The CW has released a full-length trailer and poster for its Batwoman TV series.
The trailer reveals a lot about the mysterious Kate Kane. From her fraught history with the military to her discovery of the Bat Cave, it shows how she became the hero that Green Arrow and The Flash met in “Elseworlds,” last year’s three-show Arrowverse crossover. What’s more, it introduces Alice, Kate’s Alice in Wonderland-inspired nemesis.
Batwoman will star Ruby Rose (Orange is the New Black) as the titular crime-fighter. She goes by Kate Kane by day. Rose actually made her debut as the character in last year’s Arrowverse crossover event, Elseworlds. So viewers already have an idea of what she’ll be like in the role. As for her show: the series was developed by Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries) and will air back to back with Supergirl on Sunday nights, beginning this fall.
When the show picks up, Gotham City is in despair. In Batman’s absence, the city has become overrun by crime. Even as her father Jacob makes desperate attempts to keep her safe, Kate throws herself into danger. Her ex-girlfriend is kidnapped by the Alice in Wonderland gang. With a little help from Luke Fox, who readjusts Bruce Wayne’s Batman suit to fit her, Kate swings into action to save her ex-flame — and maybe Gotham in the process.
Batwoman premieres this fall on The CW.
