There were a lot of mixed feelings when Ruby Rose was cast as Kate Kane a.k.a. Batwoman by DC and The CW. Now we’ve got our first look at her in the role in full costume and I think she looks pretty damn cool! The character design comes right out of the comic books, so it looks just perfect.
Ruby Rose will make her debut as Batwoman in the upcoming DC crossover event series on The CW. That will then lead into a solo series that is being written and produced by Caroline Dries who has worked on series such as The Vampire Diaries and Melrose Place. She was also a writer on Smallville.
In the series, Kate Kane, armed with a passion for social justice and a 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 savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.
If the show gets picked up, it would premiere during the 2019-2020 season.
