Ruby Rose Lands Role As Lesbian Superhero Batwoman!

Ruby Rose Batwoman Ruby Rose Cast As Batwoman In the CW’s DC Crossover & Potential Series

Along with Batwoman marking the first superhero series to feature an out lesbian in the title role, The CW is also breaking barriers by introducing the first trans superhero set to be played by transgender activist Nicole Maines in Supergirl. She'll be playing Kate Kane, a Gothamite "with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind", describes DC Comics.

An out lesbian, headstrong activist, and fighter with a Liam Neeson-style set of special skills, Kate is poised to serve as Gotham City's protector and symbol of peace.

Rose is set to first don Kate Kane's mask and fiery red wig in this fall's Arrowverse crossover event before headlining her own solo series now in development at the network. Sarah Schechter of Berlanti Productions and Geoff Johns are also on board as executive producers. She's already got the hair cut - in the comics, heiress Kate Kane has choppy short hair and dons a red wig as a vigilante to better hide her identity. In an effort to quell parents concerns at the time, DC Comics created Batwoman. On the very queer-friendly CW, however, Kane/Batwoman will be in fine company with Black Lightning's Thunder (comicdom's fist black lesbian superhero) and CW Seed's animated The Ray representing for the LGBTQ community. However, Kate still deals with her inner demons that go back to her history with her dad.

After the first feed, babies are to be breastfed on demand that is whenever the baby shows signs of hunger day and night. When babies consume breast milk, they are less likely to develop respiratory illnesses, diabetes, and other diseases.

Some have slammed the CW's decision, argued that Rose being cast as Batwoman is as "bad" as Ben Affleck scoring the part of Batman, and claimed that DC has disappointed fans by selecting Rose for the role. Following an upcoming crossover, Rose's Batwoman will join their ranks.

Batwoman is coming to TV and she'll be played by an Australian. The character has previously been in relationships with Renee Montoya and Maggie Sawyer (a connection The CW is surely aware of).

She emerged in the media spotlight as a presenter on MTV Australia, followed by several high-profile modelling gigs, notably as the face of Maybelline New York in Australia.
