Ruby Rose as Batwoman Reveled in Elseworlds Arrowverse Crossover

Adjust Comment Print

The network is now developing a stand-alone series for Batwoman and if everything goes without a hitch, we can expect to see Batwoman kicking ass on her own next year.

The "Orange Is the New Black" alum is all suited up in the first look at the Gotham City superhero, aka Kate Kane.

Let's skip the preamble.

Batwoman, also known as Kate Kane, will also be getting her own show in 2019.

Production on the crossover commences Tuesday in Vancouver.

There is a new caped crusader on the scene, and that would be The CW's Batwoman. Batwoman was originally introduced in the DC Universe in 1956 as a love interest for Batman, but she was phased out of the comics a few years later. Her black and red suit, designed by four-time Academy Award victor Colleen Atwood, also nods to the character's previous iterations with a classically cut cape with ruby red shading. The character is described as a hero with a flair for social justice who isn't afraid to speak her mind. "Crossover event December 9 at 8pm ET".

Batwoman as she appears in DC Comics. "Twitter didn't exist, but we would get boxes of letters expressing opinions in all directions from were we making enough change, should we be making more change, or why did we feel like we needed to do these things?" Called Elseworlds, this year the crossover will "only" be between Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl as their attention turns to Arkham Asylum and its madness. The event will mark the introduction of Ruby Rose as Batwoman and the first appearance of Gotham City in the Arrowverse.
