Ruby Rose is flying into Vancouver, the location they shoot all the CW shows, today so the network is dropping our first look at her as Batwoman. Her black and red suit, designed by four-time Academy Award victor Colleen Atwood, also nods to the character's previous iterations with a classically cut cape with ruby red shading.

Rose will make her debut as the popular Gotham City hero in this year's three-night Arrowverse crossover "Elseworlds", which will include Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl. The CW is also now developing a series based around the character, whose real name is Kate Kane.

Batwoman was a watershed moment in comic book culture when she debuted in 2006 because she was one of DC's first openly gay characters. The first look photo of the actress as the iconic Batwoman debuted on October 9, and Ruby completely transforms into the role of the superhero. DC has also announced that the team-up event will introduce comics character The Monitor, a nearly-omnipotent, Multiverse-hopping entity played by Designated Survivor's LaMonica Garrett.
