Ruby Rose’s ‘Batwoman’ Trailer Comment Bombed By YouTube Trolls

Ruby Rose Batwoman Batman The CWThe Batwoman trailer debuted earlier this week with the first look at Ruby Rose’s Batwoman in her own series, but it’s being massively comment bombed on YouTube.

The comments are reminiscent of those from Captain Marvel and Star Wars: The Last Jedi which seems to imply the pushing of  a “feminist agenda.” At the time of this writing, the video has over 3 million views but over 200k dislikes. The comments are flooding in and the trailer is still trending on YouTube. Here are some of the comments:

Batwoman Katharine Cane made her debut in the maxi-series 52 in issue 7 and later went on to have her own series in 2011 as Batwoman in Batwoman #1. She was a lesbian expelled from West Point due to the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell US Military policy that banned LGBTQ people from service. It was officially repealed later in 2011.

Do you think Ruby Rose’s Batwoman will continue to face backlash after the series debuts? What are your thoughts on the first trailer for the series? Let us know down in the comments!

Ruby Rose will be the first openly gay superhero to lead a live-action series. Ruby Rose made her debut in the Arrowverse last year in during the Elseworlds crossover event last year which featured Green Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl visiting Gotham City after learning about the machinations of an Arkham Asylum doctor.

Here is the official synopsis for Batwoman:

 Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) 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 (Dougray Scott) 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 (Meagan Tandy). Although remarried to wealthy socialite Catherine Hamilton-Kane (Elizabeth Anweis), who bankrolls the Crows, Jacob is still struggling with the family he lost, while keeping Kate –– 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.

With the help of her compassionate stepsister, Mary (Nicole Kang), and the crafty Luke Fox (Camrus Johnson), the son of Wayne Enterprises’ tech guru Lucius Fox, Kate Kane continues the legacy of her missing cousin, Bruce Wayne, as Batwoman. Still holding a flame for her ex-girlfriend, Sophie, Kate uses everything in her power to combat the dark machinations of the psychotic Alice (Rachel Skarsten), who’s always somewhere slipping between sane and insane. Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate soars through the shadowed streets of Gotham as Batwoman. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, she must first overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.

Batwoman stars Ruby Rose, Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Camrus Johnson, Dougray Scott, Elizabeth Anweis, and Nicole Kang. Caroline Dries wrote the pilot and serves as an executive-producing alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schecht, and Geoff Johns.

Batwoman will air on Sundays at 8:00 p.m. on The CW.

    Actually her first apperance was DETECTIVE COMICS #233 in 1956. IF you read through all the comments there are also women commenting that they feel the trailer flung the “Strong woman” card around like a Frisbee. Other strong female characters like Captain Janeway from Voyager, Sarah Conner from Terminator, Ellen Ripley from Aliens and even Buffy for Buffy the vampire slayer were much better representations of female strength. Sure there were times in the TV series I mention that episodes had a women power comment or theme, but it was done tastefully. This trailer shoved it in our faces every chance it got.

  • Chill Cat

    *Sigh* Why the need for the divisive headline?

    The first half of the trailer was …just okay. The second half of the trailer was cringey woke. Wouldn’t surprise me if they took a page out of the Captain Marvel marketing playbook.

    When viewers make comments indicating they don’t like something (admittedly, in a snarky way), that doesn’t make them “trolls.”

    Using trolls as a label is a spin intended to imply that the trailer is being treated unfairly somehow, which is total nonsense. The purpose of a trailer is to generate interest and excitement. If it fails to do that, then the trailer did not do its job and deserves bad ratings.

    If you’re going to write a hit piece, put the blame where it’s due…on the CW marketing team.

  • Dickie2shoes .

    Disgusting, lazy hit piece.

    Someone who genuinely dislikes a trailer and comments on it because of the overt political propaganda that is being pushed is not a troll. I’m surprised you don’t just call them all Nazi’s as well, that is the usual tactic of leftist writers.

    • John Zhou

      lol no kidding

  • Alex Panicco

    So…. if a trailer generates a negative response in someone, and his response is the same as 214k other peoples…. and they all share the same negative response…. that somehow makes them “trolls” unfairly attacking a show?
    Come on, gimme a break!
    People dont like whats being shown in the trailer, simple!
    “Trolls” did not get together on the weekend at their secret lair, and randomly decide which trailer to pick on for the week! People saw a trailer, and this is their reaction.
    CW should deal with the feedback. Or choose to ignore it and go ahead anyway, its their choice.
    But people simply responding negatively to something does not make them trolls.

