First teaser for Batwoman season 2
This season will see Javicia Leslie take up the mantle after Ruby Rose's departure.
US network The CW has unveiled the first teaser for Batwoman season 2.
It will see Javicia Leslie take over the lead role from star Ruby Rose, who announced her exit from the project back in May citing her need to recover from back surgery.
The ten-second clip shows Leslie, who will be the first black actress to play Batwoman in a live-action production, getting ready to fight crime by suiting up.
Instead of replacing Rose as Kate Kane, Leslie will play a new character called Ryan Wilder who has been described as “likable, messy, a little goofy and untamed” and “nothing like the woman who wore the Batsuit before her.”
Caroline Dries will again serve as showrunner and has confirmed that the ruthless Safiyah (Shivani Ghai) will be the Big Bad of this season.
Although Safiyah didn’t appear on screen in season one, she was mentioned several times and was revealed to be the one who hired the hitman Rifle (Garfield Wilson) to kill Batwoman.
Other villains set to appear include The Whisper (Leah Gibson) another deadly assassin in league with Safiyah and Victor Zsasz (Alex Morf) a psychopathic serial killer who is a well-known member of Batman’s rogue gallery.
Cast members Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Nicole Kang, Camrus Johnson and Dougray Scott are all set to return.
Batwoman season 2 will premiere in the US on 17th January 2021 but a UK release date is not yet known.
