Anything You Can Do…
Not to be outdone by the casting excitement over The Batman, more details are emerging on CW’s Batwoman and a trailer has been released.
Too often the TV offerings from DC have collapsed in on themselves into some kind of gay man’s virtue-signaling submission fever dream, with twink castings and moral progressive lesson of the week thinly disguised in the plot. Will this be any different?
What’s The Story?
Here is the blurb:
Kate Kane 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 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. Although remarried to wealthy socialite Catherine Hamilton-Kane, who bankrolls the Crows, Jacob is still struggling with the family he lost, while keeping Kat e— 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.
Batwoman premieres on the CW this fall.
