Check Out The Crazy New ‘Batwoman’ Trailer

Article by Sam McTernan

The newest addition to The CW‘s Arrowverse is mere weeks away. Of course we have already seen Ruby Rose’s Batwoman in other TV shows but this will be the character’s first ongoing live-action TV series. We’ve already had teasers and trailers for the upcoming show, and now we have been treated to another. Check out the new Batwoman trailer below.

I’ll be honest, it gave me the chills. We see the titular character. AKA Kate Kane, having a terrifying confrontation with Alice. If the trailer is anything to go by, then we could be in for a real treat. I feel pretty confident that the two characters are going to make for some interesting viewing following this teaser.

The official synopsis gives you a better flavour of what to expect:

Kate Kane 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 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. Although remarried to wealthy socialite Catherine Hamilton-Kane, 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.

The show airs on 6 October 2019 and will give bat-fans the opportunity to see not only Batwoman but Gotham introduced properly in the Arrowverse. Other characters include the aforementioned Alice, Luke Fox and Colonel Jacob Kane, amongst a host of other familiar faces no doubt.

I’m certainly curious to see the live action version of Batwoman, what about you? Will you be tuning in? Let us know.
