Ruby Rose Reveals a Peek at Batwoman’s Personality on “Elseworlds”
We are nearing the Batwoman reveal on the CW and EW has the first action shot of Ruby Rose. She may be a newcomer to the DC empire, but Rose looks confident, collected, and cool. Just because this is her first time in the cape doesn’t mean it’s her character’s. Rose told EW that Kate Kane has suited up before and is completely comfortable in the role of Gotham’s defender.
When The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl combine in the “Elseworlds” special, Kane will already have plenty of experience. “She is more fun because she’s a billionaire, she has ladies that love her. I think, for the most part crossover-wise, she’s swaggy,” Rose told EW. “She always knew who she was, but she’s really coming into knowing who she is in the crossover, and with Batwoman as well. It’s not the first time she’s put on the suit.”
That suit looks killer on Rose, as we already discovered when the show released a poster of the character. The red and black outfit is instantly iconic and Rose said it was transformative to wear. Just putting it on helps her evolve into Batwoman.
“It’s a strange feeling to put on a suit like this that has been custom made for you knowing that it’s going to transform you into a character that does amazing things,” Rose said. “You feel very empowered and it just instantly changes everything you feel in that moment.”
When we first see her, it sounds like she’ll be an independent agent. Batwoman has her own thing going and doesn’t need helpless superheroes bringing her down. Maybe the rest of the team will win her over, but for now, she’s not impressed.
“Kate does not want to deal with this. She has a whole other agenda, a whole other life that she’s trying to sort out right now, and these frigging superheroes come in and they’re a mess, and they need her help,” says Rose.
We are psyched to get to know Kate Kane and Batwoman. The “Elseworlds” premiere on December 9 will be a prelude to a standalone Batwoman series and we cannot wait for it all to unfold.
