Batwoman Next Steps

So Batwoman has officially entered the Arrowverse. With Elseworlds coming and going, we are left with a Gotham that is in dire need of a "Bat" and a "Wayne" corporation to bring life back to the city. This would be a perfect job for Ruby Rose's Kate Kane aka Batwoman to take on, but the show needs the green light first. So what's next for Batwoman in the real world? The first step is the pilot. already reported that an order from The CW for a pilot of Batwoman has been made. Additionally, the show needs to be cast. That process is underway now with the likely supporting characters being:

  • Renee Montoya
  • Bette Kane
  • Caroline Kane (first name might change)
  • Alice
  • Luke Fox
  • Jacob Kane (Jake)

Once the cast is set, production will likely begin. Using what they can from the Elseworlds crossover, the sets will be added to and location scouting for more live action areas to film will be identified. Current rumors have dozens of sources saying that filming will begin in the Spring of 2019 with some even claiming it to be in April. This is likely the case as that would give the pilot enough time to be filmed and sent to the CW executive board for consideration of a series order. Additionally, it makes the pilot available for San Diego Comic Con where previews and or full viewings can take place. Should the series get a full order, we can then expect Batwoman to join the Arrowverse line-up in the 2019-2020 season, just in time for Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Indications of this entire process are already being seen. Today, has unearthed a revised synopsis for the series.

In a Gotham suffering in Batman’s absence, Batwoman is a dark DC Comics drama following the journey of Kate Kane as she dons a cape, cowl, and detective’s hat to save her city. But Kate’s personal life proves just as complicated as she grapples with a fractured family, a rookie team, and unattainable love.

This varies from the series synopsis we got back in July when the CW announced it was exploring the possibility of Batwoman. That synopsis said:

Batwoman revolves around Kate Kane, who, armed with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind, 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.

The addition of team and the absence of not calling her a hero yet, makes this sound like the show is really taking shape.
