Supergirl star Melissa Benoist takes to Instagram to offer a first look at Ruby Rose as Batwoman for the upcoming Arrowverse Elseworlds crossover.
Ruby Rose’s Batwoman is a part of the Supergirl universe, with the Elseworlds crossover also set to introduce Gotham City to the Arrowverse.
Batwoman Kate Kane is described as: Armed with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind, 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.
The CW may also develop a Batwoman spinoff series.
The Elseworlds crossover also stars Stepphen Amell, Grant Gustin, Tyler Hoechlin as Superman and introduces Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, Cassandra Jean Amell as Nora Fries, Jeremy Davies has been cast in the role of Dr. John Deegan, a doctor at Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane who might be crazier than the inmates he treats, LaMonica Garret is playing The Monitor, an extraterrestrial being of infinite power, with John Wesley Shipp reprising his 90s Flash role.
The three-night Arrowverse crossover airs Sunday, Dec. 9 with The Flash, followed by Monday, Dec. 10 with Arrow, and concludes Tuesday, Dec. 11 with Supergirl.
