With the Elseworlds crossover due to begin on December 9th, we don’t have long to wait for Ruby Rose’s big debut as Batwoman in the Arrowverse. Today, there are fresh teasers to get you hyped.
The brand new image that sits atop this article was released by Entertainment Weekly, and apparently, it shows Batwoman thwarting a prison break. James Bamford, who directed the Arrow portion of the crossover, told EW that he “wanted all of the bat toys to be revealed in one scene.”
On the importance of the character, Rose herself said this to EW:
“The fact that she is an outwardly gay superhero, which is something growing up I would’ve loved to have seen on my TV, was a big deciding factor as to why I was so passionate about the role. This [role] just meant a lot more to me because I could relate in so many ways and, at the same time, felt like this was a job that would give me a purpose every day coming into work beyond just getting to live my dream, which is acting, and would be far more rewarding than anything I’ve done in the past.”
Producer Marc Guggenheim noted that the Batwoman character is “a lot like Batman in the sense that she’s kind of a dick.” He then hastened to mention that “Ruby’s amazing. She brings such a different colour and tone.”
