Ruby Rose Gets Emotional About Being Cast as Batwoman


  • gets emotional? has no one told her she's fucking shit at it yet?

  • Ruby Rose why are you wasting your time on the The CW when you should on the movies with Superman Wonder Woman and Batman of course

  • I don't get what's wrong with these toxic people. Everybody complained about Grant Gustin being The flash saying that he was too thin and blah blah blah. But now, nobody wants anybody other than Grant Gustin to be the flash. Why can't you people just give somebody a chance and see if you like 'em. People are so spoiled these days, they start crying before even watching the thing. I am disappointed at the fans.

  • She did a competent job this episode, but the script gave her fuck all to do. She's nothing but badass for the whole episode. There's no reason to care about this character. Yet.

  • Who is here after the elseworlds crossover??

  • I’m happy she’s playing Batwoman but she looks more like a Catwoman in my opinion just saying 🤔

  • You kidding me, DC has bad history in casting (Not all, but most of the cast). Now Ruby just need to prove that I'm wrong

  • Arrow The Flash Supergirl GOTHAM DC Comic Canal 5

  • Girls... I'm seriously looking forward to this.... All the haters will see that the chance that DC was given her is well invested! Thank you DC and you will rock it Ruby!! Greets from Germany

  • #RubyRose you're so freaking beautiful😍

  • She's by far the worst actress I've ever watched.

  • Don't worry folks, identity politics will seep into this show and ruin it.

  • I'll check out the Batwoman show.

  • i’m literally bi because of her

  • Sure we need more such role models for young girls. Specifically - the more tattoo the better.

  • She is a stunning

  • Another LBGTQAWXYZ blah blah blah beIN shoved down our throats, trying to "rewrite" something never broken in the first place.

  • I want Batman show so bad but hey Batwoman Yea! 😑😑😑

  • I never thought that there was actually someone named Ruby rose, the only Ruby rose I know of is from an animated web series I watch

  • She will fit the role perfectly

  • Huge congrats to her on getting the role of an iconic superhero, soooo can't wait for this crossover, really looking forward to seeing her take on Batwoman and seeing Barry and Oliver switching 😊😊

  • One word: gorgeous

  • I want to see that series

  • the comment section really smells like tuna.

  • Shes gender fluid so she can be batwoman and batman

  • “Be yourself because everyone else is taken” Love that! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

  • Other than bat woman, she should be the older Catwoman at the end of Gotham!

  • Look at him he so happy loll

  • Own it hermanita

  • Well, on the bright side commissioner Gorden doesn’t have to worry about Batman hooking up with Batwoman. She isn’t into his bat dong.

  • i´m really happy to see her act batwoman:D

  • She could be a great cat woman tbh

  • She seems like Catwoman though

  • Huh and here I am still waiting for CW to make a CATWOMAN series!!! Though I love Ruby and I couldn't be more excited for her!!!!

  • We waited for Batwoman, And look what we get. I just hope acting and character build would be Ok. If not it will go straight to the gutter.

  • OMG, Jimmy is soooo annoying. So awkward and nervous all the time. Looks like he's on meth or something. How did he ever get this gig??

  • Love Ruby Rose, I am looking forward to seeing her play Batwoman. I think she will play the role well.

    • The first trailer with batwoman is out

  • It's time men start taking on women roles! Who is up for Cat-man??

  • I like her but she truly can't act. Just watch John Wick 2 and you'll know

  • but she is a perfect batwoman. got that madmax dont need a man tough tomboy vibes. boxer family is close to batwoman's army family ties. perfect counter to batman. the hero gotham need growing up. that ruby rose deserves. no vaccum sealed suits here!

  • I feel like jimmy finda out about the person, befor they arrives. Ellen could learn something!

  • She's such a beautiful woman.

  • Is she gay though 🤔

  • Ah shit I thought she was talking about the new birds of prey movie. It was just CW verse. Anyways better than nothing. I guess Margot Robbie would know whose going to be Batgirl in the next DCU movie for 2020

  • she is so beautiful and she's playing Batwoman even though I didn't even know that Batwoman existed until I heard Ruby Rose getting the part I know about Batgirl I've seen her in the cartoons and I played as her in the Arkham game called Arkham Knight so is Batgirl Batwoman because she's older because I know for a fact Superwoman don't exist just Supergirl so please somebody correct me if I'm wrong or right if they the same person

  • I didnt even know there was a batwoman

  • Batwomen was always gay. Don’t know why it’s such a big deal.

  • The problem is that she is a terrible actor......

  • Still think she suck at acting tbh but the amount of hate she get is unnecessary imo. I don't like her so I won't watch the show, no need to harass her on social media everyday.

  • She's batwoman till she gets recasted for the big screen wait...dc has no idea what is going on

  • CW films are all about Political Correctness rather than actual films.

