Batwoman to be first superhero show with openly gay lead

Since the CW Network has already revealed Kate's involvement in their crossover event this fall, this news doesn't come as much of a shock.

Entertainment website Variety reports that American television network The CW is developing the series that, if picked up, would air in 2019. The character will also be a highly-trained street fighter and is in the middle of her fight against the resurgence of criminal's in the fictional city. "In a city desperate for a saviour, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope".

Attached to write and executive produce BATWOMAN is THE VAMPIRE DIARIES alum Caroline Dries.

The original Batwoman was Kathy Kane and first appeared in DC Comics in 1956 as a female counterpart to Batman and who worked with Bat-Girl as her sidekick, the paper said.

The character was reintroduced in 2006 as a gay woman called Kate Kane. If ordered by The CW, Batwoman would join Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl and Black Lightning on the network's slate of DC-based series. "For the very first time appearing, we'll be fighting alongside Batwoman, which is terrific".
