Even there is no actuall unmasking in the scene….a find it rather interesting. The mystery of her mask is very sexy. The music is brilliant in my opinion. First suspense/thrilling music and then some sort of kids-song as he gets murdered…interesting combination!
I included two scenes from later on in that same episode to show her unmasked face.
In case you wanna know the title of this episode and show:
+ My special “Black Scorpion” edits from episodes 17-19 …so incl. the best Black Scoprion Episode (19, with Flashpoint) with over 13 minutes of Black Scorpion (6 minutes are the normal screentime for her in one episode) (all scenes with Black Scorpion in it , +some extra sexy Darcy Walker scenes, -the recurring car chase scenes)
+ you will have FULL access to my 2 (self-written) Maskripper fetish stories (both over 15 pages)!
Well, as Batman, Batwoman is a creature of the night, so a rather dark tone fits very good and I really like a dark(er) tone in a movie or TV series. I mean Legends of Tomorrow is half a comedy, Flash has dark moments but the hero does see much more daylight than Batman/Batwoman and it has comedy elements as well (Ralph etc.). Arrow has some darkness and tragedy, but now less than at the beginning in my opinion. And the relationsship between Oliver and Felicity changed quite a lot in that matter…. so much relationsship drama, his son …etc.
The CW should have enough experience by now with all those superhero shows, that I’m confident that they know what to do with …this… caped crusader.
And if you “only” wanna watch all scenes with Batwoman and Kate Kane, check out this post:
I am sure many of you noticed that Batwoman (Ruby Rose) has worn two different masks so far. First, we saw her in the Crossover with her “regular” mask and wig. And now, in the trailer from last week, she wore a different mask without a wig (the pilot plays years BEFORE the Crossover).
Where are the differences? Well, as I have a Dr. in ….maskoligy…..I will try to show them to you 😉
For starters, let’s me present her “regular” mask that she will wear from the ending of episode 1 (most likely):
(cropped pictures to show the mask/cowl)
There are at least 3 differences from her regular mask (pictures 1-6) to the mask she wears for most parts of the trailer (pictures 7-12). I believe that it is just a size-modified Batman cowl that Luke Fox made to fit Batwoman’s head.
1) most obvious – Her regular mask includes a flashing red wig. Therefore I think her, the material on top of her head was removed, the cowl seems open, her wig is right on her real hair.
I don’t think her wig is “glued” to the top of her mask. Even it would make some things easier (for the actress).
2) The whole shape is different!
The modified Batman mask is much rounder as her regular one. It looks bigger to me (volume/capacity).
You can see the shape of her ear on the regular one (picture 2) and it fits better to her head in my opinion.
3) The eye section!
If you compare the mask around her eyes…you can see that the material of the modified Batman mask is flat. On her regular mask, it is shaped much different. It looks menacing (like it should be) and should provide much better protection for her if someone would score a hit in that area. With that shape, it should hurt to hit her there 😉
Things I would like to know about these masks:
1)From what material(s) are they made off?
I think that it is rather some “hardened kind of plastic” like Christian Bale’s Batman cowl. Personally I would love if it would be made out of thick rubber, that could be stretched a bit (for unmasking purposes of course 😉 )….but I don’t think it is.
2) Is the back section of her regular mask “closed” as well?
You can see that her Batman-mask is “closed” (pictures 7 and 11) at the back of her head.
Due to the wig, we couldn’t see the back of the cowl on her regular mask. Is it closed as well? In the comics she doesn’t wear a cowl, it “just” covers her face and some parts of the sides of her head. If it is not closed around her head…how it is fixed to stay on it?
3) Does she wear a “cowl of cloth” underneath her mask?
If you check picture 11, you can spot some cloth material that exits her mask on her cheek. And on pictures 2 and 7 you can see that this cloth material covers her neck from the top of her suit upwards. How far does that cloth material “goes” upwards?
……to be continued…..
What do you think about these masks?
Do you see other differences that aren’t on my list?

>>>>>>>>>>> Maskripper is now on ……Twitter!!! <<<<<<<<<<<
Well, yeah, this …full face helmet of Red Daughter does qualify as a mask to me, even that is not the real purpose of it. It is part of her battle costume and has some functions in a fight as it seems.
Anyway I like the struggle between them, especially in the daylight. Really looking forward on how this will develop in the last episode of the season.
In case you wanna know from which episode that was taken:
I guess that will be the longest post I ever made here on Maskripper, but…
…well, these are really exciting days….a lot of BIG news on the Batwoman TV show!
When will the show start?
