That’s crazy! I’ll keep watching but it’s going to be weird just suddenly having a new Kate.

Whoa…

I honestly can’t blame Ruby Rose after all the harassment she received and the injury she suffered on set.

To say this is a huge shock is such an understatement. It doesn’t even feel real. Ruby did an absolutely amazing job as Kate and it’s so heartbreaking to see that she’s leaving. I’m sure she has a valid reason, which I’ll be incredibly curious to find out, but this one still really hurts. I don’t know how the show’s gonna recover from losing such a perfectly cast lead like this. Wishing her nothing but the best :broken_heart:

I’m concerned about what might be the cause.

The show may still survive. The Superboy TV series not only managed to go on after a recasting, but it arguably improved after losing its first star.

I’m in disbelief. Alice is my favorite part of the show, but I really enjoyed seeing Kate’s start as a vigilante. She wasn’t perfect. She made mistakes. But she learned from those mistakes and grew as both a person and as a hero.

I have no idea how the hell they’re going to approach this storyline-wise.

@AlexanderKnox That is a great point about Superboy. Gerard Christopher ended up being an amazing Superboy when he took over in the second season.

Very sad and troubling news regarding Rose and the future of Batwoman. I’ve absolutely loved watching her in the cape and cowl and will miss her engaging interpretation of the character. Thank you so very much for your passion and performance R.R. It was a fantastic ride while it lasted. :cry:

I mean, storyline-wise the simplest solution would be to just recast and carry on like nothing happened. Maybe do an inside joke where Barry sees Kate again and goes “dang it, time travel!”

@CaptThunder001 That would be amazing!

I think I missed when she got injured? Was she injured doing a stunt or something?

I’m in shock. I wish her well and I’m sure the show will find a way to move on with a new Kate Kane, but right now it’s hard to picture anyone else in the role.

Dang still have to see the finale so I’m not looking up much but wow. Well I wish her the best. She was awesome as the first Batwoman. Wonder how they’ll explain. Probably just move on and have to joke as @CaptThunder001 said. Definitely feel like something they would do. But there’s still a while before S2 starts. Maybe she’ll want to return.

It’s tweets from “fans” like those replying to that Variety tweet is part of the reason something like this happens. I don’t understand the utter hate and bile some people expressed when the initial trailers dropped that caused Ruby to get off social media originally. If you don’t like something, move along. Maybe it’s just me but I really don’t get this type of culture, it’s basically bullying and trolling, all behind relative safety of online anonymity. Would these people ever say this to her face? I’m sorry, I’m just very sad, but I hope Ruby knows she did an amazing job as Batwoman, she is perfect.

This is just heartbreaking news to me. I loved her as Kate and Batwoman. I’m sad to see her go.

I’m so shellshocked by this that I can’t even figure out how to react.

Yes, during last year sometime, and she had very serious surgery. Thankfully, all went well.
