Batwoman news: Interviews + a new big villain

Season 2 of Batwoman is only DAYS away as it starts THIS SUNDAY, January 17 at the CW at 8pm.

After no fresh episodes since May I’m more than hyped! 🙂

A lot of articles and news surfaced the last days and on this post I wanna collect all the new info prior to episode 1.

Safiyah is one of the big villains in season 2, we know that for quite a while now. She was already mentioned a few times in season 1 and has some connections to Alice and Kate(?).

Shivaani Ghai was casted for that role.

Now we get some first look images + an interesting text on EW:

Meet Batwoman season 2 big bad Safiyah in new first look

Now we got news that infamous villain Black Mask also joins the villains of season 2 on the show!

No info on the actor who will play him are out yet….but damn, that’s great news! I always liked his role in the comics and his appearance was one of the plus points of the Birds of Prey movie.

More on that on the EW as well:

Batwoman boss confirms Black Mask is season 2’s other big bad

Some interestings interviews with Javicia Leslie the new Batwoman:

An AWESOME Batwoman promo poster! + The snyopsis of episode 1 of season 2

One last post for 2020.

Yesterday I felt like a child on christmas as a late christmas gift appeared on the CW social media accounts. 🙂

It was THIS season 2 promo poster:

(click to enlarge)


Oh…..my …..GOD!!!!

Love how her cowl is presented by her, while her face stays in the shadows 🙂

My mouth was wide open as I found the twitter post with this one.

As soon as I find a real big version of this one I will order a poster with this asap.

*EDIT*

Here is the synopsis for episode 1 of season 2:

Spoiler title
GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN – Kate’s friends and family hold on to hope that Kate may still be found, a homeless 25-year-old named Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie) stumbles upon Kate’s Batsuit.  Focused on no longer being a victim, Ryan takes the suit to use as armor and goes rogue in the streets of Gotham, taking out various members of a new gang called the False Face Society.  Meanwhile, both Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and Luke Fox (Camrus Johnson) launch searches for Kate, Mary Hamilton (Nicole Kang) grapples with losing yet another family member, Sophie Moore (Meagan Tandy) struggles with things left unsaid to her first love, and Alice (Rachel Skarsten) is furious that someone got to Kate before she could exact her revenge.  At the same time, “Bruce Wayne” (guest star Warren Christie) returns under the pretense of searching for Kate, but the truth is he wants his suit back and it becomes the clash of imposters as “Batwoman” and “Bruce” square off in the action-packed season premiere. Holly Dale directed the episode written by Caroline Dries (#201).  Original airdate 1/17/2021.  Every episode of BATWOMAN will be available to stream on The CW App and CWTV.com the day after broadcast for free and without a subscription, log-in or authentication required. 

Just 17 more days to the start of season 2!

Batwoman: New promo poster and a detailed synopsis for season 2!

Right in time for Christmas interesting new material have just surfaced!

Here is the new promo poster:

(click to enlarge)

Really like that one!

As soon I got a really big sized version, I will order a poster and hang it up next to the season 1 poster I had ordered last year.

But that’s not it…here is the detailed synopsis for season 2:

In season two of BATWOMAN, when Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie) first discovers Kate Kane’s Batsuit, she has no idea how drastically her life is about to change. A sassy, smart lesbian with a difficult past, Ryan sees the suit as her chance to finally be powerful and no longer a victim as she survives in the tough streets of the city.

While Ryan goes rogue in the shadows, Gotham grapples with their missing hero, believing Batwoman has fled the city after a public stand-off with Commander Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and the Crows. But Kate Kane’s disappearance hits hardest at home where Jacob, Sophie (Meagan Tandy), Luke (Camrus Johnson), Mary (Nicole Kang) and even Alice (Rachel Skarsten) each struggle with the devastating news in their own way. Meanwhile, the False Face Society tightens its grip on Gotham, distributing a perilous new drug known as Snakebite, “Bruce Wayne” (Warren Christie) finds his way home to wreak havoc, Safiyah (Shivaani Ghai) surfaces with plans for revenge, and a new set of villains descends on the city.

It’s not long before Ryan realizes how much the symbol on the suit means to Gotham, launching her on a personal journey that takes her from fledgling substitute to confident caped crusader, from living in her van with her plant to chasing villains in the Batmobile. Ryan Wilder becomes a very different Batwoman than Kate Kane – her own Batwoman – but with the same understanding of what it means to be a hero.

Starring Javicia Leslie, Dougray Scott, Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Nicole Kang, and Camrus Johnson.

Interesting new details in this juicier synospsis!

Kate missing, Alice still on the loose, False Face Society, false Bruce Wayne and Safiyah appearing in Gotham.

Sounds like quite a LOT happening in good old Gotham… 😉

Bring it on, I’m very excited for the new season!

7 months have past until the end of season 1, finally in 4 weeks the waiting comes to an end!

Batwoman: Promo pictures for episode 1 of season 2

The Batwoman Promo machine is coming to speed after we finally got the trailer last week!

Now Entertainment Weekly published 9 pictures today.

Here you can see all 9 of them in one place:

Quite a lot of question can be asked about these pictures:

Will be very interesting to see how Elliot disguised as Bruce Wayne will act in the early episodes.

What is his goal? How will they find out that it isn’t Bruce Wayne after all?

What does he have in picture number 4 in his hands. I guess a weapon….but what kind?

And Kate Kane disappears and Ryan Wilder surfaces…..will be interesting to see how all of the characters will handle that.

Where does the new car is coming from? The red colored section and the bat symbol aren’t on it at that point.

Who is poiting that gun at Alice? And why?

Oh, the first episode will have to answer a LOT of questions!

Season start on January 17, just one month to go!

