She has come to “slay” and protect Gotham City . The CW has released the first picture of Ruby Rose as Kate Kane aka Batwoman who will make her debut on the annual Arrowverse crossover and this look does not disappoint.
Rose, who was announced to portray the Jewish lesbian super hero received a lot of backlash. She was told that she was not lesbian enough and in some instances did not look Jewish enough. Rose, who is a lesbian, silenced the complaints saying “When women and when minorities join forces we are unstoppable… when we tear each other down it’s much more hurtful than from any group. But hey/ love a challenge I just wish women and the LGBT community supported each other more, My wish was we were all a little kinder and more supportive of each other…if you need me I’ll be on my batphone.” She then deleted her Twitter account.
Rose is supporting a head full of fiery red hair and dons the signature cowl and cape designed by four-time Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood,
The annual Arrowverse crossover event will kickoff on the CW Sunday, Dec. 9 at 8 PM ET.
