The CW’s Batwoman is quickly taking flight, if you will, with the addition of The Woman in White’s Dougray Scott. According to Deadline, Scott is set to play Jacob Kane, a former military colonel who commands Gotham’s private security firm that’s also named after a dark-winged sky dweller: The Crows. Kane, like many authority figures before him, has it out for Batman. And he’s made it his mission to do an even better job protecting the city than the famed Dark Knight. But unfortunately, that’s a mission that will soon have him squaring off with the city’s other night-themed vigilante: Batwoman, who is also his own daughter (gasp!). The show also has a new director and executive producer in Marcos Siega, who was also an EP and director for several episodes of your favorite Netflix stalker rom-com You.
