It’s going to be exciting for all CW’s Arrowverse fans. Arrow is not just coming to an end with its eighth season with “Crisis on Infinite Earths” finally happening after it was teased years ago on The Flash. It was officially announced recently that Batwoman has also been ordered for a solo series. Now fans have their best look at the latest addition to the Arrowverse, thanks to the Batwoman trailer.
CW Releases First Trailer Of Batwoman
CW released a trailer for Batwoman during the annual TV upfronts presentation, which gave fans their best look at the beloved Batwoman. It also gave fans their first look at Ruby Rose playing the iconic role.
Here’s the official synopsis:
“Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) never planned to be Gotham’s new vigilante. Three years after Batman mysteriously disappeared, Gotham is a city in despair. Without the Caped Crusader, the Gotham City Police Department was overrun and outgunned by criminal gangs. Enter Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and his military-grade Crows Private Security, which now protects the city with omnipresent firepower and militia. Years before, Jacob’s first wife and daughter were killed in the crossfire of Gotham crime. He sent his only surviving daughter, Kate Kane, away from Gotham for her safety. After a dishonorable discharge from military school and years of brutal survival training, Kate returns home when the Alice in Wonderland gang targets her father and his security firm, by kidnapping his best Crow officer Sophie Moore (Meagan Tandy). Although remarried to wealthy socialite Catherine Hamilton-Kane (Elizabeth Anweis), who bankrolls the Crows, Jacob is still struggling with the family he lost, while keeping Kate –– the daughter he still has –– at a distance. But Kate is a woman who’s done asking for permission. In order to help her family and her city, she’ll have to become the one thing her father loathes –– a dark knight vigilante. With the help of her compassionate stepsister, Mary (Nicole Kang), and the crafty Luke Fox (Camrus Johnson), the son of Wayne Enterprises’ tech guru Lucius Fox, Kate Kane continues the legacy of her missing cousin, Bruce Wayne, as Batwoman. Still holding a flame for her ex-girlfriend, Sophie, Kate uses everything in her power to combat the dark machinations of the psychotic Alice (Rachel Skarsten), who’s always somewhere slipping between sane and insane. Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate soars through the shadowed streets of Gotham as Batwoman. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, she must first overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.” the series’ official synopsis reads.
Ruby Rose Stars as Batwoman
Ruby Rose is the primary female superhero to land with her solo series as she got introduced during the “Elseworlds” series. The Batwoman series was long awaited, after the positive response received on the take by Ruby Rose.
“She is more fun because she’s a billionaire, she has ladies that love her,” Rose said before the Arrowverse crossover went live. “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.”
Batwoman will premiere on CW this coming fall. Batwoman will air at 8 PM on Sundays.
