RUBY ROSE Comments on BATWOMAN Casting

RUBY ROSE Comments on BATWOMAN Casting

Rose wrote Tuesday on Instagram that she's "thrilled and honored" and "an emotional wreck" over the news.

The announcement that Ruby Rose will play Batwoman in The CW's Arrowverse was huge for fans and it turns out it was huge for Rose as well.

Rose revealed on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon that she found out about her role just an hour before the premiere for her new shark movie The Meg, trying to hold back tears at the event. Oh, and she also talked about making her own bat wings as a kid and growing up with actual bats, since apparently she actually is Batwoman in real life, too. And then there's the fact that Batwoman marks television's first openly gay titular superhero-and Rose herself identifies as gender fluid.

"I kept spontaneously crying, and I feel like I'm probably going to do it now", Ruby gushed. "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".




The series will add to several others from the DC Comics Universe that are now airing: most notably, Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and Black Lightning.

And Rose plans to use her new role to inspire and give children a hero they can look up to. Kate Kane is the second Batwoman in DC Comics' history, with the first being Kathy Kane, Bruce's aunt and Kate's mother. Kane is described as a highly trained street fighter with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind.

"But don't call her a hero yet", the press release continues.