1) It will run on Sundays at 8 PM on the CW, right before Supergirl (9 PM)
2) It will start sometime in Fall, the exact date will be announced in the future
The Trailer is here:
A “Sneak Peak” is there too:
And a general, short trailer for all the Arrowverse shows…with some seconds of Batwoman as well:
And now something to read as well…the Official Storyline:
BATWOMAN— 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. Based on the characters from DC, BATWOMAN is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”), Caroline Dries (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Smallville”), Geoff Johns (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Titans”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”). David Nutter (“Game of Thrones,” “The Flash,” “Arrow”) and Marcos Siega (“The Vampire Diaries,” “You”) executive produced the pilot.

My opinion on the trailer:
I was rather surprised we get a trailer that long at this time! 🙂
And that is “only” material from the pilot episode, which was the only one that was filmed so far.
I liked the rather dark tone of it, both in optics AND atmosphere. Very fitting, like Batman…Batwoman is a creature of the night with a rather troubled past.
We get introduced to the (so far) important characters, get a feeling for the story of the pilot and some good action scenes as well.
There is a lot of ….fuzz…over Kate’s two…well….”feminisitc(?)” lines, but I think they just wanna make a statement in the trailer. I don’t think she will drop such lines on a regular base in the Show later this year. I don’t have a problem with it, as long as it doesn’t get …too much.
And seeing this trailer…..it is something really….HUGE for me. As you may know by now, I really have a thing for masked women. 😉
She wears a great masks that really hides her identity, there are so MANY examples in other shows were the women have rather small masks that doesn’t hide enough to provide a good “secret identity cover” for the woman underneath the mask.
And to have a show with such a masked heroine in the LEAD role…..it is a dream coming true.
My biggest questions about the show so far:
1) When will the show start exactly? So that I can configure the timer on the right side 😉
2) Which characters will we get to see in that season? Villains/Villainesses? What other heroes/heroines? Gotham has A LOT to offer 🙂
3) Is Alice the main villainess?
4) Who will figure out who is under Batwoman’s mask? And When?
In the trailer…”only” Luke Fox seems to be “in the know”, as he is responsible for her suit and gadgets. In the comics her father knows it from the start (as he train her), but it’s not sure the TV show will do it like the comics.
5) How many unmaskings will be shown? And what types of unmaskings? (Self, forced, unconscious, bound, fight …-unmaskings?)
6) Her masks (in the trailer we saw 2 versions): From what material are they made of? What are the exact differences between the both types we saw so far?
7) What is the main storyline? (after the pilot)
8) How much screentime will Batwoman actually get in the episodes?
What do YOU think of all those videos and info?

As I woke up one hour ago, checking a certain site as every morning…my pulse was accelerated through the roof.
😀 Right now, I am so HAPPY, sooooo HAPPY. 😀
So far, it seemed most likely that they would order season 1 after the pilot was filmed in march…but hey, I’m very superstitious when it comes to possible great news.
But now, all doubts are gone, as it is official:
Batwoman – Season 1 …is officially ordered!
A short teaser surfaced to confirm it:
We will get a TV SERIES with a MASKED HEROINE in the MAIN role!!!
And easy to say after only 2 TV series so far (Queen of Swords and Black Scorpion) this is clearly the first one with a “real” budget so far.
And these series are both around 20 years old. It was about damn time!
(And hopefully it will be the first one(!) who will get …a second season)
And the chances for more masked women (villainesses and heroines) are ….very high/near certain!!!
Did some say Batgirl, Catwoman, Huntress? 😉
Some images, mostly from the Elseworlds crossover event from december:
More details like:
– how many episodes?
– when does the series start exactly?
…will be released next week (around May 16) as the CW presents their shows for the next tv season (fall)!
Later this day I will celebrate this news with expensive burgers and something special to drink. 😉
Ok, folks, back to the normal….”post on sunday” schedule!
In the last episode of Gotham (ever), we see a 10 years time jump in the future. And for that they choose a new actress as Catwoman/Selina Kyle. Since Camren Bicondova is still pretty young it would look weird if she would play a ten-year older self. So they choose Lili Simmons (you should know her from the TV series Banshee!) for playing the role.
For this video I included all the Catwoman scenes and 2 scenes with Selina Kyle.
(click to enlarge)
And here is the video:
As I just saw this last episode of the series two days ago. I am pretty sad that it is all over.
I had high hopes in that series. It delivered a lot. I hoped for a VERY long run to see Selina and Bruce grow into Catwoman and Batman.
And at the beginning of season 4 Selina put on a mask for two episodes. I hoped that would be the start of her transformation into Catwoman.
Well….yes and no. She nearly always had her black leather clothes and her claws on the gloves. But no more mask and no real Catwoman outfit.
On the good side this first real Catwoman appearance on the show did soften my pain of “parting” a little.
I’m a pretty uncritical guy…but…………….
This Catwoman outfit….well, it looks like they quickly put it together without much thinking or money.
This cowl/mask…. I guess it is no coincidence we don’t get to see it for a real close-up.
