We’re about a month away from the premiere of The CW’s newest DC Comics adaptation, ‘Batwoman’ starring Ruby Rose, as Kate Kane, Bruce Wayne’s cousin who steps in after his mysterious disappearance to become the new defender of Gotham City. The CW has released a new trailer, which shows that even though she is inheriting a lot of Bruce’s equipment, she will be “playing by” her “own rules.”
Check out the new clip below:
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.
In addition to Rose, ‘Batwoman’ stars Camrus Johnson as Luke Fox, Dougray Scott as Kate’s father Jacob, Nicole Kang as Kate’s half-sister Mary Hamilton, Rachel Skarsten as villain Alice, and Meagan Tandy as security agent Sophie Moore. It has also been revealed that Hush will be a villain in Season One.
‘Batwoman’ will make its series premiere on Sunday, October 6, at 8 pm EST, followed by the Season 5 premiere of ‘Supergirl’ at 9 pm.
