Adjust Comment Print

The CW has unveiled the first image of Rose as Batwoman, Gotham's new street-fighting vigilante, who will make her debut in a December "Arrowverse" crossover event, spanning episodes of Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl, in advance of a standalone Bat-series.

The Colleen Atwood-designed costume is comic book accurate with the Bat symbol, cape, and Kate Kane's long cherry-red hair.

Rose, whose casting was announced in August, joins The CW's DC Comics universe in December as a bunch of other ongoing series - Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl - come together in a crossover event. While Rose is a lesbian as is Batwoman, a number of people took issue with the fact that Rose is not Jewish.

You can see the first look image below.

Rose will make her debut as Kane in Elseworlds, ahead of a planned solo series set to air in 2019.

In her real life she is Katherine (later Kate) Kane, a wealthy Gotham City heiress who, inspired by Batman's heroic deeds, created for herself a superhero alter-ego.

Whatever world we're in, it's very exciting to get a look at Batwoman as she'll appear onscreen.

Although details about the crossover are scarce, we do know a few things. "I didn't change. I wish we would all support each other and our journeys", Rose wrote in one of her last tweets, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Unfortunately, some of the more negative reactions to Rose's casting were rather rude and harmful, leading to Rose ultimately deleting her Twitter account in order to avoid the negativity and hate.
