Ruby Rose chats with Jimmy about how she's processing her emotions after being cast as the new Batwoman in an upcoming CW series and explains how bats and bat wings have always been part of her life.

She broke the news on Instagram yesterday. 

The Bat is out of the bag and I am beyond thrilled and honored. I’m also an emotional wreck.. because this is a childhood dream. This is something I would have died to have seen on TV when I was a young member of the LGBT community who never felt represented on tv and felt alone and different. Thank you everyone. Thank you god.

This won't be the first time sporting bat wings for Ruby, oddly enough her mother used to make her cardboard bat wings as a young child.

"We grew up with not a lot of money, so I would make my toys and I would make bat wings out of recycled cardboard boxes and I would sleep in them and run around in them and jump off high things," she told Fallon. "[My mom> said we would have to keep gaffer taping them ... and I just lived in them. And now I'll get ones that aren't made of cardboard."
