Batwoman pilot gets Game of Thrones director



The CW's annual superhero crossover upped the ante by setting up Crisis on Infinite Earths, based on the ambitious comic book series of the same name from 1985, in Elseworlds. Elseworlds is also notable for introducing Batwoman, played by Ruby Rose, to DCTV. Batwoman, AKA Kate Kane, is Bruce Wayne's cousin and fights crime in Gotham.

The CW has greenlit a Batwoman pilot directed by genre stalwart David Nutter, who has not only overseen episodes of Arrow and The Flash but also Dark Angel, Roswell and The X-Files. Nutter's most recent work includes Game of Thrones for HBO.

"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."
