Stephanie Beatriz Should Be Cast As The New Batwoman – Here’s Why
With the news that Ruby Rose has left Batwoman, fans have started thinking about who should take over the role, and we think it should be Stephanie Beatriz.
I was sad to hear that Rose was leaving Batwoman and slightly confused.
I don’t think the show is one of The CW’s best, but I did like Rose in the role and I thought the show had potential.
However, now that she’s left, people are thinking about who could replace her, and there’s only really one name on that list as far as I’m concerned.
I think there’s only one woman who could play the role perfectly, and that’s Stephanie Beatriz.
Beatriz is most well-known for playing Detective Rosa Diaz on the brilliant show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Stephanie Beatriz is perfect for Batwoman
Beatriz has been kicking some serious butt on that show for years.
She’s already proven she has the acting chops to play the role of Batwoman.
I would argue that she’s actually a far better actress than Rose (don’t tell Rose I said that).
Beatriz has proven on Brooklyn Nine-Nine that she can act and also has done some serious stunt-work on the show over the years.
She’s also a name who would bring in a new audience.
People love Beatriz and I’m pretty sure Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans would watch Batwoman if they knew she was playing the lead.
Batwoman needs to be played by an actress of the LGBTQ community
The CW made it very clear that they wanted to cast a member of the LGBTQ community in the role of Batwoman.
It’s a bit part of the character and Beatriz is bisexual and a proud member of the LGBTQ community.
She literally ticks all the boxes.
She can act, she can do action, she also looks the part and she’s a member of the LGBTQ community.
Beatriz would also put her own spin on the role which I think is very important.
Rose was pretty dark as Batwoman, which was important, but I think Beatriz could also bring some much need levity to the role as well.
Beatriz is a terrific actress

Finally, there’s the fact that fans have been fan-casting Beatriz in the role ever since Batwoman was announced.
She must have been one of the actresses The CW looked at when casting the role.
Since it was revealed that Rose was leaving the role, Beatriz has also been pretty active on social media.
She’s been joking about having started reading all the comics and has died her hair red for the role.
It genuinely seems as though she wants the role, so I think The CW should just give it to her.
