Actress Ruby Rose is suiting up to play Batwoman in The CW's annual crossover special featuring characters from the network's other DC Comics shows.

Ruby's Batwoman will be an out and proud lesbian, aka Kate Kane, who fights crime and social injustice in Gotham City.

An out lesbian, headstrong activist, and fighter with a Liam Neeson-style set of special skills, Kate is poised to serve as Gotham City's protector and symbol of peace. Rose will first appear as Batwoman in the annual DC superhero crossover event as well as the Batwoman series that is now in development from producer Greg Berlanti.

Ruby Rose has been cast as "Batwoman" to appear in The CW's DC Crossover Event in December.

Rose pursued a career in acting from 2008 onwards, with her debut performance in the Australian film Suite for Fleur. Because we couldn't ask for anything better than to see Rose star as Batwoman in a solo CW series. In short, along with the comics-based Riverdale, they basically own CW's prime-time lineup. She will first make an appearance during a crossover episode.

As a spin-off, Miss Rose has her own stand-alone series planned playing Kate Kane, but before you get too excited the show won't be aired until 2019. If the project goes to series, Batwoman will become the first gay lead character - male or female - of a live-action superhero series.

Rucka, who in 2006 helped to introduce this version of Batwoman before writing her adventures in Detective Comics, tweeted, "Not that anyone asked me, nor does it matter, but I quite like Ruby Rose". But don't call her a hero yet.

For our part, we think Rose could crush it as Batwoman. Batwoman took over the stewardship of Gotham City during a storyline that took Batman off to another galaxy and out of his beloved city. I'm also an emotional wreck. because this is a childhood dream, ' wrote the Orange Is The New Black star on her Instagram.
