Ruby Rose Cast As ‘Batwoman’

Australian actress Ruby Rose is set to star as Batwoman in a new US TV series for the CW network. She will make her first appearance in CW’s annual crossover episode between four of the network’s DC shows: “The Flash”, “Arrow”, “Legends of Tomorrow”, and “Supergirl”. Variety though has reported that she will get her own standalone Batwoman series, which will be developed by the team behind “The Vampire Diaries”. If the Batwoman show does go into production, Rose who is openly gay and identifies as gender fluid, will head the first TV series focusing on an LGBTQ superhero.

“Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence, But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.” the CW said in a statement.

Caroline Dries has been appointed both writer and executive producer of the project. Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter will also executive produce via Berlanti Productions. Geoff Johns, who recently stepped down as the head of DC Entertainment, will also executive produce through his Mad Ghost Productions. Berlanti Productions will produce in association with Warner Bros. Television. The character Batwoman was first introduced in Detective Comics #233 in 1956 as Katherine Kane, a wealthy Gotham City heiress who, inspired by Batman’s heroic deeds, created for herself a superhero alter-ego. Rose will play Kate Kane, a lesbian who professes the Jewish faith and is, in the comic books at least, romantically involved with Gotham City detective Renee Montoya.

Ruby Rose is set to don the cape in December during the CW cross over episode.
