Stephen Amell Reveals How the Arrowverse Crossover Begins

This first look at Batwoman comes as the crossover begins shooting in Vancouver BC. The crossover is also scrambling up the regularly scheduled programming by swapping around the dates these series usually air - Flash will take over Supergirl's Sunday slot to kick things off, moving on to Arrow on Monday, and then Supergirl on Tuesday. With the signature cowl and cape designed by four-time Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood, Rose is ready to make her Arrowverse debut as Batwoman (aka Kate Kane).

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.

Rose's Batwoman will be different from previous versions in popular culture, as her iteration will be an out lesbian. If the project went to series, Batwoman would be the first gay lead character in a live-action superhero TV show. But don't call her a hero yet.

We've known for a while now that Ruby Rose would be heading to Gotham this winter as the CW's very own Batwoman. "This is something I would have died to have seen on TV when I was a young member of the LGBT community who never felt represented on TV and felt alone and different". Not only is the three night event travelling to Gotham City and introducing Ruby Rose as Batwoman, but the aptly-titled Elseworlds will also include characters like Superman, Nora Fries, Lois Lane, and The Monitor.