  • Jimmy «This is the best interview I had» Me «Yes, yes it is😌you are lucky to meet an angel like that»


  • So jealous, good for her

  • finally, queer women actually playing queer women! LGBT+ actors playing Lgbt+ characters!

  • Is batwoman & batgirl the same character or a different character?

    • different

    • JoeMama'sBaby'sSister'sAuntie Jay batwoman was later introduced into the dc universe as a seperate character whom, much like batgirl, takes up the “bat” mantle without the guidance and supervision of batman. They are completely separate characters but have somewhat similar backgrounds and so they are sometimes confused as being variations of the same character.

  • Shes an amazing human and so lovely and kind and giving and I'm crying because I'll never get to meet her 😭

  • do you really have to identify with everything you see on TV? yeeezus,,,,,,

  • Ruby Rose seems cool and kind, why are people hating on her?

  • This interview is obviously prior to the bullying she was subjected to online. She is so excited to play this character and the internet just had to ruin that for her.

  • I overuse this joke, but may as well do it here. If there is a Batman shampoo, there should be a Conditioner Gordon. But how about a Batwoman Shampoo and Conditioner because she can go either way.

  • Great just what we needed a gay character ruining Batman, this is bullshit. Enough with this gay agenda ruining great characters and stories just to promote some sick lifestyle. They put a gay character in everything nowdays, enough is enough.

  • Man fuck those CW shows, no one cares about it. they need to leave the Batman mythology alone. They have done enough damage and stupid changes to the original characters and stories as it is.

  • Wow sorry but as great as ruby is she just doesn’t have the look for batwoman

  • Anyone else find her NOT attractive? Like a 10 year old boy mixed with a lesbian with justin bieber

  • She’s beautiful. It’s a shame

  • So DC are still making movies , even though they lost there batman & superman

  • 🇨🇦❤️🇨🇦

  • justin bieber as batwoman? weird

  • Bat woman? Since when has there been a bat woman?

  • Did she not get fired from being Batwoman because of people not liking her being cast as Batwoman?

  • Fandoms got your back,Ruby!!! We love you and good luck!!!

  • She is so amazing. Best of luck

  • As far as I'm concerned, this is yet another fail for DC.

  • I'm emotional about that poor excuse for an actor being cast as batwomen too, fucking pointless.

  • Can't wait to see Ruby Rose as Batwoman she's going to own it.

  • She is so stunning, too bad she likes girls

  • Is there a worse role model for women than Ruby Rose to play superhero? Actually yes, there's still Brie Larson as Captain Underpants, oops, Marvel!

  • Ok she's so sexy but seriously what has she to do in a movie like this? And what is the reason? I just don't see her as the batwoman!

  • She looks more like the Joker

  • the one who casted her as batwoman have to get a promotion. am talking you'll

  • She just said she couldn’t find no one she could identify with. Wtf. Sure welcome to my world. Please give me a break

  • She should of been cast for the women joker or cat woman. Not batwomen

  • FEMINAZI LGBT bullcrap, promoted by regresive lefty hollywood to brainwash kids and make stright normal women miserable and feminize and castrate males. disgusting.

  • Love the casting choice, love the outfit, fucking hate Jimmy Fallon. Fake ass bitch Fallon.

  • As a DC comic book fan, I am so stoked about a live action Batwoman. People who don’t read comics are missing how great the new 52 Batwoman series was (before Dan Dideo interferes with the story direction enough to make the entire creative team quit). Batwoman is an incredibly interesting, layered, powerful character. And in the current lexicon on Hollywood actors, Ruby Rose is a fantastic choice. I honestly cannot wait to see the story they do with it.

    • Can you help me with the comics, please?

  • really wish they would have cast a JEWISH actress.

  • perfect role choice for her, because Batwoman is a lesbian in the comics. Just makes sense. I wish her much success!

  • What the fuck is Batwoman? There is a Batwoman now???

    • Ameer Fisher It was in DC for a loooooong time

  • Damn she's a beautiful woman. I've seen every movie she's been in thus and ahe has done great work. Those legs are banging tho.

  • What a beautiful individual. So amazing and such a big heart

  • Awesome actress, just hope DC gets it right and doesn't fuck it up like Wonder Woman with Gal Gadot.

  • She'll be great as Batwoman. People need to shut the fuck up and wait to see her performance.

  • Firstly, it is Bat-"girl" not Bat-"woman". Secondly, sorry but this is the worst choice I have seen. She just is not right for that part. Another DC mistake?

    • Anthony Joyce you’re an idiot Anthony. She is not playing bat girl....batwoman is a different character completely.

  • Wow. I don´t know if she´s a good actress or not, but at least she has the exact same look as the character in the comicbooks.

  • Yay! BW...

  • she could be captain totally

  • Truly inspirational and thank you for staying true to that little girl's dream. You're awesome Ruby!!

  • She is so beautiful 😍

  • I hope it's not as awful as Supergirl

    • You can bet it will.
