Batwoman was first introduced into the DC Extended Universe in the 1950s as Batman’s love interest.

In 2006, she was reintroduced as a lesbian of Jewish descent. Rose, who is gay, has spoken about the role being a “game-changer” for her despite criticism that the casting team assigned the role to a non-Jewish actress.

In October, The CW shared the first promotional image of Rose in her Batwoman costume, which was designed by four-time Oscar winner Colleen Atwood.

Batwoman will be broadcast on The CW, which is also home to other ongoing DC Comics-based TV series.


A synopsis for the show describes Batwoman as being “armed with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind.”
