Ruby Rose shocked the TV industry when she announced that she was quitting the CW series, Batwoman after just one season. This left the show with a big decision, do they recast the role of Kate Kane, or do they just get rid of her and choose someone else to take on the role. According to several new reports, it can now be confirmed that they’ve gone with the latter. Here is the casting description for the woman who will be picking up the cape and cowl in season 2, Ryan Wilder.
Female, Mid-late 20s, any ethnicity. Ryan Wilder is about to become Batwoman. She’s likable, messy, a little goofy and untamed. She’s also nothing like Kate Kane, the woman who wore the batsuit before her. 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 her van with her plant. A girl who would steal milk for an alley cat and could also kill you with her bare hands, Ryan is th emost dangerous type of fighter: highly skilled and wildly undisciplined. An out lesbian. Athletic. Raw. Passionate. Falliable. And very much not your stereotypical All-American hero.
