On Tuesday afternoon, The Gulf Coast CW received an email from their Affiliate Relations & Marketing Manager in Burbank, CA. The email contained one of the very first photos of The CW’s newest superhero in costume: Ruby Rose as Batwoman.
The former star of Orange Is The New Black will play the first-ever openly lesbian CW superhero. She’ll debut as Batwoman on Dec. 9 during the CW Network’s annual DC crossover event, which is centered around the Arrow-verse.
Already, rumors have begun to surface regarding plans to create a stand-alone series with the new DC character: Kate Kane, an out lesbian who speaks her mind passionately, turns out to also be a highly-trained street fighter who soars the streets of Gotham. Whoa!
Be sure to mark your calendar for December, 9th so you don’t miss this year’s big CW Crossover event!
