Joining the bevy of DC Comics superhero television shows that are currently airing on The CW Network comes “Batwoman”. A character that we all first “met” during the “Elseworlds” crossover that aired last season on “Arrow”, “The Flash” and “Supergirl”. Her appearance was a brief but impacting one and I am glad that she will join the other shows as they continue to build a connected universe. The first look trailer is below and also some premise and casting. Let’s look shall we.
The Premise: Set in a timeline where Batman has abandoned Gotham City, Kate Kane, Bruce Wayne’s cousin, must overcome her demons in order to protect the streets as Batwoman and become a symbol of hope.
The Cast and Characters:
Ruby Rose as Kate Kane/Batwoman
Meagan Tandy as Sophie Moore
Camrus Johnson as Luke Fox
Nicole Kang as Mary Hamilton
Rachel Skarsten as Alice
Dougray Scott as Jacob Kane
Elizabeth Anweis as Catherine Hamilton-Kane
PiercingMetal Thoughts: This looked pretty solid to me as a casual fan of the character and while I cannot ever envision Batman abandoning his beloved Gotham City, in this reality he did and now its time for Batwoman to take over. I’ll be programming it since I do follow all of the other DC Comics shows that are currently airing. At this rate I sense my DVR filling up since that means “Arrow”, “The Flash”, “Supergirl”, “Legends Of Tomorrow” and “Black Lightning” are recorded on a regular basis. I also record “IZombie” but that is on its final season and will be cleared off soon enough. What did you readers think about this trailer/first look? Are you watching any of these shows and does this new one interest you at all? Chime in down below in the comments section.
