Batwoman gets pilot order at the CW

The CW Orders Batwoman Pilot

The CW has officially ordered a pilot for Batwoman weeks after the character was introduced in the network's annual Arrowverse crossover special, and legendary director David Nutter (Smallville, Supernatural) is directing.

The network has been keying in on known properties in recent years anyway (Dynasty, Legacies, Riverdale, Charmed) and Batwoman would allow them another comic show fronted by a woman and the first gay lead character of a live-action solo superhero series.

No timeframe for the pilot was reported.

The Gotham City-set series will follow Rose as Kate Kane, an highly street fighter and out lesbian who has donned the Batwoman persona and "primed to snuff out the failing city's criminal resurgence". All three will serve as executive producers along with Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns. As such, the official announcement doesn't exactly come as a shock, but the involvement of Nutter - whose mile-long list of TV credits also includes episodes of Game of Thrones, Shameless, and The Sopranos - bodes well for the show's chances of being ordered to series.

Dries wrote the Arrow Elseworlds crossover episode where Rose's Batwoman made her debut.

While Gotham is, 'desperate for a savior, ' 'Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope.

It was established in the crossover event in December that this universe's version of Gotham City fell to chaos after Kane's cousin, Bruce Wayne, left on a mysterious journey.

The pilot will certainly give us more insight into the character of Kane, and her alter-ego Batwoman, because we certainly didn't get much of a sense of her from "Elseworlds".

Rose's casting as Kate Kane was at first quite controversial, with the star even leaving Twitter back in August due to the backlash.
