Variety reports that Ruby Rose has been brought on board to play Kate Kane, Bruce Wayne's cousin who becomes a part of the Bat family and is trusted by Batman to look after Gotham when he has League business.

"I feel like the reason I get so emotional, growing up watching TV, I never saw somebody on TV that I could identify with, let alone a superhero", Rose said through a cracking voice.
CW's Kate Kane, with Ruby Rose, will be DC's first LGBTQ character to make an on-screen debut and not be straight-washed.
The logline qualifies: 'But don't call her a hero yet. From there she had roles in films like "XXX" Return of Xander Cage" and "John Wick: "Chapter 2". "In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope".More news: Manchester United target Yerry Mina undergoes Everton medical in Barcelona
