BATWOMAN Will Be Played By ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK And THE MEG Actress Ruby Rose

The CW has announced that Ruby Rose (Orange is the New Black, The Meg) will play Kate Kane in the annual DC Arrowverse crossover event before reprising the role for her solo series. More past the jump...

We've been waiting to find out who would be playing Batwoman ever since The CW announced that the character would be joining The Arrowverse, and it's just been revealed that Ruby Rose has been cast in the role.

In what is being viewed as a big casting coup for the network, Rose (John Wick: Chapter 2, The Meg, Pitch Perfect 3) will debut as Batwoman in the annual DC crossover event this winter, before going on to star in her own solo adventure.

The CW has already stated that they were searching for an LGBT actress to play the openly gay superhero, and Rose — who identifies as gender fluid — had actually been a big fan-favorite pick for the role.

Though it hasn't been officially greenlit yet, the prospective Batwoman series will be written by Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries), who will also executive produce alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Geoff Johns.

So, what do you guys make of this casting news? Drop us a comment in the usual place.
