New details about The CW’s Batwoman give fans a better sense of what to expect from the network’s portrayal of the iconic Batman Family member.
It was recently announced that not only would Kate Kane, a.k.a. Batwoman, be making an appearance in The CW’s Arrowverse, but she’ll be getting her very own show as well. TVLine claims that sources have told them that The CW is “seeking an out lesbian actress, open ethnicity, to play age 25 to 29.” Batwoman will make her debut during a crossover event with Supergirl, Arrow and The Flash.
That Hashtag Show also recently revealed some new details from a character breakdown for Kate Kane:
“Kate is fully aware of how bad-ass she is whenever she enters a room, even though she prefers to put a smile on your face. Young Ms. Kane is physically and intellectually confident while being a woman who is proud to be openly gay. However, Kate still deals with her inner demons that go back to her history with her dad. Their relationship is quite complicated as she struggles to get praise from him. She once aspired to have a successful military career, but those dreams sadly came to an end as she was kicked out of West Point once she came out of the closet.
But that didn’t stop her from becoming the crime-fighting vigilante known as Batwoman. Striking fear into the criminals she fights, Kate is someone who must also fight the complications of living a double life, both as a citizen and hero of Gotham. While she has her shield up when fighting criminals, she lets herself be vulnerable when dating women.”

The character has been featured in animated DC projects, but she has never appeared in live-action before.
A talented actress is needed to bring such a strong character to life. Batwoman is just as fierce a fighter as her cousin Batman and she has a unique view on the world. An ex-soldier who was raised by her obsessive father, Kate Kane picked up the Batwoman mantle separate from her cousin’s decision to fight crime in Gotham. She has no problem putting herself in harm’s way to protect others and she’s also an intelligent tactician who will challenge Oliver Queen for the top slot in Arrow’s Justice League.
