The other day I wrote an article about Batwoman’s upcoming introduction into the Arrowverse. At the time, there wasn’t much in the way of casting news.
A couple days later here we are with some updates! It looks as if the showrunners would like to have a lesbian play the lead role of Kate Kane in order to provide a more accurate interpretation of the character. According to TVLine:
“Sources tell TVLine that the would-be Arrowverse addition is seeking an out lesbian actress, open ethnicity, to play age 25 to 29. (TVLine has reached out to The CW and Warner Bros. for comment.) Batwoman aka Kate Kane will first be introduced in this fall’s four-way crossover event between Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow, before potentially fronting her own series.”
This makes sense. The show more than likely wants to stay extremely close to the source material, and having a lesbian actress could help the individual empathize with the role.
