Batwoman in the Arrowverse – #1

Ok, folks, it’s time to start a new sort of series on this blog!

As most of you (hopefully) know already, Batwoman will make her first appearance on TV in the big Arrowverse Crossover event, featuring an episode each from the CW series Flash, Arrow and Supergirl.

And, with a thrill of anticipation I’m looking forward to that crossover from the day it was announced that Batwoman would make her debut in that.

I’m watching these series anyway, but this fuels my ….”delight level” to a whole new level! 🙂

Especially regarding that she will get her own TV-SERIES after that!! (most likely, if nothing insane happens)

Why I am so happy about it?

Well, how many …at least solid…..movies and TV-series did we have with a proper masked heroine over all the years?

Not many! Catwoman in Batman Returns, the Black Scorpion series, Batgirl in Birds of Prey (one episode), the Queen of swords series (even the mask isn’t really a proper mask)

and lately some masked women in Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl (and mostly only eye masks).

Check my Hall of Fame for more info on these!

And now, Batwoman!

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:

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:

What do you guys think of the costume?

Batwoman gets her own TV-series in the Arrowverse!

[Post 2 of 2 for today]

“Batwoman-day” continues with this post.

I guess many of you know already…but it is a MUST for me to post that here.

2 months ago we got the news that Batwoman would be included in the next Crossover event of the Arrowverse.

Back than I already hoped… that that COULD lead to her own TV-series…but I never believed that they would go on and decide to actually do that ….months before that crossover.

And now we are getting a complete TV-series with a MASKED heroine…that IS SO GREAT!

>>> My hopes for the Batwoman TV-series: <<<

—> Please stick to the tone of the comic series!

A little darker (and ….much darker than Supergirl for example) and a little grim.

 

—> Please stick to the costume and mask of the comic series!

I want the iconic Batwoman mask from the comics, that actually really hides her identity together with the wig. I want a sexy costume…perhaps with rubber or leather (or spandex).

I don’t want a damn eye mask for her! (producers: “let us show her face”)

 

—> Please choose a good and fitting actress!

Well, a VERY important point. I would like an actress that is good at her job. An actress that is tall enough and strong enough. An actress that can believable play such a well-trained heroine.

 

—> Please let her have a real secret identity!

Her identity must remain a good secret. I hope that only very few actually know who Batwoman is.

(unlike for example: Catwoman in “The Dark Knight rises”)

—-> And please….please let there be some villains that actually are interested in UNMASKING her

That is I guess the only point where they shouldn’t stick to the comics too much….

Of course she can’t be unmasked in every second episode. BUT wouldn’t it be “normal” that you would want to see the face behind that mask?

That they would TRY to unmask her?

OK, I know that can’t be happening to oft…but I know around 60 or more Batwoman comics. And nearly no one of her enemies seem to care who is under that mask…

I mean… you don’t need some unmasking fetish 😉 to be interested in that. Just a little curiosity.

Let’s say 2-3 unmasking attempts in one season with over 20 episodes. And 1-2 unmaskings.

Ok, but now a video that they released to the San Diego comic con last week:

The really important part is around 1:40…

Well, not much/nothing to see, but I like the dialogue. 🙂

I hope that there is more to see in video in the near future!

What do you think about the TV-series?

What are your hopes?

The next crossover of the Arrowverse will introduce….BATWOMAN (and Gotham)!!!!

[1st post for today]

For those who haven’t read my post on “Behind the mask!”…….

The news is so big it needs to be on the blog as well 😉

Just read this news:
http://ew.com/tv/2018/05/17/cw-superher … r-batwoman

 

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.
