Ruby Rose cast as Batwoman in new TV series

Now that's progress. According to a press release from DC, Ruby Rose has been cast to play Batwoman in a new Arrowverse crossover event.

Ruby Rose will play the iconic DC Comics character, first making her debut as Kate Kane in the Arrowverse crossover event this December, The CW announced Tuesday. Striking fear into the criminals she fights, Kate is someone who must also fight the complications of living a double life, both as a citizen and hero of Gotham. 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 prospective Batwoman series will be written by Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries), who is also executive producing alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Geoff Johns.

The CW was reportedly on the hunt for an out lesbian actress to portray Batwoman and found their ideal heroine in Rose.

The character of Batwoman, created two years later, and initially as a romantic interest for Batman, has often been seen as a reaction to that perception.

William Lacy Clay faces a challenge from the left from Cori Bush, a nurse and activist who has campaigned with Ocasio-Cortez. Although the race was still too close to call, Mr Trump claimed victory and took credit for the Republican's success.


The CW's "Arrowverse" of superhero shows includes Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow.

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.
