Azarath Metrion Zinthos, Has the CW Conjured a Smallville Replacement with Raven?

Apparently putting rumors of a Blue Beetle live action series on the back burner, word now is that the Teen Titan Raven may be in consideration for CW's Smallville replacement. I don't know how true this is, but it has a ring of truth. I mean, I could see Raven fitting in nicely with the CW core demographic of teen girls. It also has the supernatural element going for it as well as much team-up potential down the road. But would Colonel Tigh appear? Only time will tell.

Just for the record though only Birds of Prey has actually made it into production and all of the following have fallen short at various stages of development attempting to join in Smallville's success: Bruce Wayne (from whose ashes Smallville actually arose), Starman, Aquaman, and the Graysons (featuring Robin). Rumors also persisted though plans never materialized for Supergirl, Green Arrow, the Justice League and Blue Beetle.
