Today, it was reported that the CW was developing a Batwoman television series and fans have taken to social media to share their thoughts on the news.
In May, Arrow star Stephen Amell and CW President Mark Pedowitz announced that Batwoman would be joining the Arrowverse heroes in this year’s crossover event and now Greg Berlanti is teaming up with the network to develop a standalone series for the DC heroine. Fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the developing series and it appears that while many are excited to see a lesbian character lead her own television show, others are concerned that the CW may not do the beloved heroine justice.

Them looking for a lesbian actress to play batwoman is a step in the right direction I guess. I’m so conflicted

#Batwoman ugh why CW? All the shows feel the same. Flash was fresh for a bit, but even that's gone down the "CW-style" drain. Oh well, I'll still give it a shot. I've always been a fan of the Bats!

Does every DC Hero need a TV Show? It's getting to a point where it's feeling DC is making up what they lack at the box office on TV screens. Don't get me wrong ill still be watching #Batwoman

So #Batwoman is getting her own show on The CW. I think CW is rushing it. At least wait to see the audience reactions in the crossover to green light a show. With Flash, CW waited to see how the audience reacted to him on Arrow, to give him a show. Idk how i feel about this..lol

I’m excited that a #Batwoman tv series is in the works. Even more excited that it’s part of the Arrowverse. Oh, the possibilities! I’m actually excited for the crossover this year now.

Here’s the official logline for the Batwoman series:
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.
Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries) is writing the script and executive producing the series while Sarah Schechter of Berlanti Productions and Geoff Johns are also on board as executive producers.

10 Actresses Who Should Play Batwoman In The Arrowverse
It was just revealed that Batwoman herself will make an appearance in the next major Arrow crossover. After including characters like The Flash and Supergirl, Kate Kane herself is swinging into the Arrowverse. 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.
