The CW has crowned its newest Batwoman: model-actor Ruby Rose will take up the queer, Jewish mantle. Indeed, Rose, with a tattoo-brandishing badass look and a character-appropriate biography, since she's openly lesbian, will embody the role of Kate Kane/Batwoman for this exciting and potentially groundbreaking CW series. "We'll do a pilot for mid-season [and] whether it goes to series, I can not tell you".
"The Bat is out of the bag and I am beyond thrilled and honored".
The character will debut in Arrow, and then go on to star in her own show in the 2019-2020 TV season. As a young, gay person, she never felt represented on TV. Adding to that, DC Comics describes her as having "self-destructive tendencies when it comes to personal relationships".
Her latest movie, action thriller The Meg, opens this week. Rose, who is herself openly gay, may be best known to audiences for her role on Netflix's Orange Is the New Black.
