The trailer reveals a lot about the mysterious Kate Kane. From her fraught history with the military to her discovery of the Bat Cave, it shows how she became the hero that Green Arrow and The Flash met in "Elseworlds," last year's three-show Arrowverse crossover. What's more, it introduces Alice, Kate's Alice in Wonderland-inspired nemesis.
When the show picks up, Gotham City is in despair. In Batman's absence, the city has become overrun by crime. Even as her father Jacob makes desperate attempts to keep her safe, Kate throws herself into danger when her ex-girlfriend is kidnapped by the Alice in Wonderland gang. With a little help from Luke Fox, who readjusts Bruce Wayne's Batman suit to fit her, Kate swings into action to save her ex-flame -- and maybe Gotham in the process.
"They think I'm him," she realizes at the end of the trailer. "I'm not about to let a man take credit for a woman's work."
Written by Caroline Dries and developed by Bertlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, Batwoman stars Ruby Rose, Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Camrus Johnson, Dougray Scott, Elizabeth Anweis and Nicole Kang. The series will air Sundays at 8 pm ET/PT this fall, though no premiere date has been announced yet.
