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.
Ruby Rose, probably best known for her role on Orange Is The New Black, is having a good week. Her latest movie, The Meg, opens Friday and it was announced to day she’ll be donning the cowl as Batwoman for next season’s DCTV crossover event. A Batwoman TV series in development for the 2019-20 season.
Ruby has been an outspoken advocate for the LGBT+ community and identifies as gender-fluid. Batwoman is an openly gay super-heroine and it is being reported that production will not shy away from her sexuality.
We’ll call this a big win for representation.
