League, that IP will remain firmly within the control of Warner Brothers and Hulu.
As for the future of DC superhero shows, the tentative plan is to develop new shows with bigger budgets, six to eight episodes per season, for two seasons only and aired exclusively on Hulu. These ideas, if they come to fruition, are still some two the three years away and dependant on how well Snyder's JLA performs.
And finally, if and when DC superhero shows take off on Hulu, CW will most likely by then be out of the super shows production business and concentrating their efforts elsewhere, i.e. on different genres.
Yeah, I think your right and I should have check that fact before I started to write down my speculation.
So, for everybody reading this, please substitute HBO Max for every instance of Hulu I've written in my post above:
"Supergirl's ending could also be the end of the Arrowverse".
It's a pity this forum has such restrictive editing facilities, most other user forums would've allowed me to correct my Hulu/HBO Max mistake.
Dear Superhero fans
Just saw this picture and thought it might be interesting:
I understand it's a C7 Corvette, maybe like the one Prince used to sing about?
Anyway, as soon as I come across the new Batwoman's new uniform, I will post it here.
However, one thing I hope the most is that CW abandons their politically orientated scripts for season 2 and concentrates on writing action, adventure based crime stories and a practical/semi-believable origin for their newest superhero.
