Batwoman star Ruby Rose has exited the series.


According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rose will step down after just one season of The CW series. She did not provide a reason for her departure. Warner Bros. plans to recast the role, as the show had already been renewed for a second season. Batwoman is slated to return for a full season sometime in January 2021.

This is pretty surprising news. At first I had to remind myself that it wasn't April and that this wasn't an April Fool's Day prank.

The second season will go ahead just with a new actress in the role. I'm curious who they will get, especially since they want to cast an actress who is a member of the LGBT community.

I'm sorry to hear this, as Ruby Rose was the principal draw for me.

It's sad news. Rose was fantastic in the role. She's such a striking, distinctive presence -- she won't be easy to replace.

A number of actresses have already expressed interest in the role on social media. But for me, the most credible candidate to join this Battle for the Cowl so far is Jade Tailor of The Magicians:

I could really see that. She's similar in appearance and height, she's a trained stunt fighter (as she shows in the Twitter video at the above link), she's got a similar edge to Rose, and she's just about as gorgeous as Rose.

Of course, just posting a Twitter video doesn't mean someone's genuinely in contention for the role, but this is the first alternative I've seen mentioned that I not only find credible, but am excited by. I shouldn't get my hopes up, but I'd be happy if she got the part.
