Batwoman star Javicia Leslie reacts to landing the role after Ruby Rose decided to leave The CW series behind.
After months of wondering who will replace Ruby Rose as Batwoman, it was recently announced that Good Friended Me star Javicia Leslie will don the cape and cowl for the second season of the DC Comics drama. Although fans are anxiously waiting to learn why Kate Kane leaves Gotham City ahead of the second season, it’s great to finally learn who will lead the cast of the Arrowverse series. Leslie was understandably excited about landing the role and took to Instagram to post a touching message.
Batwoman star Javicia Leslie posted a screenshot of the Deadline article announcing the news she’d joined The CW series alongside a motivational caption. She said “For all the little black girls dreaming to be a superhero one day… It’s possible!” It’s undeniably an important moment, since Leslie is the first black woman to don the cowl in live-action. Take a look at the Batwoman star’s Instagram post below.

Here’s the official synopsis for Batwoman season two:
Season two kicks off with a major game-changer that will alter Gotham and The Bat Team forever. As the dust settles, Batwoman has everything working against her – including the recently escaped rogues’ gallery of villains – and everyone will come to see her in a whole new light. Alice meets her match when she becomes entangled with a dangerous foe from her past who knows exactly how to prey on her vulnerabilities. As Luke (Camrus Johnson) and Mary (Nicole Kang) find their footing as sidekicks, a romance will shake up their dynamic. Meanwhile, Sophie (Megan Tandy) and Julia’s (guest star Christina Wolfe) budding relationship will face its first real test and make Sophie question everything she thought she knew to be true.
Batwoman season two is currently set to air in 2021 on The CW. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news on Batwoman and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more video content!
