Kane You Believe It?!
In what seems to be classic superhero fashion these days, a new sneak peak photo of an anticipated heroine has been released and fans are freaking out. The CW published a first look at Ruby Rose as Batwoman yesterday and the costume, designed by Colleen Atwood who worked on the iconic suits that surround The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl, definitely does justice to the Gotham City vigilante’s look in the original DC Comic. Here’s a look at the epic photo:
The CW superhero will debut in this year’s Arrowverse crossover “Elseworlds”, beginning December 9th. “Elseworlds” will go on for 3 nights throughout episodes of “The Flash”, “Arrow” and “Supergirl” respectively, and while details about the network crossover are currently scarce, Entertainment Weekly’s article shares some inside information on the plot, revealing that:
“Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), Green Arrow (Stephen Amell), and the Flash (Grant Gustin) wind up traveling to Gotham City because of the machinations of Dr. John Deegan, a possibly insane Arkham Asylum doctor played by Lost’s Jeremy Davies. Furthermore, the epic event will also introduce the Monitor (Designated Survivor’s LaMonica Garrett), a DC Comics character of multiversal importance, Lois Lane (Grimm’s Elizabeth Tulloch), and Nora Fries (Cassandra Jean Amell). Tyler Hoechlin will also reprise the role of Superman.”
Once introduced into the Arrowverse, Ruby Rose will reportedly be earning a stand-alone series of her own as Kate Kane/Batwoman, which is currently in the works by executive producer Greg Berlanti. The “Orange is The New Black” actress shared her excitement about the project on Instagram with the post below, expressing her gratitude towards embodying and sharing the story of Batwoman, the first openly gay superhero to lead a TV series to-date:

The Bat is out of the bag and I am beyond thrilled and honored. I’m also an emotional wreck.. because this is a childhood dream. This is something I would have died to have seen on TV when I was a young member of the LGBT community who never felt represented on tv and felt alone and different. Thank you everyone. Thank you god.
So far fans have nothing but praise for Rose in the Batwoman gear:
