Ruby Rose Became Very Emotional After Landing The Role Of Batwoman

CW's Kate Kane with Ruby Rose will be DC's first LGBTQ character to make an on-screen debut

Both Variety and Deadline report that Rose, now appearing in the giant-shark action movie The Meg, has been tapped to portray Kate Kane in both the upcoming Arrow/Flash/Supergirl crossover special and the potential Batwoman series being helmed by Caroline Dries that could air in 2019.

The 32-year-old Orange Is The New Black actress made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night (August 8).

As previously reported, Rose will star in The CW's adaptation of the comic book for its connected superhero universe that already includes shows like "The Flash" and "Supergirl".

In case you missed it yesterday, Ruby Rose has been cast as Batwoman in a standalone TV series set to debut on the CW in 2019.

Rose went onto explain that the role is meaningful for her personally as well. Rose, who is also openly gay, said there wasn't anything like Batwoman on television she could identify with as a child. Kate Kane is the second Batwoman in DC Comics' history, with the first being Kathy Kane, Bruce's aunt and Kate's mother. Fans will get their first look at Rose's take on the character in the big Arrowverse crossover event this December on The CW. Kane is described as a highly trained street fighter with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind. But don't call her a hero yet. "In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope". With credits in action flicks like John Wick 2, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, and this summer's The Meg, the Aussie is more than capable of taking on Gotham City's worst.
