Here's the Scoop...

Move over, Batman! 'Batwoman' is coming to The CW.

The CW is developing a new DC Comics drama centered around Batwoman, a Gotham City crimefighter who was DC's first openly gay superhero.

The series is being written and executive produced by Caroline Dries (Smallville, The Vampire Diaries) along with executive producers Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and famed comic book writer Geoff Johns, Variety reported.

Berlanti also produces The CW's slate of DC programming which includes Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl, which all intersect with each other. Berlanti also handles Black Lightning which exists on its own.

Batwoman will be first introduced during The CW's annual DC crossover event which brings together Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl for a series of episodes. Casting will begin soon for an actress to step into the role. Deadline reported.

The series will follow Batwoman, real name Kate Kane, a highly-trained street fighter as she battles criminals and champions social justice while trying to overcome her own demons.

Batwoman was reintroduced to the DC Comics universe in 2006 where she was reinvented as a Jewish lesbian. The character has appeared in a number of animated films including Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman and Batman: Bad Blood.

I haven't seen any of the DC superhero show on The CW, but I do hear good things about them. Maybe I'll give 'Batwoman' a look when it comes to the airwaves.

Danica Patrick says Aaron Rodgers made her 'the biggest Packers fan'
Danica Patrick says she's become "the biggest Packers fan" since she started dating Aaron Rodgers.

The 36-year-old retired NASCAR driver discussed the 34-year-old Green Bay Packers quarterback and her newfound fandom on Monday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Patrick confirmed she and Rodgers have been dating since "the very beginning of the year." She grew up loving the Chicago Bears, but gave an emphatic "yes" when host Jimmy Kimmel asked if she's now a Packers fan.

"Yes! Like, the biggest Packers fan," the star said. "See, the hard thing is I grew up right on the state line of Wisconsin. I was actually born in Wisconsin, but we lived in Illinois."

Patrick, the only woman to win an IndyCar Series race, praised Rodgers after Kimmel asked who drives during their dates.

"Aaron is a really good driver, actually," the star answered. "He's probably had less tickets."

Patrick said on The Jenny McCarthy Show in May that she first met Rodgers at the 2012 ESPY Awards, where they exchanged e-mail addresses. The pair reconnected following Rodgers' split from actress Olivia Munn.

"We kept in touch a little bit, and there were some years we didn't talk to each other, and then some every now and again, but it wasn't until recently that we actually had phone numbers," the star said.

"We referred to each other as Chicago and Green Bay -- it was very cute," she gushed.

It's not overnight if it gets there in a week. you charging me damn near 50 dollars for. The last three orders were late. It wasn't like that before."
