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 character will make her debut during December's crossover event between "Arrow", "The Flash" and "Supergirl", which begins filming on Tuesday in Vancouver.

Set against a dark and gritty city backdrop - with the Bat-Signal shining bright in the night sky no less - Rose stuns in this first look photo at the iconic superhero. Along with the her lesbian identity, The Hollywood Reporter points out, Kate Kane comes "armed with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind". But don't call her a hero yet. Furthermore, the epic event will also introduce the Monitor (Designated Survivor's LaMonica Garrett), a DC Comics character of multiversal importance, Lois Lane (Grimm's Elizabeth Tulloch), and Nora Fries (Cassandra Jean Amell).

In August, we learned that Ruby Rose will be The CW's Batwoman.

Rose seems to be here to stay, but her welcome to the Arrowverse was far from friendly. "I feel like the reason I get so emotional, growing up watching TV, I never saw somebody on TV that I could identify with, let alone a superhero", she said.

At least she has Arrowverse head honcho Greg Berlanti, who dismissed the backlash and described Rose as "terrific" as the superhero, on her side. Fans were incredibly excited that a queer woman was cast in the role, as Batwoman is one of the highest-profile lesbian superheroes in comics, and fans are hoping to see her sexuality represented when she heads to screens later this year.
