C/P from Wikipedia:
Ruby Rose as Kate Kane / Batwoman: A highly trained street fighter and out lesbian with a fierce passion for social justice who dedicates herself to defending Gotham as a vigilante in the absence of Batman.

Meagan Tandy as Sophie Moore: A former military academy graduate and high-level private security agent who serves as one of Gotham's protectors.

Camrus Johnson as Luke Fox: A staunch Dark Knight loyalist and the son of Lucius Fox who keeps Wayne Tower secure in Batman's absence but understands that Gotham needs a new hero.

Nicole Kang as Mary Hamilton: Kate's stepsister and polar opposite and an influencer-in-the-making who makes it her mission to help the men and women living in Gotham's underserved communities.

Rachel Skarsten as Alice: The leader of the Wonderland Gang whose personality goes from maniacal to charming and back again as she sets out to erode Gotham's sense of security.

Dougray Scott as Jacob Kane: Kate's father and a former military colonel who manages The Crows, a private security firm, in an attempt to protect Gotham better than Batman could.

Elizabeth Anweis as Catherine Hamilton-Kane: Kate's stepmother and one of Gotham's most powerful citizens who made her fortune as a defense contractor.

Sam Littlefield as Mouse: A figure who works for Alice and the Wonderland Gang.

Rachel Maddow as the voice of Vesper Fairchild: A snarky gossip maven and media personality and former flame of Oliver Queen

Sebastian Roché as Dr. Campbell: A well-known plastic surgeon and philanthropist who is respected throughout Gotham.

Taking place 3 years after Bruce Wayne/Batman has disappeared from Gotham, the city is now "protected" by a private security force known as the Crows. The show also backtracks a little from last year's crossover where Kate was already established as Batwoman.

Kevin Conroy is going to play Bruce Wayne/Batman in the crossover, calling it now.

Also, Vesper Fairchild a former flame of Oliver Queen? That should be interesting to see in the crossover as well.

Plugging "Batwoman" in to YouTube brings, in order: the official CW trailer for the show, and then an unending stream of men being intractably mad that this show even exists.

After watching The Good Place, nothing can match its pace, but as a pilot it's definitely trying to set up all of the pieces on the board that it wants to play with quickly. Also, I guess I didn't pay enough attention to the casting to realize that Kate's step-sister is Asian

Holy poo poo I hate Kate's step-mom already.

It's not surprising. I was wondering how they were going to catch the series up to where it was last year in time for crisis and welp.

Looks a bit grittier than Arrow. Camera-wise.

I know part of the actual reason that Kate wanted to actually be a badass was because of the trauma of losing her sister but if definitely reads at the moment as her wanting her dad's approval and idk if that's the route they wanted to take instead. Especially because in the original Kate's sister is kidnapped rather than seemingly implied to have fallen off of a bridge in a car

Wow, they're really going for giving depth to Mary immediately (also team Medic). That's rather impressive.

Edit: That switch seems rather trivial for Batman. I'd think there'd be at least another layer or two so that someone doesn't accidentally open it or something. But I guess it's sorta reminiscent of the clock and the time of death of his parents.

Depends on how fast they want to run through plot lines. I'd give it to Season 3 but breadcrumbs already set throughout season 2.

Yeah that's why I was asking. I was wondering if they used it here.

So I really liked the Greg Rucka/JH Williams run on Batgirl. Will I dig this show?

We've been spoiled with Batgod Batman who has a plan for everything instead of Above Average Guy Batman who still uses Alfred as his password.

Interesting start fighting on a high-rise building. I'm pretty sure most fights in Arrow were in warehouses, so it's already a bit different.

Honestly, that's fair. It'll be interesting to see how they spin some of that. Alfred being the password to the building cams isn't quite as egregious, imo, since it's just for the buildings and not his mini-batcave, but yeah, that's also kinda bad.

Aslo do note that Luke said he was afraid of being fired twice so there's a previous time he was fired that they'll probably get into as part of his backstory.

I mean, it's just a show, buuut

Bruce was a kung fu punchy kicky guy. Kate's a soldier with mercenary training and would probably cap a dude if it came to it, so she's going to pick up tactical gear quicker.

Really glad they didn't drag the world's most obvious mystery out longer than an episode but it's gonna throw off the Batman/Joker dynamic if they're sisters and that was going really well.

It's not supposed to be that dynamic. Spoilers. But I'm also really surprised they didn't drag that mystery out.
