Breaking Bat News: Dougray Scott Cast as Kate Kane's Father on Batwoman Series


After a high profile week of gossip, rumors, and ultimately a let down over who would be playing The Batman in the upcoming Matt Reeves film, it looks like The CW is hard at work casting their upcoming Batwoman series starring Ruby Rose as the famed female hero. Rose first debuted the character in the Arrowverse and is now being transitioned over to her very own series. Now, it's been announced that Dougray Scott has officially signed on to join the cast as her father, Jacob Kane. 

Scott built a solid foundation for his career early on starring in several TV series then transitioned to film. At one point he was even rumored to play Wolverine in Bryan Singer's X-Men film series. Over time he became a mainstay in film and became a go to guy for villainous roles. Now, he's coming back to television as The CW continues to grow its properties around the DC universe. Batwoman has officially been ordered to pilot.
