Batwoman: First Look Trailer Released Online


The CW have released a first look trailer for the upcoming DC superhero drama series Batwoman, which marks the first gay lead character, male or female, of a live-action superhero series.

 

Batwoman first began appearing in DC Comics universe back in Detective Comics #233 in 1956, where she was originally introduced as a love interest for Batman. Since then, she’s appeared in various animated series and films, such as Batman: The Brave and the Bold back in 2008, Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman film in 2002 and Batman: Bad Blood in 2016. The modern version of the character is portrayed by Kate Kane, who was reintroduced to audiences in 2006 as a lesbian and of Jewish descent.

 

The premise for the series is as follows:

Batwoman revolves around Kate Kane, who, armed with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind, soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet…in a city desperate for a saviour, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.

 

It’ll be interesting to see how Batwoman will do with the Arrowverse audience going forward as we head into Crisis on Infinite Earths time as Arrow also comes to a close.
