And whoever ends up playing Batwoman will actually show up alongside the heroes of those shows, as she'll crop up in one of the DCTV's annual crossovers later this year.

According to THR, "Batwoman revolves around Kate Kane, who, armed with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind, 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".

In recent years, Batwoman (real name Katherine Kane) has become a big part of the extended Batman family.

Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries) is writing the script and executive producing the series while Sarah Schechter of Berlanti Productions and Geoff Johns are also on board as executive producers. Should the live-action series get picked up, it'll be Berlanti's 7th show on the network and his 15th on-air series, overall. Sara Lance, the "captain" of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, is bisexual; Black Lightning's Anissa Pierce is out and proud; Supergirl lead Alex Danvers had a very well done coming out story and a trans character is on the way for Supergirl; Arrow has Curtis Holt; and The Flash has the occasionally appearing Pied Piper, among others.

Usain Bolt looks to start pro soccer career in Australia
Bolt, who is widely considered to be the greatest sprinter of all time, has long had an ambition to play professional football. Mr Rallis said: "If he's competitive, he will lift our A-League profile".

Batwoman has a long comics history, first appearing in 1956, but the modern Batwoman era started in 2006. Though the character hasn't appeared in live action, she has been featured in Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman, The New Batman Adventures, Batman vs. Robin and Batman: New Blood.

Casting is about to begin for an actress to play Batwoman in the DC crossover event in December.

Kathy Kane was later dropped as a character by DC in 1964 when editor Julius Schwartz decided that he wanted to take the Batman books in a different direction. From there, I would move onto Batwoman: Hydrology from J. H. Williams and William Haden Blackman. If reading comics isn't your thing, you might want to check out several of the animated TV series and films featuring the Batwoman character. It's written by Marguerite Bennett, with pencils by Fernando Blanco, Steve Epting, and Stephanie Hans. We're looking forward to it!
