The CW’s Batwoman trailer is here… and reactions are mixed


The CW introduced Ruby Rose as Batwoman during the 2018 crossover event “Elseworlds” with Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl. Soon she’ll have her own show this fall, and the network has released a new trailer, showing us the origin story for Kate Kane, Bruce Wayne’s cousin and Batwoman.

In the new trailer, it’s revealed that Batman has abandoned Gotham City. Kate Kane discovers the Batcave and decides to don the Batman suit herself… well, to her specifications. We also get a glimpse of her personal life including hints at the romance between her and Sophie Moore and her relationship with her father, Jacob Kane.

Check out the first look trailer below:

What are the reactions from fans? They have been all over the place, with some feeling very excited and others rolling their eyes at the dialogue.

This is where we get to the critics of the trailer.

This fan thinks the batsuit looks cheap.

This fan feels like the CW is trash and quotes a top comment from the trailer.

The comment reads:

“>Breaks into Wayne Tower
>Steals Suit
>Steals Technology
>Steals Persona
>Literally takes everything from Bruce Wayne who built up his own legacy from the ground up

“I’m not about to let a man take credit for a woman’s work”

GEEZ CW, do you not see how incredible hurtful and insane this is for young girls.

How much better would it be if she said: “They think I am Batman, I’m going to show them that Batman isn’t Gotham’s only Protector.”

One Twitter user is still not sold on Ruby’s acting.

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.

Batwoman is developed by Caroline Dries and Greg Berlanti. It stars Ruby Rose as Kate Kane / Batwoman, Meagan Tandy as Sophie Moore, Camrus Johnson as Luke Fox, Nicole Kang as Mary Hamilton, Rachel Skarsten as Alice, Dougray Scott as Jacob Kane, and Elizabeth Anweis as Catherine Hamilton-Kane.

Batwoman will air Sunday nights and will premiere Fall 2019 on The CW.
