Network President Confirms Batman Not Coming to The CW

Pedowitz confirmed the series' development to the Hollywood trade, saying Berlanti is in "early stages of development", though according to the executive "we'll do a pilot for mid-season, whether it goes to series, I can not tell you". And Oliver Queen may have dropped Bruce Wayne's name on Arrow. Casting began last month for an actress, likely a lesbian, to play the character in the DC crossover event.

That said - and even with the yet-to-be-cast Kate Kane aka Batwoman set to make her debut during this December's crossover event, and then possibly front her own series - the Dark Knight himself will be a no-show.

Deadline reported that Batwoman would be the first action superhero series to feature a gay lead character - male or female. "But there are no plans at all to have Batman appear".

Gates testifies he committed crimes while working with Manafort
Gates is also admitting to carrying out a vast scheme to hide millions of dollars in foreign bank accounts on Manafort's behalf. Gates also testified he and Manafort knew it was a crime because they had been notified by Manafort's accountants in emails.

The timing of Batwoman being a potential mid-season series is similar to how The Flash was originally developed with the character being introduced during the second season of Arrow and slated for a midseason pilot.

It's pretty hard to believe that a show about a Batman Family member that takes place in Gotham City will avoid referencing the big guy at all - and as Supergirl already proved, there are only so many times you can mention an iconic superhero before finally including him for an episode or two.

Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Batwoman spin-off as we learn it.
