BATWOMAN Showrunner Caroline Dries Teases The Appearance Of A "Pretty Serious Batman Villain"

It looks like Ruby Rose's Kate Kane won't just be contending with her own villains, as showrunner Caroline Dries confirms a major Batman villain will also appear in Batwoman Season 1. More past the jump...

Rachel Skarsten’s Alice may be poised to be one of the central baddies of Batwoman Season 1, but it seems Gotham’s latest defender won’t just have her own rogues’ gallery to deal with, as some of Batman’s deadly foes remain a threat to the city.

“In episode 3, we have a pretty serious Batman villain show up thinking, ‘I’m going to f—ing kill Batman,’” showrunner Caroline Dries told Entertainment Weekly.

While Dries didn’t reveal anymore details on the mysterious villain, she did explain that along with facing some of her cousin’s enemies, Kate Kane will also come to understand the personal sacrifices Bruce Wayne had to pay as the Dark Knight.

"One of the things she’s going to figure out pretty early on is, ‘Oh, I now see why there was no Mrs. Wayne.’ It’s because it was very hard to be the hero of Gotham and have a love life. So her personal life will have its due time on screen, and she’s trying to grapple with how do I be Kate and also be Batwoman.”


Batwoman is currently scheduled to premiere on October 6, 2019 and features a cast that includes Ruby Rose, Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Camrus Johnson, Dougray Scott, Elizabeth Anweis and Nicole Kang.
