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

I am (positively) surprised!
Love these new shiny, smooth panels on her costume! Very sexy
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!
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!
I love the fact that all the predictions about who the new Batwoman would be were totally wrong….never ever I heard her name in all these past weeks.
Ok, I never have seen her on my TV so far, but it’s good that she has already some experience as a lead actress on TV.
So she knows about the workload that comes with it and is already used to it contrary to Ruby Rose was as she was Batwoman.
In my opinion Javicia is a little too small for the role (even shorter than Ruby) but ok, with the bat ears and the boots she will look a bit taller than she is 😉
It’s great that she does a lot of fitness and has experience in some martial arts, on her Instagram account you can find some pictures where she does different sports. I hope she will be able to do a lot of her own stunts.
I still bet that Javicia Leslie as “Ryan Wilder” will only be a temporary Batwoman and that Kate Kane will return in season 2 at one point. So, I’m sure this won’t be the “only” new Batwoman we will get to watch in this season. Perhaps she will then be a sidekick/partner in the field and fights alongside the Kate Kane Batwoman.
It seems that the new Ryan Wilder Batwoman is gay and Javicia is bisexual…..but to be honest, that’s not important to me. Totally ok.
However Javicia looks gorgeous and I can totally imagine her under the Batwoman cowl, looking forward to the first official images. I’m 100% sure we will get some pictures and a teaser at the DC Fandome event next month.
