Vanessa Morgan in Talks to Become 'Batwoman' Replacement (Report)

Vanessa Morgan could possibly be the new character for Batwoman!

The 28-year-old actress is reportedly being considered by producers to take on the new role of Ryan Wilder, according to a new report from The Cinema Spot.

She is reportedly set to audition and do a screen test.

The news comes just over a week after Vanessa called out Riverdale for not properly representing black people, and vowed to only take future roles that do properly represent the black community.

Riverdale boss Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa spoke out in response to Vanessa‘s tweets and said the show will do better.

If Vanessa were to land the Batwoman role, she would have to leave Riverdale for season five when it returns. The upcoming season will be making a time jump into the future, so her character could be written out that way to make way for her to lead the other CW show.

“We hear Vanessa. We love Vanessa. She’s right. We’re sorry and we make the same promise to you that we did to her. We will do better to honor her and the character she plays. As well as all of our actors and characters of color,” Roberto wrote in a post on Instagram. “Change is happening and will continue to happen. Riverdale will get bigger, not smaller. Riverdale will be part of the movement, not outside it.”

Roberto added, “All of the Riverdale writers made a donation to @BLMLA, but we know where the work must happen for us. In the writers’ room.”

Vanessa joined Riverdale in season two and she became a main star in season three.
