Move over, Captain Marvel. The trailer for the CW’s new Batwoman series has dropped, and she wants Carol Danvers to hold her beer. There’s a new HER-o in town, boys.
So far the internet doesn’t seem to be taking to the Batwoman trailer, as it currently has 35,000 upvotes compared to 79,000 downvotes on YouTube.
While some of the downvotes could be attributed to good old fashioned trolling, it would seem to suggest that a lot of people just aren’t down with what they’ve seen so far in the teaser.
Last year, Batwoman star Ruby Rose was driven off of Twitter by mob accusations of not being Jewish enough for the role of Kate Kane, or “gay enough” despite the actress being LGBTQ.
Our Opinion on the Batwoman Trailer…
Oh boy. It’s complicated.
Ruby Rose’s Batwoman mentions she’s a woman, like, 500 times in this trailer. And when she’s not telling you how kickass women are, the background music does. Is the cringe real, or blown completely out of proportion?
