The CW’s series of Batwoman is about to make its first change to the lead character in their iconic show in season 2 of the series which would be premiering in January 2021. Javicia Leslie will step into the tights, boots, and mask of the cape crusader with an alias of Ryan Wilder replacing Ruby Rose who wore the suit before her.
Javicia Leslie in a recent statement expressed her joy especially for being the first black actress to assume the role of Batwoman on television. Not only is she the first black actress but she would also be portraying a lesbian character that would endear her to the LGBTQ+ community.
The actress who was born in Germany to a military family has always been into acting and has starred in some movies such as The family business, God Friended Me, and Hello cupid reboot amongst others.
She has been described to play an entirely new version of the Batwoman character than her predecessor Ruby Rose did. She would depict a young woman with a background of petty crime as a drug runner who lives in a van with her plant. She could still milk for an alley cat and undoubtedly kill anyone with her bare hands when threatened. An undisciplined and ferocious fighter who would be chosen to take up the life of a masked hero to save lives and battle evil; Typically not your stereotype of an all-American hero.
Ruby Rose who was rumored to have exited the show due to the fact that she stayed long hours on set of the production and had to move to Vancouver for the filming took to her Instagram page to congratulate Leslie expressing her delight over the fact that the role would be played by a black woman.
She(Ruby) explicitly stated that she couldn’t wait to watch season 2 of the show to see Leslie in action.
Season 2 of Batwoman would be premiering in January 2021 and fans of the show cant wait to see the action Leslie would bring to their screens. I bet you cant also.
