Batwoman Teaser Makes It Clear That People Are Not What They Seem

Batwoman will debut in a couple of months. While others were treated to the pilot episode at San Diego Comic Con, the rest of mere mortals have to wait for the debut.

The character (and actress Ruby Rose) was well-received during her debut in last year’s big Arrowverse crossover “Elseworlds”. Now she’s back and we get to the rise of Batwoman. Batwoman Begins?

Anyway, we get to see the rest of the cast as well: Meagan Tandy (Sophie Moore), Camrus Johnson (Luke Fox), Nicole Kang (Mary Hamilton), Elizabeth Anweis (Catherine Hamilton-Kane), Dougray Scott (Jacob Kane), and Rachel Skarsten (Alice).

A new teaser for the series, however, makes it clear that no one is what they seem. Not surprising, it’s Gotham. No one is what they seem there. It’s like a city ordinance or something.

Check out the teaser below.

The (very long) officially synopsis for the series is as follows:

“Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) never planned to be Gotham’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, Jacob’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 –– the daughter he still has –– at a distance. But Kate is a woman who’s done asking for permission. In order to help her family and her city, she’ll have to become the one thing her father loathes –– 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 Enterprises’ 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), who’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 don’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 Gotham’s symbol of hope.”

Batwoman will premiere on Sunday, October 6th at 8/7c on the CW.
