Ruby Rose set to star as lesbian superhero Batwoman for The CW

Batwoman a.k.a. Kate Kane is "armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind".

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. "Thank you everyone. Thank you god", she wrote. Television. Dries will executive produce alongside Berlanti and Sarah Schechter.

DC Entertainment shows on The CW have come a long way.

DC Comics shares more about the Kate Kane/Batwoman character who Rose will be playing in the crossover, and most likely, in the highly anticipated Batwoman series.

Batwoman is coming to TV and she'll be played by an Australian.

The show being developed by an American network would be the first live-action superhero series with an openly gay lead and is based on the DC Comics star Kate Kane - aka Batwoman.

Most recently, Batwoman has been one of the stars of the relaunched Detective Comics by James Tynion IV and finally has her own solo series again. The new Batwoman, who was reintroduced in the comic books in 2006, is an out lesbian.

"While she has her shield up when fighting criminals, she lets herself be vulnerable when dating women". Sounds like exactly the right fit for the groundbreaking Rose. She gained global recognition after she was cast in season three of the Netflix series Orange is the New Black. Best known for her role as Stella in Orange Is the New Black, Rose, who identifies as lesbian and genderfluid, has previously cut her ass-kicking chops in Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, xXx: Return of Xander Cage and John Wick: Chapter 2. "I am very gender fluid and feel more like I wake up every day sort of gender neutral", she said after releasing a gender-bending film. I'm pretty sure she may have secretly actually been Batwoman this entire time. I was like, five or six? "I used to pray to God that I wouldn't get breasts". Here's what you need to know about the modern, badass superhero!
