Batwoman Set to Become First Lesbian Superhero TV Series

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.

It appears that the minds behind the show, including producers Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schecter and executive producer Geoff Johns, intend to bring Batwoman into the CW landscape through the crossover and use what happens there as the foundation to launch her solo series. "Grateful to the DC comics writers for reviving this hero and giving us a fun and complicated hero who reflects so many of us", she tweeted.

LONDON-Lesbian superhero Batwoman is powering towards a ground-breaking role as the star of her own television series. Perhaps we can expect to hear more later this week from San Diego Comic-Con? Once this happens, there will be two depictions of Gotham on two different networks, the other being Fox's Batman prequel series, Gotham. Kate is also willing to do whatever it takes to make sure justice is served, even at the expense of her own personal relationships, which sounds like the kind of drama that will fit right into the Arrowverse. It hails from former The Vampire Diaries executive producer Caroline Dries and the architect of the CW Arrowverse, Greg Berlanti.

The character will get her first official introduction in December during the network's annual comic crossover event.

She has since become the highest-profile openly gay character of any DC comic.

The network added that casting is currently underway for the lead actress to portray Batwoman in the coming crossover episodes and the series is now in development.

In the new series, she "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". It will be the first time Batwoman has ever appeared in a live-action production.

Lesbian superhero Batwoman has been in the news quite a bit recently.
