In what is, in my opinion, some of the best casting we’ve seen in a really long time- Ruby Rose (Orange is the New Black, John Wick Ch.2) has been cast as the CW’s Batwoman!
The character will be making her small screen debut on the CW’s annual Arrowverse Crossover event in December, and then move on to be the lead in a Batwoman centered new series.
It’s easy to spot the parallels between the actress and the character, as Batwoman has been a trailblazer for LGBTQ+ representation in comics and will be the first openly gay lead character in a superhero series, while Ruby herself has been open about her sexuality and gender identification throughout her career.
Yea… I’m stoked for this one.
