They've just announced that Ruby Rose, of Orange is the New Black fame, is donning the cape and cowl of the titular superhero.

But first, Rose will make her debut in this year's DC crossover event in December, which will include Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl (but not DC's Legends of Tomorrow). But don't call her hero yet.

We can expect to see Ruby kicking ass as Batwoman is in the 2019-20 television season!

The Arrowverse now has its Batwoman as Ruby Rose has been cast as the Gotham City crime fighter set to first appear in the upcoming annual crossover.

DC Comics shares more about the Kate Kane/Batwoman character who Rose will be playing in the crossover, and most likely, in the highly anticipated Batwoman series.

The CW released a short video that teases the arrival of Batwoman to the Arrowverse.

Ruby Rose will be The CW's Batwoman.

Batwoman has been openly gay in the comic books since 2006 when she was reintroduced as a lesbian of Jewish descent who found a love interest in former Gotham police detective Renee Montoya.

Rose, who previously starred in Orange Is the New Black, will then transition into her own Batwoman series, which is now in development for the 2019-2020 television season. In an effort to quell parents concerns at the time, DC Comics created Batwoman.

Unlike Kathy, who was mostly featured in books alongside other members of the Bat Family, Kate has enjoyed some memorable solo runs.

She emerged in the media spotlight as a presenter on MTV Australia, followed by several high-profile modelling gigs, notably as the face of Maybelline New York in Australia. It's written by Marguerite Bennett, with pencils by Fernando Blanco, Steve Epting, and Stephanie Hans. Batwoman took over the stewardship of Gotham City during a storyline that took Batman off to another galaxy and out of his beloved city.
