Ruby Rose Reportedly Cried During Batwoman’s Coming Out Scene
With the return of Batwoman from its midseason break and “Crisis on Infinite Earth”, we also saw something big for the character. Apparently, Kate Kane is a lesbian, after the Gotham world’s general perception of Kane being a straight woman. According to the series’ writer Caroline Dries, the scene of Batwoman coming out on CatCo’s magazine cover is a major moment for the storyline and the character. Ruby Rose probably understands this more than anyone else, as she reportedly broke into tears.
Ruby Rose Started Crying After Reading Script
Dries talked about how Ruby Rose liked the scene of Batwoman coming out as a lesbian. In fact, she also changed the script a bit in order to infuse everything together.
“She said she cried while she was reading it. I know it meant a lot to her. Interestingly, there was a line where Parker says, ‘It doesnt’ get better,’ and Kate says, ‘You know, you’re right Parker, it doesn’t get better.’ Ruby [Rose] wrote to me and said, ‘You know, a lot of people look up to this character and watch this show and they don’t want to hear the lead character say, You’re right, it doens’t get better.’ So, we found a way to tweak it, so it could be like, it’s still hard out there, but you will get better if you start to love yourself more and embrace yourself.”
Dries explained a bit further about Ruby Rose’s character. She talked about how Batwoman is a strong, independent, badass, and a confident woman who fights bad guys. She puts on a costume and hides her vulnerabilities and her big heart.
Kate Kane becomes a different person then, but that was not working for the creator. She then decided to change this a bit, into something that does not make Batwoman look like a liar.
“And she’s not a liar. She’s just been told [on “Crisis on Infinite Earths”] that she’s the Paragon of Courage; she just helped put all these universes back together.”
Batwoman starring Ruby Rose might just be putting her security as Kate Kane in danger now, however, the fact that she has done this makes her enough of a hero for others.
