Rose's Batwoman is Jewish & More TCA News

Many fans have been wondering just how much of Kate Kane from the comics we would get. We know clearly that the character identifies as a lesbian but after seeing the pilot we still weren't clear if the show would address another aspect of the character, her religion. Today at the TCA presentations (Television Critics Association), Executive Producer Caroline Dries has made it clear that Kate Kane is Jewish. At the TCA's she went on to add that "in the pilot, while it wasn't overtly shown, the two sisters are returning from a bar mitzvah". The Executive Producer promises that Kate's religion will be brought up organically throughout the show.

In addition, we are learning that Tommy Elliot will debut in the second episode of the season and speaking of Batman villains, Magpie will also be showing up in the first season of Batwoman. Speaking on the tone of the show, Caroline Dries wants the show to stay very grounded. She mentioned the show not tackling aliens or the like. We have to assume this excludes Kara Zor-El though. Speaking to that end, Ruby Rose said she loved working with Supergirl and that the show has some aspirations to try and get those two to team up together again.

Let us know what you think in the comments below and in the forum!

Quoting markhb:
Magpie?? MAGPIE???? She wasn't bad on Gotham, but she may be my most hated character in the comics (even more than Jason Todd ;) .


Well, if she is hated that much, the people will love to see her ....behind...getting kicked by Batwoman ;-)
And I love female jewel thiefs! Maybe Catwoman will show up some day as well....

Very good to know. Looking very forward to seeing how things and villains pan out in the series.

It should be an interesting set of developments. Having a religious/ethnic identity on TV may be a touch tricky, but if it is handled properly, it should be enjoyable. ;-)
