Batwoman TV Show Is Happening at The CW

Greg Berlanti Developing Batwoman TV Series for the CW

Batwoman was previously announced to debut in a December 2018 DC-CW crossover event between Arrow, The Flash, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl. Variety reports the network is developing a Batwoman TV show.

The lesbian superhero's story revolves around the story of Kate Kane, an overachieving military student who was dismissed from the military academy for her sexuality and gender preference. "Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope". Perhaps we can expect to hear more later this week from San Diego Comic-Con? Kate is also willing to do whatever it takes to make sure justice is served, even at the expense of her own personal relationships, which sounds like the kind of drama that will fit right into the Arrowverse.

Keeping it in the family, The Vampire Diaries' out lesbian Caroline Dries will pen the Batwoman script.

However, this iteration of the hero was wiped out of DC's continuity during 1985's seminal limited series, Crisis on Infinite Earths. Notably, it will be the first live-action superhero series with an openly gay lead, considering the character has been written as a Jewish lesbian since her reintroduction as Kate Kane in 2006.

By the time autumn rolls around, users will be able to update the computer to the recently unveiled operating system Mojave. Apple has updated its MacBook Pro models, with faster processors that will switch performance speeds up several notches.

The original Batwoman was Kathy Kane and first appeared in DC Comics in 1956 as a female counterpart to Batman and who worked with Bat-Girl as her sidekick, the paper said. DC Entertainment's former head, Geoff Johns, will be one of the executive producers of the show. But it's the first time an openly gay superhero would get top billing in a live-action show or movie.

Casting for the role is about to begin, and what Arrowverse show she will premier on has not yet been stated.

The US charity GLAAD, which campaigns for LGBT representation in the media, welcomed the prospect of more gay characters on television.

In May, Arrow star Stephen Amell unveiled Batwoman's impending crossover appearance at The CW's upfronts presentation.
