First look at Ruby Rose as Batwoman Revealed

The star has begun filming her first episodes as the character

The first image of Ruby Rose as Batwoman has been revealed as filming begins on her first appearance as the hero.


The actress will be seen this December in crossover episodes of existing series The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl ahead of having her own TV series. She will then star in her own TV show focusing on the character’s adventures.

Speaking about her casting earlier this year, Rose told Jimmy Fallon:

“It’s a game-changer. I found out an hour before I did the premiere for The Meg and I was so nervous doing the red carpet so I basically skipped everybody because I kept spontaneously crying. I feel like the reason I got so emotional is that growing up, watching TV, I never saw someone on TV that I could identify with, let alone a superhero, you know?”

However, fans weren’t as impressed with her casting, criticising the decision to cast a non-Jewish actor to play a Jewish character. Some also suggested Rose shouldn’t portray the first openly gay lead character in a live-action superhero series because she “isn’t gay enough”.

Responding to the backlash, Rose said:

“Where on earth did ‘Ruby is not a lesbian therefore she can’t be batwoman’ come from? Has to be the funniest most ridiculous thing I’ve ever read. I came out at 12? And have for the past 5 years had to deal with ‘she’s too gay’ how do y’all flip it like that? I didn’t change.”


Bex Taylor-Klaus Is ‘V Gay’!

The Scream actress just came out to the rest of the internet in a very casual tweet Wednesday night, followed by a YouNow stream addressing further questions.

She has fueled rumors ever since starring in television series in which she portrays all queer characters – The Killing, Arrow, Scream, and House of Lies.

I have this thing where I value honesty, and I realized that I have not been honest with both myself and with all of you.”

When asked what she felt leading up to the very exciting day, she says,

Part of why I’m coming out now is because there’s so much hate and fear in and around the LGBT community right now and it’s important for us not to halt progress out of fear.”

Taylor-Klaus also reveals the real reason she’s coming out this way, “So I have a chance to interact with those of you who feel that way and who kind of want to know more.”

The star recalled coming out to her family – which she chose not to discuss because “it involves uncomfortable sex jokes” – and how fans have been messaging her

over the years about how it’s been hard for them to come to terms within themselves, not even yet talking about their family or how to come out to [family] and friends. It’s just the first step is within yourself and for some people, that’s hard to do.”

Bex received an overwhelming amount of support from fans and people of the industry alike not long after her stream went off air, thanking them on twitter: “Thank you for all the support since last night – truly means a lot!”

Honestly, we’re just really proud of her.
