First look at Ruby Rose as lesbian superhero Batwoman

The CW has unveiled the first official image of Ruby Rose as Kate Kane, a.k.a. Batwoman, as she'll appear in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover "Elseworlds".

As the teens say these days, WIG. In 2006 she returned as Kate Kane, "an out lesbian and trained street fighter primed to snuff out [Gotham City's] criminal resurgence".

The Arrowverse crossover begins filming next week, according to ET Online, and will begin airing Sunday, Dec. 9 at 8 p.m. on The Flash.

Busy Philipps Alleges James Franco Assaulted Her On 'Freaks and Geeks'
Roger Howarth took over the part of Franco in 2013 when we learned the character committed his many crimes due to a brain tumor. I was getting ready, and I turned on the hearings right when Dr. [Christine Blasey] Ford started".

Ruby Rose is taking on the role of Kate Kane, who'll debut in the three-part event between Supergirl, Arrow, and The Flash (Legends of Tomorrow is sitting this one out) before her own spin-off potentially launches next year (The CW have ordered a pilot episode).

The network is also developing a stand-alone series around the openly gay character, too, which Rose will headline if all goes to plan.

Ever since the announcement in July that the crossover would feature Batwoman, fan excitement has been mounting around the introduction another female lead (this one who also happens to be lesbian and ginger, two things television needs more of) to Greg Berlanti's Arrowverse. But hey/ love a challenge I just wish women and the LGBT community supported each other more, My wish was we were all a little kinder and more supportive of each other... Unfortunately, some of the more negative reactions to Rose's casting were rather rude and harmful, leading to Rose ultimately deleting her Twitter account in order to avoid the negativity and hate. "I feel like the reason I get so emotional, growing up watching TV, I never saw somebody on TV that I could identify with, let alone a superhero", she said.
