Ruby Rose Will Play Batwoman In Arrowverse Crossover Event

She'll be playing Kate Kane, a Gothamite "with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind", describes DC Comics.

The CW is also developing a Batwoman series slated for the 2019-20 season, that (if it is picked up) will make her the first openly gay superhero to headline a live-action show or movie.

In a city desperate for a saviour, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope.

The CW superhero shows can vary in quality from show to show and season to season so hopefully Batwoman comes out swinging. And she's been on a roll ever since, appearing as badass assassins in John Wick: Chapter 2 and xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, and as a scene-stealing rock singer in Pitch Perfect 3.
