    Interesting.

    I wonder who they are looking at for the lead role?

    As nice as she is, I believe they are looking for a 25-29 gay female.

    Im sure a non gay actress could play the part just as well as gay actors and actresses have played straight roles.

    Of course, but in this age I’m sure there would be outcry, which the producers have pre emptied by going for a gay actress.

    Are there a lot of openly gay actresses? Anne Heche.... er.... Rosie O'Donnel.... That's all I've got and I can't see Rosie fitting the bill as she's too old :)

    If it works one way it should work the other, it can't only work one way or its prejudice.

    That's a good question, I can't think of many.

    Here's a list from IMDB.

    They should get Miriam Margoyles for the role. That would put the wind up the villains.

    :D

    Are the actresses that play Sara Lance (Legends of Tomorrow), Alex Danvers (Supergirl) or Thunder (Black Lightning) gay?

    Chyler Leigh is married to Nathan West and has three children, Caity Lotz has a boyfriend and Nafessa Williams doesn’t post much but does appear to be straight, so that’s a no for all of those.

    So that does kind of suggest you don’t need a gay actress to play a gay character.

    You don't need to cast a gay actress but it will be a MUCH higher profile role than those other parts mentioned, and the sexuality of the character was quite a big part of the comic.

    Having an openly gay actress take the role would be a positive step - so I can see why they'd want to at least try that approach first. It's a similar approach to ST Discovery, for instance.

    I don't know this version of Batwoman so I have no idea how big a thing in the comic it is. If they were to find a suitable gay actress who was right for the role then great but they'd be restricting their choice of people if they insisted on going down that route. According to wiki she's also of Jewish descent. Should the actress also be Jewish? There will be other aspects of her character to consider as well.

    In my opinion it should go to the person best suited for the role. After all acting is acting.

    Oh yeah, she was in Orange is the New Black. She was good in that. Not exactly an Amazon in stature though, even if an amateur boxer with boxing heritage and not Jewish or, American. After all the recent outcries by the Jewish community you have to wonder if they'll be more stink over that than her not being American.

    I'm tempted to start a Twitter campaign to complain that they didn't make Batwoman a man. Seems fitting of late.

    Could be worse, look what they did to Jimmy Olsen... talk about taking liberties :p

    Ruby Rose is interesting though, she's good in John Wick 2.
