The CW has released the trailer for Batwoman, a new series that’s making history with the first gay lead character — male or female — of a live-action superhero series.
Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope. Based on the DC Comics characters.
Cast includes Ruby Rose, Meagan Tandy, Camrus Johnson, Nicole Kang, Rachel Skarsten and Dougray Scott.
Series is produced by Berlanti Productions/Warner Bros Television. It hails from writer-executive producer Caroline Dries and executive producers Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns, David Nutter and director-executive producer Marcos Siega.
