After Ruby Rose decided to quit the show, meaning Kate Kane’s character had to be written out, a new Batwoman was needed. She came in the form of Javicia Leslie as Ryan Wilder. Now the CW have released the first promo photos from the show.
Talking about the new look, executive producer Caroline Dries spoke to Deadline:
“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.’ (The) wig was something we never perfected in season one (but designer Janice Workman) crushed it with this new take”.
It looks more and more like an extensive re-tooling of the show as new cast members pour in. Shivani Ghai as Safiyah, Leah Gibson as The Whisper, Nathan Owens as Ocean and Alex Morf as Victor Zsasz. The new season will start shooting in January.
