A since-deleted leaked casting notice on Reddit has revealed that a brand-new character named Ryan Wilder will play Batwoman, according to Decider and confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter. The character of Ryan Wilder is described as "female, Mid-late 20s, any ethnicity." The casting description also states that Ryan is “likable, messy, a little goofy and untamed. She’s also nothing like Kate Kane, the woman who wore the batsuit before her... With no one in her life to keep her on track, Ryan spent years as a drug-runner, dodging the GCPD and masking her pain with bad habits. A girl who would steal milk for an alley cat could also kill you with her bare hands, Ryan is the most dangerous type of fighter: highly skilled and wildly undisciplined. An out lesbian. Athletic. Raw. Passionate. Fallible. And very much not your stereotypical All-American hero.” Rose played Bruce Wayne's cousin Kate Kate in Season 1 of Batwoman before announcing she was stepping down on May 19.
