MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow joins the DC Comics universe
Cool. Now she can annoy us on two networks:
I know no one's going to believe this is true, but it's true.
I'm "Vesper Fairchild" in the new Batwoman TV show that starts this Sunday night on The CW.
(My character is soooo not me; turns out playing her is one of the most fun things I've ever done).https://t.co/LP8PauXvUL

From Hollywood Reporter:
Maddow takes on the role of Vesper Fairchild, a character from the Batman comics. Fairchild is a television and radio personality who had a romantic relationship with Bruce Wayne (Batman). The Batwoman catch is that Maddow’s Fairchild will never appear onscreen — at least there are no current plans for her to do so. Still, Maddow is expected to “appear” in multiple episodes.
LOL. We *hope* this is true:
I’m told the CW is allowing the first 22 minutes of each Batwoman episode to run ad free so Vesper can deliver ruminations on super heroes and society… https://t.co/qGnX44zgLe
