Welcome: Ruby Rose

When it was announced earlier this year that Australian actor Ruby Rose would play Batwoman, fans were divided.

According to social media, die-hard fans of the original comic had been hoping the openly lesbian and Jewish character would provide the perfect opportunity for an unexpected and diverse casting choice - and Rose didn't quite fit the bill.

At the time, Rose said: “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."

While fans weren't initially taken by Rose in the groundbreaking role, a sneak peak of the star in full costume appears to had swayed their opinions.

Batwoman recently debuted on The CW network's other superhero TV franchises, with guest spots on Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl, and she has a stand-alone series also in development.

The standalone Batwoman series is expected to follow Kate Kane, a Jewish lesbian who, according to an early press release, is “armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind.”

Well it seems everyone loves Ruby Rose as Batwoman and she'll be among the elite of CW's comic book heroes. Well done caped crusader, who needs Batman when you have a kick ass heroine in Gotham? Ruby Rose is doin' it!
