The CW Casts Ruby Rose As Batwoman

Ruby Rose Batwoman

Her character will debut in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover event on the network in December. The Australian actress has landed the coveted, titular role role in Batwoman, which The CW is developing as a standalone series.

But you can quash your hopes that a Batwoman solo series means we'll see Batman in the Arrowverse.

Fans of Rose will remember her turn in season 3 of Orange is the New Black where her Stella character had a brief fling with Piper before that ended on a sour note and she was sent to max. Batwoman will be the first outwardly LGBTQ superhero, male or female, on a comic book TV show, which makes it pretty groundbreaking. "Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city's criminal resurgence", reads the official logline. But don't call her hero yet. In addition to a number of other achievements, multi-hyphenate Rose wrote, produced, and starred in the short film Break Free, a tribute to gender fluidity that became a viral hit in 2015, and is a fervent supporter of many charities, including the causes closest to her heart, such as Anti Bullying, Women and Gay Rights, Animal Welfare and Youth Mental Health. "This is something I would have died to have seen on TV when I was a young member of the LGBT community who never felt represented on TV and felt alone and different". Berlanti and Schechter will produce via Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television where the company is based.

Caroline Dries, who served as a writer and producer on The Vampire Diaries, is set to be the executive producer on Batwoman. In an effort to quell parents concerns at the time, DC Comics created Batwoman. Rose, who is herself openly gay, may be best known to audiences for her role on Netflix's Orange Is the New Black.

Her latest movie, action thriller The Meg, opens this week.
