The new Batwoman has a new Batsuit, and here is the first look at how Javicia Leslie is shaping up as Gotham City's newest crime fighter.
Javicia Leslie has been cast in the lead role for the second season of The CW’s superhero show Batwoman, replacing original star Ruby Rose, who quit the role earlier this year. Leslie will not play Kate Kane — the character Rose portrayed — and will instead be new character Ryan Wilder. Leslie said: “I am extremely proud to be the first Black actress to play the iconic role of Batwoman on television, and as a bisexual woman, I am honoured to join this groundbreaking show which has been such a trailblazer for the LGBTQ+ community.”
The character of Batwoman won't be recast, following news that actress Ruby Rose won't be returning for a second series of the CW show.

The CW latest DC Comics-inspired project is moving forward.

The pilot will be directed by “Arrow” and “The Flash” alum David Nutter. Here is the official logline for the project: Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate Kane (Rose) 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.
