The CW’s Batwoman gets a pilot order!

January 3rd, 2019 by Marc Comments

Much to the shock of no-one, it seems The CW has given the Batwoman series, which will be part of The Arrowverse, a pilot episode order.

After her fun and delightfully dark appearance in the Arrowverse crossover in December we had no doubt she’d be back because, well, she was great and Ruby Rose nailed the character of Kate Kane and Batwoman, with Gotham being a well-realised place and they had us once they went to Arkham.

Plus, we NEED to know what happened Batman… and if it had anything to do with Bane’s mask being in Arkham. We digress…

But it seems David Nutter, who has helmed Game of Thrones, Arrow and The Flash will direct the first episode.


The show will be be the first lesbian-led superhero TV series. In a poll by The Hollywood Reporter after the crossover event 85% of viewers said they wanted to see Batwoman in her own show.

And we totally agree.

Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane [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.


No word when it will air, but we wouldn’t rule out it appearing among Arrow, Flash, Black Lightning, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow when they all return for their new seasons towards the end of 2019.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
