Rachel Maddow joins CW's Batwoman series 

Batwoman, which debuts this Sunday, marks the first superhero television series starring an openly gay character

Published: 05th October 2019

Television host Rachel Maddow has been roped in for The CW's Batwoman series in a recurring role. She will be seen playing the role of Vesper Fairchild, a TV and radio personality who once had a romantic relationship with Bruce Wayne. 

"We consider Vesper Fairchild to be the sardonic voice of Gotham. In addition to Rachel's interest in Batwoman, we thought she would be the perfect casting choice because her own hard-hitting journalism wildly contrasts with Vesper's penchant for snark, gossip, and criticism of female superheroes," showrunner Caroline Dries told The Hollywood Reporter. 

Batwoman, which debuts this Sunday, marks the first superhero television series starring an openly gay character.

Maddow also took to Twitter to share the news of her casting.


Interestingly, Maddow has previously written an introduction for a 2010 Batwoman graphic novel, Elegy.
