Ruby Rose made her debut as Batwoman in the annual CW Crossover series and it looks like she’s here to stay.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a pilot for Rose’s Kate Kane has been ordered by CW, making way for her stand-alone series.
The series will be helmed by David Nutter, who has several big series under his belts like Game of Thrones, Arrow and The Flash.
CW released a statement describing the show, saying, “Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane [Rose] soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”
Upon being cast as Batwoman, Ruby Rose ended up quitting Twitter after facing harassment and bullying by many. We do find it interesting that a lot of the haters seemed to not know that Batwoman is a different character from Batman.
Kate Kane is Bruce Wayne’s cousin who joins the Bat-family and is trusted by Batman to look after Gotham when he is away with the Justice League. She takes up the mantle after her mother Kathy Kane, who was the first Batwoman in DC comics history in 1956. So she’s been around for a long while.
For now, there is no release date for the series.
