Here's Why Ruby Rose's 'Batwoman' Won't Be Recast

It was revealed last week that Ruby Rose‘s character in the Batwoman CW show would not be recast, and instead, a new character would be introduced.

“To be honest with you, I did consider the ‘soap opera version’ [of recasting] for a hot minute, because selfishly we already had a couple episodes written, and transition-wise it would be seamless,” showrunner Caroline Dries explained (via TV Line). “But upon further reflection — and I think [Arrowverse EP] Greg [Berlanti] helped me make this call — he’s like, ‘I think we should just reboot Batwoman as a different character.’”

Caroline added that they wanted to “respect to everything that Ruby [Rose] put into the Kate Kane character…it also helps the audience, because we’re not asking them to address ‘the elephant in the room’” by accepting a new face as the same person.”

The new character, Ryan Wilder, is “a whole new character who in her past was inspired by Batwoman, so she is going to take on the mantle…[she] is maybe not the right person at the time to be doing it, so that’s what makes it fun.” Find out a lot more about Ryan Wilder right here.

Ruby Rose Speaks Out About Her 'Batwoman' Exit: 'Those Who Know, Know'

Ruby Rose is finally opening up about her decision to leave The CW’s Batwoman as the title character.

The news rocked fans and the internet last week when the network released a statement about Ruby‘s exit.

“This was not a decision I made lightly as I have the utmost respect for the cast, crew and everyone involved with the show in both Vancouver and in Los Angeles,” the initial statement read.

In a new Instagram, Ruby opened up about her leaving again.

“Thank you everyone for coming on this journey. If I mentioned everyone it would be 1000 tags.. but Thank you to the cast, crew, producers and studio,” Ruby captioned her post, that included a highlight video. “It wasn’t an easy decision but those who know, know..”

She added, “I didn’t want to not acknowledge everyone involved and how big this was for TV and for our community. I have stayed silent because that’s my choice for now but know I adore you all. I’m sure next season will be amazing also. Xxx *hangs up cowl and cape.”

Reports have suggested that Ruby left because of the physical demands and that she possibly wasn’t the easiest to work with.

Batwoman will return for season two on The CW.

Here's the Reason Why Ruby Rose Left 'Batwoman' (Report)

A source is speaking out on the real reason why Ruby Rose left the title role of Batwoman in The CW show of the same name.

The departure was apparently a mutual decision, and not the 34-year-old actress’ sole decision.

“It wasn’t 100-percent her decision,” a source told TV Line. “It was a breakup. She wasn’t happy working on the show, and did that make her fun to work with? No. So everyone decided it would be in the best interests of the show, and for all concerned, if they parted ways. It just wasn’t a good fit.”

Apparently, Ruby didn’t like the “long hours demanded of a lead TV role” and didn’t enjoy living in Vancouver, Canada, where the show was filmed.

The show’s second season is set to debut in January 2021.

Another source spoke out and said this was NOT the reason Ruby decided to leave the show.

Ruby Rose's Decision to Leave 'Batwoman' Had 'Nothing to Do' with This

Ruby Rose made the shocking announcement that she’s leaving The CW’s Batwoman, where she stars as the title character.

“I have made the very difficult decision to not return to Batwoman next season,” the 34-year-old actress said in a statement. “This was not a decision I made lightly as I have the utmost respect for the cast, crew and everyone involved with the show in both Vancouver and in Los Angeles. I am beyond appreciative to Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Caroline Dries for not only giving me this incredible opportunity, but for welcoming me into the DC universe they have so beautifully created. Thank you Peter Roth and Mark Pedowitz and the teams at Warner Bros. and The CW who put so much into the show and always believed in me. Thank you to everyone who made season one a success – I am truly grateful.”

Well, fans have been speculating that Ruby may have left because of an injury that she suffered last year that almost left her paralyzed. She had herniated two discs doing stunts, and it came close to severing her spinal chord.

A source told Variety that her exit from the show “had nothing to do with her health or injury.”
