She's 36. That sounds about right for Batwoman.
Yes, but this is aCW show. They would tend to cast younger wouldn't they?

Not necessarily, it depends on the kind of story they want to tell. They ignored the younger and sexier New 52 Black Lightning for the older father of two young adult daughters.

Wow, they couldn't even wait for the crossover to announce the crossover's success.

Guess I'll get the ball rolling then: "WHEN BATMAN APPEARS???????????"

And when he does, will he eventually tell Kate how much better she is than him?

A great running gag would be Kate actively trying to avoid Batman while she's in action. With brief glimpses of him in the background and distance before she escapes his sight just to avoid having to confront him about being Batwoman.

They're looking for an out and open lesbian actress for the role.

Unless Cassidy Freeman is lesbian, she's not an option.

And why does the sexuality of the actress matter? A good actress (or actor for that matter) can do good romance scenes no matter what their actual attractions are in real life. This feels like a needless limitation on the casting dept for the sake filling a diversity quota. Typical.

Well I dropped these shows a long time ago and this so far is not changing my mind anytime soon. Now to just wait for the inevitable response of someone accusing me of being bigoted or some such nonsense.

I vote Cassidy Freeman for Batwoman. She's got experience with CW from her Smallville days.

I approve this.

Just as I said. They are planning a live-action series with that character, but The Ray just gets an animated series, when the actor was more than likely readily available to do a live-action series (since the show he was previously on was cancelled).
Well, his actor Russell Tovey is currently doing filming in the upcoming film The Good Liar, so he's busy and honestly, I don't think he'll do a full time gig anytime soon.

The show you're referring to that was cancelled before Tovey played the Ray, was it Looking or Quantico? Because Quantico was cancelled recently, not before.

Kate is supposed to be between 25 and 29 here.

Because the developers - Berlanti and Dries - want it to matter.

It was Quantico. I probably just got the dates mixed up.

That's stupid. It's called "acting" for a reason.

The resonance of Kate's personal life will inevitably mean more to someone who has lived the same consciousness, no different than with Black Lightning really.

I just think it's a dangerous precedent. I don't have any issue with them casting a lesbian actress but making that a requirement makes it seem like they're more interested in getting attention for being "woke" than turning out a quality product.

Why does focusing your effort automatically have to mean NOT getting the best person for the role, though?

Being both quality and socially conscious can be done at the same time, again no different than Black Lightning.
