Batwoman news, September 12th

The Batwoman news from the last 7 days!

There was a new teaser for the show:

I like this teaser too, really like this dark atmosphere. But it’s about time that they make a teaser with …BATWOMAN!
They made 7 or 8 of these promo teasers (with scenes that aren’t in the show)….and not one had Batwoman in it.

TigerStone FX has finished his work on a Ruby Rose Batwoman cowl.

It looks great and pretty close to the one she had in the Elseworlds Crossover.

And here you can see more details and actually buy it:

Tiger Stone FX – Batwoman Cowl

Quality has its price ๐Ÿ˜‰

Also, a new promo picture surfaced yesterday:

Ruby Rose as Kate Kane and Nicole Kang as Mary Hamilton

Interesting picture!

Mary Hamilton is Kate’s step-sister (in the TV show) and takes care of Kate in this picture.

The big question that pops up in my mind: Does she know about Batwoman? Does she know that Kate in under that mask?

Or does Kate come up with some weird excuses why she has these wounds/bruises?

I hope that Batwoman doesn’t share her secret with too many folks.

Luke Fox does know it for sure, her father knows it in the comics. Supergirl/Kara will find out in the Elseworlds Crossover (which takes place between episodes 3 and 4 of Season 1 of Batwoman).

Mary, Alice and Sophie are my next possible candidates ๐Ÿ˜‰

Feel welcome to leave a comment below!

 

*EDIT*

Only some hours ago I …”complained” here…that they weren’t showing any new Batwoman scenes in all those teasers….well, here you go:

(and that is actual footage from the TV show)

*EDIT2*:

New Batwoman footage from the trailer (in the temporary first costume):

Masked heroines unmasked! – Part 2 โ€“ [Fan art by MikePizzolato]

Time for some great unmasking art!

Last year I presented already some of his art:

Part 1

Lately Mike was on an unmasking spree in his latest artworks ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, I wanna present some selected pieces of his latest work here:

 

(*EDIT* September 11th: he finished some colored versions of his pictures, I updated the gallery)

(click on the image to enlarge it to full size)

Well, Batgirl is his favorite unmasking victim ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well, she is my favorite as well, since her mask offers…many options….and covers her face pretty well.

My favorite of the ones above is…. “Batgirl unmasked – 1”, because Batgirl fights back…struggles hard to prevent that the Joker unmasks her.

But, in the picture…it is already too late, the Joker has already stretched her elastic mask (Latex?) way too far, I guess he sees enough of her face by now, even with the closed eyes.

“Batgirl unmasked – 4” is also fantastic due to the mask damage! It seems the Cat has already played a while with that mask.

“Batgirl unmasked – 6” is a classic as well, since it is inspired by the best cover in comic history (for my taste).

“Batgirl unmasked – 7” is the nightmare of every masked heroine, not only getting unmasked but here in front of many many villains. Her career (and life?) is over now.

Would love to “Batwoman unmasked” in a future season of the upcoming Batwoman TV show. A fight with Batwoman and Catwoman….on TV…..that would be some sort of Holy Grail for me ๐Ÿ˜‰

Especially when they would try to unmask each other! Well, in the TV show Batwoman would be in a better position, as her cowl goes around her whole head. Not very easy to unmask her!

On his Deviant art site you can find even more:

Which one is your favorite and why?

Batwoman news, September 5th

Well, we are getting closer and closer to the pilot episode of Batwoman! And the closer we get, the faster the promo “machine” is running. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are the Batwoman news from the last 4 days!

We got more set pictures from episode 4, I will (of course) follow his rules and post “only” 4 of the set pictures.

You can find more if you follow the link below to his page!

First of all, here are the links to the guy who took the pictures and published them:

Canadagraphs (much more pictures here)

Canadagraphs on Twitter

Well, you can notice some costume changes (in comparison to the Elseworlds crossover)!

Especially her mask was changed a bit. I would say the eye holes are bigger. The bat-ears look a little different as well (bend to the sides?).

And the cowl looks a little “smaller”. You see a more of her nose, and the hairline is down a bit as well.

Of course, since these are non-official pictures without the proper lighting…. you can’t be 100% sure. We have to wait until episode 3 or 4 until we see the “normal” Batwoman costume and mask.

And about the picture with the kid, where she allows her to touch her cowl/face. Well, she should give such an opportunity to most of us folks here.

We might try to unmask her ๐Ÿ˜‰

And they released two new teasers!

The first one is basically just a compilation of teaser that were already released:

The second trailer has a unique style and makes us ready for the show:

I like the style of this teaser, pretty unique! Even he offers nothing much new, but it is different in style.

And I got another one for you!

