Ruby Rose to debut as The CW’s Batwoman

Ruby Rose will be donning the legendary cowl of Batwoman on the CW, TV Line reports. Her character will debut in a December crossover of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow, with a standalone series in the works for 2019.

Batwoman a.k.a. Kate Kane is “armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind.” That and “highly trained street fighter” seem pretty in line with Rose’s badass on-screen persona (have you seen xXx: Return of Xander Cage??).

The character is also canonically lesbian, as is Rose, and producers were specifically scouting an actress of the same sexuality to better inform the character, along with writer Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries), who also identifies as a lesbian.

In the comics, Kane’s sexuality gets her kicked out of military school, and she’s fully immersed in the party scene when she meets Batman.

Batwoman is expected to premiere in 2019.
