Former Batwoman star Ruby Rose reacted to the news that Wallis Day is replacing her as Kate Kane in the Arrowverse.
Fans were shocked last year when it was announced that Ruby Rose was leaving Batwoman and Kate Kane due to a number of reasons involving the long hours and a painful back injury, but her character has made a return to Gotham City. Krypton star Wallis Day has replaced the star as Kate Kane after the former-Batwoman was critically injured in a plane crash and had her entire face reconstructed in the aftermath.
Fans online noticed that Ruby Rose hadn’t commented on the news about Wallis Day’s casting, but she quickly assured audiences that there’s no bad blood between the pair, explaining on her Instagram story “I’m stoked for her!” Although Rose had previously expressed an interest in returning as Kate Kane at some point in the future, Wallis Day’s casting means this is probably unlikely now. Take a look at Ruby Rose’s reaction to the Batwoman news below.
“I’m sorry I didn’t congratulate @wallisday yesterday. I knew about the casting beforehand and didn’t know when it aired so I forgot to. But I’m stoked for her! I’m seeing all the things I’m tagged in with people sad or wondering how I felt…I feel great, I have nothing but good vibes.”

Here is the official synopsis for Javicia Leslie’s Batwoman season two:
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 airing on The CW. Stay tuned for all the latest news on Wallis Day, Ruby Rose, Batwoman, and the rest of the Arrowverse. Also, be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original content!