Not much Batwoman in this one….but at the end …two or three seconds that weren’t shown so far: ๐Ÿ˜‰

Damn, I hope they will present some sort of season-trailer with scenes from the episodes they already have filmed before the pilot!

Would love to see some more new footage!

Feel welcome to leave a comment!

Have you noticed other costume changes?

31 days left!

Batwoman news, September 1st

[1st post for today]

Time for a little extra Batwoman post! Why today?

Well, it’s September 1st…which means…..as from today, you can say that….Batwoman will hit the screen NEXT month!

And that’s quite something for me, as I am waiting for this Show until last December …and then with even more anticipation from May as the Show was actually confirmed!

It has been a long waiting time. But luckily, it is coming to an end!

And I wouldn’t make a new post without new material ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, here is a new teaser:

A nice, short summary regarding the events before the pilot episode.

Nothing really new (except the lighthouse scene), but it is a good teaser!

And I wanna show a really interesting set picture with Batwoman in action!

As I read the first outdoor set (with public access) incl. Batwoman in Vancouver:

First of all, here are the links to the guy who took the picture and published it:

About the picture:

Well, it is clear to say that Batwoman (Ruby Rose) seems to protects a child, while she has a Batarang ready for the bad guy(s)!

She now is wearing to “normal/standard” Batwoman suit, and not the only slightly modified Batman suit from the pilot (and episodes 2 and 3(?)) anymore.

Batwoman starts NEXT month on October 6th on the CW!

35 days to go!

Batwoman news, August 28th

Time for an update on the Batwoman TV show! With some news and videos from the last 7 days.

A new teaser arrived:

Love the creepy Alice! I wonder how they will interact in the show!

And if (and how and when) Alice will find out that Batwoman and Kate Kane are the same person ๐Ÿ˜‰

A new interview with Caroline Dries (executive producer):

Interview

A new poster!

(click to enlarge)

An image on Twitter (BatwomanBrasil) told us that they started with episode 5:

https://twitter.com/i/status/1166484348692025346

(originally posted by BrendonZub on Instagram)

39 days ….and some hours remain (the countdown on the right always rounds up) until the first episode will be shown on the CW!

 

Batwoman news, August 21th

Time for a little update on the eagerly awaited Batwoman TV show! We are now “only” 46 days away from the airing of the first episode on the CW (October 6th).

46 days is still a lot, but as I first saw a countdown over at Batwoman.tv, it was at nearly 300 days, so…. the number from today sounds so much better. ๐Ÿ˜‰

What happened in the 10 days since my last Batwoman-news post? Well, not too much, but it is worth a new post for sure!

A new teaser trailer:

I love the dark vibes in this one. And Alice isn’t exactly happy about the news that ….a (new) Bat is watching over Gotham ๐Ÿ˜‰

Some pictures I picked up in the last days:

(click on the image to enlarge it to full size)

Chicago set pictures 1-6:

Well, it looks like a prisoner transport went…wrong and someone may have escaped! I guess Batwoman will need to catch that villain/villainess.

Pictures with the unmasked Batwoman:

Well, the guy with the blue shirt is really lucky to get pictures with her in costume! The other guy on the 2nd picture is actually Camrus Johnson (who plays Luke Fox) …who equips Batwoman with her gadgets.

Gotham Gazette/Batman pictures:

Also interesting! Someone seems to miss Batman (who is vanished in this TV show)! But who? And why? And why that puppet?

Questions over questions!

“Come out and play Batman!” sounds pretty playful. It seems that Alice thought in the trailer for the episode that Batman would be after her. But she surely have noticed quickly that it isn’t BatMAN anymore….who is afer her.

Guess we have to wait to get more info about the person who placed that puppet there.

Feel free to leave a comment!

Batwoman news from the San Diego Comic Con

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

(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):

    1. – 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!

 

    1. – Burt Ward (Robin from the 60’s Batman TV show!) will have a part in the next crossover

 

    1. – 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…)

 

    1. – The atmosphere will be similar to Arrow Season 1, pretty dark….which fits to Gotham of course ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

    – 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! ๐Ÿ˜‰

68 days to go!

Massive Batwoman promo in the days before the San Diego Comic Con (SDCC)

The San Diego Comic Con starts officially tomorrow and I wanted to present all the promo stuff to you, that I saw in the last days.

I already bought my issue of the Comic Con special from the TV guide, of course the one with the Batwoman cover ๐Ÿ˜‰ , it is on its way and should arrive next week.

Here is the promo stuff I found in the last days:

… and hey, there is more!

2 Batwoman posters!

As mentioned before the San Diego Comic Con starts tomorrow (goes until sunday)!

So I hope for a rather MASSIVE bunch of new pictures, videos and facts from the show in the next days.

