Ruby Rose to play Batwoman for CW's superhero universe

The CW is also working on developing a separate Batwoman series - which, if it gets picked up, would presumably also star Rose in the role of the titular superhero.

Her character is described in a CW release as a "highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city's criminal resurgence".

Rose quickly confirmed the casting on Twitter, proclaiming in tweet replies her excitement to play Kate Kane, an openly lesbian superhero who helps protect Gotham City.

The Batwoman script will be written and co-executive-produced by The Vampire Diaires'Caroline Dries. She will first make an appearance during a crossover episode.

Surprising, but true, Batwoman would introduce the first TV show focused on an out superhero!

Batwoman, aka Kate Kane, is one of several vigilantes who protect Gotham. She's also one of the few out LGBTQ+ characters in comics. The Silver Age Batwoman is best known as Kathy Kane, who was created in order to offset rumors that Batman and Robin were homosexuals. But don't call her hero yet.

It's official - Ruby Rose is coming to Arrowverse in the upcoming crossover event as Batwoman! In December, Rose will team up with the pre-existing CW shows including "Arrow", "The Flash", "Legends of Tomorrow" and "Supergirl". She first appeared as a love interest for Bruce Wayne in the 1950's after censorship reached an all-time high. Other writers, such as Grant Morrison, have reimagined her in the years since.

Batwoman returned as a character in DC Comics in 2006. However, Kate still deals with her inner demons that go back to her history with her dad.

In addition to her modelling career, she has co-hosted various television shows, namely Australia's Next Top Model and The Project on Network Ten.

Rose did have a cameo in season 4 but hasn't appeared in the last two seasons, except for a brief mention of the character's name, and a mention of the actor's real name when referencing women with short hair.
