Ruby Rose took to social media to unveil the first look of herself as Batwoman.
The actress is set to play the role of Batwoman for The CW’s huge crossover event of their shows, “The Flash,” “Arrow,” “Legends of Tomorrow,” and “Supergirl” on December 8.
For those who may be unfamiliar…
Kate Kane is armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, she soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence.
When Ruby landed the role, she took to social media and gushed:
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.
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.
Thank you everyone. Thank you God.
She later quit Twitter after receiving an overwhelming amount of backlash over the role and she has limited who can comment on her Instagram posts.
I’m here for it. How about you?
