New Batwoman 1×06 Photos Reveal Yet Another Batman Villain


Once again, I can’t stress enough how the Batwoman TV series couldn’t have debuted at a more opportune time. With Fox’s Gotham now a thing of the past, The CW are now free to use whatever Batman villains from the comic books they so choose. Well, I’m guessing a few are out of their reach, as Matt Reeves may want them saved for the silver screen, but that still leaves dozens of other evildoers at their fingertips.

For those keeping track, we’ve already met a pre-Hush Tommy Elliott and Magpie, with more familiars undoubtedly on the way. I’m just not counting Alice among their number, however, as she’s always been a contemporary for Kate Kane, and not the Dark Knight himself.

This time, it’s the Executioner who’s coming to the Arrowverse. Previously played by Michael Chiklis on Gotham, the torch will now be carried by Jim Pirri in “I’ll Be Judge, I’ll Be Jury.” If you’d like your first look at him, then be sure to browse the gallery below.

Considering how we’re this early into the game, who knows which other criminals will show up next. Killer Croc has already been name-dropped, and it’s not very often the Arrowverse doesn’t eventually make good on such teases. Bets are also being placed on the Court of Owls, although my gut says they’re being saved for a potential second season.
