Batwoman series on The CW
 


Quote:

Batwoman could soon be coming to the “Arrow”-verse.

Variety has learned that The CW is developing a series about the DC superhero that would debut in 2019 should it get picked up. News of the development comes after the network announced in May that the character would appear in the annual crossover event between four of the CW’s DC shows: “The Flash,” “Arrow,” “Legends of Tomorrow,” and “Supergirl.”

In the series, Kate Kane, armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, 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

Caroline Dries will serve as the writer and executive producer on the project. Dries has a long history with CW, having worked as a writer and producer on “The Vampire Diaries” and the network’s new iteration of “Melrose Place.” She also worked as a writer on “Smallville,” which centered on Clark Kent before he become Superman. Dries is repped by WME.

Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter will also executive produce via Berlanti Productions. Geoff Johns, who recently stepped down as the head of DC Entertainment, will also executive produce. Berlanti Productions will produce in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Should the show get picked up–which seems more than likely–it would be Berlanti’s seventh show on The CW and 15th on the air overall, thus further cementing his record for most live-action shows on the air at one time. In addition to the four previously mentioned DC shows, he also produces the CW superhero drama “Black Lightning,” “Riverdale,” and the upcoming high school football drama “All American.”

Outside of The CW, he produces the upcoming dramas “God Friended Me” and “The Red Line” for CBS, “Blindspot” at NBC, “You” for Lifetime, “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” on Netflix, and “Titans” and “Doom Patrol” at the DC streaming service, DC Universe.

Batwoman, the first openly gay DC superhero, would also add to the CW’s recent track record of inclusion on its airwaves. The network currently boasts a wide range of diverse

Well you already ruined Supergirl, why not Batwoman too.

Of course they are. It’d be way too complicated to make a FUCKING Batman series. God forbid we get the television Batman confused with Affleck or the other 47 actors you are currently courting to replace him.

Actually, with the way Batwoman's comic books are the way the CW shows are written is pretty much spot on. If they do what they usually do they'll be pretty faithful to the comic books :lol

Not really a surprise but they are really overdoing the hero thing on CW. I would much prefer a Batman or even a Nightwing series, but you take what you can get.

This is coming a bit late to the party. The strong female lead has become a cliche at this point. It can still be really good like anything else. Subverting this cliche is what comes next. Then that'll get really old too when everyone does it.

So I'm not saying strong female lead is inherently a bad idea, I'm knocking making a checklist and checking off the items. That's how a lot of tv is made these days and that's probably how this will be made.

How much straight white male ass will she kick on this show? Is such a thing even possible...yes it is.


Also CW immediately makes me lol and not care.

I called this in the Batwoman/Arrowverse thread, if it leads to a proper BATMAN series I honestly don't care how we get there. That's decades overdue .
