Congratulations goes out to actress Javicia Leslie who will become Tv’s First Black Batwoman! Javicia is only 33 years-old and is in the starring role in Season 2 of CW superhero series. It’s also her very first lead in a major tv series and she is kick ass because she did most of her own stunts! The series was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia.
She said one of her favorite superheroes that she loved as a young girl and that she looked up to was Storm from “X-Men”. She also LOVED anything Barbie, I like her already! I can’t wait to watch her on tv tomorrow, she is such a beauty too and maybe I will get to interview her soon, stay tuned!
Batwoman Season 2 will air January 15th on CW. Check out the trailer inside….
In season two of BATWOMAN, when Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie) first discovers Kate Kane’s Batsuit, she has no idea how drastically her life is about to change. A sassy, smart lesbian with a difficult past, Ryan sees the suit as her chance to finally be powerful and no longer a victim as she survives in the tough streets of the city.
While Ryan goes rogue in the shadows, Gotham grapples with their missing hero, believing Batwoman has fled the city after a public stand-off with Commander Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and the Crows. But Kate Kane’s disappearance hits hardest at home where Jacob, Sophie (Meagan Tandy), Luke (Camrus Johnson), Mary (Nicole Kang) and even Alice (Rachel Skarsten) each struggle with the devastating news in their own way. Meanwhile, the False Face Society tightens its grip on Gotham distributing a perilous new drug known as Snakebite, “Bruce Wayne” (Warren Christie) finds his way home to wreak havoc, Safiyah (Shivaani Ghai) surfaces with plans for revenge, and a new set of villains descends on the city.
As chaos and uncertainly proliferate, Ryan realizes how much the symbol on the suit means to Gotham, launching her on a personal journey that takes her from fledgling substitute to confident caped crusader, from living in her van with her plant to chasing villains in the Batmobile. Ryan Wilder becomes a very different Batwoman than Kate Kane – her own Batwoman – but with the same understanding of what it means to be a hero.
