The Batwoman series is growing its cast as production on the pilot is approaching and we now know THREE of the supporting players on the show! Deadline broke the news that Meagan Tandy, Camrus Johnson and Nicole Kang have been cast in the role of Sophie Moore, Luke Fox (better known as the hero Batwing and the son of Lucius Fox) and Mary Hamilton. The show describes these characters as follows by Warner Bros. TV and The CW:
“SOPHIE MOORE: After graduating from military academy, Sophie rose through the ranks to become a high-level private security agent and one of Gotham’s staunchest protectors. Despite her bite and regimented outlook, Sophie has a soft side, illuminated by Kate Kane’s return.
LUKE FOX: A Dark Knight loyalist and son of Wayne’s R&D director Lucius Fox, Luke works to keep Wayne Tower secure in his boss’s absence. While Luke considers himself the guardian of all things Batman — specifically his symbol — he also recognizes the city’s need for a new hero.
MARY HAMILTON: Excitable, talkative, and an influencer-in-the-making, Mary is Kate Kane’s step-sister and polar opposite. But what Mary lacks in a filter, she makes up for with her compassion for Gotham’s underserved communities, proving she has more in common with Kate than she thinks.”
What’s interesting re: Kong’s Mary Hamilton is that they used a piece of artwork for Kate Kane’s cousin Bette Kane a.k.a. Flamebird. Could it mean that they are intending to make her a Bette Kane-esque character who could end up being Flamebird on the series? Only time will found out.
“Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope. Based on the characters from DC.”
