'Batwoman' Finds Its Villain With 'Rachel Skarsten' In The CW's DC Pilot

Recommended Posts

Deadline is reporting that Rachel Skarsten will play the villainous lead opposite Ruby Rose in Batwoman, the CW’s drama pilot.  The character Skarsten will play is Alice and she is being compared to Batman's Joker.  She is the leader of her Lewis Carroll–inspired Wonderland Gang. Swinging unpredictably between maniacal and charming, Alice has made it her mission to undermine Gotham’s sense of security.

Batwoman marks the first gay lead character of a live-action superhero series. Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane (Rose) soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence.

The pilot comes from Greg Berlanti’s Berlanti Productions, Warner Bros Television and being written by Caroline Dries and directed by David Nutter.  Dries executive produces the Batwoman pilot alongside Nutter, Berlanti Prods’ Berlanti and Sarah Schechter as well as former DC Entertainment president Geoff Johns via his new Mad Ghost Productions banner.

I’m still kind of surprised that they’re going ahead with a Batwoman series... Considering how little personality we saw from her in that big DC series Crossover. But, I suppose I shouldn’t be all that surprised.
