The character is greatly influenced by Lewis Carroll’s Alice in wonderland , alongside a mob boss esque skill set.

The synopsis, as released by the CW, goes as following –

“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.”

David Nutter will be directing the pilot, who is known for his work on the pilots of Arrow and The Flash as well as helming Game of Thrones. Caroline Dries will be the Showrunner/ writer, with Arrowverse creator Greg Berlanti producing.

This will be the ninth show produced by Berlanti, which bodes well for the future of this series success. While little information is currently available for the show, it’s most likely to air Fall/ winter of 2020
