The superheroine Batwoman (not to be confused with the more well-known Batgirl) is set to be the focus of the new live-action series, the Hollywood Reporter reveals, following her debut in a crossover event for the next seasons of Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl. Moreover, the project will lean heavily into one of the defining aspects of the character's modern incarnation: her sexuality.

"Armed with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind," Kate Kane "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," the show's summary reads. It will be executive produced by Greg Berlanti, the openly-gay overseer of the CW's current DC shows, and scripted by Caroline Dries of The Vampire Diaries fame.

ComicBook.com adds that the production is "seeking an openly gay, 25 to 29-year-old actress of any ethnicity to play the part," and reveals casting details indicating that heavy political and cultural messaging is planned.

"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," it reads. "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."

Ironically, Entertainment Weekly notes that Batwoman was originally created in 1956 as a potential love interest to "foil the accusations leveled by Seduction of the Innocent author Fredric Wertham that Batman and Robin were thinly-disguised gay propaganda"...
