Never going to happen. We should be happy that we're getting Batman in Titans.

Ruby Rose to Play Lesbian Superhero Batwoman for The CW



The CW has cast its Batwoman.

Out actress Ruby Rose has been tapped to play the lesbian superhero for the network. Rose's Batwoman will first appear in the December DC crossover event, with Arrow-verse mastermind Greg Berlanti plotting a stand-alone series revolving around the character.

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

Should Batwoman move to series, it would join a slate of DC shows at The CW that includes Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and Black Lightning as Berlanti also builds a roster of DC fare on the comic book powerhouse's forthcoming DC Universe subscription digital platform. Set to launch next month, that platform will feature scripted originals including Titans, Doom Patrol and more.

Rose's casting comes after the network made it a priority to cast an openly gay actress to take on the role. Rose's credits include Netflix's Orange Is the New Black and features The Meg, Pitch Perfect 3 and John Wick: Chapter 2. Rose, also a model and recording artist — and former MTV VJ — is repped by UTA, Art2perform and Hirsch Wallerstein.

With the casting, The CW's superhero stable now includes an out lesbian superhero played by a lesbian actress as well as a trans actress playing a trans superhero, with activist Nicole Maines joining Supergirl as a series regular next season.

When a man's heart is full of deceit,
it burns up, dies, and a dark shadow falls over his soul.

From the ashes of a once great man has risen a curse,
a wrong that must be righted.

Re: CW developing Batwoman series

Works for me, makes sense to have an LGBTQ+ person playing the character. Just hope they get the costume and the red wig looking good and not a shitty "re-imagining" like they often do with these things.

If you'd read the comic books you'd realise how dumb this statement is. What they're describing is EXACTLY how the comic book character is portrayed.

I REALLY hope we get some Renee Montoya/The Question stuff in here somewhere too. Seems like it should be a no brainer but you never can tell with the TV versions of shit.

Re: CW developing Batwoman series

As much as I love the casting I have ZERO faith in the network it'll be airing on. After what they did to Arrow there's really no reason to trust them.

I have more faith that they'd get this right because it's essentially right in their wheelhouse. Doing what they usually do with their shows would actually make it just like the comic books as opposed to completely different than. I don't really like Arrow because it's not Oliver Queen as I've always known him, it's not Dinah Lance as I've always known her etc. Same goes for The Flash, it's ok but it's just not The Flash from the comic books. Out of all of the things they've adapted this is the one that seems like they could do their usual shit and actually get it right for once.
