Actress Javicia Leslie will star in the series “Batwoman”. (Capture)
At last, fans of the television series “ Batwoman ” have an idea of what Javicia Leslie will look like dressed in the mythical costume with a black mask. The actress published on her social networks an image of her face with the hair and the mask that Ryan Wilder's person uses.
“Look out Gotham, I'm dressed and ready to go… But wait until Ryan Wilder puts his own spin on the suit. @cwbatwoman, ” wrote the actress born in Germany, but raised in the United States.
When the second season of this series premieres next year, Leslie will become the first black actress to play the character of Batwoman. “I always wanted to be a black superhero. You can't see that often. Now I became the first black Batwoman, so I think that's destiny, “Leslie said in an Entertainment Tonight interview. Leslie reflected on the initial response to her casting and said that it “feels like an honor” to play a black Batwoman who is bisexual.
Leslie became the protagonist of this television series, after Ruby Rose announced last May that she was resigning from “Batwoman” after finishing filming only the first season.
At that time Rose did not specify the reasons for her surprising departure from a series that premiered on October 6, 2019 and whose first season, consisting of 20 episodes, concluded in May of this year.
“Batwoman” is part of what is known as the “Arrowverse”, an intertwined television universe made up of different The CW series about the stories and characters of DC Comics.
This ambitious cross storytelling began with “Arrow” in 2012 and includes other series such as “The Flash”, “Supergirl” or “Legends of Tomorrow”