  • Zen Dcruz

    Seriously trolls that what you call it.
    That show how incredible and lack on knowledge you have.
    You forgot to check the unlike it received.

  • Aaron Price

    At this rate I wouldn’t be surprised CW dropped the show before it even airs, similar to the Wonder Woman tv show a few years back. CW i’m sure are watching closely, but the amount of negative feedback the trailer and dislikes, can’t be ignored. Even I disliked it because I thought it was cringeworthy and too many agenda’s being thrown about. Plus a lack of disrespect for the character of Batman as well. Ruby Rose’s character didn’t come over as somebody likable in the trailer either.

    This could definitely be an issue with fans as well, if the audience don’t click with the main star in the role. I’m predicting at least maybe 1 Season, and doesn’t get renewed, or simply reduce the character for Crossovers instead.

    • Embrace Uncertainty

      If DC/WB gave 2 hoots about public opinion… would they cast Pattinson as Bruce W?

  • 2oothpick “2thpick”

    IMO, there has been one glaring issue in the majority of lead female Heroine roles that have come to screen since Wonder Woman and it stands out like a sore thumb…

    Wonder Woman was AMAZING because of everything it delivered as a whole from the casting(featuring a great female lead in Gal Gadot), script/plot, dialogue, action, production etc…. It wasn’t just simply because the lead character was a female. Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman proved to be an AMAZING Female Superhero by letting her on screen performance speak for itself.

    Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman is
    “A Strong Female Heroine that [IS] a badass”

    So many Plot Themes since i.e (captain marvel, star wars, batwoman etc..) seem to be less about good storylines and are instead centered around force-feeding this “Girls good, guys bad” narrative agenda down people’s throats featuring “whatever subpar script we can tailor around that core principle!”

    Scripts / Main Characters Shouldn’t Be Centered Around Telling Us Non – Stop
    “She’s a badass [BECAUSE] she’s a Female Heroine…. PS guys suck”.

    • Embrace Uncertainty

      Concur. NCIS, NCIS: Nola, & Wynonna Earp are also decent examples of shows w/o a bunch of PC/SJW mumbo jumbo.

    • Darthmanwe

      Thinking independently from both political extremes is way too hard for the readers and the writers of internet news outlets.
      Expecting them to see nuance is like expecting a proper and good bj from a super catholic girl. It’s definitely not impossible, but highly improbable.

  • Karl

    Yep, guys… having an opinion is now considered being a troll. Can you get anymore pathetic.

    • John Zhou

      Nope. They’re just shills and pathetic as John campea, rotton tomatoes, screen rant. I would also possibly add in looper and watchmojo as well

  • Dillan Gandhi

    The showmakers seem to know they irked some people. They more or less reference it in the info pack for the show.

  • it’s: “Katherine Kane”
    Noone is ‘bombing’ anything. The trailer is horrific and people are voicing their opinions…that’s what trailers are for.
    “Ruby Rose will be the first openly gay superhero to lead a live-action series.”
    This ⬆… the lefts fetishistic obsession with race, gender and what people do in their bedrooms is a large part of the problem.
    Normal people do not want this garbage saturating their escapist entertainment.

    • Darthmanwe

      Problem is, even if you are not an escapist and enjoy these things because of their real world parallells…. The way that trailer misses the mark on what makes Kate Kane tick is astounding. Just simply DEMANDING recognition is very very out of character for her, not to mention hitting it on the head with the “I’m a woman” thing. The comics Kate never really gave a rat’s a.. about those things. She is obsessed about finding justice just like Bruce, but in a twist, she reacts a bit differently to situations than anyone else in the Bat Family does. And is she a feminist? Absolutely.

      She’s just not an attention wh..e like the one in the trailer.

  • Kyle Salisbury

    Why weren’t all of us who hated the Sonic trailer trolls?

  • I wonder what type of press favours WB/CW gave Leo to write this propaganda.

    You can not just call complaints “trolls”. That isnt how that word works.
    Are there probably some troll comments on there? probably. But, the vast majority are just people pointing out how horrid the trailer is.

