Today, the CW released the first official photo of Ruby Rose as Batwoman and fans have taken to social media to share their reactions.
This year’s Arrowverse crossover will introduce Batwoman to the CW’s superhero universe and actress Ruby Rose will don the cape and cowl for the character first live-action appearance. Now, the CW has unveiled the first photo of Ruby Rose in costume as the DC hero and fans have expressed mixed reactions to the outfit on Twitter. While many are thrilled with this live-action version of the suit, others aren’t nearly as enthusiastic and some have even likened it to a Halloween costume.

You know, at first I was fifty-fifty on this costume, but the more I look at it, it's starting to grow on me; now my only complaint is why can't the CW's villains ever look this accurate? #Batwoman pic.twitter.com/RMKphsP6Wj

I’m sorry is this the first look at Ruby Rose as Batwoman, or the insert of a Halloween costume, it’s hard to tell…. pic.twitter.com/N7xII2vBHm

Batwoman looks shit and Ruby Rose can't act. Man, the CW DC stuff was so on point in the beginning. We still have the memories
