Ruby Rose's Batwoman is here and looks badass in a new photo for The CW's upcoming Arrowverse crossover.
The network released a first look at the actress in her Batwoman costume Tuesday, showing off a comic-accurate take on Kate Kane's black and red suit designed by Oscar winner Colleen Atwood.

. She'll appear in the crossover event that covers The CW's current Arrowverse shows. A Batwoman show is also in development with The Vampire Diaries' Caroline Dries writing the script.
The Arrowverse crossover begins filming next week, according to ET Online, and will begin airing Sunday, Dec. 9 at 8 p.m. on The Flash. Called Elseworlds, this year the crossover will "only" be between Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl as their attention turns to Arkham Asylum and its madness.
After her introduction in Elseworlds, the plan is for Batwoman to transition to her own standalone CW show for the 2019 fall TV season. If it airs as planned, the show will be the first live-action superhero show to feature a gay lead character.
