The fate of Gotham City is in her hands! BATWOMAN is moving in and stepping into the spotlight in the very first Teaser Trailer for the upcoming premiere season of The CW’s newest primetime superhero!
The cape and cowl have been passed on and a new defender has emerged. Justice will reign in red. Beware the new bat in town!
After a stunning debut in this season’s “Elseworlds” CW crossover event, the ever expanding “Arrowverse” entered into new territory and visited Gotham City excitingly bringing Batwoman out of the shadows. While following a lead into the depths of Arkham Asylum, the Green Arrow, Flash and Supergirl found themselves in over their heads in inmates, until the Caped Crusader showed up — but with Batman gone missing for some time, the city has been under the watchful eye of another masked vigilante.
Now Kate Kane is going to have her hands full, and Batwoman will be suiting up to keep the denizens of Gotham City safe. Ruby Rose will be starring in the series, which has been confirmed will be premiering a full first season. The pilot had been green lit shortly after, the heroine’s startling appearance in “Elseworlds” and The CW has every faith that Batwoman will fill the void left when Arrow signs off next season after its 10-episode finale. Joining the cast are Dougray Scott as Kate Kane’s military father, Colonel Jacob Kane.
Additional casting notices have included Camrus Johnson (Marvel’s Luke Cage) who will play Luke Fox, the son of Wayne Industry’s leading technologies director Lucious Fox. In the comic books, Luke eventually assumes the role of the high-flying Batwing. Also on board is Nicole Kang who will be cast in the role of Mary Hamilton, Kate Kane’s step-sister, and is rumored may be joining Batwoman in action as a potential sidekick alter-ego. Batwoman marks the first appearance of an openly gay lead character played by an openly gay actor to headline a series in primetime.
Dedicated to inspiring diversity in contemporary narratives, Greg Berlanti the executive producer of The CW’s primetime “Arrowverse” line-up was recently recognized for his work by the International Emmys® with the prestigious Founders Award. Batwoman will be the fifth spin-off of the expanding primetime universe of DC Comics characters appearing on The CW.
