The CW released the first official look at Ruby Rose as Kate Kane/Batwoman today and DC fans have taken to the internet to share their reaction to the hero set to make her Arrowverse debut this December.
Batwoman will appear in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover, "Elseworlds", featuring Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl. The crossover will see the heroes of those shows heading to Gotham City to team up with Batwoman after a bit of mad science at Arkham Asylum gets the attention of heroes from all over the multiverse.
In addition to the introduction of Batwoman, this year's crossover will be different from previous years in that other current Arrowverse show, Legends of Tomorrow, will sit things out. However, as a Batwoman pilot featuring Rose in the titular role is currently in development, "Elseworlds" may well serve as a preview of what's to come.
In comics, Batwoman first appeared in the Silver Age, but the current version was introduced during 2006's 52 and is Jewish, lesbian, and former military with a complex relationship with both her occasionally evil father and the other major Bat-hero in Gotham -- Batman.
As for this first look at Rose as Batwoman, production on the crossover begins today so this gives fans an official look as opposed to those taken by set spies who often try to get sneak peeks. And, as you might guess, the image has gotten a lot of reactions with many fans loving Rose's look while others are a little less excited.
