The buzz surrounding Batwoman and the fate of Kate Kane after Ruby Rose’s departure from the series continues. The latest buzz involves a rumor that Kate Kane will be killed off on the series at the start of season two. The rumor has gained some traction online, and that forced Caroline Dries to release a statement to shut down the rumor.
Per Deadline, she went to her Twitter account and said the following about the fate of Kate Kane on The CW series:
“As a lesbian who’s been working as a writer for the past fifteen years, I’m well aware of the “Bury Your Gays” trope and I have no interest in participating in it. That’s why it’s important to me as the showrunner to clarify any misinformation out there about Kate Kane and recasting Batwoman. Like you, I love Kate Kane – she’s the reason I wanted to do the show. We’ll never erase her. In fact, her disappearance will be one of the mysteries of season two. I don’t want to give away any of our surprises, but to all our devoted fans, please know that LGBTQ+ justice is at the very core of what Batwoman is and we have no intention of abandoning that.”
Fans will need to wait until Batwoman returns in January 2021 to find out how the exit of Kate Kane is handled.
What do you think? Should Kate Kane be killed off? Will you continue to watch the series with a new Batwoman?
I will be shocked and surprised if the Batwoman writer really decides to killed off Batwoman replace her with a new actress. I am wondering what will happen to Batwoman the comics book. Will the comics book change the comic book to star the new Batwoman. Look at what happened to Supergirl the comics. The comic book now look like the TV series.
Here’s another one.
The show almost left Ruby Rose paralyzed, without even addressing the issues involved that led to that any actress replacing her and all current crew members should consider getting a better, safer job.
Maybe kate will return as a transman lol that way they keep the LGBT theme while making it easy to recast the character.
(this is just a joke, probably won’t happen)
I’d be fine if they just recast Kate. I like the character. Wouldn’t be the first time DCTV has recast a major character and the recast turned out to be even better than the original. Although, replacing Ruby will be damn hard.
Golden rule for most things in life. Don’t close a door that you can’t open later on when it can potentially be of use.
I am interested in seeing a new Batwoman, I do not mind if Kate disappears for a while, maybe make a quick return to say, you did well in my absence, Gotham is yours now. Bring in
Eiza González as the new Batwoman, I saw her in Bloodshot and she did a VERY good job and proves she can be a bad ass.
No, she shouldn’t be killed off. Let’s sign up on this.
That’s pointless they already said they aren’t going to kill her
What’s pointless? Having a new character as the new Batwoman is a mistake. Don’t you agree?
While I am not fond of Kate Kane as a lesbian, I love the character. I love the banter with her father. I think Kate makes the show and I like Ruby Rose as Kate. I hope it will continue to be successful but I am afraid it won’t be since Ruby left. I am glad they are not recasting her or killing her off. That leaves the door open for a possible return in the future.
I think Kate Kane will return sometime in season 2. So they actually have to cast two Batwomen. Ryan and her. And of course I will continue to watch this show, I love it!
Without Kate Kane the rest of the cast does not make sense with the new Batwoman, so if they want the show to make any kind of sense they have to recast the character of Kate Kane or just reboot the whole series with a whole new cast and storyline. I personally think that Jacqueline Toboni (Trubel from Grimm) would make a great Kate Kane/Batwoman, she has a similar look and has played a similar badass character.
