The pilot for the upcoming Batwoman series is reportedly set to begin filming in March.
HollywoodNorth reports that the pilot for the series is scheduled to start principal filming in Vancouver, which will stand in for Gotham City. Director David Nutter -- a veteran of Game of Thrones, Arrow and Flash -- will helm the first episode of Batwoman. The script was written by Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries), who will also serve as an executive producer for the series alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns.
Introduced during the Arrowverse's "Elseworlds" crossover, Kate Kane/Batwoman left a strong impression as the current protector of Gotham City. CW issued a pilot order for the series following the positive reaction to the character, who was played by Ruby Rose.
In the comics, Batwoman was reintroduced in 2006 as an openly lesbian socialite who dons a cape and cowl to fight crime in Gotham City. Per the series' official logline, "Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane 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."
There is currently no announced release date for the Batwoman series.
