Our first official look at The CW’s costumed Batwoman is here, and I think she looks great! That’s actor Ruby Rose under the cowl, and she’ll be debuting later this year in the next big crossover of The CW superhero shows.
Batwoman is also going to get her own series sometime next year, which is pretty darn cool. I’m a big Batwoman fan, and, of course, am a big fan of LGBTQ representation and diversity. I think it was a neat decision to have Batwoman show up in the Arrowverse instead of Batman. It’s a cool choice.
Of course, I stopped watching all Arrowverse shows a year or two ago. They just weren’t for me anymore. If you’re still a fan, by all means, enjoy yourself.
Though I will be checking out all this Batwoman stuff, for sure!
I have stopped watching all of the DC shows on The CW network. I just wasn’t liking them anymore. The Flash had become absolutely painful to watch. But the trailer for this year’s epic crossover looks pretty cool! Maybe I’ll watch just the crossover.
I’m sure I can just whiz through any continuity that I’ve missed. Though I do hear that the new season of Arrow is pretty good.
I’m going to level with you henchies: I’ve stopped watching the DC superhero shows on The CW. Once upon a time, they were my favorite shows! Arrow was great! But I’ve stopped watching all of them, even The Flash. Especially The Flash. Ugh. I just can’t stand the lunacy anymore.
But hey, maybe I’ll give Black Lightning a try when it comes out.
I’ve got no particular interest in Black Lightning as a character. And I’ve got no reason to believe this show will be any different from the crap shows the others have become. But I’m an open-minded fella.
The first images of the Kid Flash costume have debuted online today for The Flash TV show on The CW…and they look pretty great. Actor Keiynan Lonsdale has not yet suited up or even gotten speed powers in the regular show, but the start of Season 3 is said to include a ton of shake-ups.
Based on what happened when we first saw the Flash costume at the start of the show, I think they’re going to start filming Kid Flash soon, and The CW would rather get ahead of the reveal than have set snoopers blow everything by leaking pics from the set online. Makes sense to me. I like Wally West on the show, and I hope he makes for a cool Kid Flash.
Though are they going to call him ‘Kid Flash’? That name doesn’t make any sense in the context of the universe. Wally West is hardly a kid, and Barry Allen isn’t that much older than him.
Though does that opening at the top of his head really work when he doesn’t have a big head of hair to stick out? That dip down into the forehead also looks a little weird…
Superheroes shows on The CW network are growing by leaps and bounds! Arrow is four seasons deep, The Flash was back for a second, and now they’ve doubled in size, with Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl joining the fray. Who could have guessed that this is where we would be?
And I never could have guessed how disinterested I would be…
Harsh words, I know. As recently as last year, I was still totally plugged into the Arrowverse and everything this whole enterprise had to offer. But something has happened in the past year. Something has changed. I used to do annual reviews of each show individually, but I’ve decided to cram my takes on Arrow and The Flash together into one List because that’s all I need. Because these seasons…I dunno. Something has most definitely changed…
Join me after the jump for my thoughts on the Arrowverse these days.
