The CW has officially sent Batwoman to a series order, which seemed like a foregone conclusion with Arrow wrapping up next season. Starring Ruby Rose as Kate Kane, the first teaser trailer above gives us our first good glimpse of the character as she stands in her first solo live-action series.
Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries) penned the script and will serve as showrunner, while Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns will exec produce along with Greg Berlanti. While there’s no premiere date set just yet, expect to hear plenty more at SDCC later this year.
Arrow star, Stephen Amell, confirmed in a press conference today that The CW is taking the next step forward with its “Arrowverse” and introducing Kate Kane, aka Batwoman, to the universe, as well as her home city, Gotham City. Kate Kane was re-introduced to the DC Universe in the New 52, and has gone on to become one of the leading LGBTQ characters in all of comics.
We’re incredibly excited to announce that we’ll be doing another crossover event this fall on the CW, and we’ll be introducing a new character. For the very first time appearing, we’ll be fighting alongside Batwoman, which is terrific. The crossover is going to make it to air in December. I need to leave right now and start filming it.
