Ruby Rose Speaks about Batwoman

Yesterday was a big day for the world of television comic series. Speculations, rumors and wild hunches were all hushed quite immediately when the announcement of Ruby Rose claiming the role of Kate Kane/Batwoman was announced. The casting directors and showrunners held true to their desire to bring an out lesbian actor to the role to play an out lesbian superhero. That trend was also recently reflected in the Arrowverse with Supergirl casting Nicole Maines as the first transgender superhero for their show. Ruby herself took to social media to express her excitement and her emotional state upon "letting the bat out of the bag". You can see her post below:

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 liked to have seen on TV when I was a young member of the LGBT community who never was represented on tv and feld alone and different. Thank you everyone. Thank you god.

From this post it seems clear to us that Ruby is very aware of the monumental responsibility being Batwoman carries and it's also obvious she will treat the show and the character with care and grace.
