Ruby Rose’s ‘Batwoman’ Replacement Will Be A New Character

Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane will be replaced with a new character who will take on the Batwoman mantle in season two.

Ever since the news of Ruby Rose departing Batwoman after one season, there has been speculation on whether we would simply see a new actress play Kate Kane or a completely new character take on the mantle. All we’ve known so far is that the new lead will be a representative of the LGBTQ community. Entertainment Weekly is now reporting that season two will introduce a new character to replace Rose’s Kate Kane and assume the Batwoman mantle.

Entertainment Weekly’s report stems from a post on Reddit that revealed a Batwoman casting call for a character named Ryan Wilder. The document that was shared on Reddit describes the character who will replace Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane as the following:

“She’s likable, messy, a little goofy, and untamed. With no one in her life to keep her on track, Ryan spent years as a drug-runner, dodging the GCPD and masking her pain with bad habits. Today, reformed and sober, Ryan lives in van with her plant. A girl who would steal milk from an alley cat and could also kill you with her bare hands, Ryan is the most dangerous type of fighter: highly skilled and wildly disciplined. An out lesbian. Athletic. Raw. Passionate. Fallible. And very much not your stereotypical All-American hero.”

Ruby Rose’s replacement will appear in Batwoman season two. Here is the official synopsis:

Season two kicks off with a major game-changer that will alter Gotham and The Bat Team forever. As the dust settles, Batwoman has everything working against her – including the recently escaped rogues’ gallery of villains – and everyone will come to see her in a whole new light. Alice meets her match when she becomes entangled with a dangerous foe from her past who knows exactly how to prey on her vulnerabilities. As Luke (Camrus Johnson) and Mary (Nicole Kang) find their footing as sidekicks, a romance will shake up their dynamic. Meanwhile, Sophie (Megan Tandy) and Julia’s (guest star Christina Wolfe) budding relationship will face its first real test and make Sophie question everything she thought she knew to be true.

Batwoman season two is currently set to air in 2021 on The CW. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latests news on Batwoman and the rest of the Arrowverse. Also be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content in the future!
