Batwoman - joining CW's Arrowverse


Recommended Posts

Her best stuff was in Crisis when she was with Supergirl. Felt like she needed someone who she shared good on screen chemistry with to get the best performance, but alas, most of her supporting Batwoman cast were slightly on the wooden side (hello Dougray Scott)

Dougray Scott was one of the better actors I thought- better than Fox Jr, Fake-socialite step-sister, ex-girlfriend cop, and evil (but not really) stepmother anyhow.

Clean slate and all that.

 

I'm trying to work out if the description matches up with some sort of existing character-type? A female Deadpool? A gay Harley Quinn? Barbara Gordon from an alternate dimension where her life was shit from the get go?

Hell yeah, love it. A black female lead is an awesome choice, I hope that they have black writers as well and don't just have her character read as a white person.

 

I'm sure the internet has been perfectly calm and rational about this, especially those who didn't even watch the show prior.

Not only black but black AND lesbian! 

 

Naturally the internet took this in their stride, praising the level of awareness on behalf of the creators and how brave a choice it was, saying it was about time a black female lead had their own...no. It's been a shit show, obviously. 

 

Fucking internet.

Just curious- when you say "read" do you mean how the character speaks? Or the background and origin etc?

In terms of UK law we still have the following categories to apply for any future character change:

Disability

Age

Gender re-assignment

Religion

Pregnancy

Marital status

 

Not sure what the US law has.
