As much as we’re looking forward to seeing Ruby Rose as ‘Batwoman’ when the series debuts on The CW, we can’t help but want to see how the actress plays her civilian counterpart Kate Kane as well. The latest preview clip from the series does just that and shows that Kane is just as likely to do what she wants to help people in and out of the mask.
We’ve often seen the Gotham Police Department portrayed negatively in the world before Batman arrives and it almost seems as if they’re falling back on their old ways now that he’s gone. In this video, we see Kane trying to financially help a homeless young woman while an onlooking officer unemotionally states, “I wouldn’t do that if I were you. It only encourages them.”
This, of course, has Rose up the ante in how she helps the young woman.

This feels entirely true to character for Kate Kane, and Rose handles the interaction perfectly. With the Arrowverse about to lose ‘Arrow,’ it seems that it is being replaced with one that will be even more fun to watch. As the show is set before the “Elseworlds” crossover, I’m curious how long it will take for Kane to find her footing as the new Dark Knight.

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.
