But, looks good to be fair.  My only criticism would be - needs red boots, and the texture of the costume seems more mesh then leather.

Apart from that, looks pretty good and faithful.

Peace.

Maybe the costume is some kind of advanced tech. Quasi-bulletproof or whatever. .

Regarding the Boots-that may seem like a quibble and it is-but there is a way in the JH Williams art that they really do strike out-the red in the design helps it stand out from the background well and design -its ludicrious obviously from a ninjas design stand point-but ehh. This design is a little hard to see where the mostly blackbound begins and her costume starts.

That could reflect how they present her in the story, that could be any number of things-but i donno.

Will see how it plays out.

Fingers crossed. Live action Batman has always been a favorite of mine - be it West, Keaton, or Bale (maybe even Kilmer, Clooney, and Affleck). I've digressed already... ...the edited picture looks good. Strangely it looks better than many/most of the heavily edited Benoist promo photos. Will I watch it? I'll give it two or three episodes. She's gotta carry it however, because unlike Gotham which after mostly tiring of Kid Batman/Bruce I mostly watch for Victor Zazz, Penguin, and Alfred. I don't know what she's got much in supporting cast I'd be enthused about.

Batwoman has been given a series order and a teaser has been released. Not much, but it's something to wet our whistles.

Looks like the show will be on TheCW. New addition to the Arrowverse? Batwoman appeared in the Elseworlds crossover event, so maybe that was a backdoor pilot for this series?

That was the plan.

Great, another show for the CW to screw around with.

Most likely replacing Arrow in Berlanti-verse.

I wasn't too enamored with her introduction in the crossover last year.  But to be fair, I will give it a shot.

Maybe Ruby Rose in the part will grow on me.

Peace.

At least CW is determined to keep bringing us new superhero(ine) shows, even if their artistic tradition (if I can call it that) isn't ideal. 

There are always snippets and episodes that are good. I try not to dwell on the lost opportunities, but its hard given they spend all that money and could do way better. But, it is what it is.

After watching the trailer (which you are right Fats, is pretty much a condensed episode), and careful consideration, I think I am going to pass.

That just looked bad Oo 

Peace.

Man, I'm a big fan of strong confident women but I cringed so hard from that trailer. I mean, it was dreadful.

"I'm not going to let a man take credit for a woman's work" ...while she's literally using everything that Bruce Wayne created to be Batman. I mean, come on...

While I'm not going to indict any series based on its trailer, it's head scratching why Berlanti's superheroine shows go SO overboard with the "independent woman" messages, especially at the infancy of the series.  I remember the did similar things with Supergirl on S1.  It's so over-the-top, it sounds stupid.....

That said, I'm still gonna watch it to see what its like :)

"...while she's literally using everything that Bruce Wayne created to be Batman. I mean, come on..."

I'm doing everything I can to enjoy/support the CW DC shows (including lately skipping ahead for large sections) so I was watching the full trailer with an open mind and eye for action, story and style and didn't catch the irony there but you got a true out loud laugh from me with that observation.

What I'd like to know is do the writers let their 12 year olds watch this? Implied meat hook suspension? They did it in a Smallville episode with Vandervoort too and I wanted *out.*

Yet, my biggest qualm is Luke Fox. Can he please be a nerd without being a dork. All I see is stereotype. is Camrus Johnson in his heart of hearts really okay with it ~ and did he come up with it or was he directed?

I plan to watch it too. We all know by now that CW goes overboard on cultural messaging, which its primary demographic greatly enjoys.

I'm getting better every year at ignoring what I don't like and focusing on what I do. Which frankly, is the  secret of living a long life filled with happiness and optimism. . 

I'm not as old as Willie Nelson, but I'm learning the same lesson that he religiously follows: he completely avoids negative thoughts and negative people. Also, smoking a lot of weed helps. 

So, bring on CW's Batwoman. I'll be ready. And given I'm not as over-the-top enthusiastic about the character, as I was with Supergirl, I can just let it flow.

Kind of Batwoman related. It's been announced that Kevin Conroy, the man who has been *the* voice of Batman since the 90s will be appearing *in person* as a future Bruce Wayne in Crisis. Honestly, I think my heart stopped when I saw the news.

If they pair him with Mark Hamill as a future Joker I might have a stroke. I mean look at them.

Awesome news :)

Conroy is THE BATMAN imo :)  And his paring with Hamill is just pure gold :)

Looking forward even more now to Crisis :)

Peace.
