Did You Know?


During a podcast with Comic Book Central, shortly after Arrow concluded, Guggenheim revealed that it struck him during Batwoman's very first appearance in 2018's "Elseworlds" crossover event that Kate Kane was essentially filling the Green Arrow's role in the Arrowverse. As he put it, in colorful terms: "After we did 'Elseworlds,' I said to the powers that be, 'I feel like I just introduced my wife to her new boyfriend,' because in many ways, Batwoman is carrying on the grim and gritty mantle of Arrow now that Arrow's going away. It was very surreal." See more »


Batwoman clearly has black paint around her eyes whenever she wears the cowl. But whenever she takes the cowl off, there's never any paint around her eyes. This happens in several episodes and is common amongst many superhero/comic book shows with masked characters. See more »

User Reviews

I keep wanting this show to improve
4 December 2019 | by sgr818See all my reviews

Simply put, this is not a very good show. It's a Batman show without Batman. Which is ok, but every show we are reminded that Batman is not there and that Kate Kane is not him.

Brightest point of the show is Alice. I love this take on her character. Rachel Skarsten is a good actress who gives this character a lot of depth. She also stared in Bird of Prey years back if anyone remembers that one (stream it on CW-Seed). Birds of Prey was better than this show, and it's almost 20 years old.

Dougray Scott is a great actor and is the only other a bright point, but it written very poorly.

Darkest point of the show is everything else.

I don't see it sticking around unless major improvements are made.
