Batwoman trailer reveals new look at Ruby Rose in the title character's full costume after the show is issued a series order by the CW

The CW Network has released a brief trailer for Batwoman, starring Ruby Rose as Kate Kane, a.k.a. Batwoman, which was given a series order earlier in May.

Rose, 33, made her debut as Batwoman in the Arrowverse crossover Elseworlds on The CW, which brought characters for Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl together.

The two-night Elseworlds crossover aired in early December, and in January, The CW issued a pilot order for Batwoman, which has since been ordered to series.

The trailer doesn't reveal too much, showing Rose's title character in her full costume, standing atop a building with her red and black cape flowing in the wind.

Her Batwoman signal light is seen briefly in the trailer, before Rose turns to the camera, showing off her blazing red hair and matching red Batwoman symbol across her chest.

There is no word yet on when the series will premiere, or when production will begin, but The CW will unveil their schedule at their annual upfront presentation on Thursday.

Ruby Rose was cast as Batwoman in August, for the Elseworlds crossover and the stand-alone series that was being developed.

The character is described as having, 'a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind,' with Kane also said to be, 'an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city's criminal resurgence.'

Kane isn't quite ready to be a hero yet, though, with the series following her overcoming her own demons, 'before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope.'

After being cast in August, Rose took to Instagram to deliver a heartfelt message to her fans and supporters.

'The Bat is out of the bag and I am beyond thrilled and honored. I'm also an emotional wreck.. because this is a childhood dream,' she began.

'This is something I would have died to have seen on TV when I was a young member of the LGBT community who never felt represented on tv and felt alone and different,' she added. 'Thank you everyone. Thank you god.'

Rose also spoke to TV Week after her casting, revealing how important the casting was to her.

'It fulfils my life mantra of, 'Be the person you needed when you were young,'' the actress said. 

'I can't speak on behalf of everyone in the LGBTIQ community, but I know any win for anyone in our community is a win for all.' 

Also starring in the Batwoman TV series is Dougray Scott as Jacob Kane, Elizabeth Anweis as Catherine Hamilton-Kane and Rachel Skarsten as Alice.
