I work hard on these subject titles... :P

DCTV seems to be doing awfully well right now, and even a little better after the Crisis. A new Stargirl show, a new Superman show, probably a Green Lantern show... they must be tearing up the charts with ratings!

So... what would you like to see on the CW? Any bits, any new shows, any actors who need more exposure? Limit to maybe five or six, but what are you wanting?

Me? I want the following:
ITEM: A new show based on Wonder Girl. Sure, it'll mess up the movies - as if that hasn't ALREADY happened. It introduces the Wonder Girl character; it ties into Wonder Woman; it could be set on Earth-2, if it warrants a Stargirl or JSA team up or crossover; Lynda Carter can CERTAINLY cameo as the ex-president of the United States; it's a teen show; and (in my mind) super strength effects are the easiest to simulate. None of this sword and shield stuff; just her bracelets, her tiara, and her magic lasso.

ITEM: A guest appearance or semi recurring role by Burt Ward. (God know the guy paid his due already!) Perhaps on Batwoman. I know they mention Batman, not Robin - but that doesn't mean he wasn't there. And we know he existed pre-Crisis!

ITEM: I want an arc in Supergirl set in the 31st century with the Legion of Super-Heroes. Maybe not all fourteen thousand of them, but on last week's Supergirl episode with Mxyzptlk, I figured that DCTV already has shown enough heroes for a good squad of Legionnaires. Supergirl, Superman, XS, Mon-El, Toyman, Dream Girl, Saturn Girl, Brainiac 5... so I think a half season would be fun. Perhaps Mordru, and that would allow his introduction against Stargirl (if they're gonna use him.)

ITEM: Is anyone else looking for a crossover between Elastic Lad and Elongated Man? Flash has enough light moments that I think it would work great!

One last note... if you are not watching Black Lightning, you are depriving yourself of some damned good stories. Also, it seems that the story is leaning towards introducing the Outsiders. This show keeps getting better every season, and continues to do so. If you want some great bingeing... hit at the least the past couple of seasons of BL.

Probably not something that a CW audience would grab onto, but the
original Secret Six and the CoTU would be fun. Maybe better suited to
the upcoming HBO Max.

I'd be very interested in a Legion of Super-Heroes series.

As for adding a new character into an existing show, I'd love to see Booster Gold added to Legends of Tomorrow as the whole unsung heroes jumping around the timeline to fix anomalies thing is what his second series was all about.

I'm interested in seeing where the STARGIRL series goes and how well they utilize the Justice Society.

Wonder Girl had a presence on TITANS but that series is a big mess.

In a shocking development, Ruby Rose has departed the lead role in BATWOMAN... producers say the role will be recast for the 2nd season in 2021.

-C!

Charles, part of the premise of STARGIRL is that the Injustice Society killed most of the JSA. Particularly the big guns. I am NOT happy with that at all, as the JSA is my favorite DC team. In particular the original and 70's era versions.

Supergirl and the Legion in the future would be a great two or three parter! They could even borrow that Waid '00s idea where she is sure she is dreaming it all (at least at first).

Black Lightning has been cool what I've seen of it, and I did watch the more mature viewers Doom Patrol series and enjoyed it well enough... how about Mike Grell's Warlord? Or Paul Kupperberg's Arion Of Atlantis? I think superhero burnout might be a real thing...

From all the posters, we'll be seeing the Infinity Inc replacements from COIE. I suspect that some of the big guns like Flash and Green Lantern survived somewhere and can show up again. I'm pretty much expecting Geoff Johns' 00s JSA with a mix of original and legacy characters.

Need to rewatch the sequence again, but did everyone, both JSA and Injustice Society, have comic accurate costumes?

Michael - no, Brainwave did NOT have an accurate costume. But then... that's a long white night shirt a la the old year going out, so that's probably best.

The photo of the JSA looked pretty good costume-wise. And their costumes in the fight looked accurate, except for the Huntress.

Stargirl is Geoff Johns' baby. He seems to have a controlling hand in it, so it ought to be pretty good. And the only issue I had with the Pilot is that it seems pretty obviously a two-hour show that they cut in half. Ah, well... so it goes.

Question...so I'm a fan of Flash and Legends. After
Crisis, I understand that all the universes were merged
(except for the cinematic one I'm assuming even though
they were part of the crossover). So, these new shows,
such as Titans and Stargirl, are they part of the
Arrowverse?

As to the original post, again as a fan of Flash, I
would love to see Ralph and Sue get their own spin-off.

Nope. At the conclusion of the Crisis crossover, it was revealed that the multiverse still exists, with the Arrowverse existing on one Earth and the other DC shows/movies existing on their own Earths.

I must not have been paying attention because i really
thought that everything merged. Granted, that comes from
Flash being the main one I watch and they seem to make
it a regular point that there is only one earth.
