Ruby Rose to Play The CW's BATWOMAN

First appearing in The CW's DC crossover event this fall, actress Ruby Rose has been picked to play Batwoman (via THR). She will continue the role after as she'll get her own starring BATWOMAN series on the network if/when The CW green lights the currently-in-development show.

THR reports:

"The Batwoman series, which is in development with Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaires) penning the script, 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."
