While fans of the Arrowverse are still screaming over the “Elseworlds” reveal that next year, we’ll be getting “Crisis on Infinite Earths”, the biggest news going into the crossover was that we would see the first live-action Batwoman.
Played by Ruby Rose, the character received positive feedback from fans and critics alike. As those who follow this sort of news know, with a good enough reaction, then there was a potential for a Batwoman series to happen.
It looks like the CW is more than ready to take the next step. A pilot has been greenlit for the series. If all goes well, then we’ll be seeing Batwoman on the schedule next year. They have some serious power behind the pilot as well, which will be directed by David Nutter.
Nutter has directed multiple episodes of Game of Thrones. Most know as a man who does a hell of good job directing pilots. Some shows he’s done the pilot for are Arrow, The Flash, Supernatural, Smallville, The Mentalist, and Without a Trace.
The CW also released the synopsis for the series, should it be given the go ahead to go to series.
“Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane (star Ruby 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.”
Batwoman is under consideration for a series order. You can see the character in “Elseworlds”, which can currently be viewed on the CW’s website.
