She is also one of Gotham’s most ardent protectors. Sophie is described as having "bite" and a "regimented outlook." Proving there are always two sides to a person, Sophie has a softer one, which is brought to life by the return of Kate Kane.
Next up is the casting of Luke Cage’s Camrus Johnson. He joins the Batwoman pilot in the role of Luke Fox. Luke is the son of Wayne’s Research and Development director Lucius Fox. (Morgan Freeman played Lucius Fox in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy.)
Lucius Fox's son Luke has taken on the role as the "guardian of all things Batman," with specific attention paid to Batman’s symbol. At the same time, Luke recognizes the need for his city to have a new hero. Could the Batwoman pilot see Luke become Batwing? That line seems to open the door to the possibility.
Fans of Netflix’s Luke Cage will remember Camrus Johnson for his recurring role on the series. He played Torre. He also stars in Hulu’s There’s…Johnny, as pictured above.
The third and final role cast is YOU’s Nicole Kang as Kate Kane’s step-sister, Mary Hamilton. In the report, Mary is said to be "excitable" and "talkative." The bubbly-sounding character is also an "influencer-in-the-making," something that hints Mary may be a social media maven.
Mary is also described as being the total opposite of Kate. What they do have in common is "compassion for Gotham’s underserved communities." All of which sounds like the groundwork for a connection Mary can build on with Kate, a.k.a. Batwoman.
Fans did not have to wait for a Batwoman solo series to get their first glimpse at Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane. The character made her Arrow-verse debut in the TV franchise’s crossover event entitled “Elseworlds.” This casting news will undoubtedly excite fans anxious for the latest update on the pilot.
Having cast three more pivotal roles, the Batwoman pilot is coming together. For now, fans must wait for word on whether the pilot will get picked up to series. Some fans have been left disappointed in the past, with others receiving positive news. Since The CW has already given Batwoman a high-profile debut, all signs seem hopeful.
If Batwoman gets picked up, it will premiere on The CW. The Arrow-verse will be going strong throughout the midseason with new episodes.