The pilot episode is shown there on saturday…and we should read a lot about it on the weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

Damn, I envy all folks who have the chance to watch it on the weekend!

I am really thrilled about the next days….

81 days left!

Batwoman news – TV guide Comic Con special

88 Days left until the first episode of the BATWOMAN TV show on the CW!

The Comic Con in San Diego is just around the corner (July 18-21), and we should get more news, videos and pictures soon.

Yesterday it was announced that the TV guide magazine will bring out a Comic Con special with 4 different covers.

2 Covers are of special interest if you are interested in BATWOMAN (and the other superhero-shows on the CW):

all 4 covers – click to enlarge

 

Well, you may guess which cover version I must get ๐Ÿ˜‰

Very excited for this magazine!

It isn’t 100% clear when the magazine is for sale exactly…but I would say at the end of next week, when the Comic Con is running.

Unfortunately, since I’m not living in the US, I need to figure out how to get that magazine for a reasonable price.

Sadly, it is impossible to buy the really interesting foreign magazines here.

But one way or another…I have to get a copy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Batwoman news – The date of the first episode is out!

This new promo picture from the CW has the vital info we have been waiting for….

 

(click to enlarge to full size)

And as you can see on the right side, I adjusted the Batwoman countdown-clock to that date! 111 days to go!

The show starts just a little earlier than I expected, and I feel like it is an early birthday present when it will hit the screen. ๐Ÿ™‚

The filming of all episodes (besides 1, which is already completed) will start in early July.

The San Diego Comic con goes from July 18 to 21.

Keeping these two facts in mind, I am sure we will get new material and facts on the show next month. Promo pictures, pictures from the filming…perhaps some videos.

Damn, this guy is excited like hell for the next months…and especially for October ๐Ÿ˜‰

(click to enlarge to full size)

Starting dates of all shows of the Arrowverse:

Batwoman News [Crossover on Netflix, dark atmosphere]

2 small updates on Batwoman:

1) The Elseworlds Crossover (with Batwoman) is now on Netflix
If you have Netflix (I don’t) …and didn’t see the Elseworld Crossover so far (Of course I have!!!)….you can do it now.
You have to watch these episodes (in this order) to see the full Elseworlds Crossover:
The Flash, season 5, episode 9
Arrow, season 7, episode 9 – (90% of the Batwoman scenes are in this one)
Supergirl, season 4, episode 9
2) Batwoman will be the darkest show of the Arrowverse
The Production designer of Batwomen, Lisa Soper compares the show with the trailer of the new Joker movie.
She says that it will be darker than Gotham and the other shows of the Arrowverse.
Well, as Batman, Batwoman is a creature of the night, so a rather dark tone fits very good and I really like a dark(er) tone in a movie or TV series. I mean Legends of Tomorrow is half a comedy, Flash has dark moments but the hero does see much more daylight than Batman/Batwoman and it has comedy elements as well (Ralph etc.). Arrow has some darkness and tragedy, but now less than at the beginning in my opinion. And the relationsship between Oliver and Felicity changed quite a lot in that matter…. so much relationsship drama, his son …etc.
The CW should have enough experience by now with all those superhero shows, that I’m confident that they know what to do with …this… caped crusader.
And if you “only” wanna watch all scenes with Batwoman and Kate Kane, check out this post:

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ )….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?

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 โ€” Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) never planned to be Gothamโ€™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, Jacobโ€™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 โ€“โ€“ the daughter he still has โ€“โ€“ at a distance. But Kate is a woman whoโ€™s done asking for permission. In order to help her family and her city, sheโ€™ll have to become the one thing her father loathes โ€“โ€“ 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 Enterprisesโ€™ 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), whoโ€™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 donโ€™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 Gothamโ€™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 (โ€œArrow,โ€ โ€œThe Flash,โ€ โ€œSupergirlโ€), Caroline Dries (โ€œThe Vampire Diaries,โ€ โ€œSmallvilleโ€), Geoff Johns (โ€œArrow,โ€ โ€œThe Flash,โ€ โ€œTitansโ€) and Sarah Schechter (โ€œArrow,โ€ โ€œThe Flash,โ€ โ€œSupergirlโ€). David Nutter (โ€œGame of Thrones,โ€ โ€œThe Flash,โ€ โ€œArrowโ€) and Marcos Siega (โ€œThe Vampire Diaries,โ€ โ€œYouโ€) executive produced the pilot.

My opinion on the trailer:

I was rather surprised we get a trailer that long at this time! ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

2) Which characters will we get to see in that season? Villains/Villainesses? What other heroes/heroines? Gotham has A LOT to offer ๐Ÿ™‚

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?

 

What do YOU think of all those videos and info?
