New picture of Ruby Rose in Batwoman costume gets fans hyped about 'Elseworlds' crossover
The stunt coordinator of 'Arrow', James Bamford, finally shared a picture of Ruby Rose in the Batwoman (aka Kate Kane) costume on his Instagram
Fans of the Arrowverse are impatient about the legendary 'Elseworlds' crossover to take place in December. With pictures surfacing from behind the scenes the wait just feels longer. Fans are loving the pictures from behind the scenes, of alter-egos dressed as other superheroes - Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was seen in The Flash's suite and Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) in Arrow's suite - but are eagerly waiting to see an up-close of Ruby Rose in the Batwoman costume. The stunt coordinator of 'Arrow', James Bamford, finally fulfilled this wish and shared a picture of Ruby Rose in the Batwoman (aka Kate Kane) costume on his Instagram.
The reveal left fans super-excited and hyped for the 'Elseworlds' crossover and though we could not get a full-profile of the costume, we think Rose looks kick-a** in that black and red costume and black mask similar to the iconic one Batman adorns. While it remains a mystery what role Batwoman will play in the crossover, it is certain this could be the perfect debut to see whether a solo show about Batwoman would resonate with viewers or not. After snooping around the internet a little more, we found another picture posted by a fan on Instagram with Rose as Batwoman and Melissa Benoist as Supergirl aka Kara Danvers.

In an interview with ComicBook, Rose shared the excitement of being Batwoman and the connection she found with her character, "I feel like the reason I kept getting so emotional was because growing up watching TV I never saw someone on TV that I could identify with, let alone a superhero. I've always had this saying, well not me, Oscar Wilde, which is 'be yourself because everyone else is taken' and so I always lived by that motto and the second motto when I came into the industry was 'be the person that you needed when you were younger' and I feel like one motto sort of led me to the other and I just kept crying about it." Rose posted a first look of her character on her Instagram.

"Ruby doesn’t need my help, at all," said Amell in an interview with ComicBook. He added: "But I have always taken great pride when we have a new character -- this situation is very similar to when Grant [Gustin] was introduced as Barry Allen on our show. You effectively have an episode that is this person's story, but they are dropping into a world where everyone is familiar with one another, there are no nerves, everyone knows how it works. Even if she doesn't feel it, I feel like there's a great deal of pressure on Ruby. I would just hope that if she needs anything from me, she wouldn't hesitate to ask."
