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.
@RubyRose good choice! She will make an awesome Batwoman!!!

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.
BRAVO @TheCW! Now just make sure there are women writing and directing and we will genuflect!!

#ICYMI: gender fluid actor Ruby Rose has been cast as Batwoman! Visible, out role models like @RubyRose show #LGBTQ young people that their identities can be a super power too. ️ https://t.co/Sxc2VBZDkt?
