CW Orders Arrowverse Pilot Of New Batwoman DC TV Series Starring Ruby Rose As Kate Kane.

THR reports:

      Ruby Rose-Led ‘Batwoman’ Pilot a Go at CW

      David Nutter, who helmed ‘Game of Thrones, ‘Arrow’ and ‘The Flash,’ is on board to direct.
      It’s official: The CW is moving forward with a Batwoman stand-alone series.

      The network on Thursday handed out a pilot order for the Ruby Rose-led drama from showrunner and writer Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries) and exec producer Greg Berlanti.

      David Nutter, the Emmy-winning Game of Thrones helmer who previously helmed pilots for The CW’s The Flash and Arrow, will serve in the same capacity on Batwoman…

      …The potential series breaks yet another barrier for Berlanti as Batwoman becomes the first-ever superhero series to be led by a lesbian character — and played by an openly gay actress in Rose.

      Here’s The CW’s official description: “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.”…

Cool.
