Batwoman: CW Releases First Look Images Of Javicia Leslie In New Batsuit


The CW have released first look images of the new Batwoman suit that is redesigned for Javicia Leslie’s character Ryan Wilder for the upcoming second season.

 

The first season focused on Kate Kane, who, armed with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind, soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. But don’t call her a hero yet…in a city desperate for a saviour, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.

 

With the departure of Ruby Rose, the second season will focus on Javicia Leslie as Ryan Wilder, who will succeed Kate Kane as Batwoman. Here is a few images of the new suit below.

In regards to the new suit, showrunner Caroline Dries released a statement saying:

Ryan’s journey starts from a place of ‘What can this Batsuit do for me?’ But it’s not long before she realises the power of its symbol and what it can do for everyone else in Gotham City. As Ryan embraces everything that makes her special, she adjusts the suit to fit her physically and figuratively. This meant creating a new body design and new cowl that was undeniably a statement that screamed ‘powerful.’ Maya Mani sent me her drawings and I loved it. The wig was something we never perfected in season one, and Janice Workman crushed it with this new take. Javicia and I saw various prototypes of styles and red ombres, and at one point we were trading our own iPad-doodled versions. Janice translated that into what we are looking at now. When I see it, I smile. It makes me feel inspired.

 

Javicia Leslie released a statement saying:

I love the fact that Ryan is becoming her own Batwoman — it’s her style, her swag, and her moment. I felt it was important that viewers could tell by the silhouette that Batwoman was a Black girl. With the form-fitting suit and beautiful Afro, we definitely nailed it!

 

The second season will also star Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Nicole Kang, Camrus Johnson, Dougray Scott, Christina Wolfe, Warren Christie, Shivaani GhaiLeah Gibson and Nathan Owens.
