CW looking to develop a Raven series

The CW is looking to adapt "Raven," a half-demon also known as Rachel Roth, into a series. Diego Gutierrez, who most recently served as co-exec VP on "V," is writing and will exec produce.


Project has a script order at the CW through Warner Bros. TV and DC Entertainment.
Variety

While the character isn't exactly my top choice of what I'd like CW to adapt next, I'll still definitely watch it if it gets made.

Thoughts? Cast wishlists?

Is The CW just going to make paranormal, vampire, super natural, super hero shows?

At least the CW would be kind of sticking to their roots by doing so. Both UPN and the WB (especially UPN) tended to offer more genre fare than the usual broadcast networks did.

It's hard for me to imagine as I only know the character through the Teen Titans cartoon.

This would have to be the perfect individual:

Sounds more like an attempt to capture the Twilight fanbase.

Duh.

It worked with The Vampire Diaries and now they want it to work with this.

Re: CW looking to develop a Raven series

Well I think lots of Dc's magic folk could make an appearance here. Summon the demon Etrigan. Behold the power of the Spectre. Who is the Phantom Stranger? Maybe even get the Shadowpact into things. It would be nice if it ended up in the Smallville Universe. Maybe a Zatanna appearance just to keep things tied together. I'll take any super hero show I can get.

As long as she's a heroine of the girl-oriented variety, I'm in. Maybe.

What?

Why not just do a Green Arrow series instead? They already had Justin Hartley playing the character for several years now on Smallville.

Re: CW looking to develop a Raven series

"Green Arrow" seems like the most logical thing for them to develop doesn't it? Then when has the CW done anything logical? The fact that Ollie has already a prominent character on "Smallvlile" second only to Clark himself combined with the fact that Justin has had a couple failed pilot projects over the last couple of years might mean that DC ENT has any interest in pursuing a GA spin-off. Or it could mean they are still developing a big screen adaption of Green Arrow still.

As for "Raven" as I mentioned in the thread I started on this topic I could see this as DC ENT's reaction to "Cloak and Dagger" from Marvel TV which is currently in development. Raven does have an incredibly cool big bad built right into her mythos that they could spend a couple seasons building up to. I do fear though that whoever develops this would be too tempted to make this too Twilight-esque. It also brings the question as to the current status of "Blue Beetle" which seemed like the inevitable spin-off written in stone a few months ago. I'm guessing more and more that won't be developed.

Re: CW looking to develop a Raven series

A half-demon teenage goth girl heroine does seem like it would fit right in with VAMPIRE DIARIES and SUPERNATURAL. Plus the DC pedigree might lure in some SMALLVILLE fans looking for a new fix.

Works for me.

I think that's the idea! It's actually kind of brilliant.

Re: CW looking to develop a Raven series

As a character in the Titans show a few years back, Raven was good fun. If her personality was the same for this series (Daria as a superhero, basically) it could be a little more than the usual gothic emo-chick fare.

If they were to have a comedic element in the series, Raven would need a lighter character to bounce off of (like Beast Boy in the cartoon).
