There are a lot of names being thrown into the hat to take the cape and cowl on The CW’s ‘Batwoman‘ show. The latest name to pop up is Riverdale’s Vanessa Morgan. Only time will tell if this plays out, a screen test may be in the works though. What do you think about Vanessa Morgan as Batwoman? Let us know AFTER THE JUMP.
We found out last month that Ruby Rose had parted ways with Batwoman, and will not be returning for the already renewed second season. We were told that The CW had already begun the search for another actress to suit-up as Gotham’s Scarlet Knight – but they won’t be playing Kate Kane!
Showrunner Caroline Dries recently confirmed that another character named Ryan Wilder (this may still be a placeholder) would inherit the cape and cowl, and Riverdale actress Vanessa Morgan is said to be in the running to suit-up as the new Batwoman.
According to The Cinema Spot, The CW is interested in Morgan for the role, and she’s expected to screen test at some point. Of course, even if this is accurate, there’s nothing to say she’ll actually land the part.
Morgan made headlines over the weekend when she called out Riverdale for sidelining black characters by depicting them only as sidekicks.
