In the comics, the now-defunct U.S. military's Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy played a pivotal role in Kate Kane's origin story. But since its repeal happened before the show's Kate was enrolled, the military school the character attends in the series still has that policy.
"Because that was such a milestone moment in her life we knew we had to hint at that in the pilot," said Dries. "Moving forward in the series, we will return to Point Rock Academy because that decision is such a big deal that she made."
They producers touched on a pivotal pilot twist, which received a passionate reaction in the room (as did the first reveal of Kate Kane in her Batsuit), and said they wanted to reveal it as early as possible because of the fact that its inspiration comes from the comics, which means many fans already know the connections.
"Really Kate's journey over the course of season one is trying to redeem the humanity that she knows is still inside this monster," Dries said.
The villain introduced in the pilot, Alice (Rachel Skarsten), will be the big bad of the first season, but there will be more from Batman's Rogue's Gallery that pop up throughout the season. Tommy Elliot, who ultimately becomes Hush, is one of them.
"Because you've seen so many different versions of [Batman's villains]," Dries said, "we're trying to find a different way in." That means seeing some of Hush's origin story.
Additionally, "We are not going to repeat villains from the Arrow-verse; we're using a whole new chapter of villains and heroes," Dries said.
The series only just began shooting its first season, so there will be more casting announcements to come, but Dries and Schechter revealed that Burt Ward, who played Robin in the 1960s Batman TV series, will make an appearance.
Said Dries, "We're doing a deep dive into the DC universe."
