With Ruby Rose now set to play Batwoman on the small screen in her very own show on TheCW, it's likely that there are quite a few DC fans out there are desperate to find out more about the character, and what her introduction to the Arrowverse bodes for the franchise going forward.

Ruby Rose has made history after being cast as Batwoman, the first openly-gay superhero to headline a TV series. The news wasn't public at the time, and Rose was anxious she was going to slip up and accidentally tell someone while walking the red carpet, because she "kept spontaneously crying" about her casting.

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".

Rose was concerned that when reporters asked what she had planned next she'd accidentally blurt out Batwoman "or just start crying and they'll think, 'She doesn't look so good.' But I'm so thrilled". "I've always had this saying, well not me, Oscar Wilde, which is be yourself because everyone else is taken".

A standalone Batwoman TV show is also now in development at the CW, though a premiere date has not been set. The series also stars Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Willa Holland, Paul Blackthorne, Echo Kellum, Rick Gonzalez, Juliana Harkavy, and Katie Cassidy. But don't call her a hero yet.

Elon Musk says he's considering taking Tesla private
It's not hard to imagine the gyrations that Tesla's stock would go through if Musk's plan was scrapped or substantially changed. The announcement, made initially via Twitter, stunned investors and sent Tesla's stock price soaring as much as 13 percent.

The actor apreviously released a music video exploring her perception of non-traditional gender identities. "I kept spontaneously crying".

"It's an wonderful opportunity, obviously", she said.

"I know a lot of people don't understand that, but I know a few of you do".

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