Batwoman To Join Stacked DC Lineup on the CW

Batwoman will be the first live-action superhero television series to have an openly gay main character.

The Arrowverse is about to expand once again. The CW has green lit Batwoman to join the stacked DC lineup already on the network. The character first appeared in 1956 as a love interest to the caped crusader, but since the relaunch of the comic in 2006 following Kate Kane, the superhero genre will be stepping into uncharted territory. When the comic was relaunched in 2006, Batwoman became DC’s most prominent character in the LGBTQ+ community. Batwoman will be the first live-action superhero television series to have an openly gay main character. The synopsis for the show is as follows;

Kate Kane is an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. She is armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind. However, she must “overcome her own demons” before emerging as a hero in Gotham City.

But we do not have to wait until 2019 to get our first glimpse of Kate as she will appear in an Arrow crossover this December.

If there is one thing DC is doing correctly at the moment, it is the Arrowverse. And Batwoman is going to fit in perfectly with the heroes that we have come to know and love over the past few seasons. The first season of Batwoman will drop in 2019.

I am Rebekah and I have a problem. A problem with entertaining people. I have been in the comedy world for over 10 years. I started out as an improv actor making fun and light of everything. Doing that felt rewarding, but I have to admit, I wanted more. I couldn’t get the taste of performing out of my mouth. Does that not sound a little creepy? I decided to start doing my own stand up show. I love to make fun of my family and anything that will make a normal person say what the fuck. The journey still continues, in 2009, I had a dream to create my own online magazine. This is the beautiful corner of craziness in front of you. I have been through hell in my life but being stopped is something that I will not let happen. I am a fighter and hope to make people realize it is ok to smile and think from time to time. It also helps being a nerd.
