Ok, I didn’t post anything about the (possible) Batwoman TV-show for the last 2 months…time to change that!
The filming of the pilot episode has begun yesterday (March 4th) and that means that some casting decisions were made in the last weeks as well.
Here are the new members of the Batwoman pilot:

As the first three are mostly enemies of Batwoman….this will be a lot of fun! All 3 of them are not happy with Batwoman showing up in Gotham, so I am looking forward how they will “deal” with her. Hopefully there will be some interest in UNMASKING the new vigilante in town. And for all three of them…it would be a BIG surprise to see who is under that mask 😉
The last 3 in the gallery above are more are less either friends (or will become I guess) of Kate or Batwoman (or both). Looking forward how they will fit into the story!
I hope we will get some pictures from the production of the pilot soon!
And of course more news on what will happen to the possible first season afterwards…
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!
And I really like her from the comics and the animated movie (“Bad Blood”). Her wig and mask makes a really good disguise! Not like most other masked heroine, who wear tiny eye mask that cover nearly nothing. And I really hope that Ruby Rose makes a great debut as Batwoman!
And yesterday we got the first official picture with Ruby Rose as Batwoman:
(click to enlarge)
And DAMN, I’m really happy with it!
A really great mask/cowl! The moment she hits the screen….I will be very…..excited! 😉
The costume is ok, more practical than sexy. Had hoped for some leather or even rubber…but well, that wasn’t very likely if you know the costumes of these 3 shows.
Of course it is not guaranteed that there will be a good unmasking. Perhaps Supergirl or Flash use their speed to unmask her to find out who she is. Or most likely Batwoman will trust them and unmask herself.
But whatever happens, every second with her on-screen will be really great (for me)!
And now some pictures of Ruby Rose without the costume:
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.
I saw this trailer and there is much promising stuff in it!
Some guys make XXX parody movies for many comic movies. In this new one, that will come out on September 30th, you will have a Batwoman! And a female Green Lantern? And some other chick in…well some sort of mask.

And here is the trailer (even safe for work):
That looks veeeeery promising…. even without the XXX 🙂
Another good comic scene was released in the last weeks. In this one Batgirl and Batwoman fight VS Azrael. And he is a great opponent!
But check it out!
(click to enlarge – 6 pages)
Well, that’s a fight!
Unfortunately there are no pages left out here. First I thought I skipped a page where Batgirl’s mask is ripped….but they just skipped that 🙁 . DAMN!!!!!!
But with a little imagination…. Batgirl’s full face mask leave so much oppotunities for a great unmaskings/mask damege/mask ripping. And it is a really well made fight sequence with two masked women. So, I shouldn’t complain. My two favorite masked heroines 🙂
