    You know thats how the world operates. Especially Hollywood. The more money you bring in, the safer you are.

    They obviously just arent interested in continuing the characters story full time at this moment. At least he isnt disappearing off our screens all of a sudden like Kate Kane.

    They would have been if Hartley Sawyer didn't write bad stuff and he wasn't fired

    I'm honestly more interested in Sue Dearbon than Ralph Dibney. It's not like Oliver Queen married Dinah Lance. He ended up with Felicity. So why does Sue have to be with Ralph? She can be independent of him. Natalie Dreyfuss was the most interesting addition to the cast for years.

    Does that mean that's how people should operate?
    Why do we want to try and be more like Arrow?

    Of course not. But also when your working you have to keep your job in mind when making certain comments.

    if you kill off ralph you might as well kill off sue as well. She is crucial to ralph's story. using ralph's abilities to recast the character is poor writing. starting in the flash comics back in1960 all the way up til now.. he has only one main base form and so he can't really hold a shapeshifting ability it is the way he was in comics and the way he was written in the show.. with the exception of the sinister six story.. but then they would have to crossover with batwoman for that so that will be a no.

    true.. but plastic man can change and keep a new form as elongated man can not.. plus plastic man is pretty much indestructible and intangible cause of the way he got his powers. it is explained in the comics how plastic man and elongated man are very different and also have different background stories and names.

    She's not really crucial to Ralph's story in the Arrowverse. You'd think that Black Canary would've been with Oliver Queen, but she wasn't. Not only was she killed off but then we ended up with an alternate universe version in the end. Ollie didn't even bring back the original one. And on top of that, Ollie married Felicity.

    So Sue could easily exist independently of Ralph.

    But anyway, they could easily recast Ralph, I agree.
