Ruby Rose has said that Batwoman’s relationship will be different to how lesbian relationships are usually presented in the media.
In an interview with Adweek Rose said that the superhero’s relationship would be normalised, matter-of-fact and “just like anybody else.”
“There’s a way that television shows and films often depict any kind of new relationship when it’s a woman and a woman. It often has a beginning, middle and end that’s always the same,” said Rose.
“Like, ‘Oh, my gosh, you’re my best friend and we’re having a slumber party in high school!’ It’s fine, because that is a way that still represents and still speaks to a legitimate way that people get together in relationships. But it also feels like we have to do more explaining than when it’s just a heterosexual couple.”
