CW Orders Pilot of Ruby Rose as Batwoman

It’s official: we’re getting a Ruby Rose Batwoman stand-alone series.

CW ordered the pilot on Thursday with David Nutter, who directed ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Arrow,’ and ‘The Flash,’ as the director. Batwoman will be the first-ever superhero series to be led by a lesbian character and played by an openly gay actress with Rose.

Here’s The CW’s official description: Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane [Rose] 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.”
