There's been no confirmation either way. All three of the main cast have said they're still waiting to hear and nobody is dismissing it yet.

I feel like that premise was a very "strike while the iron's hot" kind of thing hoping to ride the wave of Crisis and Arrow ending, and now that the corpse of Oliver Queen is getting increasingly cold, the idea is seeming more and more unlikely.

From the description of Superman & Lois it looks like Dig won't be guest starring as the series has the Super-family moving back to Smallville.

Yeah, the January 2021 date is apparently contingent on restarting production in September. I also saw something recently about direction from CW executives to not have close quarters combat and love scenes in the shows so actors didn’t have to get in close proximity to each other?

I don't think this was too bold a claim. It took a little while to find its footing but I think about three episodes in C&D gets really good.

Yeah, most of the comic shows to me fell into good and/or fun. A few are good and fun (Doom Patrol) and some are fun (Arrow). I enjoy many different aspects of them. The CW shows are largely formulaic but are basically comfort food, except Legends of Tomorrow of course which is amazing fun.

I couldn't get into Batwoman though. Supergirl was getting iffy until Lex came on. C&D is great.

Cloak and Dagger's pretty alright, rough start, though.

Certainly not as bad as Agents of Shield or Arrow or anything.

If people are looking for a comic show to watch, I would highly suggest Legion. Pretty much every actor is fantastic through out the series, the soundtrack is incredibly deep/imaginative and it has some of the most beautifully constructed scenes. The story gets a lot more abstract in the second and third seasons.

At least give the first episode a chance if you haven't watched anything else. I can't think of a better introduction episode of a series.

Yeah, I still have to watch the final season and I really need to.

Legion is such mind-bendingly good TV. It's just on the good side of becoming *almost* incomprehensible, but pulls back enough to really wow with it's visual story telling.

My favorite moments are Season 1ep7 Bolero sequence and opener for 2ep11 (Behind Blue Eyes battle)

I sort of thought the second season of Legion climbed a little too far up its own rear end, but that they rebounded with a really strong final season.

The JSA episodes of Smallville were the only ones I really cared about, so it’s wild we’re getting a Stargirl show that is going to fully embrace the JSA, and even include the original Seven Soldiers.

Head's up for anyone who ditched out of Batwoman, the season finale completed their origin for Hush which means that yes, they've officially cast their Bruce Wayne with Warren Christie. He's the right age for someone who has been Batman for a while (mid 40s) and producers have confirmed that he is officially the Arrowverse Bruce going forward. Although for right now he's just going to be appearing as Hush.

I really wanted to like Bataan but I grew tired of Alice. Do they dump Alice eventually and if so are the episodes after Alice any good?

I should expand by saying I didn't hate Alice as a character but more hated her as a plot device that kept making Batwoman make stupid decisions over and over again.

This is funny to me because in Crisis, She recognized Kevin Conroy as Bruce and he looks nothing like this guy

No, but they do eventually burn all the bridges between Alice and her family so now she just wants to kill the bat like all good Gotham villains. It's also possible they intended to get rid of her in the original plan for the season, but that went out the window.

There's still too much focus on Kane family drama though. It was Kate vs Alice, and now it's Kate vs Alice and Kate vs her dad. At least Mary is still amazing.

Mary and Luke are the best parts of the show. The actress playing Alice is having a ball and is fun to watch.
