Lesbian Batwoman is coming to a TV near you

The show's description, courtesy of the Hollywood Reporter, will embrace numerous aspects of Kate Kane, the secret identity of Batwoman, whose iteration was first introduced in 2006, from the comics including her sexuality. Also in-line to help executive produce the planned superhero drama are Berlanti and his Warner Bros.

The lesbian superhero's story revolves around the story of Kate Kane, an overachieving military student who was dismissed from the military academy for her sexuality and gender preference.

With the crossover set to feature the debut of Kate Kane / Batwoman, the news of Legends of Tomorrow's exclusion may come as a disappointment to fans who were hoping to see the Gotham City heroine meet Sarah Lance / White Canary. Should the live-action series get picked up, it'll be Berlanti's 7th show on the network and his 15th on-air series, overall.

Batwoman, the first openly gay DC superhero, would also add to the CW's recent track record of inclusion on its airwaves. At the time Dan Didio, co-publisher of DC Comics, said Kane was written as a lesbian because "we wanted to have a cast that is much more reflective of today's society and even today's fanbase".




Before her upcoming introduction as a part of The CW's annual DC series crossover event, it's been announced that a Batwoman TV series is in the works from DC's small screen conductor Greg Berlanti.

Casting for the role is about to begin, and what Arrowverse show she will premier on has not yet been stated.

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.

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! They already have Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl and Black Lightning, which debuted earlier this year.
