Hang onto your capes: The CW has released its first teaser for Ruby Rose’s Batwoman series.
Batwoman’s breezy, 20-second teaser follows the network’s announcement of a series order for the first superhero TV show to feature a gay lead character.
The DC superheroine was previously revealed during an Arrow crossover event titled “Elseworlds.”
The synopsis for the new series reads:
Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane (star 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.
