Batwoman TV Show Is Happening at The CW

An openly gay lesbian lead would be the first for The CW's DC Comics shows, though they've certainly been quite progressive with their characters over the years.

And whoever ends up playing Batwoman will actually show up alongside the heroes of those shows, as she'll crop up in one of the DCTV's annual crossovers later this year. Television where the company recently extended its overall deal. If the pilot is picked up, the series could air in 2019.

Already, it's been announced that Batwoman (aka Kate Kane) will appear in the four-way crossover between The CW's DC series: Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow.

If you care to go back to the character's beginning, you should get your paws on a copy of Detective Comics #233 (1956), in which Kate was introduced as a love interest for Batman. It will be the first time Batwoman has ever appeared in a live-action production. The Silver Age Batwoman is best known as Kathy Kane, who was created in order to offset rumors that Batman and Robin were homosexuals.

Kathy Kane was later dropped as a character by DC in 1964 when editor Julius Schwartz decided that he wanted to take the Batman books in a different direction. This version is named Kate Kane, a tough-as-nails former military school student, and is actually Bruce Wayne's cousin on his mother's side.

Of all the members of the Bat-family, Batwoman is probably the most similar to Batman.

With Batwoman, the CW is following the strategy it used for The Flash, whose central character was introduced in a two-episode arc on Arrow in December 2013.

Others are more optimistic. Additionally, if BATWOMAN receives a pilot order, it's to be expected that the same actress who portrays her in the crossover event will be involved in the solo TV series as well. From there, I would move onto Batwoman: Hydrology from J. H. Williams and William Haden Blackman. It's written by Marguerite Bennett, with pencils by Fernando Blanco, Steve Epting, and Stephanie Hans. And, while details are still scarce, CW president Mark Pedowitz said, "We are adding the city of Gotham into the Arrowverse". We're looking forward to it!
