Ruby Rose will be donning the legendary cowl of Batwoman on the CW, TV Line reports.

Batwoman returned as a character in DC Comics in 2006.

News broke in July that creators of the new Batwoman series - which were hoping to cast an out gay actor in the title role. The Arrowverse crossover event will bring heroes from all of The CW's DC shows together. Indeed, Rose, with a tattoo-brandishing badass look and a character-appropriate biography, since she's openly lesbian, will embody the role of Kate Kane/Batwoman for this exciting and potentially groundbreaking CW series.

Kane, a cousin of Bruce Wayne, also targets Gotham city's criminal underbelly.

An ex-soldier who was raised by her obsessive father, Kate Kane picked up the Batwoman mantle separate from her cousin's decision to fight crime in Gotham. Rose is best known for her role as the assassin Ares in John Wick: Chapter 2, as well as for movies such as xXx: Return of Xander Cage, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, and this month's shark thriller The Meg.
