Ruby Rose unveiled as Batwoman: First image has fans swooning

Rose is set to make her first appearance as Kane in upcoming Arrow-verse crossover event "Elseworlds", which will begin later in the current Season 7 of Arrow on 9 December, and continue through The Flash and Supergirl. That new suit, by the way, was created by award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood, and feels in line with the style of Thunder's suit on Black Lightning more than other female fight garb in the Arrowverse (which, at least for the Canaries, tend to feature a ton of cleavage - although the hair is all Canary). Once established, Batwoman will receive her own standalone series overseen by Greg Berlanti, and scripted by Caroline Dries.

Ruby Rose, 32, steps into the legendary Batwoman suit easily.

The first look at The CW's Batwoman is here.




Superman Joins the Arrowverse Crossover!

All these Metropolis and Gotham personalities showing up, along with that title "Elseworlds" makes us think that, unlike previous crossover events which took place mainly on "Earth 1" where most of the Arrowverse denizens we know and love reside, this one might take the show, or shows, on the road over to Supergirl's Earth 38.

"Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane 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", reads the show's official synopsis. It will also be nice to spread the heroes out more evenly across the multiverse. She was reintroduced and re-imagined in 2006 in DC's "New 52" as a lesbian.