    It doesnt have 230,000 dislikes from trolls. No “troll” out there has been spending the past few days just continuously creating YT accounts for this. It would be exhausting to create that many.

    • John Zhou

      To answer your question of what press favors did leo receive, Im inclined to say a large paycheck

  • InvaderMig

    Lets be honest here, the real troll Leo Rydel. He made a click bait article to get people engaged with his nonsense, and it worked because here we are commenting on it. The typical if you ain’t woke then you’re a troll angle. It’s as old as the flat Earth and eating laundry detergent to challenge yourself. Well played troll.

    • NitroStarman

      ad blockers are a thing. I have it disabled only for certain sites and channels that I think deserve revenue and aren’t clickbait shills like this site.

  • msully72

    There were two lines in the trailer that were jarring – both sounded like 70s political slogans rather than natural dialog. It seems like modern writers have forgotten “Show, don’t tell” – at least, when they are trying to make a political statement rather than a show. Trust your viewers to get it and they will trust you to deliver it.

    Language aside, when it comes to the “Credit for woman’s work” line I hope the writers actually plan on Kane coming to terms with the fact that she is working from someone else’s legacy and don’t just leave her a clueless narcissist. Having flaws is needed in a super hero show but they need to be acknowledged as such. It’s hard to show nuance in a trailer (ie, Starfire and the Titans) so hopefully the final result isn’t as abrasive as the small clips in the trailer.

  • Josh Blount (Nimarus)

    Let me get this straight. Fans of the Batman franchise comment on how the Feminist Propaganda is dialed up to 10 on this series. They complain about the fact that she “Isn’t going to let a man take credit for a woman’s work” after she stole all of batman’s gear and his batsuit. Everything she is was started by a man. But then again, she’s just playing by the Feminist Playbook. Rarely do we ever see a good female character that was built on her own merits. At least we have good female characters like Wonder Woman. But hey, labeling me a troll for calling it what it is helps discredit the negative feedback right?

  • DudeofSteel1Million

    It was downvoted because it sucked.
    Simple as that.

  • John

    Not sure what’s worse. The trailer or the fact this nutless white knight hack had he audacity to defend it.

  • Smiling Shadow

    Police Commissioner: “I never thanked you for saving all those people.”
    Batman: “And you will never have to.”

    Girl: “Oh, look, Batman!”
    Evil Selfish Woman: “How dare anyone confuse ME with Batman?!? Don’t they know I am saving their pathetic lives only so they can worship ME??? Modify the costume at once so everybody knows it is ME!!!”

  • তানজিদ মাহমুদ

    after watching the trailer i think the comments are pretty legit… you’ve disrespected batman….

  • MrValderviche

    If you watch this trailer and don’t think it’s pushing a “feminist agenda” you didn’t watch the trailer. And there’s nothing wrong with pointing out that agenda, as the writer of this article seems to be implying there is.

    Of course, the problem is how present and unnatural the agenda is. The suit won’t be perfect until it fits a woman? She doesn’t want a man to get credit for a woman’s work when she’s out there using one man’s IP and his gear, which was designed by another man?

    Those lines also imply an inability to see past gender. Kate doesn’t want Bruce not getting the credit because she’s a different person and a different hero than him, she doesn’t want him getting the credit because he’s a man and she’s a woman. It lessens both characters by viewing them as their genders and not their characters.

    That’s the issue. How it seems from the trailer that childish “girls vs boys” gender politics are going to be a staple of the series, instead of pushing their feminist agenda by just showing how great a female character can be, like Wonder Woman did.

    Maybe Kate’s self-victimization and inability to get over gender will be a flaw of the character for her to overcome, but based on my viewing of other CW shows the likelihood that the show treats both of those as good traits rather than flaws is about 100%.

    Not to mention that the man Kate is specifically tearing down to raise herself up is a fan favorite and a cultural icon.

    Tries to escape life’s pressures by watching a little sci-fi/drama.
    Gets punched in the face by the fist of gender/identity politics.
    Says “Ouch. I don’t want to be punched in the face”
    Is labeled a troll.

  • Zardock

    So this is actually going to be a thing now where if something is massively criticized we can just claim they’re trolling?
