A full-fledged "Batwoman" series is also now in development.
Batwoman will be armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind.
Batwoman returned as a character in DC Comics in 2006. Batwoman! The big event is planned for December, while the Batwoman standalone series is slated to premiere in 2019. The plan is reportedly for Rose to not only appear in the Arrowverse crossover, but also get her own full-length "Batwoman" pilot, rather than the crossover simply serving as a backdoor pilot (the trajectory is similar to what happened when the network introduced "The Flash").
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. The CW has officially cast the Orange is the New Black actress as their latest caped hero.
'But don't call her a hero yet.
Rose's previous credits include Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, John Wick: Chapter 2 and Pitch Perfect 3.
If you haven't seen Rose in anything she's usually playing a badass of some sort because she is a badass of some sort. She also starred in the film, which became a viral hit, and was awarded with the Stephen F. Kolzak Award at the 2016 GLAAD Media Awards. In addition to being an out lesbian, Kate Kane is a highly trained street fighter who must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be the city's symbol of hope. And while details are still relatively slim about how Kate Kane will make her grand entrance into the Arrowverse, this casting shows that it's being set in motion. She once aspired to have a successful military career, but those dreams sadly came to an end as she was kicked out of West Point once she came out of the closet. I'd personally like something more akin to Arrow than Supergirl, but with Rose taking the lead I'm pretty much up for anything now. We're looking forward to seeing what Ruby Rose can do with this beloved character!
