The CW Developing Lesbian 'Batwoman' TV Series
The CW is putting out the Bat Signal!
The network is reportedly developing a "Batwoman" TV series from its "Arrow"-verse mastermind producer Greg Berlanti and former "Vampire Diaries" producer Caroline Dries.
Batwoman was already set to be introduced in December as part of The CW's annual DC crossover event featuring "Arrow," "The Flash," "Legends of Tomorrow," and "Supergirl."
The series would center on Kate Kane, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter. Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, she soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman and is 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.
The character was a trailblazer when she debuted (in her second incarnation). She was the first-ever lesbian superhero title DC character. Now, she'll be the first gay lead character, male or female, of a live-action superhero show.
