The first openly gay superhero is coming to The CW!
Ruby Rose (Orange is the New Black) will star as Bat Woman in an upcoming series of the same name. But first, she will make an appearance in a December crossover event between the network’s other DC Comics shows, Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl.
She said in an Instagram post:
"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."
