Here’s Your First Look at Ruby Rose as Batwoman
The CW had released a first look at the former Orange is the New Black star as the Gotham vigilante.
In the promotional image, you can see Ruby Rose donning the superhero costume for Batwoman with her iconic red hair and the Bat-signal lit into the Gotham night sky.
The Batwoman costume had been designed by Academy Award-winning designer Colleen Atwood, who had previously designed the superhero costumes on Arrowverse television shows such as Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl.
Rose will make her debut as Batwoman in the third annual Arrowverse crossover on The CW which will air on December 9th, 2018. The three-night crossover entitled “Elseworlds” will include Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will be stepping out from the crossover this year.
