Ruby Rose will play a queer Batwoman on the CW

Ruby Rose is The CW's Batwoman

Rose, who is a lesbian and identifies as genderfluid, will make her much-anticipated debut as Batwoman this fall during the CW's annual four-way Arrowverse crossover event. That and "highly trained street fighter" seem pretty in line with Rose's badass on-screen persona (have you seen xXx: Return of Xander Cage??).

Dries will also executive produce the new show alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns. In an effort to quell parents concerns at the time, DC Comics created Batwoman. Technically, Rose's character Kate Kane, the alter ego of the Gotham defender, will first be arriving on the network's Arrow-verse crossover event this December.

Batwoman has already made history in the comic book world - the character was reintroduced to the DC universe in 2006 when she was established as a Jewish lesbian.

The CW also confirmed that the character will be a lesbian - meaning that if the show is picked up, she will be the first gay character to lead a live-action superhero TV show.

Ruby Rose, whose breakout role was as Stella in Orange Is the New Black, has been a vocal spokesperson for LGBTQ+ rights. Striking fear into the criminals she fights, Kate is someone who must also fight the complications of living a double life, both as a citizen and hero of Gotham. The crossover events began with "Flash vs. Arrow" in 2014 and the last multi-show storyline "Crisis on Earth-X" premiered previous year.

In recent years, Batwoman (real name Katherine Kane) has become a big part of the extended Batman family. She would reappear in the '70s but was eventually killed off for good. On film, Batwoman appeared in Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman, voiced by Kyra Sedgwick, a 2002 direct-to-video animated film based on animated series The New Batman Adventures.

Batwoman is coming to TV and she'll be played by an Australian. We're eager to see her take on the character, and hopefully see her shine in her own series soon.
