CW Developing Solo BATWOMAN Show for 2019

Greg Berlanti Developing Batwoman TV Series for the CW

Batwoman TV Series In Works At the CW With Groundbreaking Lesbian Superhero Lead From Caroline Dries & Greg Berlanti

Batwoman was reestablished into existence in 2006 in the form of Kate Kane, a Jewish LBGTQ character, one of the first-openly gay characters in the DC universe.

The series takes place in the same city of Gotham that Batman calls home and is lead by Kate Kane - an crimefighter with 'a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind'. "In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope". Berlanti Productions will produce in association with Warner Bros. Sara Lance, the "captain" of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, is bisexual; Black Lightning's Anissa Pierce is out and proud; Supergirl lead Alex Danvers had a very well done coming out story and a trans character is on the way for Supergirl; Arrow has Curtis Holt; and The Flash has the occasionally appearing Pied Piper, among others.

Batwoman already has been a trailblazer for LGBTQ+ representation in comics. The character is set to be introduced during the annual Arrowverse crossover event this December, which was revealed back in May during the network's upfront presentation.

In recent years, Batwoman (real name Katherine Kane) has become a big part of the extended Batman family. Geoff Johns, who recently stepped down as the head of DC Entertainment, will also executive produce.

And while this is a sweet gesture from a man who misses his child, I WISH he'd stop harping on to the press about it. Eventually, it was announced he wouldn't attend because he was recovering from a heart attack.

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

Even more exciting: this could potentially open the doors for even more Batfamily characters to enter The CW's growing superhero universe, including the Caped Crusader himself.

Batwoman, the first openly gay DC superhero, would also add to the CW's recent track record of inclusion on its airwaves. The series would debut in 2019.

Dries has superhero credentials - she started her writing career on the CW/WBTV Smallville before a seven-season run on The Vampire Diaries, on which she rose to executive producer and showrunner. "For the very first time appearing, we'll be fighting alongside Batwoman, which is terrific". The same actress will likely be the star of the new series.
