A lot of excitement and hype surrounds Ruby Rose’s upcoming debut as Batwoman in the latest CW crossover, “Elseworlds.” Still, this new image of Rose’s Batwoman and Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl is no big deal, right? We’re totally not freaking out over here and not getting pumped over this picture Benoist posted of her and Rose in full costume from the “Elseworlds” set, and neither are the thousands of fans sharing the pic all over social media.
Okay, so maybe I cracked a smile just as big as the one Melissa Benoist is rocking in the photo, because how can anyone not? Everybody should be in an elseworld of happiness, as this photo of the two heroes cheesin’ it up is yet another fantastic look at the batty costume Ruby Rose will wear in the three-show crossover. Needless to say, the costume looks great, which is part of why Benoist can’t hold back smiles whilst standing next to her co-star.
Benoist’s photo was met with lots of love on Instagram, with her fans largely approving of the pic. That’s obviously a good thing, considering Ruby Rose temporarily left social media months ago, with many believing her reasoning was tied to the bullying and criticism she faced following her casting as Batwoman. Negativity was relatively absent in the comment section of Melissa Benoist’s post, which could mean even skeptics are coming around to Batwoman’s upcoming portrayal.
This is the second look fans have gotten at the Arrow-verse’ Batwoman costume, with the first official release coming earlier this month. The suit looks just as awesome in the latest peek, offering more up-close details. Unfortunately, we can’t see any more of Batwoman’s sweet cape, as it’s either been removed from the costume or is just hidden behind Ruby Rose somewhere.
Melissa Benoist’s photo is just the latest picture from the set of the “Elseworlds” crossover. While there clearly hasn’t been a ton of Batwoman marketing, Arrow-verse fans have been treated to teases that show Stephen Amell dressed as The Flash, Grant Gustin as the Green Arrow, and other super surprises. Benoist posing with Rose may mean more pictures of Batwoman are coming. At least, that’s we’re hoping, so we can remain totally chill and not freak out after seeing them.
We’ll see in the coming weeks as hopefully more pictures from the “Elseworlds” set surface before its highly anticipated premiere on The CW on Sunday, December 9. The event, which Legends of Tomorrow is bowing out of, will kick off with The Flash on a special night, with Supergirl and Arrow to follow.
