The new Batwoman…. is …. Javicia Leslie!

Well, the last weeks were pretty quiet around the second season of Batwoman…. untitl NOW!

I thought this casting news would be presented at the DC Fandome event next month, but here it is already:

The new Batwoman (aka Ryan Wilder) has been found!

First, here are some facts about Javicia Leslie:

– She is 33 years young and 5′ 3½” (1,61 m)

– She is bisexual

– She was actually born in Augsburg, Germany (#yeah) and moved to the US as a young child

– Javicia has already (lead) TV experience as she played in TV shows such as “God Friended Me”, “The Family Buisness” and “McGyver”

– According to IMDB “Javicia Leslie is also trained in Muay Thai, Boxing, Weapons, Dance, Track, and Swimming and regularly trains in an extensive Fitness Bootcamp”.

Some pictures of Javicia:

My opinion:

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.

I will add more infos here when they arrive

What do you think of Javicia Leslie as Batwoman?

Batwoman news: New promo poster + DC fandome

Some Batwoman news from the last days:

A new promo poster has surfaced!

(click to enlarge to full size)

Obviously this is the full picture of the Batwoman picture that was in the original CW schedule promo some weeks ago:

The Batwoman picture was later replaced by a picture of the Batwoman signal.

3 things on this one are really interesting:

– Is that really Ruby Rose under that cowl? I am not sure! Looks odd.

– Batwoman never used such a rope in the show, she only used the grapel gun the swing around.

But the picture looks very similar to a famous comic cover:

– The cowl she is wearing on this promo poster is the version she had from episode 3-10. It isn’t the current one without chin strap and the unprotected neck.

I guess they made this promo picture for a release quite some time later.

But overall I really like the promo poster!

Sounds like a very interesting event in general and especially as we should get some real news on the second season of Batwoman!

I was never in San Diego for the comic con so this online event is a good chance for me to participate.

Ok, it’s not the same as a “real” comic con, but I’m really thrilled about it.

I expect some big news on the show. A short season 2 teaser would be great!

Also some casting news are most likely to be presented then.

Who will be playing this new Ryan Wilder character? ….would be the most interesting question that demands an answer!

Also any news on the storyline of season 2 would be highly welcome!

Looking forward to this event!

And hopefully we get some infos on season 2 in the meantime as well 😉

In general any teaser and trailers on DC shows or movies are also interesting off course.

Should be an interesting day with a lot of news!
