The CW’s Batwoman series cast its villain…

February 8th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Looks like the Batwoman pilot over at The CW has found its main villain and, in true The CW style, it’s another veteran DC actress.

Rachel Skarsten has been cast as Alice in the upcoming show from Greg Berlanti. Skarsten played Dinah Lance in the Birds of Prey TV series back in 2002 so she’s already part of the DC Universe in a fairly substantial way and since BoP was made by The WB which was formerly The CW ala Smallville, it could be argued she’s already in the Arrowverse. We love all these connections!

As for Alice, here character, she’s sort of Batwoman’s answer to The Joker: 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.

Th character typically speaks in lines from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland tales but is not related to either Joker or Mad Hatter in any way.

Oh and she may or may not be Batwoman’s sister…

We’re looking forward to seeing how this all turns out.

Batwoman has been given a pilot order and is likely to join the The CW’s Arrowverse in the near future.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
