  • Ruby Rose Batwoman

Deadline reports that Rose will make her debut as the character, out lesbian and trained street fighter Kate Kane, on The CW's upcoming annual DC Arrowverse crossover event this fall. The show is only in the writing stages, but as long as Rose's backdoor pilot in the form of being on Arrow goes well we'll be getting one without a doubt. On the very queer-friendly CW, however, Kane/Batwoman will be in fine company with Black Lightning's Thunder (comicdom's fist black lesbian superhero) and CW Seed's animated The Ray representing for the LGBTQ community. "Based on the characters from DC".

Kane, a cousin of Bruce Wayne, also targets Gotham city's criminal underbelly.

Rose, who came out as a lesbian at age 12, has identified herself as genderfluid. Rose was most recently awarded with the Stephen F. Kolzak Award at the 2016 GLAAD Media Awards, which is presented to an LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality and acceptance.

Confirmation of the casting and character comes just a few weeks after Warner Bros announced at Comic-Con that a transgender superhero named Dream would be added to its Supergirl television series. Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter will also executive produce via Berlanti Productions. A standalone Batwoman show is also in the works, with Caroline Dries set to write the script, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The character Batwoman began appearing in DC Comics stories beginning with Detective Comics #233 in 1956, in which she was introduced as a love interest for Batman. In fact, Batwoman was one of the most popular books of the early New 52 era before the creative team of W. Haden Blackman and J.H. Williams III left the book after DC refused to let Batwoman marry Maggie Sawyer.

Rose's previous credits include Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, John Wick: Chapter 2 and Pitch Perfect 3. She's set to star alongside Jason Statham in this weekend's giant shark flick The Meg.
