Batwoman’s Ruby Rose Replacement Won’t Be Kate Kane

It’s been a couple of weeks since Ruby Rose announced her departure from The CW’s Batwoman and it was reported at the time that the show was looking to recast the role.

However, it’s recently been reported that The CW weren’t going to recast the character of Kate Kane, but cast an entirely new character to take on the Batwoman mantle, with the Decider confirming the news.

The rumors began when a leaked casting call made its way to Reddit looking for a character called Ryan Wilder. Wilder was described as “female, mid-late twenties and any ethnicity” and the casting call confirmed that “Ryan Wilder is about to become Batwoman.”

Warner Bros. had recently announced they were looking for a member of the LGBTQ community to replace Rose, implying Wilder will be a member herself.

The description continued that, “She’s likable, messy, a little goofy and untamed. She’s also nothing like Kate Kane, the woman who wore the batsuit before her.” While the name Ryan Wilder may be a cover up for the eventual character, it seems Batwoman will have a new leading lady sometime soon.

  1. Very Interesting…

    Goofy… There’s something you don’t see in the Bat family too often. Should be an interesting change. My one complaint with the series thus far is that they made Batwoman a cardboard cutout of Batman instead of a unique character.

    1. Yeah that’s an issue I’ve had with it too. The whole ‘goofy’ characteristic implies she’s gonna be similar to the majority of the Arrowverse characters which may be a good thing, or it might not. We’ll have to wait and see I suppose!
