Javicia Leslie is cast as a new series lead in Batwoman

Javicia Leslie has been cast as Ryan Wilder and became a new series lead for “Batwoman.” Javicia will replace Ruby Rose who exited the role after the end of season 1. She will make her debut when the series returns for its second season in January.

“I am extremely proud to be the first Black actress to play the iconic role of Batwoman on television, and as a bisexual woman, I am honored to join this ground-breaking show which has been such a trailblazer for the LGBTQ+ community,” says Javicia about her new role.

“Ryan spent years as a drug-runner, dodging the GCPD and masking her pain with bad habits. Today Ryan lives in her van with her plant. A girl who would steal milk for an alley cat and also could kill you with her bare hands, Ryan is the most dangerous type of fighter: highly skilled and wildly undisciplined. An out lesbian. Athletic. Raw. Passionate. Fallible. And very much not your stereotypical All-American hero,” says the official description of the character.

Kate Kane’s sudden disappearance will be the core mystery of the upcoming season. No further details have been provided yet, but the creators would like to pay tribute to the LGBTQ+ community.
