As we have previously reported, The CW is once again expanding its superhero line up of DC Comics related characters, affectionately dubbed the “Arrowverse” by fans, with a new series based on Batwoman. The series is groundbreaking as the lead character will be a lesbian. Speculation on who would play the titular character is now over as it has been announced that Ruby Rose has landed the part!

The CW has found its Batwoman, who will appear in a DC crossover event of Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl in December and then likely again in her own standalone series.

Ruby Rose, the stunning scene-stealer from Orange Is the New Black, John Wick: Chapter 2and The Meg, has been cast as the caped crusader’s female contemporary.

What’s more, the character Batwoman will be openly lesbian, the first to lead a TV show.

“Rose will be playing the Kate Kane version of the character, who, 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,” an overview from DC Comics reads.

“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.”

 Batwoman’s co-creator, Greg Rucka, has sounded off in support of Ruby’s casting as Kate Kane/Batwoman:

We have to say AGAIN we are here for this new Batwoman series and cannot wait for this year’s crossover event. Team Arrow, Team Flash, The Legends, Supergirl, and Black Lightning are finally getting some help from at least one of Gotham’s superheroes! What do you guys think of this casting news?

The nine-episode series is composed of three compelling parts – The Evidence, The Witness and The Prosecution. These stories expose difficult truths about the state of America’s deeply flawed criminal justice system, while showing when the innocent are convicted, it is not just one life that is irreparably damaged forever: families, victims of crime and trust in the system are also broken in the process. The Innocence Files is executive produced and directed by Academy Award® nominee Liz Garbus, Academy Award® winner Alex Gibney, Academy Award® winner Roger Ross Williams; with episodes also directed by Academy Award® nominee Jed Rothstein, Emmy Award® winner Andy Grieve and Sarah Dowland.

Documentaries like The Innocence Files are so needed and riveting. How many times nowadays have we heard of cases  and convictions being overturned due to new evidence. In this country you are suppose to be guilty until proven innocent, but there are so many stories where this is rarely the case. Just check out Netflix’s “When They See Us”  with The Exonerated 5 or Just Mercy starring Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx.

(P) Saturday, March 21 (9 p.m. – 10 p.m. ET/PT) Episode: All Buttoned Up

We have to say we are really rooting for all of these couples. We recently had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Dwayne and Theresa Bowe, and we are convinced Spirit is working some magic over there. This series is definitely off to a fiery start. From the looks of it Sundy and Breyon have a lot to sort through. Sundy’s stance is a bit tough, but we have to admit the infidelity on Breyon’s part seems intolerable. Multiple girlfriends?  Theresa and Spinderella seem to be bonding and relate well to each other. They definitely seem to have it more “together” than some of the other ladies involved in the show.

You all just be sure to check out “Love Goals” this Saturday night only on OWN, at 9/8 PM EST, check your local listing for showtimes.
