'Batwoman' Teaser Shows Lesbian Superhero Guarding Over Gotham City

The CW announced it was picking up the show, making Ruby Rose's character the first openly queer superhero in the title role of a live-action series.

It’ll fly.

The CW announced Tuesday it was picking up the “Batwoman” series and promptly released a moody teaser.

Batwoman, played by Ruby Rose, stands sentry over Gotham City as the moon glows and her cape flutters in the wind.

It’s dark ― not just the vibe but the actual clip. The network wasn’t about to give up too much because curiosity is already high.

“Batwoman” will make history as the first superhero live-action TV series to feature a gay or lesbian title character, according to reports.

Rose, the former “Orange Is the New Black” star who identifies as gender fluid, got the “Batwoman” role last summer and appeared in the Arrowverse crossover event “Elseworlds,” Deadline reported.

In the series, Batwoman will be fighting crime in Gotham about three years after Batman has disappeared, according to The Wrap.
