Stephen Amell Teases Ruby Rose’s Batwoman Costume Test

The Arrowverse is about to get even bigger this fall when Batwoman makes her debut in the annual multi-show crossover before spinning off into her own TV series. The CW seems to be already plowing ahead with the new heroine’s adventures, too, as Ruby Rose was recently cast as Kate Kane. And now, it’s looking like she’s already had her first costume test.

Arrow star Stephen Amell took to Twitter this week to share a very oblique post. He wrote: “Watching someone try on a superhero suit for the first time never gets old.” The Oliver Queen actor didn’t add a hashtag or an emoji to allude to what he’s talking about here, but it stands to reason that he’s referring to Rose, suggesting he’s already witnessed the actress don her cape and cowl for the first time.

Amell has certainly seen a

"Supergirl" - The New Movie

With Marvel Studios touting the female superhero 'Captain Marvel' as the next big thing, DC and Warners will produce a live-action "Supergirl" for the big screen, that could include 'Comet' the 'Superhorse' and 'Streaky' the 'Supercat' for a family audience:

'Supergirl' aka 'Kara Zor-El', debuted in DC's "Action Comics" #252 (May 1959), created by writer Otto Binder and illustrator Al Plastino...

....as the cousin of 'Superman', sharing his super powers and vulnerability to 'Kryptonite'.

"...she is the last survivor of 'Argo City', which had survived the explosion of the planet 'Krypton' and drifted through space. During the roughly thirty years Argo City traveled through space, Zor-El met and married 'Alura', daughter of 'In-Ze', who in turn bore their daughter, 'Kara' and the adolescent Kara was sent to Earth by Zor-El in a rocket, to be raised by her cousin 'Kal-El'.

WB Searching For A Female Director To Helm Supergirl Movie

Like some of you reading this, I was surprised to learn last week that Warner Bros. are looking to develop a Supergirl movie, primarily due to the fact that the character also headlines a TV show that’s about to begin its fourth season. Then again, if the film and television divisions can lay claim to their own distinct versions of the Flash and Superman, then I guess we can have two Kara Zor-Els coexisting.

Of course, it’s all but assured that the small screen’s Melissa Benoist won’t be pulling double duty by playing the Maiden of Might in the feature film, so expect to see another actress donning the red and blue attire. But before we find out who’ll be cast, odds are that a director will first be attached to the picture.

Speaking of which, Deadline has learned that the studio is in search

Female Director Scorecard: Warner Bros Lining Up Its Superheroes

Exclusive: It was a female director who gave the industry and Warner Bros the highest overall summer film last year with $412.5 million at the domestic box office and provided the studio the wind to sail past Disney as the first to win the $2 billion domestic box office race. Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman made the industry sit up and take notice when the Superhero origin film opened to $103.2M domestically and $228M internationally. It was one of only three films last year the studio released from female directors. The others were Denise Di Novi’s Unforgettable and Stella Meghie’s Everything, Everything (an MGM co-production). New Line had zero, but these numbers are changing, and for the better.

We’ve come a long way since Jeffrey Katzenberg entrusted a female director who had only previously worked in TV — Mimi Leder — to helm DreamWorks’ first live-action title, The Peacemaker. That sent tongues

Ruby Rose Quits Twitter Following Trolling Over ‘Batwoman’ Casting

Ruby Rose Quits Twitter Following Trolling Over ‘Batwoman’ Casting
Ruby Rose has become the latest actor to abandon a social media account due to online trolling. The Australian actress, who co-stars with Jason Statham in this weekend’s global box office champ “The Meg,” quit Twitter and deactivated public comments on her Instagram account over the weekend following social media backlash against her casting as “Batwoman” in The CW’s “Arrowverse,” which was announced last week.

The openly gay actor faced a range of criticism over her casting as the character, reintroduced by DC Comics in 2006 as a lesbian of Jewish descent. Some of that criticism focused on Rose not being Jewish, but the comments that appear to have caused her to leave Twitter were those suggesting she wasn’t the right actress to play a lesbian superhero.

Before deleting her Twitter account, Rose posted a series of tweets addressing the issue, which she described as “the funniest most

While Arrow was the original superhero show in the universe, fans have fallen in love with all of the DC comic shows. With the recent announcement that Batwoman will be joining the established characters, fans are excited to see what the future will bring.

Arrow: The Complete Sixth Season Blu-ray Review

Having to keep track of so many series these days, there are very few that I make it a point to acquire each and every season. After all, a person has only so much time, money and shelf space. But when it comes to Arrow, I can’t help adding the next chapter to my collection once it arrives on home video.

That said, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed taking in season 6 in its entirety over the past week or so. Though I did originally tune in to watch it live, I certainly didn’t mind a second tour on Blu-ray because there was just so much going on this year.

Long story short, the saga resumes not long after Team Arrow and friends were caught in the blast caused by Prometheus on Lian Yu, with pretty much everyone except the mother of Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) child making it out alive.
