Batwoman: Ruby Rose Cast As Kate Kane For Arrowverse Crossover/Potential Series

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the CW Network and Greg Berlanti have signed up Ruby Rose to star as Kate Kane aka Batwoman, who will appear in the upcoming DC Arrowverse crossover event and potentially her own television series.


Batwoman first began appearing in DC Comics universe back in Detective Comics #233 in 1956, where she was originally introduced as a love interest for Batman. Since then, she’s appeared in various animated series and films, such as Batman: The Brave and the Bold back in 2008, Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman film in 2002 and Batman: Bad Blood in 2016. The modern version of the character is portrayed by Kate Kane, who was reintroduced to audiences in 2006 as a lesbian and of Jewish descent.


The premise for the potential series is as follows:

Batwoman revolves around Kate Kane, who, armed with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind, 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. But don’t call her a hero yet…in a city desperate for a saviour, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.


In May it was revealed during the CW’s upfront presentation that Batwoman would be appearing in the DC/Arrowverse crossover event, so this news about them now developing a potential Batwoman series doesn’t surprise me in the slightest. A few weeks ago it was revealed that Greg Berlanti and Caroline Dries were developing a television series around the character and this report today about Ruby Rose’s casting also states that the crossover event won’t be a backdoor pilot for the character. Ruby Rose, er, rose to fame after starring in Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black, going on to appear on the big screen there after in films such as Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, Pitch Perfect 3, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, John Wick: Chapter Two and The Meg.
