A live-action Batwoman television series is in development at the CW for a possible 2019 debut, according to Deadline. Notably, it will be the first live-action superhero series with an openly gay lead, considering the character has been written as a Jewish lesbian since her reintroduction as Kate Kane in 2006.
Batwoman comes from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros.
The show's synopsis describes Kane as "an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city's criminal resurgence".
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.
While this would be the first DC TV series with a LGBTQ+ lead as Kate Kane is a lesbian, it is hardly the first instance of diversity in Berlanti's DC shows.
TVLine also reports the preference would be to find an actor between the ages of 25 and 29 who is lesbian, to accurately depict the Kate Kane from the DC Universe.
Greg Berlanti, the man behind the Arrowverse, among many other successful shows, is developing the new DC series with Caroline Dries, known for her work as showrunner on The Vampire Diaries. 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.
Casting is about to begin for an actress to play Batwoman in the DC crossover event in December.
DC Comics have been at the forefront of LGBT visibility in comics, recently featuring the first gay superhero couple with Midnighter and Apollo and introducing The Ray as a gay man in the The Ray Rebirth.
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!
