  • Ruby Rose Calls Batwoman Casting'A Childhood Dream

News of Ruby Rose's Batwoman role follows hot on the heels of the casting of transgender actress Nicole Maines, to play transgender superheroine Nia Nal, a.k.a. Dreamer, in another DC Comics show, Supergirl.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Rose revealed that she got emotional when she found out she had been cast as the superhero.

In case you missed it yesterday, Ruby Rose has been cast as Batwoman in a standalone TV series set to debut on the CW in 2019. In her Batwoman persona she patrols the streets of Gotham City, eager to fight crime and to confront her own demons.


"I kept spontaneously crying, and I feel like I'm probably going to do it now", Ruby gushed. While those shows heavily feature LGBT characters, Rose, who identifies as a lesbian, will be the first openly gay hero to headline a series.

While many people are happy about the CW bringing a lesbian superhero to television, but many in the Arrow-verse fandom aren't sold on the idea of Rose in the role quite yet. Rose identifies as gender fluid and is best known for her roles in "Orange Is the New Black", "Pitch Perfect 3", and "John Wick: Chapter 2". "I said I wouldn't do that!" She and Fallon then shared a moment of glee as they imagined how fun it will be for her to visit kids in hospitals dressed as Batwoman. "I'm also an emotional wreck because this is a childhood dream", she wrote. Kate Kane is the second Batwoman in DC Comics' history, with the first being Kathy Kane, Bruce's aunt and Kate's mother.

The logline qualifies: 'But don't call her a hero yet.
