The series would debut in 2019. I'm also an emotional wreck. because this is a childhood dream, ' wrote the Orange Is The New Black star on her Instagram. In the post-Crisis comics, Kate Kane is a Jewish LBGTQ character - one of the first openly gay personas in the DC universe. The news of Ruby Rose's casting was confirmed by the official Arrow Twitter account, which posted an image of the actress alongside the titular hero she's set to play. The show will follow her journey as an out lesbian and vigilante snuffing out the resurgence of criminals in Gotham, but that doesn't mean you should call her a hero just yet.

The "crossover" event will see Rose's Batwoman team up with Green Arrow (Stephen Amell), The Flash (Grant Gustin), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and the DC Legends, potentially including Atom (Brandon Routh), White Canary (Cathy Loitz), Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) and John Constantine (Matt Ryan). "For the very first time appearing, we'll be fighting alongside Batwoman, which is terrific". First things first: she's not Batgirl. Wertham used Batman and Robin, a man and a boy who run around in tights together, as an example of the homosexuality in comics. Kathy created the persona of Batwoman to win the Caped Crusader's affection. The solo series, by writer Greg Rucka and artist J. H. Williams III received much critical acclaim, and was one of the most high-profile LGBTQ characters in comics. She would reappear in the '70s but was eventually killed off for good. However, Kate still deals with her inner demons that go back to her history with her dad. This version is named Kate Kane, a tough-as-nails former military school student, and is actually Bruce Wayne's cousin on his mother's side. On film, Batwoman appeared in Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman, voiced by Kyra Sedgwick, a 2002 direct-to-video animated film based on animated series The New Batman Adventures.

Plans are also afoot to give Kane/Batwoman a series of her own.
