I think we can all agree that films/TV shows starring female badasses in lead roles are usually very good. Xena the Warrior Princess, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Ellen Ripley, Sarah Connor etc. ‘Wonder Woman’ and ‘Captain Marvel’ were also pretty damn good.

So when a Batwoman series was announced starring Ruby Rose, we had every reason to look forward to it. That is until they released this shocking trailer.
Get a load of this absolute mess:
Did you guys get the memo that Ruby Rose/Batwoman is a woman? Because I’m not sure mentioning it 1000 times just in the trailer was enough. I mean Jesus! Like I said it’s great any time a film or TV show can pull off a badass female lead but the way they keep hammering that point home is just annoying and unnecessary.
The YouTube thumbs up/down ratio says it all – yikes:
Naturally the YouTube comment section brought out the best the internet has to offer:
Lol… come on, some of those were pretty funny.
So yeah, it looks from that trailer that whoever produced and directed this version of Batwoman just wanted to tick as many social justice boxes as they could and while that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it seems to have completely compromised the quality and watchability of the actual show. We’ll see what happens when it actually drops though (no release date yet).
