Supergirl Season 5 Blu Ray Release and More

Well it's been a little while since we've wrapped the fifth season finale of Supergirl. Covering a season is a lot of work and we tend to take a little break after a season wraps. No rest for the wicked though as we are covering Stargirl as it happens! What a fun show that's been! Today we wanted to bring you a few minor news stories regarding our Girl of Steel. First is that Blu Ray and DVD sales of Supergirl season 5 will be out September 8th this year. Secondly, if you're following our sister site Batwoman.tv you've likely heard that not only did Ruby Rose quit Batwoman, they aren't even recasting her role. Not sure what this means for Supergirl but since Kate and Kara had such a close relationship, we are curious if there will be repercussions felt on Supergirl with this news.

Let us know what you think in the comments below and in our forum! Keep us advertisement free and visit the support page!

Well I just pre-ordered this morning the blu rays of Supergirl Season 5 alongside The Flash Season 6,Batwoman Season 1 and Deathstroke:Knights & Dragons.Big DC buying spree.lol.

I'm waiting on ordering DC Legends Of Tomorrow Season 5 which comes out on 9/22 so I can order it with Stargirl Season 1 which comes out on blu ray on 9/29 but isn't up for pre-order yet where I get these(Best Buy).What I ordered today comes out in late August and early September.The last two are late September.

I ordered Pennyworth Season 1 at the beginning of June from Amazon.It was released this past Tuesday but my copy still says,"Not yet shipped We will email you when we have an estimated delivery date."Hopfully it comes soon.

Quoting Ja50n1c:
Looking forward to season 5 on optical disc.

Not sure how well known it is on here, but the Supergirl disc releases (DVD and Blu-ray) up to this point suffer from low bitrates. The Blu-rays have some of the lowest bitrates I know of for a typical Blu-ray release. That is they are overly compressed. Don't get me wrong the image will still look good for a digitally recorded show but you got to wonder if it could have looked better.

In fact I would say it would as I have the Crisis on Earth X and Supergirl season 3 DVD. If you compare the episodes from both discs, the Earth X version is slightly sharper as unusually they did not compress the episode anywhere as much.

Not entirely surprising. The TV arm of WB home video has a history of playing it cheap.

I am eagerly awaiting season 5 of SuperGirl on Blu-Ray and DVD. In the meantime, I have been participating on the forum in watching SuperGirl starting with season 1 episode 1.

Sorry to hear about the news that the role of Batwoman will not be recasted. The only repercussion I can see that having on SuperGirl is that the two will not appear in a crossover together. There is always the Flash and Superman that SuperGirl can appear in a crossover with. Other than that, I don't see BatWoman's demise as having an effect on Supergirl except for maybe her viewing time being changed to hopefully an 8:00 PM viewing time. I will say that I thought SuperGirl and Batwoman had great camaraderie between them - I will miss that and the opportunities it could have presented.

Just read TV line article. So there will still be a Batwoman just not by the name of Kate Kane. She will be a whole new personality that will now become Batwoman. So now I really don't think this will have any impact on SuperGirl or her airing time. Hopefully the camaraderie between the new Batwoman and SuperGirl will be a good one so that we may have opportunities for the two to appear together. From the description of the new type being chosen for the part of Batwoman - SuperGirl will be the calmer, steady thinking character while the new Batwoman will be kind of wild in her thinking and acting . Should be interesting. Here is the article in case you did not see it.

Looking forward to the Supergirl Season 5 Blu Ray,as well as Batwoman Season 1,Flash Season 6 and Legends Season 5.All of them are coming with the Crisis disk that came with the Arrow Season 8 Blu Ray.Hopfully Black Lightning Season 3 gets a disk release.Season 2 only got a DVD MOD one from Warner Archives.

I actually get all the live action DC shows.My copy of the HBO Watchman Limited Series came in yesterday and at the end of this month Pennyworth Season 1 comes out on Blu Ray MOD from Warner Archives.

I just finished watching my Swamp Thing Blu Ray set tonight right before getting on here.lol

I've basically been watching my DC Universe Blu Rays sets recently(Titans Season 1,Doom Patrol Season 1,Swamp Thing).I'm planning to re-watch Krypton Season 2(SyFy series) via my Blu Ray and than Titans Season 2.

And of course I'm watching Stargirl as it airs via The CW.Since I don't have DC Universe,I rely on the blu ray releases for the other shows.I do have HBO MAX which means I'll be able to watch Doom Patrol Season 2 when it begins airing at the end of the month.

I bought Doom Patrol S1 on Bluray sight unseen and didn't regret it in the slightest.

I am a fan of the Swamp Thing character, but I'll wait until it airs on CW before sinking money into a cancelled series. :sad:

The diverse concepts and tones of the DC offerings mean there are a lot of options. It really is a golden age for comic book adaptations.

Very good news regarding the DVD/Blu-ray release for those intending to pick up their copy.

As for the Batwoman news, that's certainly a developing story and one to follow. I hope the overall changes are positive and that there is a crossover involving Batwoman and Supergirl at some point in the future.

Stay tuned! It will be an interesting ride between now and the New Year. ;-)

Quoting RedDog:
I can’t help feel the “we aren’t recasting” news is meant to divert attention. Why take your 3rd highest rated show and throw away almost all the relationships built in Season 1? I can see throwing it all away if the show was not well received, but with the exception of those who will never like it cause they will only accept Bat MAN or cannot accept a lesbian lead superhero, the show was doing a good job building characters the viewers found interesting and the pacing did not drag.



Comicbook.com suggested it was an intentional misdirect to have actors come in and provide a "new" take on Kate Kane.m, as opposed to giving their take on Ruby. Another theory is that Wilder will actually be the Robin (sidekick) to Kate's Batwoman. Perhaps she'll need to put on the batsuit temporarily as an interim Batwoman while Kate recovers from an accident.

I took think this is a red herring of sorts. So many possibilities, but Batwoman needs to be Kate Kane; otherwise everything else unravels.
