I am following a brazilian Twitter/instagram page since before the show even started.
They provided a lot of good infos, often before others have confirmed it.

Today I read (translated with google translator from portugese to english):
A cast call for the second season of #Batwoman is unlucky and apparently someone else will wear the heroine's cloak in place of Kate Kane! Check out Ryan Wilder's description (working name):
RYAN WILDER - Woman, in her 20s, any ethnicity. Ryan Wilder is about to become Batwoman. She's adorable, messy, a little funny and untamed. She is also nothing like Kate Kane, the woman who wore the costume before her. With no one in her life to care for her, Ryan spent years as a drug delivery girl, dodging the Gotham police and masking her pain with bad habits. Today, retired and sober, Ryan lives in a van with his plant. A girl who would steal milk for a stray cat and who could kill you with her bare hands, Ryan is the most dangerous type of fighter: highly skilled and wildly undisciplined. Lesbian assumed. Athletic. Raw. Impetuous. Fallible. And it is definitely not the stereotype of the American heroine.

Well, I really hope that someone has made this up! :o :o :o
That would totally change everything!
If Kate wouldn't be around anymore...what's with Alice, Jacob and Mary?
All these relationsships to Kate would be gone....and I would think that would be a damn shame.
Oh man, that would be a drastic gamechanger!
Please, let this be only a rumor!
The comic fans would go completely nuts...and not only them!
If they would do that....I am rather sure the show would be cancelled after season 2.

A tweet from Caroline Dries:

Well, that sounds that Kate Kane doesn't die and rather disappears for some reason!


Whew! What a relief! There's still hope! :D Well, that's partial good news at least.
Altho, I don't understand why they don't just recast this season - but, hopefully, they'll bring her back later in season 2 and not wait til season 3 (or later).

Which leaves the door open for her character to return.

Wow, the last audition tape I linked this morning is now private like I thought it should be from the beginning ;)
-----------------------------------------



BatButchDallas:
It's such a disappointing turn of events to lose Ruby Rose as Batwoman. I don't know what season 2 will hold, but with all of the speculation about the characters/actresses, etc. I feel as though I'm losing my enthusiasm for the show. I don't want to, but I'm concerned about the direction the character and representation are heading. I recognize there are a number of industry challenges to navigate, but I had really high hopes for the show, and it seems like there is only a lot of chaos. :( I have to take a wait and see approach, I'm a huge Batwoman fan, spend thousands of dollars every year in fandom, and follow a number of the CW shows. I really want this to succeed, but am fearful there is too much to overcome. I loved Ruby Rose as Batwoman, but would rather see it re-cast, then launched with another character.


Like I may have said here and there all these speculations driving me crazy right now. More and more rumors.
I need some facts to have an idea of season 2.
I hope they announce the new Batwoman really soon.
And yeah, right now it's a lot of chaos I agree. I would have really prefered that they deliver some answers after Ruby left and the new Ryan Wilder casting sheet popped up.
I guess they are not 100% determined on a storyline just yet, and are leaving some back doors open.
For example the fate of Kate Kane: Even if she gets killed in the first new episode....perhaps there is still another version of her on another earth. As I understand it there isn't just earth prime left.

@Athena69

I think Caroline Dries did a FANTASTIC JOB with Season 1 and respect her tremendously. I just want to drive home how impassioned fans are about Kate Kane and that we respect that Ruby left and can accept the recast. I won't see a white elephant. We the fans still overwhelmingly want Kate Kane as Batwoman. As Vancouver has yet to reopen, nothing has been committed to film. Anything is still possible.

I am 100% down for a new Dynamic Duo, as long as Kate keeps the cowl.

But... at the end of the day, I will give season 2 the open-minded opportunity Caroline has earned with whatever direction she takes the show.

Yeah, but what bothers me, that the one who uploaded it did it under her name, with a picture included. So, from your 3 examples it could only be the "hacker version". Based on the details, I'd say Natalie created the separate channel/account/whatever, because she'd did not want it on her main channel, and a fan found it by accident.

