Ruby Rose is officially Batwoman.

The Australian model, actor, and DJ, who is best known (at least to me) for starring in John Wick: Chapter 2, has been cast as Kate Kane/Batwoman in the Arrowverse reports Variety.

Rose will make her first appearance as the character in the upcoming annual crossover. In addition, a spinoff series centered on Batwoman is also in the works, which, if picked up, would debut in the 2019-20 TV season.

As previously reported, here’s the description for the potential series:

In the series, Kate Kane, armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, 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.

Are you happy with this casting? Think Rose will do the role justice? Who did you want to see step under the cowl?