This visor on the cowl……MY GOD!!! That is not Catwoman!
No cat-ears??? WHY???? That is not Catwoman!
I guess they were so ashamed of that mask that they didn’t show it in a close up.
What is weird, she is never called Catwoman in the episode. Is that the reason her mask looks like that?
90% of the (at least solid) cosplayers can design a better Catwoman mask than this.
What is weird, she never is called Catwoman in the episode. Is that the reason her mask looks like that?
And she pulls off her mask in the middle of her heist……WELL, THAT is a great idea!!!
(seems to be some sort of ….disease under the masked women lately (in Arrow and now in Gotham), unmasking for no reason and risking exposure)
Gotham is over. Arrow is over next year.
DAMN I do need the confirmation that Batwoman will get the OK for season 1.
Ok, two things I do like regarding her mask. It does cover her face pretty well….and…with that 4 press buttons it is secured at least a little (unlike other masks that a child could just pull off with 2 fingers…).
*EDIT, April 30*
Thanks to a friendly user….here is a picture that provides a better look at the costume:
(click to enlarge to full size)
Well, it was good there was this last episode with the real Catwoman…but that outfit is pretty different from any Catwoman outfit from the movies and comics. And the only thing that says “Catwoman” are the claws on these gloves.
What do you think of her costume?
And of the decision to cast Lilli Simmons for that role?
There are several reasons I started to go on these Con’s.
– I wanna see some stars from the movies and TV.
– I like to see all the cosplayers, the artists and the merchandise stalls.
– And I wanna see some masked women like Batgirls, Catwomen, Batwomen, Spider-girls and so on.
….well….the first two worked very good. As I love the Gotham TV show it was a great joy to see so many of the cast in one place. And the other stars were interesting as well!
There were a lot of great cosplays and I found some good stuff at the merchandise stalls as well.
But masked women? Well, yes…but not ONE of real interest to me. There were some “masked” Star wars girls (well, only masked by a lot of face paint). There were a Catwoman, a Batgirl and a Huntress…but all with pretty cheap costumes. There was a Speedy (from Arrow, with an eye mask).
And quite some Spider-girls and Gwens…..but ALL without a mask! I guess they all thought….”they can’t see my pretty face when I’m wearing a mask”. Well, that’s true, but in my opinion running around with the mask would be the right thing to do as it is the “normal” costume (for Spider-Girl/Gwen). I never saw a Batman without a cowl on all these comic cons.
But I know this from Instagram, there a quite a lot of Spider-girl/gwen cosplayers who present most …or all pictures without the mask.
Sometimes I think that is an ego-think…
And somehow I didn’t want to ask them to put on their masks, so I could make a picture 😉
Ok, time for a video for you folks:
It wasn’t as crowded as on the last 2 cons in december.
Perhaps many folks are happy with one con a year (and only 4 months since the last one). But there will be 2 again next year.
Let’s see if enough folks will come to keep that up.
Some pictures I made:
All in all it was a fun day to remember, even I did not see really good cosplays with masked women. Perhaps next december.
Or I need to find a con were it is all about DC comics…and not to far away. One day I would like to attend the big comic con in San Diego.
Feel welcome to leave your comments below!
Did you ever visit such a con? Did you like it?
By the way:
It is still time to see the VIP-club videos from April!
Join now, support this blog and get some great extra videos (and 2 fetish stories)!
Well, with that headline you are thinking about the Batman TV show from the 60’s? Well, that’s wrong. This movie from the Philippines is some sort of much …..weirder, much …..insaner parody of the Adam West Batman TV show (which was a parody itself…more or less 😉 )
For today I wanna show you a short video which will…….surprise you with the strangest fight between Batman and Catwoman!
I never saw the whole movie, because it’s not available in any language I understand, but more important: It is batshit crazy! If you can watch the whole movie….well, then you are officially insane 😆
For you folks I edited the “best” part of it, in which the Joker, Pinguin and Catwoman try to escape after a heist, but Batman and Robin can’t let that happen!
(click to enlarge)
Sorry for the picture quality….but that is actually the best one available. Fits somehow to the movie…. 😉
And here is the video:
Well, that was rather…….ODD!
Catwoman throwing cats at him….both trying to strangle each other….and then the weirdest part!
Looks like Batman could easily unmask Catwoman from behind….or put handcuffs on her.
But what does he do instead? He bites her. He BITES her…and makes some animal noises. Hmhm…… WTF?!
By skipping through the movie I can (99%) assure you that he isn’t a vampire…I guess there is just no sane explanation for it 😉
Catwoman’s costume is kind of strange as well, doesn’t look like a cat, but not unsexy with these legs in pantyhose (even the picture quality is really bad).
And she has a much bigger mask than the original Catwoman from the US TV show.
