A new TV Batwoman has been cast, with the part of the superheroine and her alter ego Kate Kane to be played by actress and model Ruby Rose in the CW’s Arrowverse.
Rose will appear as the character in the CW’s DC Crossover Event in December.
The CW has previously announced that a “Batwoman” series is in development for the 2019-20 season. Executive producer and writer for the series is Caroline Dries, with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns aboard as executive producers. The series comes from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
The CW’s logline for the new series reads: “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. 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. Based on the characters from DC.”
