Ruby Rose’s Batwoman made her debut in the three-part “Elseworlds” Arrowverse crossover on The CW. In that story, Green Arrow, Flash, and Supergirl travel to Gotham City to confront Dr. John Deegan over his changes to reality. Along the way, they meet Kate Kane, aka Batwoman, who has become Gotham’s new vigilante after the mysterious disappearance of Batman (and Bruce Wayne).
Before “Elseworlds,” it was reported that The CW had plans for a Batwoman spinoff series. Now, it’s moving forward.
The CW has issued an official pilot order for Batwoman, written by
Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries). David Nutter will direct; he previously helmed the pilots for Smallville, Arrow, and The Flash. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Geoff Johns are executive producing. If ordered to series, the pilot will likely premiere in fall 2019.
Batwoman will focus on Kate Kane’s adventures in Gotham, as she seeks to snuff out the criminal resurgence in the wake of Batman’s absence. It would serve as The CW’s sixth ongoing DC Comics series, and the fifth one set in the Arrowverse.
Stay tuned for more news as we have it.
