It’s been a landmark day for fans of The CW. Earlier today, the network pulled back the curtain on its fall schedule, which includes brand new episodes of Supergirl, Black Lightning, The Flash, Arrow, and a handful of other non-superhero shows. Of course, fans have also been eagerly anticipating the arrival of Batwoman, the newest entry in the long-running Arrowverse, and not only did longtime followers get a glimpse at The CW’s take on the Batsuit, but they were also treated to a full-length trailer, which shows Kate Kane’s journey as she takes on the mantle of Batwoman.
No doubt, fans will recognize Ruby Rose’s role as Bruce Wayne’s cousin – the Orange is the New Black actress previously appeared in several episodes of The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl as part of last year’s Elseworlds crossover event. There seems to be a lot in store for Kate, too, who’ll face off with the Lewis Carroll-inspired Alice during the first season.
Aside from the aforementioned trailer, the CW also released a brand new clip, which we’ve embedded for your viewing pleasure above. In the video, Kate comes across the Batcave and discovers that her cousin was the man behind the mask. After she realizes exactly how Bruce was able to strike fear into the hearts of his enemies, she turns to Luke Fox, requesting that he fix and alter the suit so it fits a woman.
With the Caped Crusader having disappeared years ago, it looks like Kate’s going to be picking up where her cousin left off, and it seems fans won’t have to wait too long to see Ruby Rose take to the skies of Gotham. Batwoman is scheduled to premiere this fall and will air at 8 p.m. ET on Sundays, exclusively on The CW.
