Ruby Rose Will Play Batwoman In Arrowverse Crossover Event

Ruby Rose Cast As Batwoman In the CW’s DC Crossover & Potential Series

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.

Mark Pedowitz, the president of The CW, the United States channel which airs the Arrowverse series, said a pilot episode would be filmed at the end of the year, after production on the "crossover" event was finished.

Model and actress Ruby Rose, star of the forthcoming Kiwi-shot film The Meg, will play Kate Kane, aka Batwoman, Batman's cousin.

Ruby Rose Cast As Batwoman In the CW’s DC Crossover & Potential Series

"Orange is the New Black" alum Ruby Rose is going to suit up for the CW in a history-making role. She went from being used to stifle the fears of gay characters in comics, to being the face of the LGBT movement at DC. The news of Ruby Rose's casting was confirmed by the official Arrow Twitter account, which posted an image of the actress alongside the titular hero she's set to play. Dries executive produces alongside Berlanti Prods.' Berlanti and Sarah Schechter as well as former DC Entertainment president Geoff Johns via his new Mad Ghost Productions banner.

In May, the CW announced this year's highly-anticipated Arrowverse crossover would include the Green Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl fighting alongside...

Rucka, who had written Kate in her own title as well as in Detective Comics before leaving DC for a time, was generally supportive - although he wasn't sure anybody would notice. 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.
