Now that we're beginning to grow accustomed to the news that Ruby Rose is our new Batwoman, BossLogic has rendered another comic book-themed piece that imagines the Orange is the New Black starlet as Kate Kane. If ordered to series by The CW, Batwoman would join Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl and Black Lightning on the network's slate of DC-based shows. "In a city desperate for a savoir, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope".
Ruby Rose has revealed that she been cast as Batwoman for an upcoming TV series in which the superhero will be the first openly lesbian hero on screens.
Fans were excited about the crossover event after a "Heroes and Villains" trailer was released at San Diego Comic-Con in July.
This Batwoman casting isn't the only time The CW has made waves in the LGBTQ communities recently though.
While those shows feature many LGBT characters, Rose's Batwoman will be the first to lead a series.
In addition to the crossover, Rose will presumably star in a standalone series now in the works at the CW. As the Batwoman creators wanted for the role, Ruby is an out lesbian, who also considers herself gender fluid. Other writers, such as Grant Morrison, have reimagined her in the years since. Congratulations to all Jewish bats, lesbians, and Ruby Rose lovers!
Plans are also afoot to give Kane/Batwoman a series of her own.
The DC shows air on Sky in New Zealand. It's written by Marguerite Bennett, with pencils by Fernando Blanco, Steve Epting, and Stephanie Hans. Kane is a wealthy heiress who becomes inspired by Batman and chooses to also put her wealth and resources towards a campaign to fight crime as a masked vigilante in her home of Gotham City.
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.