Batwoman: Season 2 TRAILER!

Finally!

A trailer!

A real trailer!

A REAL TRAILER!!!!!

Excited as hell right now!

Love the creepy start in the trailer with Alice doing what she can do best 😉

Wonder what her beef with Julia here is?

Ryan will have a rough start she will need to persuade Mary and Luke that she can be the new heroine the city need.

Sophie and Jacob should now finally realise that Batwoman was Kate the whole time….

38 days to go! 🙂

Batwoman: A new teaser + a behind the scenes snippet

A new video surfaced that adds some new scenes (the first 6 seconds) to the two already published teasers.

If you will a sort of teaser compilation 😉


Some speculate that the thug at the very beginning might be Scarecrow….

 

Earlier this week a behind the scenes videos for Batwoman was shown.

It wasn’t published on the internet yet, but this seems to be a part of it:
Some more images:
Also the season trailer should come this week…. hopefully.
Is it January 17 already? No? DAMN!

Batwoman: Episode titles from season 2 + another teaser

Season 2 is still coming next year, but now we can also say:
….Season 2 is starting next MONTH! 🙂

….sounds SOOO much better… 😉

Besides that, the episodes titles for the first 5 episodes were revealed:

Spoiler title

2×01 – Whatever Happened to Kate Kane?

2×02 – Prior Criminal History

2×03 – Bat Girl Magic!

2×04 – Fair Skin, Blue Eyes

2×05 – Gore on Canvas

Judging by the titles:
1) Well, hopefully we will get some answers to that….only some….at least.
2) That will certainly be about Ryan Wilders criminal past and how she now wants to leave that behing her
3) A wordplay…. this will be the episode were Ryan gets her own/new batsuit. But why “Girl” instead of “Woman”? I doubt it has anything to do with Batgirl.
4) Sounds like a description of Alice(?)
5) Interesting….. an episode with a horror touch? Perhaps the episode with Victor Zsasz?

Forgot to post this one, even it has only some new seconds of a scene from season 2:

🙂

I am hoping/expecting that the full trailer for season 2 surfaces with the next 9 days.

Let’s see if I am right or not….

Batwoman: More set pictures and videos!

We are only 68 days away from the second season of Batwoman.

Time for more pictures and videos from the set!

For starters some pictures from Canadagraphs:

(click to enlarge to full size)

And on his website you can find much more pictures from that shooting:

https://canadagraphs.weebly.com/batwoman-blog/batwoman-javicia-leslie-on-set-in-brand-new-batsuit-with-meagan-tandy-for-season-2-and-the-updated-batmobile

Interesting pictures that shorten the waiting time before season 2 starts on January 17th 🙂

Will be interesting to see what kind of weapons and gadgets the Batmobile has! A car has certainly more space for them as Kate’s Batcycle had in season 1.

Also, here are a couple of short videos that Javicia posteded the last days (turn on the audio!):

(click on the arrows to enlarge the video to full size)

All posted on Javicia’s Twitter and/or Insta:

https://twitter.com/JaviciaLeslie

https://www.instagram.com/javicia/

Always interesting to get such behind the scenes insights, even these videos are very short off course.

Love how she “climbs up” the rope while the Batman score from the 60’s TV show starts.

The “Walker” CW show which starts also in January aired a teaser last week….. I hope that we get one for Batwoman as well very soon! 😉

More Batwoman set pictures with Javicia Leslie and Meagan Tandy

Good days for the fans of the Batwoman TV show! 🙂

More images from Batwoman and Sophie has surfaced on Insta and Twitter:

(click to enlarge)

And I have another video for you folks that Javicia uploaded:

Damn, can’t wait to see her in action!

72 days to go until season 2 🙂

 

A nice detail: It’s the first time I realise that Batwoman has kneepads on her costume now!

I guess they are quite practical and they look just fine, not too “striking”.

Official promo pictures of the NEW Javicia Leslie Batwoman costume!

FINALLY!

The CW released these two promo pictures of Javicia Leslie in her NEW Batwoman costume (will debut in episode 3 of season 2):

(click to enlarge to full size)

DAMN!
I am (positively) surprised!
Love these new shiny, smooth panels on her costume! Very sexy :thumbup:
Also the red gauntlets are awesome. Thanks god the cowl didn’t get smaller/less concealing like I feared.
The cowl has a chin strap again! :thumbup:

This really fuels my anticipation for season 2 after we got practically nothing in regards of promo pictures and no teaser or trailers so far!

Right now I have a big smile on my face 🙂

Batwoman has a Batmobile now + a glimpse at her new costume!

[2nd post for today]

There were already some pictures of the new Batwoman Batmobile, but now you can actually get a really good look at it!

So it seems that the bike that Kate drove in season 1 got retired for some reason.

Here are some pictures of the car:

(click to enlarge)

Credits: Awesome Friday

(pictures 1-3)

 

Quite a cool car! Will be interesting to see how it looks in action in the show 🙂

And even more interesting you can see the new Batwoman -Javicia Leslie- in her new costume in this short video:

Again, credits: Awesome Friday

Here some screenshots from the video:

(click to enlarge)

Yeah, it’s just a first glimpse on the costume as it was shot at night from a distance.

But you can see that Javicia doesn’t use the red wig from season 1 anymore. As they mentioned it already in the past months….her natural, curly hair is (still) visibile when she is in costume.

Besides that it is hard to say what was changed on the costume as well. Was the cowl changed as well? What about the suit?

Well, I hope that we will get some official promo shots of her in the new costume very soon.

Maybe this leaked material will speed up the process like in the past as all the set pictures surfaced.

What do you think of these pictures and the video?

Feel welcome to leave a comment!
