Showrunner Caroline Dries explains why she let Kate Kane die
Recently, Caroline spoke about the casting of Kate Kane on ‘Batwoman’ Season 2. She told the media persons why she chose not to recast the ‘Batwoman’ Season 1 character Katy Kane that was earlier played by actor Ruby Rose. They have created a new character, a new ‘Batwoman’ for season 2.
On being prompted by “Entertainment Weekly”, Caroline talked about her experience during the making of the series and why she ended up with an entirely new character for ‘Batwoman’ instead of keeping Kate Kane alive. She told them that it didn’t feel like the right move for her because it felt weird, awkward, and unearned, so she decided on creating an entirely new character instead of recasting Kate Kane.
Caroline added how she wasn’t opposed to recasting the character of Kate Kane at all on Batwoman. However, doing a swap out without any story motivation behind would have felt weird to her. It, according to her, was asking too much of the audience.
The showrunner continued saying she didn’t know if the audience would agree with it. Most importantly, if they were to have all seasons of the series, it would feel like season 1 was the anomaly which they didn’t want it to feel like, Caroline mentioned.
She wanted it to feel like one piece of a story and though not opposed to the idea of a new actor playing Kate Kane on ‘Batwoman’, she wasn’t in the favour of making the story look like nothing happened to Kate in season 2. As the creative lead of the show, it was hard for her to digest that.
Will Ruby Rose make a comeback on ‘Batwoman’ Season 2?
In the first segment of ‘Batwoman’, Kate Kane was on the way to the national city. Her plane crashed with only her batsuit being found among the debris. However, fans did not lose hope since the body was not found. They thought that the character might be resurrected in case the actor decides to come back. However, Ruby Rose won’t be seen any more on ‘Batwoman’ Season 2 as the actor dropped out of the show at the end of the season. The reasons relating to the exit of the actor from the show is still very vague, though she said she’s dropping out due to injuries.
Now the new character named Ryan Wilder (played by Javicia Leslie) will take up the ‘Batwoman’ franchise ahead because Kate Kane is dead forever.
