‘Batwoman’: Javicia Leslie Cast As the New Lead Of the CW Superhero Series
God Friended Me co-star Javicia Leslie has been cast as the new Batwoman, succeeding Ruby Rose who exited the role after the end of Season 1. Leslie, confirmed to play a new character named Ryan Wilder, will make her debut in the iconic cape and cowl when Batwoman returns to the CW for its second season in January.

Batwoman producers Warner Bros. Television and Berlanti Productions did not look far to find their new lead — Leslie is coming off a two-season run as a series regular on the Berlanti Prods./Wbtv drama for CBS God Friended Me.

With Leslie’s casting, Batwoman continues to break new ground.

“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 groundbreaking show which has been such a trailblazer for the LGBTQ+ community,” Leslie said.
