Ruby Rose is on guard. In the new "Batwoman" teaser, her character Kate Kane already warns us: Humans are not always who they seem to be. Is she referring to the alter ego of her cousin Bruce Wayne, who disappears in the new series and leaves her the content of his Bat-Cave?
But she could also mean herself, because Kate will first have to get used to her secret identity as a "Batwoman". However, apart from the mysterious warning in the teaser, there is little new to see. After all, meanwhile, a launch date for the series on the US channel CW is known: From Sunday, October 9, "Batwoman" goes there weekly on the air.
