‘Batwoman’ series coming to The CW
Our first look at Ruby Rose as Kate Kane - AKA Batwoman - came in the December episodes of ‘Elseworlds’ on the CW.
Apart from her, the DCTV crossover series included Green Arrow, Supergirl, the Flash and more.
There was speculation early on that Batwoman may very well become its own series on the network following her cameos and today it appears we have confirmation of that as The CW has ordered a pilot episode into production with David Nutter (‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Arrow’, ‘The Flash’) coming on board to direct.
Here is the official description of the series:
“Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane (star Ruby Rose) soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”
If the pilot gets picked up for a full season run (which is likely based on the success of the network’s current DC show lineup) it would not only be a new female-lead superhero series but it will also be the first ever superhero show to feature an openly gay female lead.
If you didn’t catch the ‘Elseworlds’ episodes when they originally aired a few weeks back, they will be re-airing starting next Monday.
Fingers crossed the series gets picked up for next season's show roster as it would be a great addition to the networks expansive DC universe!
