Batwoman will be introduced in The CW’s Arrowverse crossover between The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl, which begins filming Tuesday, October 9 in Vancouver. The crossover will kick off with a special episode of The Flash on December 9, 8:00 pm ET. The CW has also announced that Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) will appear in all three episodes, alongside Lois Lane.
One of the most prominent LGBT characters in comics, the Kate Kane Batwoman character first appeared in the 21st century as part of DC Comics’ 52 series. The character then went on to acclaimed runs in Detective Comics and her own self-titled series which was published by DC. Comics.
A spinoff Batwoman series is also in development, which Rose will headline next year if it’s picked up.
