    I guess Batwoman will have to be 25% different next season then. :shifty:

    Oh, fuck, I love that idea. Loved her on Krypton.

    (Though reading the actual article, she was just responding to a fan's comment, not actively throwing her hat in the ring.)
    What's with the coy? Just tell us what you heard, guy.

    Sure, but I'd still prefer someone who's reasonably similar to her in appearance and personal presence and manner, just because I found her so striking to watch. Less like replacing William Hartnell with Patrick Troughton and more like replacing Leonard Nimoy with Zachary Quinto or Ethan Peck.

    I was trying to be cagey because I didn't want a certain poster here to get the impression that I was divulging confidential information, but because I was asked a direct question, I'll go ahead and provide an answer: I was browsing Twitter and came across a Tweet that indicated that CW and Arrowverse alumnus Peyton Elizabeth List was possibly being rather heavily eyed as Ruby's replacement by the Batwoman producers.

    It's a joke and not meant to be taken seriously.

    Who cares what they claim, it's all bullshit meant to make money from the YouTube algorithm. They just tell the psycho and bigoted fanboys everything they want to hear so they can claim that the voices in their head have a source.

    I'm cross-posting some comments I've made elsewhere regarding the most recent rumors about the search for the new Batwoman:

    Could start the show with Kate looking in a mirror inside a locker showing Ruby in the reflection then have someone say "Kate!" and she closes the door and it's whoever and move on.

    Personally, my favorite is the soap opera approach where they just flat out start the show with the narrator saying "The part of Kate Kane/Batwoman will now be played by Jane Doe". :lol:

    Batwoman meets Quantum Leap.

    Does that make Luke the new Al?

    Or the Roseanne thing when the cast change becomes a ongoing gag.

    So... You're saying Scott Bakula should take over the role? ;)


    I consider that a perfectly reasonable idea.

    In the 1958 pilot of 77 Sunset Strip, Edd Byrnes played the villain, but he was such a hit with preview audiences that they added him as a regular with the same mannerisms but a new name ("Kookie"). To "explain" it, they actually had star Efrem Zimbalist speak to the audience before the episode, explain what happened, and ask the viewers to just forget about what had happened to his character in the pilot. Which would never fly with today's canon-obsessed viewers. http://legendsrevealed.com/entertai...il-character-on-the-pilot-of-77-sunset-strip/

    Apparently I didn't watch enough QL, I only remember that now that you mention it.

    Wait, he's not?

    I wonder if maybe it's today's viewers that need such a statement. I think in times past people were less affected by such things.

    "In today's episode, the Klingons will be seen with ridges..."
