Rose's casting comes after recent reports indicated that the network had made a priority of casting an openly gay actress to play Batwoman.

Her character is described in a CW release as a "highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city's criminal resurgence". The Australian actress has landed the coveted, titular role role in Batwoman, which The CW is developing as a standalone series.

The CW announced that Rose will make her first appearance as Kate Kane in the Crossover Event, which will incorporate all four of the shows in the Arrow-verse, namely The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow.

Ruby Rose has been tapped to play Kate Kane/Batwoman, the first openly lesbian superhero on television, for The CW's Batwoman.

Rose, a genderfluid lesbian and activist for the LBGTQ community, wrote, produced, and starred in the short film Break Free. As in comics, television's Batwoman will also have to face many of her own personal demons even as she suits up as Gotham's symbol of hope and justice. Rose was awarded with the Stephen F. Kolzak Award at the 2016 GLAAD Media Awards, which is presented to an LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality and acceptance. Johns also has been producing the long-gestating Batgirl DC feature at Warner Bros., which switched writers this past spring. She went on to appear in films like "Resident Evil: The Final Chapter", "xXx: Return of Xander Cage", "John Wick: Chapter 2", and "Pitch Perfect 3". The character was first introduced in Detective Comics in 1956 and was reimagined for DC Comics' New 52 as a Jewish lesbian.

So let's cross our fingers that Rose's debut in the Arrowverse crossover event will be a success! The CW is now developing a Batwoman solo series written by Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries), who is also executive producing alongside Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns, and Arrowverse mastermind Greg Berlanti.

According to CW president Mark Pedowitz, the Batwoman pilot is aimed for mid-season, although it is unclear on whether or not it will get picked up for a full series.
