The superheroes first met during last year’s Elseworlds: Hour Two as Batwoman helped the former when she and her friends, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) were in Gotham City to locate John Deegan.
It was seen that Kane was cold towards other heroes however her behavior with Supergirl was quite nice with Kane even revealing her identity to the latter. Given that she helped her friend, looks like Supergirl is coming back to help her out in her upcoming series. However, the studio is yet to confirm the given update but rest assured as the duo is sure to get united in Crisis on Infinite Earths this December.
Queer Representation in Superhero Genre as Ruby Rose Leads Batwoman
She confirmed her presence by writing on Instagram,
“The Bat is out of the bag and I am beyond thrilled and honored.”
She continued to mention how this role was a dream for her.
“I’m also an emotional wreck.. because this is a childhood dream,” she stated. “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. Thank you everyone. Thank you god.”
Gender-fluid Rose portraying the iconic superhero role is a big deal for her since the canon reintroduced the character as a Jewish lesbian in 2006. With that introduction, she is one of the first queer heroes who is soon going to have her own live-action television show.
