The CW released their first Batwoman trailer starring Ruby Rose.

Take a look.

The series looks like it will take place in Gotham in a world where Batman no longer patrols the city. With Batman out of the picture Gotham appears to have hired a private security force called Crows Security led by Kate Kane’s father Jacob Kane. Kane notes they represent, “order, security, safety.”

However, they might meet their match when actress Rachel Skarsten arrives in Gotham as the villain Alice, whose character has been compared to Joker.

“If Batwoman had a Joker, it would be Alice, the leader of her Lewis Carroll–inspired Wonderland Gang. Swinging unpredictably between maniacal and charming, Alice has made it her mission to undermine Gotham’s sense of security.”

With Skarsten’s Alice seemingly taking control of Gotham and kidnapping what looks to be Kate Kane’s girlfriend, she decides to join in on the action, and raids Wayne Manor, where she discovers the Batcave.Upon making the discovery, she also finds one of Batman’s old suits and tells Luke Fox played by Camrus Johnson to fix Batman’s suit. She then suits up and begins taking care of crime in the city. However, it appears the city believes Kate Kane’s actions are the return of Batman, and she doesn’t seem to happy that they believe it is Batman helping the city. She states, “I’m not about to let a man take credit for a woman’s work.”

Here’s the official description for the Batwoman show:

“Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane (star Ruby 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.”

Batwoman will air on The CW’s on Sundays in the fall. The show joins other DC superhero shows on The CW including Black Lightning, The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

The series stars Ruby Rose as Batwoman, Rachel Skarsten as Alice, Camrus Johnson as Luke Fox, Dakota Daulby as Cheshire Cat,and  Dougray Scott as Colonel Jacob Kane.
