Batwoman: The First Season (Blu-ray)
Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on August 21st, 2020
“Trust me. This isn’t the story I expected to be telling. But you know as well as I that stories, like the people who tell them, aren’t always what they seem to be. I suppose I should start here, in Gotham. Three years ago when Batman mysteriously disappeared, it divided the city. Some hoped he’d be back; others figured he was dead. I thought he abandoned Gotham for the same reason he abandoned my family. Because he didn’t care.”
The Arrowverse is losing its founding member. The shortened 8th season of Arrow was its last. It was certainly time. The series was starting to literally fold back on itself, and it was time to move on. But that doesn’t mean the universe it created is getting smaller. It’s expanding. Batwoman joined the universe, and the huge crossover this season and Superman & Lois is about to join next season. There are no empty spaces around this table, at least not for long. Enter Kate Kane, played by Ruby Rose. It’s a character almost as old as the Batman himself.
