Batwoman Season 2 premieres January 17th on The CW with actress Javicia Leslie taking over the role of Batwoman.
Its easy to write this off as fledgling show that lost its star now trying to cling to life by playing the race card, but it might be different enough to at least give it a look. Original series star Ruby Rose acting ability left a lot to be desired so the series can only go up with new series star Javicia Leslie.
Leslie plays original character (developed just for the series) Ryan Wilder, the woman taking over as Gotham’s new protector. But not everyone is embracing the passing of the superhero torch.
“I don’t want to give up hope that Kate’s alive,” her father Jacob Kane confesses. Meanwhile, trusted ally/friend Luke declares, “Kate is Batwoman.” But Ryan quickly makes her presence known on the street, with an altered suit and a potentially killer attitude. “I met the new girl. She’s going to be a handful,” a smiling Alice (series antagonist) remarks.
The new Batwoman appears more free spirited than Kate, taunting criminals right before she lays into them with a barrage of well placed kicks and jabs.
This season will also be the first time the Batmobile has appeared on the show because Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane rode around on a motorcycle in season 1.
