Fans React To The CW's New 'Batwoman' Television Series

The CW has put in development a Batwoman series for 2019 consideration. The Vampire Diaries showrunner Caroline Dries is set to write and executively produce the pilot.

The CW's slate of DC comic book shows is about to grow larger with a Batwoman series now in development at the network, reports Variety. But don't call her a hero yet. However, like many bats that have come before her, Kate is haunted by the demons of her past, and must confront them before she can be the symbol of hope that Gotham so desperately needs. She will executive produce alongside Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns.

Other LGBT characters within the Arrowverse include Arrow's gay Curtis Holt, Legends' bisexual Sara Lance, Supergirl lesbian Alex Danvers - who was briefly engaged to Detective Maggie Sawyer, one of Kate Kane's most noteworthy love interests in comic book lore - The Flash's Captain Singh and and "Crisis on Earth-X" crossover visitor Ray Terrill (who is now engaged to his Earth's Leo Snart). According to The Hollywood Reporter, a casting notice for the role will soon go out.

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.

He called her plan a "horrible" betrayal, but he told Putin only that NS2 would compete with U.S. exports of shale gas to Europe. Republican Patriots: Where are you???" tweeted John Brennan, said former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan.

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.

This version of Batwoman, Kate Kane, was introduced in 2006 as a socialite who dons a cape and cowl to fight crime in Gotham City. She also worked as a writer on "Smallville", which centered on Clark Kent before he become Superman.

DC Comics debuted Batwoman in the pages of Detective Comics #233 in 1956. On TV, Batwoman first appeared in animated series Batman: The Brave and the Bold, which premiered on Cartoon Network in 2008. But in the comics, she mostly exists on the periphery of Batman's "family" of orphans and Batgirls - she is a badass independent agent who doesn't need no Batman.

Unfortunately, we're not quite sure just who will be playing the title character of Batwoman, either in the crossover special or the hopeful series itself, so feel free to start wishlisting and speculating now!
