Batwoman (and Kate Kane) in the Elseworlds Crossover

Ok folks, now that all episodes of the Elseworlds Crossover event were shown, this weeks post will be done today instead of posting it on the usual sunday.

Because nobody should be kept waiting to see this material πŸ˜‰

I do have two videos and one big picture gallery for you. For the first video I combined all Batwoman scenes in one video and I did the same with the Kate Kane scenes in the second video.

My opinions on all of this can be found on the last part of the post.

I recommend that you watch the video with Kate Kane first, for a better understanding…

My opinion on the Crossover:

—> In general:

It was a lot of FUN! Many funny scenes, sooo many Easter Eggs (Batman villains, Smallville, Legends of Tomorrow and more) and a pretty good story with some really good action scenes as well. I think it was a good idea to make this years Crossover a little “smaller” with just 3 episodes from 3 shows. I like it when you don’t have too many characters in it. With the Legends of Tomorrow it was a little too much for my taste.

The idea with the alternative realities is pretty cool. It was very interesting to see some of the cast in other roles. The scene with Kate and Kara was very important to introduce Kate to the Arrowverse and give her some depths before presenting Batwoman. And that brings me to my biggest interest in this years crossover….

—> Batwoman:

It is no big surprise to most of you that I have a “thing” for masked women. πŸ˜‰

So, the idea of bringing Batwoman into the Crossover this year, fueled my anticipation BIG time. Since months I really was looking forward to see her on the screen. Instead of most heroines and villainesses I saw in the past on TV, comics and the internet, Batwoman has a “real” mask. A mask that actually really covers her secret identity (and a wig for even more cover). She is one of my favorites among Batgirl, Catwoman and Black Scorpion. And the idea to introduce Batwoman in the Crossover and (and hopefully!!!) giving her her own TV show next year…..seems fucking fantastic to me!

As I heard that Ruby Rose would play her, I didn’t really know what to think of it. I had seen only very little of her and decided to watch/re-watch more of her the last months (Triple X 3, Wick 2, Resident Evil: Final Chapter, Meg). And now I am very happy about the fact that she got the role. Of course her part wasn’t very big (around 8 Minutes as Batwoman AND Kate Kane), BUT I really think she will/would do a great job in her own TV-series.

The mask/cowl looks fantastic and her costume is pretty good. The Batwoman symbol looks really good on her. Ok, I would tried something with leather and rubber on the suit (like the Batgirl suit from Batman and Robin or Birds of Prey…but perhaps that would have been too much for some folks πŸ˜‰ )
And that possible TV-series….would be a DREAM coming true for me. Always wanted a big TV show with a masked heroine in the main role. The only other two I know are “Queen of Swords” and “Black Scorpion” and both had only one season each, which lay back quite some time now.

—> Unmasking action:

Well, for less than 4 minutes of Batwoman, I think we got quite a lot!

Kate walks over to her costume and cowl. Really cool to see her standing before it.

And actually Batwoman got UNMASKED by Supergirl. Ok, the mask didn’t come off physically, BUT the very curious Supergirl uses the X-ray vision to see behind the cowl of Batwoman, finding Kate Kane under it.

But nice as Supergirl is, she easily gives up her own secret identity to Batwoman as well. And both already have a strong bond to each other, so they both know they can trust each other with their secrets.

And the possibilities for more unmasking action with Batwoman in that possible TV-show are…..ENDLESS. πŸ™‚

Ok, enough from me for now.

What do you think about the Crossover and especially Batwoman in it?

Batwoman got her well deserved spot!

    • Yeah, that’s what I think during an Avengers movie. Black widow and Thor…. for example πŸ˜‰
      I prefer the one without superpowers. Then you don’t need a god-like villain.

  1. Great editing, I gotta say Ruby Rose was a daring and inspired choice for Batwoman, but I think she nailed it. I really hope if there is a movie they let her keep the part.

    • No movie, but a pilot for a TV series is ordered πŸ˜‰
      Hope the important folks at CW like the pilot and decide to go for the series.
      That would be fucking FANTASTIC!

  2. I would love to have seen the look on Ruby’s face the first time she actually saw the costume she was going to have to wear for the show.

    • Oh yeah, that would be very interesting to see.
      In a interview she mentioned how excited she was as she had it on for the first time (and actually every time she put it on).
