ICYMI: Ruby Rose Is The CW's Batwoman!

Written by Kevin Donaldson. Published: August 11 2018


Not long ago, news broke out that The CW was aiming to make a Batwoman television series and people got excited. The part that got the most attention, however, was that not only did the network want to stay true to the comics with Batwoman’s homosexuality, thus making her the first onscreen LGBTQ superhero, but that they wanted to get the right representation and cast a lesbian actress. It didn’t take long for The CW to make their pick of b@d@$$ actress Ruby Rose.




Most of us got introduced to Rose with her role on “Orange is the New Black”, but since then she has really made a name for herself as an action star by garnering roles in such films as John Wick 2, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, and the newly released The Meg. Now looking to make her return to television, Rose is certainly diving back in with a bang. On top of landing the lead in “Batwoman”, she will play the title role in other Arrowverse shows “Supergirl”, “The Flash”, and, of course, “Arrow”.


“Batwoman” has no release date at this time, but it is unfortunately slated to premiere next year. There is no guarantee at this time that Rose will appearing in the other Arrowverse shows in their upcoming seasons but the chances are strong.
