Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

Kate Kane returns to Batwoman but not as Batwoman.

Quote:

Batwoman has a new Kate Kane.

The CW's superhero drama has cast Wallis Day to take over the role that was established by Ruby Rose in season one.

As revealed at the end of Sunday's episode, the character of Kane was revealed to be alive yet unrecognizable due to injuries she sustained in a plane crash at the beginning of season two. She is shown bandaged and being held hostage. The British-born Day (Krypton, The Royals) will play this "altered version" of Kane moving forward.

I'll believe it when I see it. They've been talking about a reboot movie and other shows for years.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

The Euromillions is £107m on Tuesday. I would love to give him a blank cheque so he can get all the series' creative team, directors and producers back to do whatever they want without interference from MGM or the networks. SG1 and Atlantis are absolutely fantastic and more can only be a good thing.

Much as you may want MGM out of the way they own the franchise. No MGM, no Stargate.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

They can "own" it but I just want no interference. You hear stories all the time of networks or distributors butting in and changing story arcs of season finales. I want the team to have complete autonomy and MGM can handle the distribution side of things. There are so many franchises (e.g. Marvel) that can serve as the perfect example. Leave them to do their thing and you shall reap the rewards.

Marvel’s not such a good example.

All continuity in the MCU is tightly controlled by Marvel Studios. That’s why Kevin Fiege’s name is all over everything, and has been from the outset. Marvel Television’s own record was less than stellar ... Agents of Shield is very much the exception that proves the rule, with Cloak and Dagger, Agent Carter and Inhumans all stuttering thanks to Marvel Television’s difficulty in maintaining control of either the production process, or creative input.

Marvel Television no longer exists, and all new TV output for Disney+ is managed directly by Marvel Studios, with Fiege as executive producer. Which is why it’s so good.

It clearly is and you have just made my point for me. No meddling by the tv networks or Disney and Marvel strikes gold. All I am asking for is the same freedom for any future Stargate series.

How does that make your point for you? Marvel Studios is an absolute behemoth, worth $4 billion the day Disney bought it. It's about a gazillion miles away from what you're asking with regards to Stargate, which appears to be that Michael Shanks and his mates be allowed to re-start production on a property owned by MGM, a studio of of comparable value to Marvel, without significant oversight by the studio.

What would be the chances of Robert Downey Jr being allowed to produce an Iron Man prequel TV series in the MCU without close oversight from Feige and his staff at Marvel Studios? Absolute zero. The Marvel films, and the new Marvel TV shows, are a runaway success because Marvel Studios is firmly in control.

That, incidentally, is not a pitch for the studio system, or to claim everything a major studio does is always better than anything produced or exec produced by an actor with a personal stake in a project. Far from it. I just don't recognise the categories you're sketching out here. Marvel Studios' MCU project works because the person in creative control is exceptionally good at what he does. Marvel Television had inconsistent levels of success because the same level of vision and control did not exist there.

Stargate, likewise, would not succeed just because the studio that owns the property is kept at arms length, because there's nothing intrinsically bad about that system of production. It very much depends on who the creative lead is, not which office they're sitting in.
