  • July 20, 2018: Summary of Comic-Con panel. Jennifer Kluska is a director. First clip," The Late Batsby" featured Batgirl falling asleep while studying. She gets a call from Wonder Woman about having to fight Mr. Freeze. Her dad is still up, so she can't go running off and has a humorously frustrated reaction. Batgirl tries to catch up by any means possible, including going through sewers and people's apartments. And to our surprise, she's actually the first on the scene! The show explores balances your teenage life with your super life with the idea of secret identities. Batgirl is sleuth as a hero, but as a teen, she's a fangirl. Jessica Cruz, the Green Lantern, as a hero is a protector, but as a teen, she's an activist. Zatanna as hero is magic, but as a teen, she's a showoff. Wonder Woman is kind of a fish out of water, dealing with being a hero and with adolescent stuff like crushes. Has an accent. Barbara Gordon has an after-school job that is basically a Taco Bell. The second clip showed some of the girls in detention. Wonder Woman enters the room, to the awe of the others. In her introduction, she proclaims that she's not a girl, she's a woman before getting in a fight. The girls in the room inevitably all reveal, thanks to the deductions of Batgirl, that they all have powers and agree to band together. Katana is coming back, and there are big plans for her. Supergirl and Superman have a pretty strong storyline that will be featured on the show, a thing with Wonder Woman and her mom, and Batgirl with her dad. Barbara Gordon and Harley Quinzel are best friends that grew up together in Gotham, and they have no idea that they're beating each other up at night. Harley loves very hard. She loves her friend Barbara, and she makes bad choices for love. Newsarama Article

  • July 22, 2018: Q&A with cast and crew. SyFy Wire YouTube
  • July 25, 2018: John de Lancie voices Mr. Freeze in the theatrical short. The series will be 11 minute episodes. Catwoman "is the leader and brains of the group who doesn't sully herself with physical fighting." Giganta and Livewire "are the typical school bullies but whereas Giganta is "the bully who might pound your face in, Livewire is going to kill your soul" Livewire uses a media channel to embarrass her victims, a modern teen angle on the character that is incredibly relevant. Poison Ivy was compared to Ally Sheedy's character from The Breakfast Club who is the waif and recluse most than likely talking to a potted plant. Zatanna might be voiced by Kari Wahlgren. Expect a Catwoman versus Supergirl conflict that will entail a brains versus brawn episode. Comics Beat Article
