The CW’s Batwoman TV show slots into the same multiverse as Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Legends Of Tomorrow.
E4 has announced that they have secured the rights to The CW’s Batwoman show, which is part of the larger Arrowverse. The majority of the Arrowverse series currently premiere on Sky One, with Black Lightning making its home at Netflix. E4 has set no release date for Batwoman yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
E4 has also revealed that Batwoman is not the only DC acquisition they’ve made this month – the animated Harley Quinn TV series will be part of the E4 lineup this year.
“Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) never planned to be Gotham’s new vigilante. Three years after Batman mysteriously disappeared, Gotham is a city in despair. Without the Caped Crusader, the Gotham City Police Department was overrun and outgunned by criminal gangs. Enter Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and his military-grade Crows Private Security, which now protects the city with omnipresent firepower and militia. Years before, Jacob’s first wife and daughter were killed in the crossfire of Gotham crime. He sent his only surviving daughter, Kate Kane, away from Gotham for her safety. After a dishonorable discharge from military school and years of brutal survival training, Kate returns home when the Alice in Wonderland gang targets her father and his security firm, by kidnapping his best Crow officer Sophie Moore (Meagan Tandy). Although remarried to wealthy socialite Catherine Hamilton-Kane (Elizabeth Anweis), who bankrolls the Crows, Jacob is still struggling with the family he lost, while keeping Kate –– the daughter he still has –– at a distance. But Kate is a woman who’s done asking for permission. In order to help her family and her city, she’ll have to become the one thing her father loathes –– a dark knight vigilante.”
