The CW made it official on Tuesday that it has chosen Australian actress Ruby Rose to portray its Batwoman.
Best known to U.S. audiences for her parts in John Wick Chapter 2 and Orange is the New Black, Rose has a long entertainment career. She has appeared in several films and TV programs, starting her career as an MTV VJ in her homeland of Australia.
The CW had announced it was looking for an out actress to play the lesbian Kate Kane/Batwoman, and Rose has been so since the age of 12.
The plan currently calls for Batwoman to make her debut during the annual crossover event of The CW shows. Should she prove popular the network has already stated it plans to move forward with her own series.
To be honest, I think the series is a lock at this point. People will have to actively hate her by the truckloads for this series to not move forward.
