Gotham producers wouldn’t let The CW use a certain Batman item during the Elseworlds crossover event for Batwoman.
Gotham is about to enter its final season on FOX tonight and Syfy Wire released a feature on it that includes a reasonable request from The CW for their Elseworlds crossover. That request: to use Gotham’s Batman Bat-Signal for Batwoman in the crossover. The answer from the producers of Gotham was a resounding “no.”
Batwoman was received fairly well during Elseworlds as Ruby Rose totally crushed it as the character. The fact that Gotham producers said no to this request baffles me as it’s completely harmless and wouldn’t hurt the final season of the Batman origin series. In any case, things went well for the introduction of Batwoman, and it was announced earlier today that a solo series featuring the heroine received a pilot order.
What do you think about the Gotham producers saying no to giving The CW this Batman item? Do you think it hurt Batwoman at all? Sound-off in the comments section below.
Greg Berlanti is once again teaming up with The CW to create a new television project focusing on Batwoman. Game of Thrones helmer David Nutter is set to direct the pilot, with Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries) writing the script and executive producing the series. Sarah Schechter of Berlanti Productions and Geoff Johns are also on board as executive producers.
Batwoman was first introduced in Detective Comics back in 1956 as Kathy Kane. She was one of the first vigilantes to make up the “Batman Family.” The character was reimagined for DC’s New 52 as Kate Kane, a Jewish lesbian who protects Gotham City as Batwoman.
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.
