Following the departure of titular lead Ruby Rose and the subsequent addition of a new lead character The CW’s show Batwoman has now cast Wallis Day to take over the role of Kate Kane (AKA Batwoman) that was established by Rose in season one.
As revealed at the end of Sunday’s episode, the character of Kane was revealed to be alive yet unrecognisable due to injuries she sustained in a plane crash at the beginning of season two. She is shown bandaged and being held hostage.
The British-born Day will play this “altered version” of Kane moving forward.
To be clear, Kane is no longer Batwoman – who is now played by Javicia Leslie, the first Black actress to play the character in a live-action drama. Leslie plays Ryan Wilder who took over the superhero role in season two.
