In one of the biggest casting coups for the CW, Ruby Rose has been tapped to play Batwoman. Batwoman is set to make her debut during the annual Arrowverse crossover in the fall among Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, and Supergirl. However, the character was re-introduced in 2006 as a lesbian and hero in her own right separate from Batman, becoming DC Comics' most high-profile canonically gay character to date. But don't call her a hero yet.

The series is part of a collection on The CW focusing on characters from the DC Comics universe.

Batwoman is a lesbian superhero, and The CW and Warner Bros.

While those shows feature many LGBT characters, Rose's Batwoman will be the first to lead a series.

She is the daughter of Katia Langenheim, a 20-year-old single mother and artist, whom she describes as one of her role models.

Old-time plane crashes in Swiss Alps, killing 20 on board
Twenty people died after a vintage World War II aircraft crashed into a Swiss mountainside, police said on Sunday (Aug 5). Police spokeswoman Anita Senti told reporters that it was with "sad certainty" that "the 20 people aboard perished".

Dries will also executive produce the new show alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns.

Mark Pedowitz, the president of The CW, the USA channel which airs the Arrowverse series, said a pilot episode would be filmed at the end of the year, after production on the "crossover" event was finished. But the introduction of Batwoman is groundbreaking. She would reappear in the '70s but was eventually killed off for good.

Kane, a cousin of Bruce Wayne, also targets Gotham city's criminal underbelly. But he added it had been established that Batman existed in the Arrowverse as the Green Arrow character had made reference to him previously.

Unlike Kathy, who was mostly featured in books alongside other members of the Bat Family, Kate has enjoyed some memorable solo runs. But it'll be a while before she transitions from aspiring vigilante to bonafide Batwoman, as Kate has personal demons to battle and dusty skeletons to evict from her closet.

The DC shows air on Sky in New Zealand.
