Ever since CW Arrowverse’s 2018 crossover called Elseworld, there has been one question on everybody’s mind- Will there be a Batwoman show? Fast forward to months later, her show has been ordered to series. At CW Upfronts, the network has unveiled Batwoman’s first poster in its presentation. You can check it out below.
Who is Batwoman?
Everyone knows Bruce Wayne but do people know his cousin? They will now. Batwoman will follow Kate Kane (Ruby Rose), an openly lesbian crime fighter who wants to keep Gotham safe while dealing with her own demons. The show’s lead and Batwoman herself, Ruby Rose said that:
“She is more fun because she’s a billionaire, She has ladies that love her. I think, for the most part, crossover-wise, she’s swaggy. She always knew who she was, but she’s really coming into knowing who she is in the crossover, and with Batwoman as well. It’s not the first time she’s put on the suit. The fact that she is am outwardly gay superhero, which is something growing up I would’ve loved to have seen on my TV, and was a big deciding factor as to why I was so passionate about the role.”

“This [role] just meant a lot more to me because I could relate in so many ways and, at the same time, felt like this was a job that would give me a purpose every day coming into work beyond just getting to live my dream, which is acting, and would be far more rewarding than anything I’ve done in the past. I felt like the reason I kept getting so emotional was because […] I never saw someone on TV that I could identify with, let alone a superhero. I’ve always had this saying, well not me, Oscar Wilde, which is ‘be yourself because everyone else is taken’ and so I always lived by that motto and that second when I came into the industry was ‘be the person that you needed when you were younger’ and I feel like one motto sort of led me to the other and I just kept crying about it.”
Batwoman is all set to debut on Sundays at 8/7c this fall on The CW
