The character of Batwoman, that was just recently played by Ruby Rose in the ‘Elseworlds’ crossover on the CW network, will be appearing once again on her own for a pilot. As of yet there is no word on whether or not the show will be picked up for more episodes.
This past December, DC fans were treated to the first, live action portrayal of Batwoman during a television crossover that had Supergirl, Arrow, and The Flash shows collaborate to bring down the superpowered character known as The Monitor.
Ruby Rose’s portrayal of the red-headed crime fighter was a welcome addition to the story – so much so that the network wants to see if the show has legs to run in its own pocket of the Arrowverse.
As of right now, reports indicate that the pilot will be overlooked by showrunner Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries) with well known Arrowverse producer Greg Berlanti filling in once again as executive producer for a DC show. David Nutter, who has directed pilots for other shows (most notably the Game of Thrones pilot) will be directing Batwoman’s debut episode.
As for what the network thinks about Batwoman, they released a short blurb describing the character and what we can expect when, hopefully, the show airs soon:
“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,”
As for what the actress herself, Ruby Rose had this to say shortly before the crossover premiered:
“She is more fun because she’s a billionaire, she has ladies that love her. I think, for the most part, crossover-wise, she’s swaggy. She always knew who she was, but she’s really coming into knowing who she is in the crossover, and with Batwoman as well. It’s not the first time she’s put on the suit.”
With that said, we here at DCN can’t wait to see what the future has in store for Ruby Rose as Batwoman and we really hope we have a lot of really great episodes to look forward to in the future.
