Ruby Rose set to soar as gay Batwoman

A stand-alone series about Batwoman, whose real name is Kate Kane, is in development for the 2019-20 TV season. The DC Comics character is set to make her debut during this year's Arrowverse crossover event, which was announced in May. Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries) is writing the script and executive producing the series.

If you're a comic book geek, that's a significant detail as it dramatically increases the chances that either Batwoman's own series or the other Arrowverse shows could at some point feature Batman himself. Technically, Rose's character Kate Kane, the alter ego of the Gotham defender, will first be arriving on the network's Arrow-verse crossover event this December. The character was first introduced in Detective Comics in 1956 and was reimagined for DC Comics' New 52 as a Jewish lesbian.

Next up for The CW is expanding the Arrowverse to include Batwoman, who will be played by former Orange is the New Black star, Ruby Rose.

Batwoman, aka Kate Kane, is one of several vigilantes who protect Gotham. The Aussie actress, who came into global prominence off her television run on Netflix comedy Orange is the New Black, quickly reinvented herself as an action star (barring a role in Pitch Perfect 3), with movie roles in Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, John Wick: Chapter 2 and this weekend's Jason Statham-starring giant shark movie, The Meg.

"Kate is fully aware of how bad-ass she is whenever she enters a room, even though she prefers to put a smile on your face".

'But don't call her a hero yet. I'm pretty sure she may have secretly actually been Batwoman this entire time. She was one of the first vigilantes to make up the "Batman Family". Though, honestly, I don't know where Doc Wertham could've gotten the idea that a single bachelor and his practically-adult ward-spending their nights traipsing around in tights and carousing with flamboyant men wearing more makeup than the Gabor sisters-were anything more than friends. We're looking forward to seeing what Ruby Rose can do with this beloved character!
