Ruby Rose to lead live-action DC superhero spinoff series

Ruby Rose continues to find success on both the small screen and the big screen.

5 Jan – In early December 2018, Ruby Rose made her debut as Batwoman in three CW series as part of its annual Arrow-verse crossover.

The 32-year-old Australian actress isn't hanging up her cowl just yet, however, since The CW TV Network has given a pilot order for a spinoff series starring the eponymous masked vigilante, according to Deadline.

"Batwoman" will see the actress reprising the superhero role she first played in the three-part episode, "Elseworlds" ("The Flash" Part 1, "Arrow" Part 2, "Supergirl" Part 3).

"Game of Thrones" helmer David Nutter will be directing the pilot.

If the pilot is a success, the actress will be headlining the series on the CW next season.

When it was announced last summer that Ruby Rose would be playing Batwoman, the response hadn't exactly been positive overall. The actress was even forced to quit Twitter due to the backlash.

However, after her appearance in the crossover specials, fans seem to have warmed up to the idea of the actress as the superhero.

Batwoman a.k.a. Kate Kane will be the first openly gay lead character for a live-action superhero series. The official description of the series describes her as a highly trained street fighter who is "armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind".

Aside from the small screen, Ruby Rose will also be seen on the big screen this year in "John Wick 3: Parabellum", reprising her role as Ares opposite Keanu Reeves.
