While The CW is reportedly eyeing Vanessa Morgan for the role of Ryan Wilder in Batwoman, that doesn’t mean its search is over. A newly surfaced audition tape revealed another actress is vying for the role, and also teased Kate Kane’s fate.
An audition tape from actress Jemma Hendricks has surfaced online, revealing what happened to Ruby Rose’s Kane. In the video, it is implied that the character has died since the events of Season 1, and now Wilder is running around in the Batwoman suit. Wilder has seemingly stolen the suit from Luke Fox who is trying to get it back.
The audition tape also revealed some new details about Wilder’s character. It seems that she has taken on the mantle of Batwoman to try and avenge her mother, who was killed by Jonathan Crane, aka Scarecrow. The video goes on to feature Hendricks training to be Batwoman with who appears to be Luke Fox guiding her. She seems to struggle with the role a bit, so it will be interesting to see how she grows into it during the season.
