After announcing the highly anticipated pilot order, The CW Network is adding a new member to the cast for Batwoman starring Ruby Rose. Check out what’s next for the DC Comics heroine after the crossover event with The Flash, Supergirl, and Arrow.
When Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) wake up, the duo realize they have swapped bodies with each other. The two set off to find out what disturbed the timeline to cause such a shift. After Barry and Oliver realize they need Supergirl (Melissa Benoist)’s help, their mission sends them towards Gotham City.
SPOILERS AHEAD! Here are 5 reasons why we love the Batwoman cast:
5) Rachel Skarsten!
According to Deadline, actress Rachel Skarsten (Wynonna Earp) has been cast as a the big bad. We’re excited to see Skarsten as the villainous lead!
Karsten has been cast as Alice, who’s been dubbed as Batwoman’s Joker. Alice happens to be the leader of her Lewis Carroll–inspired Wonderland Gang. Maniacal and charming, Alice’s mission to undermine Gotham’s sense of security.
3) The Supporting Cast!
Actress Meagan Tandy will play Sophie Moore, a military academy graduate, who also works in Gotham. Actress Nicole Kang joins as Kate Kane’s excitable step-sister, Mary Hamilton. Actor Camrus Johnson plays Lucius Fox’s son, Luke, who has been guarding Bruce Wayne’s estate while he’s away.
2) The Pilot Order!
As we previously mentioned, The CW is definitely moving forward with a Batwoman series. The CW drama comes from showrunner/writer Caroline Dries (The Vampire Diaries) and executive producer Greg Berlanti (Titans). Dries will executive produce alongside Berlanti and his Warner Bros. TV-based Berlanti Productions heads, Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns.
1) David Nutter Is Directing!
David Nutter is a really big deal in the television industry because the Emmy-winning Game of Thrones director helmed pilots for The Flash, Arrow, Supernatural, The X-Files, and Deception. Notice how all all of these pilots have gone to series. Plus, you had me at X-Files!
Elseworlds can be seen on the CW app or On Demand.
