Ruby Rose cast as The CW’s Batwoman

Ruby Rose Batwoman

The network has cast model-actress Ruby Rose to play Kate Kane a.k.a. Batwoman. She's even served as the primary featured hero for Gotham City in Detective Comics while Batman wasnt in the picture. The show will follow her journey as an out lesbian and vigilante snuffing out the resurgence of criminals in Gotham, but that doesn't mean you should call her a hero just yet.

Rose is also set to lead the potential Batwoman solo series from writer, director, and executive producer Caroline Dries - the same woman who helped make the CW's Melrose Place, Smallville, and The Vampire Diaries happen.

"Ruby Rose is Batwoman, coming to The CW's crossover event this December!"

The show will focus on Kate Kane, who made her debut in the comics in 2006.

Largest wildfire in California history still growing
Typically, temperatures dip and humidity rises overnight, giving fire crews a window to slow down the spread of the wildfires. Authorities say that the fires are only 30% contained and may not be fully under control for at least another week.

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.

It has now been confirmed that The Meg star Ruby Rose will play Batwoman. And Batwoman, if the series goes forward, lives in Gotham. We're looking forward to seeing what Ruby Rose can do with this beloved character!

She has also appeared in XXX: The Return of Xander Cage, Resident Evil: Final Chapter, John Wick: Chapter Two, and Pitch Perfect 3. 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. Of note is the fact that Rose is an out lesbian playing the notably lesbian superhero. While only the main trio will make up this year's crossover event, the series all share a single universe that also includes "Legends of Tomorrow" and "Black Lightening".

At the moment, nothing is known about the film's plot or who will appear, but with Batman in the title role odds are other key DC characters will appear.
