When the CW announced a standalone Batwoman series fans were extremely excited to explore the Batman universe, unfortunately the first trailer has received over 320k dislikes on YouTube. The trailer itself wasn’t terrible, there were two lines in the first look that had fans outraged, when Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) discovered the Batcave she glanced at his suit and said “It will be, once it fits a woman” (she was describing the problems with the suit) another line that killed the show before it aired was “I’m not about to let a man take credit for a woman’s work” the line was “Cringy” a simple solution is to change these lines to “When it fits me” and “I’m not about to let Batman take credit for my work”
A new clip called “Times Are Changing” was released by the CW, although the clip currently has more dislikes then likes, it has a different meaning.
In the clip we see Kate give a homeless woman $5 a soldier/officer then says “I wouldn’t do that, it only encourages them” Kate then walked back and gave her a rather expensive watch. Now some may argue that she only helped her because she was a woman, but this 40 second clip had many meanings, the most obvious one is that Kate can save the city without a Bat costume, helping homeless people is just as important as taking down thugs, another meaning the clip had was not everyone in Gotham is bad, the soldier/officer encouraged Kate not too give the woman $5 thankfully she didn’t listen, a fun Easter egg is that the clip is called “Times Are Changing” while the clip focused on a watch.
Although the trailer has more dislikes then likes, Titans unfortunately faced the same thing, and thankfully people loved the show, who knows maybe Batwoman will be an epic surprise.
Who is Batwoman?
“Batwoman is a fictional superheroine appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Katherine “Kate” Kane is a wealthy heiress who becomes inspired by the superhero Batman and chooses, like him, to put her wealth and resources towards a campaign to fight crime as a masked vigilante in her home of Gotham City. Batwoman was introduced in 2006 in the seventh week of the publisher’s year-long 52 weekly comic book. Introduced as Kate Kane, the modern Batwoman began operating in Gotham City in Batman’s absence following the events of the company-wide crossover Infinite Crisis (2005). The modern Batwoman is written as being of Jewish descent and as a lesbian. Described as the highest-profile gay superhero to appear in stories published by DC, Batwoman’s sexual orientation drew wide media attention following her reintroduction, as well as both praise and criticism from the general public.
The modern character as depicted in comics works relatively independently of Batman, but has gained considerable profile in recent years, both within the DC Comics publishing schedule and the publisher’s fictional universe. She since had several runs in her own eponymous Batwoman monthly comic book and has had stints in the lead role in Detective Comics, the flagship Batman comic book for which DC Comics is named. The Kate Kane version of Batwoman was later adapted for the 2016 direct-to-video animated film Batman: Bad Blood. Ruby Rose portrays the character in her live-action debut during The CW’s 2018 Arrowverse crossover “Elseworlds”. Rose is set to star in her own television series set in the Arrowverse. She will also be part of the crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths.”
