The Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow co-creator revealed how he really feels about the star leaving the Arrowverse series, calling it a “great creative opportunity” in a recent interview with Collider.
“I was talking to one of the Batwoman writers the other day, and we were saying how this is a great creative opportunity. I think there’ll be people who come to the show, quite frankly, just to see how the writers choose to handle this,” Marc explained.

“I’m a big believer that any time you face a production challenge, and sometimes it’s in cast while sometimes it’s just logistics, in that challenge, lies a creative opportunity.”
He added that he’s also spoken to Beth Schwartz, who’s served as a writer and producer on Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow, about the situation as he admitted that many productions are in the same boat right now after shutting down filming due to the ongoing pandemic.
“We were talking about how, once production presumes posts the pandemic, how are we going to work with all these different limitations?” he said.
“And it’s the exact same thing, which is that, in those limitations and in those challenges lie the chance to do something new and different, and come up with a clever creative solution. That, to me, is the fun part of the job.”
Ruby recently announced her decision to leave her role as Kate Kane/Batwoman after only one season, as she said in a statement that she would not be back for season 2.
It’s been confirmed that the role will be recast with another LGBTQ+ star playing the character.
Batwoman airs on Sundays at 8/7c on The CW in the US. It airs on E4 in the UK.
