Ruby Rose has been cast as Kate Kane, also known as Batwoman, Variety officially reported this morning. Rose is best known for her roles in Orange Is The New Black and John Wick: Chapter 2.
Batwoman revolves around Kate Kane, who, armed with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind, soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet: in a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.
Batwoman is coming this fall on The CW!
