Ruby Rose Joins DC Universe As Batwoman

Ruby Rose is Batwoman and we’re excited! We were first introduced to Ruby Rose through Orange Is The New Black where she played Stella Carlin, naughty vixen intent on stealing Piper’s attention from Alex. Ever since, she has been gaining more and more attention, appearing in movies such as Pitch Perfect 3 and the upcoming movie The Meg (in theaters August 10th).

This Australian actress is a self-professed comic-book nerd so, Kate Kane, aka Batwoman, is familiar territory. The casting description says that “Kate is fully aware of how bad-ass she is as soon as she enters a room,” and that is something Ruby will be able to pull off. The casting team said they were specifically looking for a “lesbian woman” to play the part. Ruby Rose identifies as genderfluid and lesbian which makes her a great fit.

We’ll first get to see Ruby as Batwoman in this year’s Arrowverse crossover which will include ArrowThe Flash, and Supergirl. Due to the current storyline, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will not be included (though their EP said you can expect to hear the characters complain about it). Currently, Batwoman’s own show is being developed and scripted by writer Caroline Dries of The Vampire Diaries. No word on when that will start, but we’re hoping it will get a half-season run at the beginning of 2019.

Crystal joined the Nerds and Beyond team in 2018. Three years earlier, she tripped into the Supernatural fandom and decided to stay. It's where her passion for writing was reborn. Her free time is largely centered around creative writing (okay, it's fanfic), providing editing for others, and binging makeover shows. The DC Universe is her other fandom of choice and she lives for the crossover extravaganzas. The main joy in her life is her young son whom she homeschools and takes to Disney World as often as possible. Check her out on Twitter at @TheShyGirlAo3.
