Batwoman Casting

Following the exit of Batwoman star Ruby Rose, The CW sent out a casting call for a new lead, but NOT for a new Kate Kane. Instead, The CW will cast someone for a character named Ryan Wilder, who will take up the mantle of Batwoman but not the mantle of Kate Kane. It is unclear whether this is a code name for an existing DC character or whether this is a new character entirely.

On Saturday June 1st, two astronauts blasted off into space wearing new astronaut suits created by one of the most prolific superhero costume creators, Jose Fernandez. Fernandez was responsible for Black Panther’s costume, Abe Sapien in Hellbow, and Ben Affleck’s Batman cowl, which for the first time in Batman costume history allowed him to turn his head. Just like Batman’s suit, Fernandez was able to create the Space Suit helmets with an articulated neck piece allowing astronauts better vision.
