DC loves their Multiverse and the CW has fully embraced it.
While the DCEU and Warner Bros Pictures has yet to embrace the DC Multiverse, the CW and DC Television have embraced it in order to advance their TV storylines and unite their TV Universe, well…multiverse. It has always been known that Arrow, Flash and Legends of Tomorrow share a universe it was announced that Supergirl and Black Lightning are not in the same universe as the other three DCTV shows. The fall CW crossover event, Elseworlds, just furthered this to great reviews from fans. Inside the Elseworlds crossover we encountered a Gotham City that does not have a Batman but instead a Batwoman.
Kate Kane exploded into the CW Multiverse with a big splash as she attempted to save Gotham with her wealth and awesome gadgets. Batwoman’s arrival was so well received by viewers that the cW has ordered the pilot for Batwoman’s series that will begin filming in March in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Caroline Dries (Smallville) wil be the show runner as Ruby Rose will star as Kate Kane as she battles injustice and villainy in Gotham as the vigilante known as Batwoman. The pilot will be directed by David Nutter, who directed the pilots for Arrow and Flash and even won an Emmy Award fro his work on an episode of Game of Thrones.
Below is the official synopsis for Batwoman form The CW:
Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane (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 the Gotham’s symbol of hope.
According to the synopsis it sounds as if Kate Kane is just a beginner in the world of crime fighting which is going to give the show more room to grow her as a character instead of having her already being an established vigilante. Batwoman will be a one of a kind series in the world of superheroes and will no doubt bring a new attitude to the CW’s DCTV lineup.
