Batman supervillain Hush will appear in the upcoming first season of The CW’s “Batwoman” series, marking the first time the famed mysterious bandaged baddie has made the leap to live-action.
In the first season of the show, Batman’s enemies will begin to target Kate Kane after she becomes Batwoman. The character of Tommy Elliot will also be introduced and get an origin story of sorts for his transformation across the season.
Executive producers Caroline Dries and Sarah Schechter, appearing at Comic Con, were asked if Batman himself might appear to which they said anything is possible but DC is very strict about sharing that character. She also tells EW a big part of the show’s focus is balancing work and personal life:
“One of the things she’s going to figure out pretty early on is, ‘Oh, I now see why there was no Mrs. Wayne.’ It’s because it was very hard to be the hero of Gotham and have a love life. So her personal life will have its due time on screen, and she’s trying to grapple with how do I be Kate and also be Batwoman”
“Batwoman” will premiere on Sunday, October 6th.
