It would seem that the Arrowverse is prepared to grow its line up once more. With CW juggling a large number of superhero arrangement nowadays, another report has affirmed the network has greenlit a pilot for Batwoman with Ruby Rose suiting up as the heroine.
As indicated by another piece by The Hollywood Reporter, The CW has chosen to seek after a solo series for Kate Kane. The character made her Arrowverse debut towards the end of last year during a yearly crossover, and the ‘Elseworlds’ arc helped Rose make a fanbase with Batwoman fans.
With a pilot order in the books, The CW has entrusted Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries) to regulate the show as showrunner with Greg Berlanti going about as an executive producer. With respect to the director, the pilot will be administered by David Nutter who did the pilots for The Flash, Arrow, and Game of Thrones.
Right now, there is no word on what a full series for Batwoman could resemble, but fans have experienced Kate as of now. The character ventured out in the ‘Elseworlds’ crossover effectively, leaving heaps of fans to commend Rose. Thanks to The Hollywood Reporter, a conditional blurb about Batwoman has gone live, and the description expands upon the identity that Kate set together last year.
“Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane (Rose) 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. 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 blurb reads.
With the Arrowverse’s line up developing, Batwoman stands to revive the franchise and add another female lead to The CW’s comic book list.
“She is more fun because she’s a billionaire, she has ladies that love her,” Rose said before the Arrowverse crossover went live. “I think, for the most part, crossover-wise, she’s swaggy. She always knew who she was, but she’s really coming into knowing who she is in the crossover, and with Batwoman as well. It’s not the first time she’s put on the suit.”
