Ruby Rose will be donning the legendary cowl of Batwoman on the CW, TV Line reports. The DC Comics character is set to make her debut during this year's Arrowverse crossover event, which was announced in May. The character is described as a hero with a flair for social justice who isn't afraid to speak her mind, something Rose is very familiar with as a vocal advocate for LGBT rights. That and "highly trained street fighter" seem pretty in line with Rose's badass on-screen persona (have you seenxXx: Return of Xander Cage??). Dries executive produces alongside Berlanti Prods.' Berlanti and Sarah Schechter as well as former DC Entertainment president Geoff Johns via his new Mad Ghost Productions banner. The solo series, by writer Greg Rucka and artist J. H. Williams III received much critical acclaim, and was one of the most high-profile LGBTQ characters in comics. The Arrowverse crossover is expected to kick off sometime in December.
The announcement comes after the network said it was searching for an openly lesbian actress to play Batwoman, whose real name is Kara Kane and who fights crime on the streets of Gotham.
Kane, a cousin of Bruce Wayne, also targets Gotham city's criminal underbelly.

Australian film star Ruby Rose will be suiting up as the DC hero Batwoman for the USA network The CW, Variety has learned. But don't call her hero yet. The crossover events began with "Flash vs. Arrow" in 2014 and the last multi-show storyline "Crisis on Earth-X" premiered previous year. She next appears in The Meg. In fact, Batwoman was one of the most popular books of the early New 52 era before the creative team of W. Haden Blackman and J.H. Williams III left the book after DC refused to let Batwoman marry Maggie Sawyer.
With such a long career in comics, Batwoman will certainly make a great addition to the Arrowverse as the DC TV universe prepares to explore Gotham City. After all, she still has her own demons to face.
This is a logical move for both Ruby Rose and The CW.
