  • Ruby Rose Tonight Show

And Ruby Rose was the image of joy when she swung by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for an episode that will air Wednesday evening.

Just before she attended the red carpet premiere of The Meg Monday, the Australian actress learned she'd been cast as Batwoman in The CW's next Arrowverse crossover-and that the network will also be developing a Batwoman series for consideration in the 2019-2020 season.

"I kept spontaneously crying, and I feel like I'm probably going to do it now", Ruby gushed.

The actress took to social media to call the news a "childhood dream", adding, "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". "I feel like one motto led to another".

Rose, 32, told Fallon she used to make bat wings and jump off "high places" when she was a child but now she will "get ones that aren't made of cardboard".

While many people are happy about the CW bringing a lesbian superhero to television, but many in the Arrow-verse fandom aren't sold on the idea of Rose in the role quite yet.

Syrian first lady Asma al-Assad treated for breast cancer
In a video in 2012, the British and German ambassadors to the United Nations appealed to her to speak out against the violence. Before the crisis began in March 2011, she was the subject of flattering profiles in Vogue and other fashion magazines.


But what she's especially looking forward to is dressing up as Batwoman, meeting kids at hospitals who will very likely look up to her.

Batwoman, originally a love interest for Batman, was reintroduced in 2006 as a Jewish lesbian character.

Batwoman, aka Kate Kane, first appeared in Detective Comics in 1956.

The now-traditional four-show crossover is set to air this December.

"But don't call her a hero yet", the press release continues.
