Sonya Deville has made it known that she really wants to play the role of “Batwoman” for the new TV series on the CW Network.
Last month it was reported that Deville is being represented by Anderson Group Public Relations and how she is attempting to get acting roles. In fact, the agency has pushed for the SmackDown star to get the role of “Batwoman.”
The show needs a new actress for the lead part due to Ruby Rose, who previously had the role, quitting the show. The Batwoman in season 2 will be a new character called Ryan Wilder instead of the character portrayed by Rose.
Deville did a recent interview with Comic Book Movie about her desire to get the part, which she considers to be a dream role.
“I think that’s always cool because Ruby obviously did a great job with the character, and you don’t ever want to be a different version of somebody else. You want to be a new version of yourself, and so I think that would be an amazing opportunity to create a new role and bring something very different to it, you know?”
When asked whether she’s had any contact with The CW at all or been given the chance to audition, Deville responded with, “In progress. I’m working on it. [Laughs] I’ll say that.”
“What I do in the ring with WWE is my priority right now, and it’s my #1. But, people film movies all the time, and television roles, while working for WWE, so nothing is impossible.”
The media outlet did a two-part interview with her. The first part, which you can read here, covers her transition into acting, while the second part looks at her run in WWE, 2020 being her year, Mandy Rose, Women’s Tag Team Titles, and more that you can read at this link.
