Here’s your first look at Ruby Rose in the Batwoman costume

The CW have unveiled the first image of Ruby Rose as Batwoman.

Rose, who shot to worldwide fame after appearing as Stella on prison drama Orange Is The New Black, was announced as the woman behind the mask for The CW’s upcoming Batwoman series back in August.

The Australian actress will make her first appearance as the famed DC Comics superhero in The CW’s annual Arrowverse crossover event this December, and is expected to front a standalone Batwoman series next year.

Staying true to her depiction in the comics, Batwoman’s primary identity will be a lesbian called Kate Kane.

The show’s synopsis describes “out lesbian” Kate as having “a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind”, while her alter-ego Batwoman is a “highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence”.

But before she can become the hero that Gotham City needs, Kate has her own “demons” to overcome.
