Ruby Rose (Orange Is The New Black) has joined Arrowverse. The actress has been tapped to play lesbian superhero, Batwoman aka Kate Kane on this year's DC crossover event on the CW.
Exec producer Greg Berlanti is also developing a potential stand-alone series for the DC superhero.
Here's how the network is describing the character:
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. 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.
