Ruby Rose Confirmed As Batwoman In Upcoming DC Arrow-verse Shows

Deadline reports that Rose will make her debut as the character, out lesbian and trained street fighter Kate Kane, on The CW's upcoming annual DC Arrowverse crossover event this fall.

It's also worth pointing out that having Bruce appear on Batwoman - or any Arrowverse series, for that matter - would require leasing the character's rights from Warner Bros., which now has all hands on deck in preparation of the standalone DC film from Matt Reeves.

Ruby's Batwoman will be an out and proud lesbian, aka Kate Kane, who fights crime and social injustice in Gotham City. As in comics, television's Batwoman will also have to face many of her own personal demons even as she suits up as Gotham's symbol of hope and justice. The series will be executive-produced by super producer Greg Berlanti and Caroline Dries, who will also serve as the writer on the project. She will first make an appearance during a crossover episode. It was recently announced that Supergirl would be introducing TV's first transgender superhero.

The coveted role of Kate Kane a.k.a. Batwoman has been filled!

As only a comic book franchise can do, there are actually two Batwoman characters in the current DC Comics "continuity", one which uses the real name Kathy, and the other which uses the real name Kate.

Before Batwoman becomes a reality for Rose, she'll next be seen in Jason Statham's new shark movie The Meg, which hits USA cinemas this weekend.

'But don't call her a hero yet.

This marks the second time The CW has made waves for LGBTQ inclusion in its superhero shows in recent weeks. The new Batwoman, who was reintroduced in the comic books in 2006, is an out lesbian. She next appears in The Meg.
