The CW is moving forward with the “Batwoman” series and the network has cast a dynamite lady to take the titular role. Ruby Rose will pick up the iconic suit and take the lead in the series, which does not have a premiere date at this time.
The CW will introduce the character slowly, first having Batwoman appear on the CW’s DC Arrowverse crossover event this December. If everything goes according to plan, Rose will then play Batwoman in a standalone series next season.
Rose has quite a background across a wide-array of genres and outlets but most fans probably know her from her work on “Orange is the new Black” and her work in “xXx: Return of Xander Cage”. You can also catch her in the soon to be released shark-thriller “The Meg”.
Rose is also one of the predominant actors that supports equal LGBTQ+ rights, something that will be a big part of the Batwoman series. Should Batwoman hit the small screen in her own series, she will be DC’s first gay lead-character in a live-action series. Batwoman was established as a gay character in the DC comics back in 2006 and the show will continue that story line. The script will be written by Caroline Dries.
As we mentioned earlier, Ruby Rose is featured in the upcoming movie “The Meg” which hits theaters this weekend. The shark-thriller was directed by Jon Turteltaub and the screenplay was written by Dean Georgaris and Jon Hoeber. The film stars Jason Statham, and also stars Bingbing Li, Rainn Wilson, and Cliff Curtis.
The CW stopped short of announcing any other possible cast members for the possible Batwoman series and we won’t know a release window for a few more weeks. “Batwoman” will live alongside her other DC heroes on the CW. “Arrow” and “The Flash” have quickly become one of the most popular series on the network since their debut and “Supergirl” made a successful jump from CBS to the Supergirl to follow her DC comrades.
