BATWOMAN has found its Kate Kane in Ruby Rose!
First we received word that Batwoman would be coming to the DC TV universe’s annual crossover event, then news quickly followed that super producer Greg Berlanti was developing a show solely for the character. Now, the character has finally been cast!
Ruby Rose (Orange Is The New Black, Pitch Perfect 3) will join the Arrowverse as Kate Kane, according to THR. This famed take on the famed Caped Crusader’s legacy is Jewish and an out lesbian. The character is a fighter who’s a bit theatrical, but she uses her skills to get justice for the people of Gotham.
Kate Kane will be featured in the crossover no matter what, but should the Batwoman show be picked up, the character will be the first lesbian superhero to lead her own show.
