I figured The Doorman had to be filmed pre- Batwoman, as she basically got zero recoup time from surgery before going back to Batwoman and then Covid hit before they finished filming the season.

I may watch later on VOD if power doesn't go out. Unfortunately, we have yet another hurricane heading for the Gulf Coast.

I already saw "The Doorman".
Pretty good action flick, not always realistic, not always logical...but quite a good movie after all.
Pretty sure it was made prior to Batwoman, it was a long time in post production for whatever reason.

Back then she had pretty much the same haircut as Kate, nowadays her hair is even shorter than mine.....:o

Life after Batwoman...

The Doorman starring Ruby Rose is being released as a VOD today. Due to the theater situation associated with Covid-19, it is going the VOD/streaming route.

I am not sure when she made this movie... between the Batwoman schedule, her back surgery and Covid-19, I wouldn't have thought it possible. Perhaps it was filmed prior to Batwoman?

Well, that is her version of the story at least....
We will never get the full story I guess.

Yeah, I figured the reason she left the show had to be health-related. Especially since she was favoring her right side throughout that final episode (maybe a re-injury?). Thanks for posting that link, @comic fan

TV Line has new comments on why Ruby Rose left Batwoman.

https://tvline.com/2020/08/11/ruby-rose-batwoman-exit-season-2-back-injury-surgery/

Last fall, Rose shared via Instagram a (graphic) video of said surgery, which fixed two herniated discs that she says “were close to severing my spinal cord.” Just 10 days later, she told EW.com, she was back to work as a costumed crimefighter.

“Being the lead of a superhero show is tough. Being the lead in anything is tough,” Rose cops in the new interview. “But I think, in that particular instance, it was a lot more difficult because I was still recovering from my surgery. I had my surgery and then 10 days later I went to work, which maybe wasn’t the best idea. Most people take about a month or three off before they return to work.”

When Batwoman wrapped its freshman run several episodes early due to the pandemic/production shutdown, Rose said that the time then spent in quarantine gave all involved time to think. “It was a great opportunity to have a dialogue about a lot of things [with the producers],” she said. “I respect them so much and they’ve been so respectful to me.”

Looking to her own future, Rose said, “I would definitely do [TV] again. I just think that it was also time for me to take a break to fully heal and then return.” And as for the future adventures of Batwoman, to be played by Javicia Leslie (God Friended Me) as a new character named Ryan Wilder? “She seems fantastic,” Rose said of her successor, who is bisexual and the first Black actress to play a live-action Batwoman. “Honestly, I was so proud and so happy when I was told who would be replacing me…. I’m definitely going to watch the next season as well and see how it all comes together.”

Perhaps I should just pick an actress and say "she is reportedly being eyed to become to new Batwoman" on a post over at my Blog.
:D :D :D

I read somewhere the height for the new character was mentioned as 5' 3"
At the height, there's no freakin' way she can fit in the Batsuit! And given Batwoman uses mostly hand-to-hand, that suit would need an exoskeleton to convince me that someone that short could take down someone the size of the Executioner!
As a comparison, Ruby is 5'7", Melissa is 5'8", Chyler Leigh is 5'6.5", Caity Lotz is 5'6", Katie Cassidy is 5'7.7", Juliana Harkavy is 5'8", Willa Holland is 5'6", Katherine McNamara is the shortest at 5'4.5" ... I know with martial arts, it's not the size or muscle that's important, but I think any shorter, and they're asking us to not just suspend our disbelief, but throw it completely down the disposal!

I know I read somewhere the height for the new character was mentioned as 5' 3" and thought it was odd. But, I'm not sure which one... as I have read so many rehashes of it. I remember because I said said to myself definitely "sidekick" when I read it.

Like, i said previously, I am still in denial they will actually replace Kate as Batwoman... perhaps the new character will attempt to step into Batwoman's boots when she is sidelined, making the reports true but misleading? Too much at stake to dump Kate.

^ I neber heard anything about a desired height in the casting call.
In my opinion the new Batwoman should be at least 5'7. (Like Natalie sharp as she is 5'8)
It just looks better if the vigilante has a certain height when she battles all those goons and villains.

@Siggi... didn't the casting call say they were looking for an actress around 5' 3"? I remember reading that somewhere... which made it sound like a sidekick, as opposed to Batwoman. Not that a hero can't be short, but.... I like this actress quite a bit. She has been in a highly publicized heterosexual relationship. As far as I know she only plays LGBTQ on Riverdale, not in real life. But, not certain. Again, she'd probably make a great addition to form a new Dynamic Duo... but definitely not Batwoman. In my opinion...

Yes, it could be click bait fodder.

She is way too small for that role (5'2, 1,60m).
I wonder if some of these articles are just an invention from those pages to get clicks.

^ It took them long enough to find out about this :p
I am following Wallis on Twitter and Instagram and was amused one week ago about the wikipedia thingy.
Thanks for sharing, I forgot to do it.

The original picture did look a bit airbrushed.

In a move that shouldn't surprise anyone... CW replaced the Batwoman cover art for it fall schedule, removing the Ruby Rose image.

Here's a video that sums up a lot of the posts already shared here that makes us think there's more going on than we know:

This video is just more rumor-mongering - I have no idea who these two yahoos are, but they don't know anything more than we do and are just espousing their own opinions. It doesn't matter why Ruby is no longer Batwoman, the decision is already made (regardless of who made it), we weren't there, so we have no right to judge. Let's move on, shall we?


Entertainment Tonight - and its Canadian affiliate - is a very credible and legitimate news agency, and so that video carries weight even though it's less actual news reporting and more discussion about what we know or don't know.
