The CW’s upcoming ‘Batwoman’ series is going to be set before last year’s “Elseworlds” event, at least to start. The timeline is still a bit fuzzy on how it will play out, but Ruby Rose had let fans know that at least part of it will take place before the crossover event where we had met an already established Batwoman.
In a recent interview, Rose shared that:
“It’s set way before [Elseworlds], I mean, not ‘way before,’ that makes me sound like I’m playing a 9-year-old. It’s set before that. You have to find out how she came to be before we find out about all of those things.”
So at the very least the first few episodes and likely most of the first season will be taking place before the Batwoman we’ve already seen as she learns the ropes of being a costumed vigilante. As to how the series starts, she also let on that:
“The pilot, we did an extraordinary thing. When it comes to shows like this, and you want something that could potentially be otherworldly or in the superhero land, you can risk not being particularly grounded. And I think when you have Gotham and when you have Kate Kane, she doesn’t have superpowers, it is a grounded show… For us, in the pilot, what I found extraordinary was how much we’re going into the relationships and the characters.”
As we know, another big crossover event is in the works and it is clear that there will be a time jump at some point, but when exactly that will occur is still a mystery.
Either way, this looks to be the most exciting of The CW’s DC shows to date!
Are you looking forward to ‘Batwoman’? Do you feel that an origin story for the character is necessary or was her introduction in “Elseworlds” enough for you? How long do you think it will be until we see a time jump for the character? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
