The first official teaser for the show has arrived and sees Kate Kane in all her glory on top of a building with the Bat lens shining in the night sky. “Batman is missing. What does that do when your heroes are gone and who steps into that void?” Sarah Schechter, an executive producer for the series previously stated. “What’s great about the restriction of just focusing on Batwoman is that we have to build a world for our character. It’s a character that people don’t really know.”

She added: “The Gotham we talk about [in “Batwoman”] kind of reminds me of Johannesburg during apartheid. There’s a real difference between those that have and those that don’t.”

Batwoman is said to arrive in a few more months, watch the official trailer below and let us know if you're here for it.
