Ruby Rose suits up as The CW's Batwoman in first look image

First Image of Ruby Rose as Batwoman Reveals a New Caped Crusader

The CW has just debuted the first picture of Ruby Rose in costume as Kate Kane/Batwoman for this year's Arrowverse crossover, and she looks epic.

We have two months before we'll see the full crossover, but in the meantime, let us know what you think of this Batwoman reveal and what you're hoping the "Elseworlds" story might cover.

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. It's pretty chic, which isn't surprising considering it's been designed by Oscar victor Colleen Atwood.

What are your first impressions of Rose's Batwoman look?

Whatever world we're in, it's very exciting to get a look at Batwoman as she'll appear onscreen.

After her introduction in Elseworlds, the plan is for Batwoman to transition to her own standalone CW show for the 2019 fall TV season. In addition, a Batwoman show is in development with The Vampire Diaries' Caroline Dries writing the script. The modern incarnation of Batwoman was important when she debuted in 2006 because she was one of DC Comics' first openly gay characters, and Rose will make a similar splash if the show gets picked up to series, making her the lead of the first TV series focused on an LGBT gay superhero.

Rose was announced as the new Batwoman in August to both celebration and some social media backlash. I'm also an emotional wreck. because this is a childhood dream.

The three-night DC crossover event kicks off with The Flash on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, followed by Arrow on Monday, Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT and Supergirl on Tuesday, Dec. 11 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
