I already celebrated with a good whisky!
Kind of a surprise for me that ALL CW superhero shows got renewed. Even Legends of Tomorrow was renewed for season 6….before their season 5 even started!
You can like the CW or not, but it is really a good partner for these superhero shows, not ONE…not ONE of these superhero shows… got cancelled ….ever!!!!
(Arrow only ended because of Stephen Amell had enough after 8 seasons)
And this means…….Batwoman is actually the FIRST TV show with a masked female lead….that made it to a SECOND season!
The show suceeded where shows like Queen of Swords and Black Scorpion has failed.
By the way:
The last two episodes of the CRISIS Crossover are just one week away!
Time to present all the news of the last days on the biggest TV crossover event ever!
These are the dates and shows involved in the crossover:
Supergirl, Dec 8
Batwoman, Dec 9
The Flash, Dec 10
…..nail-biting, 5 weeks cliffhanger!…..
Arrow, Jan 14
Legends of Tomorrow, Jan 14
Here is the teaser:
Never have seen a title screen so often like in this one….. but I like all the teasing in these snippets!
Bring it on!
I’m looking forward in great anticipation to this one! Especially for Batwoman and all the big changes it brings to the Arrowverse.
There will be casualties, I am sure not “only” the one we all know of.
Here is the poster:

Seems like Batwoman got the best spot! 🙂
But weird that they used that old promo picture of her….she doesn’t even have that cowl anymore.
She has a new cowl since episode 3, the one from this poster was only seen in the last years crossover (and some promos).
And here is the synopsis for the first three episodes (with some spoilers):
A little late, but here is my roundup for the Batwoman related news from the San Diego Comic Con!
Some promo material and more have surfaced 😉
(click on the picture to enlarge them to full size!)
And there were some videos!
A trailer for all the Arrowverse shows:
Well, sadly, nothing much new from Batwoman…only some frames around this scene:
…where Batwoman uses her batgrapple to go after the bad guys (and girls).
Interviews from the unmasked Batwoman and other Arrowverse leads:
And some new info from the producers of the show (with small Spoilers):
– Alice will be the main villain for season 1 (no big surprise, as she is her arch enemy)- In episode 3 they will introduce an interesting villain that wasn’t on TV so far (besides animation), an enemy of Batman. It will be Thomas Elliot aka Hush!
– Burt Ward (Robin from the 60’s Batman TV show!) will have a part in the next crossover
– Supergirl and Batwoman will become close friends (like implied in the last crossover), and should have some episodes together in the future (starting in season 1 or later…)
– The atmosphere will be similar to Arrow Season 1, pretty dark….which fits to Gotham of course 😉
– And like in Arrow Season 1, they try to keep it as realistic as possible
None of the actors of the show were on the panel, since they were too busy shooting and couldn’t make it to the con (unlike the folks from Arrow, Flash, Supergirl etc.).
Other than that they didn’t revealed much interesting stuff.
As much as I like these facts… I did expect more Batwoman news from the ComicCon.
And especially some new video material from the show. And despite some frames in the video in my post above this one….there was nothing.
Many visitors at the Con had the chance the see the complete pilot. I am still jealous! 😉
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 😉
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….
It is no big surprise to most of you that I have a “thing” for masked women. 😉
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 😉 )
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. 🙂
Ok, enough from me for now.
What do you think about the Crossover and especially Batwoman in it?
Leave your comment below!
P.S.: You may have notice the change in the picture headline on top of the blog already… 😉
Ok, only 9 days left until the big crossover event “Elseworlds” starts with Batwoman aka Kate Kane (played by Ruby Rose).
There is still no real trailer out (nothing with more than 30 seconds) but, perhaps this weekend or early next week at the latest.
Until then….I still have something new to show you folks.
2 new pictures with Batwoman have surfaced yesterday:
(click to enlarge)
These pictures are a great addition!
Love the good look at her mask in the first one. And Stephen Amell (aka “Flash”) looks really….funny/disgusted (?) in this one. Yeah, he isn’t used to female vigilantes with a real mask 😉
Or Batwoman doesn’t want to play along with the other good guys.
On the second picture, someone is standing behind Batwoman, and pretty close. In my fantasy that person is reaching for her mask from behind before getting a massive kick from Batwoman ;-).
Who is that? We will see…..
But in any case, I’m still hyped like hell about Batwoman in this show. Finally a heroine with a perfect disguise on TV. Her secret identity is hidden very well, and no one could possible know who she is without unmasking her.
And that’s exactly like I love it.
Still it isn’t clear if the mask goes around the whole head (back?), but we will see that sooner or later too.
Here is a “extended” teaser/trailer, but that just means that it has 30 seconds instead of 20 😉
Still not a real trailer, but we do see Batwoman and a Batarang!
WOW, that’s so FUCKING GREAT! 😁
Short version: In the next crossover event of the CW shows (The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow) Batwoman AND Gotham City will be introduced!!!! That will be aired in december.
That will bring up great possibilities in the future.:
Perhaps characters like Catwoman and Batgirl as well? Perhaps an own Batwoman Show?
Oh man, this news makes me happy….very, very happy!
I hope they don’t screw up the costume. I want that Batwoman mask from the comics. A big mask that hides her little secret perfectly.
Well, since her mask wasn’t changed in the years in the comics, I hope they just took that version.