Yeah could be, but why would she made that video publicly available in the first place? You can set those videos on unlisted or private. And I wonder why uploading such a video on such a site in the first place? You could just send the file over to the ones who want it. There are a lot of possibilities.
But well, perhaps I will ask her that as soon she got the role! :o ;)

Petition has gone past 500 now, wonder if it'll hit 1000
Originally, I wasn't going to sign, because I wanted to respect Caroline's decision and give the new character a shot. But the more I think about it, the more I think we need Kate Kane back, mostly because Kate was such a driving force for the gay community. Not that another character couldn't embody that, but to have another character try to be as passionate about the subject, would just seem so fake.

Jemma Hendricks ...
Yeah, I couldn't even watch the whole thing!

@Bratty_bat

Fingers crossed it gets Dries'and Berlanti's attention. I can't help this is a huge PR push to get buy in support for recasting Kate. The new character description is total sidekick. I would be definitely down for a Dynamic Duo.

And the next audition tape, again on vimeo, this time seemingly on the real channel of the actress(!) (not a very good idea):
Jemma Hendricks, unknown age, very little acting experience, and....5'1 foot "tall":



-
Well, Natalie Sharp was muuuuch better in her audition in my opinion.
And with her stats, Jemma don't have a real chance I think.

Hmh, on the other hand, they wouldn't let her audition if she wouldn't be a possible candidate
Or, the CW sent out a general casting call with a sample page of dialog to audition with, and anyone can audition. Clearly, they don't already have someone in mind, or they wouldn't have put out the call. I think Sharp's just throwing her hat into the ring, not necessarily being asked to do so. I guess Caroline and team will have to judge whether she meets all their criteria. Altho, having a current character on Flash, I kinda think her chances are pretty slim.

Hartley Sawyer ... was just fired
Wow. Well, just goes to prove: nothing is private if it's posted on social media! I don't know if you're question was rhetorical or not, comic fan, but under the circumstances, I think they should just recast his character, since he's not the lead.

OT but my thoughts are related.

Hartley Sawyer who plays Ralph Dibny/Elongated Man on The Flash since being introduced in season 4 was just fired over past tweets from a few years ago that were racist, homophobic and misogynistic

https://tvline.com/2020/06/08/the-flash-hartley-sawyer-fired-season-7-racist-homophobic-tweets/

This is obviously a very different situation than the circumstances of Ruby leaving Batwoman but Batwoman related,the question that popped into my mind first,do they recast Ralph since they did just introduce Sue(his future wife) this past season and had long term plans there for the two characters or do they pull a Batwoman and replace Ralph with a new character that can also maybe stretch?

I just hope that this leak doesn't decreased her chances to get the role.
After all I would say they could do a lot worse. I actually downloaded the video from vimeo, as I had the strong feeling it wouldn't stay there. ;)
Her only "problem" could be that she seemingly isn't a lesbian, when I look at her Instagram pictures.
Ok, unless, she has a really weird relationsship to a brother or so.... :D :D :D

So how does such an audition video gets leaked like that?

Could be any number of ways. Maybe it was leaked by someone on the inside at CW who wasn't supposed to. Or some hacker is doing a deep search, looking for interesting things to (steal,exploit,whatever). Or maybe something as simple as a fan entered the right search criteria and stumbled upon it. Personally, I would have included a little more security on a file like that to prevent exactly that from happening. But, given that Caroline has already said that they are going forward without Kate, I don't think there's that much damage control that needs to be done. I think you did the right thing, Siggi, and letting her know. :D

I informed .... whoever owned that channel.....about the audition video being widely visible on Vimeo.
I thought it wasn't the plan that everyone could actually see it and certainly some folks wouldn't be too happy about it.
Now the video isn't available anymore..... :o


*edit* I just found out that Natalie has an official account on vimeo with 40+ videos.
That account with her name that uploaded the audition video only had that one video.
So I guess whoever uploaded/leaked that video got into problems. Oh man....

Sharp reminds me a lot of a young(er) Katee Sackhoff. Yes, that's intended as a huge complement. However, I did not care for Sunshine on the Flash. Still interesting.

Yeah, she definitely has that "Katee Sackhoff" vibe, doesn't she? :D
I was going to say something in my previous post about how two-dimensional the character of Sunshine was - but then, she was just a hired gun, albeit super-powered, who's now trapped in the mirror-verse.
