Ruby Rose Set To Play TV’s First Leading Lesbian Superhero—And Fans Are Pumped 🙌

Ruby Rose was just announced as the CW’s choice to play Batwoman.

The network is developing a Batwoman stand-alone series, but for fans who just can’t wait, Rose’s debut of the role will take place in an Arrow crossover event in December. 

Fans are totally obsessed with the Orange is the New Black and John Wick star. 

But more importantly, Rose will join the likes of Nicole Maines, the trans actress slated to play Nia Nal in the upcoming season of Supergirl, in the superheroine universe. Ruby Rose, identifies as lesbian and genderfluid. Now she will play a lesbian character. 

This begins to break down barriers for women as well as the LGBT community, and Twitter is ready for the change. 

Congratulations, Batwoman!
