Re: CW developing Batwoman series

This is getting shredded online. I have to agree the man hating stuff is getting a little old. I was excited for it when announced but due to Flash being garbage and Arrow falling off I don't care about the Arrowverse anymore. I'll watch Arrow season 8 and skip everything else.

Re: CW developing Batwoman series

The trailer lost me at "Batman abandoned Gotham City"

Bollocks. Fucking Bollocks!

I am sick and tired of this nonsense where we have to make the woman character look good by downgrading the male character. Can't they both be awesome? Can't they have Batman die in a blaze of glory and then she takes on the mantle?

I say it all the time, but DC didn't have to job Superman and Batman out to make Wonder Woman special. They're called the DC Trinity for a reason. All three of them are great and bring something different to the table. And fuck, I'll even credit Captain Marvel for at least not sacrificing the other Avengers to make her look even better. They messed up Nick Fury a smidge, but that was nothing compared to this.

The DC Universe shows are pretty good. You might want to go there if you can.

Damn man. I don’t mind her as a supporting character but definitely passing on this feminist bullshit.

Re: CW developing Batwoman series

This show's not targeted at me so I don't mind all the rubbish agenda. Though I don't think it is a good sign I like the supporting characters in the trailer in this universe than the main lead. Even token black guy assistant look more at home on the show that Ruby Rose. And I felt she did a decent enough job on the crossover too. :/

I liked Titans. Skipped Doom Patrol so I could binge it all at once. Might do that this weekend. Excited for Swamp Thing.

Re: CW developing Batwoman series

In the series, Kate Kane, armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, 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.
This sentence is a massive red flag to me

Re: Batwoman series on CW

Considering her appearance in the cross over was good, I can hold off judgement on being “too SJW”. But the fact it is the second new shoe in recent years and the other is still an actual hamfisted joke in Black Lightning.... I am a litttttle worried.

Ill give it an episode or two before judging, problem is, these Arrowverse shows usually start out strong and then start to peter out in their second season.

Unfortunately for me my start with these CW shows began with Supergirl. My interest ended quickly after. That Batwoman trailer is one of the worst trailers I’ve ever seen.

This is totally going to be way over the top preachy, I can already tell. That is what ruined the Supergirl show for me. Why can't a woman, or a lesbian for that matter, just be the main character in a show without having to go out of the way to draw attention to it? Instead of just doing the right thing, these writers or producers or directors always seem to want to openly pat themselves on the back so everyone can see how progressive they are. It's just annoying at this point.

I also don't love the casting. I wish she looked a little more intimidating. She is very scrawny, I was hoping she would look badass and look like she is a well trained fighting machine. Instead she looks like a model that cut her hair short and that somehow is supposed to make her look threatening.

I am going to approach this show like I do when I go surfing, shuffle to avoid the stingrays.

Well, at least Supergirl won't be the worst show in the Arrowverse now :lol

This trailer sucks so hard that I'm in stitches right now.

:kobelol



:kobelol

DC on TV is a complete disaster right now lol and they are not showing any signs of recovering.


I love her rants btw. She's my favorite reviewer these days :kobelol

Oh and I guess since she's so vehemently opposed to this show, I guess she's suffering from "internalized misogyny" :kobelol

The whole line of "I'm not about to let a man take credit for a woman's work". makes no sense, since a man is going to retrofit the suit and all the gear she's using was literally stolen from a man who started the caped justice in Gotham.

Also is the token black guy supposed to be Bat Wing? Guess now he's the token that will be used to make the white female lead look better and worship her awesomeness!

This show looks like a mess, I'm glad I gave up on CW shows. DC really needs to find a way to cancel the CW crap and just do their own stuff because CW has shown it cannot do heroes for the most part, justice.
