Ruby Rose to play lesbian Batwoman in new TV series

Ruby Rose to play lesbian Batwoman in new TV series

Since being reintroduced into DC Comics continuity in 2006, Kate Kane has become a gay comic book icon, and The CW made it known last month that they were going to stay true to that in their casting as well.

Frozen: The Musical star Patti Murin even expressed (in an all-caps tweet, mind you) her interest in playing Batwoman.

Rose's Batwoman will be introduced to USA television audiences on The CW network in a December crossover episode with its other DC Comics shows, including Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl.

She has also appeared in XXX: The Return of Xander Cage, Resident Evil: Final Chapter, John Wick: Chapter Two, and Pitch Perfect 3. Ruby Rose will take up the cape and cowl this winter in The CW's major Arrowverse crossover event, and possibly in the starring role of a Batwoman series that's now in development for the network. But don't call her a hero yet.

An out lesbian, headstrong activist, and fighter with a Liam Neeson-style set of special skills, Kate is poised to serve as Gotham City's protector and symbol of peace.

Batwoman will be introduced in a December crossover event between the network's other DC Comics shows, "Arrow", "The Flash" and "Supergirl".

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

"I'm also an emotional wreck, because this is something of an emotional dream".

"The Bat is out of the bag and I am beyond thrilled and honoured".

If her introduction goes over well, Rose could next headline her own series as the Gotham vigilante. If the show is picked up, Rose will fly onto small screens at some point in 2019 for the first-ever TV series focusing on an LGBTQ superhero. She and Schechter praised Rose on Twitter shortly after the announcement.

According to the character's bio from DC Comics, Kate Kane is a former student in the United States Military Academy. In 2014 she came out as gender fluid.

Batwoman is in development with Greg Berlanti and The Vampire Diaries' Caroline Dries showrunning and the latter penning the pilot script.
