Scintillating commentary, uche

Interesting move

They don't want to be pigeonholed into who they choose as a replacement

I don't work for the CW but as someone who has been watching it and the two networks it used to be for the majority of my life I have a pretty good idea what they're thinking

They want a lesbian woman of color as their main character to tick the boxes the next time advertising season rolls around and they want it to be an original (or at the very least obscure) character so they don't have to deal with any complaints
Every child, woman or man
Opinion don't matter, stick to your plan
If they judge, still don't budge
Don't give an inch, don't give a nudge
Life's a bitch, leave you battered and bent
Lose or win, gotta hold up your chin

That's not going to work. Batwoman can't be handed down to just anybody off the streets.

And why, pray tell, is that

Uh, Elongated Man is out of the show because of some "awful joke" tweets from a few years ago by the actor. It feels like the same situation as James Gunn (in that they were giant edgelord jokes and he regrets them now - shoulda bleached your timeline faster, man) but it doesn't seem like they're gonna walk that decision back. Shame, I really liked what they did with the character and the actor's performance. We'll see how fast they'll dump the Sue Dibney storyline next season.
I hope the guy can rebuild his reputation and do stuff again.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

It will be hard to do with all of the alt-lefts and alt-rights stirring up trouble on the internet.
