The CW has given us our first look at Ruby Rose as Kate Kane, AKA Batwoman.
The promo image sees Rose in her full Batwoman outfit, designed by Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood ( Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Tomb Raider, Arrow, The Flash).
Batwoman will be introduced in The CW’s Arrowverse crossover between The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl, which begins filming Tuesday, October 9 in Vancouver. The crossover will kick off with a special episode of The Flash on December 9, 8:00 pm ET. The CW has also announced that Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) will appear in all three episodes, alongside Lois Lane.
A spinoff Batwoman series is also in development, which Rose will headline next year if it’s picked up. The logline for the potential Batwoman series is as follows: “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.”
