DC fans rejoice, because more DC-TV-goodness might be coming your way. The CW has greenlit the Batwoman series starring Ruby Rose for a pilot order. While this doens’t mean the show is getting a full season, it does mean they’ll start casting and building its world. This comes by way of the Hollywood reporter. Batwoman was one of the stand out parts of this year’s crossover event on the network and it looks like the brand wants more of her, for now.
In some other interesting news, we now know why the Bat-Signal was never lit in said crossover. SyFy Wire is reporting that producers for the Gotham series, which just entered it’s last season, apparently shot down a request to use the Bat-Signal. Pretty sad that the two shows couldn’t come together, but considering Gotham has been pretty up and down, I don’t think fans will be too upset. It isn’t the strongest Batman property out there.
In Walking Dead news, Austin Amello who plays Dwight on The Walking Dead, will apparently join Morgan (Lennie James) as major characters who do a crossover event on their sister show, Fear the Walking Dead. James is now the lead actor on Fear the Walking Dead, after killing off practically three of the four lead characters in the span of two seasons. Jenna Elfman, Garrett Dillaunt (who was up for Negan), and Maggie Grace are joining the show as well in season four. Only Alycia Debnam-Carey, Coleman Domingo and Danay Garcia remain as original regular cast members.
For fans of Blizzard, an Activision subsidiary, be prepared. The company has lost two top executives in two weeks. They lost CFO Spencer Neuman, who was ‘fired’ by the company, but landed a big role with Netflix. His repalcement, Amrita Ahuja is already planning her exit as well. The company has been reeling ever since their announcement for a new mobile Diablo game was met with huge fan backlash. Any time you lose two big execs in such a short amount of time, one can assume things are going very badly.
