In just a few months, the first-ever female-led “Bat” series will premiere on the CW. It closes out Batman’s 80th anniversary year. One would think fans would be pleased to be getting more Bat-action. Even more, it’s a fresh story we’ve not seen before. Yet, instead, we are left wondering how Batwoman can survive the fan-hate directed at it. Most of it gets directed at all of the trailers released thus far. Pop culture editor Salomé Gonstad covered this initial backlash last month. As more and more trailers hit YouTube, the hate continues. Many of these folks believe Batwoman can’t survive the fan-hate, thanks to the power of the “like” to “dislike” ratio on YouTube.

Second Birds of Prey Trailer Highlights How Harley Needs a Girl Gang Not the Joker

The second Birds of Prey trailer debuted on Thursday ahead of the films February release date.

But she has nowhere near the recognition of, ahem, some other DC characters. However, with the upcoming release of Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) […]
