Ruby Rose Suits Up In This First Look At Batwoman
The CW released the first photo of actress Ruby Rose as Batwoman. The network made the announcement earlier this summer that Rose was cast.
Batwoman is making her debut the crossover episodes of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow. The crossover begins filming this month in Vancouver. A spinoff solo series is also in the works that will be the first LGBTQ+ led superhero series.
The news of Rose getting the roll was met with a great deal of fan backlash that drove the actress off Twitter and disable comments on her Instagram account. Batwoman, aka Kate Kane, is openly gay in the DC universe. The CW no doubt wanted to cast an LGBTQ+ actress. Initial pushback from fans was that Rose wasn’t “lesbian enough” for the character.
The image is amazing and will hopefully quiet the critics that claim that Rose was the wrong choice for the role. The costume is a practically comic book accurate representation from the flowing red hair to the crimson bat emblem.
