Ruby Rose’s departure left a huge void for the second season of «Batwoman,» the most recent superheroic series of The CW’s Arrowverse. The protagonist did not give specific details about her unthinking after the end of the first installment, but from the network and the show managers came out to ensure that everything would follow stern with a new performer, also a member of the LGBT community, to honor Kate Kane’s character. Or not so much. That first choice of recasting Gotham’s justice now takes a new path, as the filmmakers will put a new character under The Robe’s cape and hood. Simply put, Kate Kane will leave along with Rose and another heroine will come to take her place. What will the witness pass like? That’s what remains to be seen, as is the «origin story» assigned to this new protagonist.
A new heroine is coming for Gotham
It wouldn’t be the first time that something like this has happened with a comtouring character – think of all those versions of Flash or Green Lantern that swarm around – but in the case of Batwoman (whose current representation was introduced in 2006 by Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Greg Rucka and others), there’s not much choice of where to hold on. If we were guided by the first rumors, and the announcement of a casting that spread through the dark corners of Reddit, the new protagonist would be named Ryan Wilder, a woman in her twor «who is about to become Batwoman.» It’s nice, messy, a little fluloding and untamed. She doesn’t look anything like Kate Kane, the woman who wore the suit before her. With no one in his life to keep her on track, Ryan spent years as a drug dealer, dodging Gotham police and masking his pain with bad habits. A girl who would steal milk for a stray cat, but also kill you with a clean fist, Ryan is the most dangerous type of fighter: highly skilled and undisciplined. An outgoing lesbian. Athletic. Raw. Passionate. Fallible. And it’s not your stereotypical American hero,» says the so-called publication, which has since been removed from the nets.
Ruby Rose fired after her first season
«Batwoman» became the first LGTB superhero protagonist of her own show, a no lesser detail for mainstream TV. We will have to see what this transition between characters will look like when the series returns in January, possibly completing a first season that was truncated (only reached twenty of the twenty-two scheduled episodes) due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
