CW art promo removes Ruby Rose as Batwoman, replaces image with a bat signal after her exit from show
. In its recent schedule graphic, CW, which always has the close-up of the faces of their lead actors, removed the face of Rose
A couple of days ago, it was announced that Ruby Rose had put aside her cape and stepped down as Batwoman from the CW series. In its recent schedule graphic, CW, which always has the close-up of the faces of their lead actors, removed the face of Rose, to be replaced by a bat signal. Meanwhile, no other changes have been made to the schedule, which also includes images of Superman (Tyler Hoechlin), Archie Andrews (KJ Apa), The Flash (Grant Gustin), and more.
The earlier CW presentation, where the schedule for next year was officially announced, was published before the season finale of 'Batwoman'. After the finale, Rose and Warner Bros declared that they had decided to part ways, before the second season.
Fans are still trying to understand the reason behind Rose's exit. In a post, Rose wrote that it wasn't an 'easy' decision to make. "Thank you everyone for coming on this journey. If I mentioned everyone it would be 1000 tags…but thank you to the cast, crew, producers and studio. It wasn’t an easy decision but those who know, know… I didn’t want to not acknowledge everyone involved and how big this was for TV and for our community. I have stayed silent because that’s my choice for now but know I adore you all. I’m sure next season will be amazing also.”
When she exited the show, Rose had said in a statement. In her statement, Rose said: "I have made the very difficult decision to not return to Batwoman next season. This was not a decision I made lightly as I have the utmost respect for the cast, crew, and everyone involved with the show in both Vancouver and in Los Angeles. I am beyond appreciative of Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Caroline Dries for not only giving me this incredible opportunity but for welcoming me into the DC universe they have so beautifully created. Thank you, Peter Roth and Mark Pedowitz, and the teams at Warner Bros and The CW who put so much into the show and always believed in me. Thank you to everyone who made season one a success – I am truly grateful."
Meanwhile, CW is looking to see who can be cast as the new 'Batwoman' star.
