Hold it. When we last see Autolycus, on H:TLJ, he's off with his wife to become a banker [ominous]. He's not going to train Tara in thievery..
Besides, Tara turned honest, and is on her way to domesticity-see A TALE OF TWO MUSES.

Gods can appear however they want (Zeus was played by like half a dozen different actors) and Kevin Smith wasn't even the first one to play Ares. But the veteran fans might be very uncomfortable with that. Maybe better to invent a new character to fill that niche.

And it's a little odd as JGM's previous updates indicated that the script was being updated in accordance with NBC's feedback, NOT Rob Tapert's feedback. Unless it needed to be approved by NBC before it was submitted to Rob Tapert. But, NBC has the money and Rob Tapert is the Executive Producer, so I would have thought it would be the other way around.

I didn't really want a reboot of the type they were planning, but he seemed to actually care... I'm not sure some new hired gun would.
Very disappointing. Although I would prefer a limited revival with Lawless and O'Connor BEFORE a reboot, IF there was to be a reboot, then I had faith that JGM would have written and produced an entertaining show that respected the original series while still charting its own unique course.
I wonder what that means for the future. Will NBC look at some kind of limited revival (TV movie or miniseries) to gauge interest in the "brand". Did NBC ultimately consider that the "Xena" brand isn't worthy of any significant investment at this time, especially when they're pursuing somewhat similar properties like Witchblade (i.e. similar in the minds of the executives - female lead action fantasy series)? Did JGM simply get a better offer elsewhere and asked to be let go as show runner because of all of the delays and NBC will now look for a new show runner for the reboot?
