The CW is now developing a Batwoman solo series written by Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries), who is also executive producing alongside Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns, and Arrowverse mastermind Greg Berlanti.

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

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.

More as it fires in.

If her introduction goes over well, Rose could next headline her own series as the Gotham vigilante.

Rose pursued a career in acting from 2008 onwards, with her debut performance in the Australian film Suite for Fleur.

The CW can put the Bat-signal away: its new Batwoman is on the scene. First things first: she's not Batgirl.

Ruby Rose Cast as 'Batwoman' - Lesbian Superhero on The CW

The series will see Batwoman's alter ego Kate Kane portrayed as a lesbian, and is expected to air in late 2019/early 2020.

Ruby has signed up to play the street-fighting superhero for the new CW series.

CW is pulling out some big guns for their possible upcoming Batwoman TV show. However, the character was re-introduced in 2006 as a lesbian and hero in her own right separate from Batman, becoming DC Comics' most high-profile canonically gay character to date. Many more have shared their excitement about the CW's choice to cast an openly gay woman like Rose to play the openly gay superhero. Congratulations to all Jewish bats, lesbians, and Ruby Rose lovers! "We'll do a pilot for mid-season [and] whether it goes to series, I can not tell you".

With such a long career in comics, Batwoman will certainly make a great addition to the Arrowverse as the DC TV universe prepares to explore Gotham City.

Still riding high after her memorable turn in The Meg and John Wick: Chapter Two, Rose is perhaps the flawless candidate to play Gotham's newfound protector, given she prides herself as a prominent member of the LGBTQ community.

Before Batwoman becomes a reality for Rose, she'll next be seen in Jason Statham's new shark movie The Meg, which hits USA cinemas this weekend.
