Batwoman – and her different MASKS on the CW TV show

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.

The differences:

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?

Supergirl VS Red Daughter

No Batwoman for today…but a really good fight scene with Supergirl VS Red Daughter!

I thought about if this scene would qualify for this blog, and (obviously) decided that it does, even….well you will see that in the video 😉

Preview:

And here is the video:

If you wanna see the long(er) version with around 2 minutes more (wasn’t possible to upload it on Youtube), check this link:

Supergirl VS Red Daughter – long version

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:

Batwoman TRAILER, Sneak Peak and MUCH more!

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?

Season 1 of BATWOMAN is………..ORDERED!!!

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?

–  storyline?

…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. 😉

May 8th, 2019 ….. a day to remember.

(((or May 7th, if you take U.S. time)))

What do you think about this news?

To celebrate this very special news…. I will give away FREE months for the VIP club of Maskripper!

The task is very easy, you have to guess….how many DVDs and Blurays I do have in my movie/TV-series collection?

I little hint: More than 5 😉

…Contest closed!

XS’s secret identity is exposed to some villains! [The Flash]

Well, the last episode from the Flash had some interesting dialogues about secret identities and an unmasking as well.

Even if I hope, I don’t think it will be of impact for further episodes….but let’s see if that gets a real big problem.

Preview:

(cllick to enlarge)

And here is the video:

Well, what a clumsy/moronic Sherloque Wells! He does try to convince Nora/XS how much her parents care about her….but by saying that he actually exposes the fact that she is his daughter.

And the “weather witch” connects the dots and realises that Nora is XS, who gives up the masquerade and unmasks herself in front of a villainess!

XS is exposed!

Well, these three villains aren’t big villains like Cicada…but I wonder if they use that knowledge later on against her (and her family)?

This is the episode this clip was taken from:
