Ruby Rose to Play Batwoman for The CW

As TVLine reported, producers were seeking an out lesbian actress to play the role, and they succeeded; Rose came out as a lesbian at the age of 12.

The Arrowverse already features several significant LGBTQ characters, from Legends of Tomorrow's Sara Lance to Arrow's Curtis Holt to Supergirl's Alex Danvers. Following an upcoming crossover, Rose's Batwoman will join their ranks. Rose rose to fame after joining the cast of Netflix's Orange is the New Black in season 3 as Stella Carlin, and has had stand-out movie performances in Pitch Perfect 3, XXX: The Return of Xander Cage and John Wick: Chapter 2 (where she had a rather intense fight scene with Keanu Reeves that bodes well for battling crime on the streets of Gotham). She's set to star alongside Jason Statham in this weekend's giant shark flick The Meg.

With Rose's casting, The CW further cements its reputation for diverse characters and actors.

In a casting description for Batwoman, Kate Kane is described as proudly openly gay and having once aspired to have a successful military career, dreams that were snuffed when she was kicked out of West Point for coming out.

Gotham's symbol of hope is ready to take the spotlight. Chances are this will go to series, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, Batwoman will get their own full-length pilot and won't get a backdoor pilot in the crossover. "We'll do a pilot for mid-season [and] whether it goes to series, I can not tell you". "We have five [DC shows] on the air and just added a sixth night". Joining Dries in the EP role are Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Geoff Johns, the latter of which recently stepped down as the head of DC Entertainment.
