The CW’s Batwoman star Ruby Rose shows off her impressive fighting skills in a new training video.
The pilot for The CW’s Batwoman finally began shooting this week and will bring the fan-favorite Elseworlds character back to the Arrowverse.
Ruby Rose prepares for the exciting role in her latest Instagram post where she shows off her fighting skills in a quick training video. You can see her prepare for her biggest task yet by clicking on the post below!
Batwoman arrives to the Arrowverse just as it seems a number of its biggest heroes are leaving. Many rumors have recently swirled around regarding some of the Arrowverse’s most iconic characters exiting after the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event, although none have been officially confirmed to exit so far. The exciting new event was teased at the end of the Elseworlds crossover event, which aired in December.
In The CW’s shared television universe the iconic caped crusader Batman has been missing for three years and his cousin Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) has taken matters into her own hands to serve justice to the evils of Gotham City.
The CW’s Arrow, Supergirl, and The Flash return with new episodes this week. The CW’s other Arrowverse series Legends of Tomorrow will return with new episodes starting in April. What do you think of Ruby Rose’s training video? Are you excited for The CW’s Batwoman series? Sound off in the comment section below!
Here is the reported plot synopsis for Batwoman:
Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane (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.
Ruby Rose’s version of Batwoman was first introduced in last year’s CW crossover television event Elseworlds alongside the likes of established stars as The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl. Audiences were largely taken with the character and now she will indeed get her own standalone television series. We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding The CW’s Batwoman pilot as soon as more information becomes available.
Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
