Batwoman Season 2 has been prepping and hyping up its newest addition to the mythos as the premiere draws nearer.
Javicia Leslie is set to star the title character, Ryan Wilder, who is now the 2nd woman to don the cape and cowl. With the departure of Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane, Leslie’s Wilder will find the suit worn by Kane and the responsibility and power behind the suit along with it, carrying forward its legacy from here on out.
Aside from that, fans will be seeing how those close to Kane take the news and process the discovery of someone new taking over the role of Batwoman. CW has dropped a new poster of Leslie as Batwoman with Leslie in suit showing that she is ready for action.
Batwoman’s New Get-Up
The network has also released a full length synopsis of the new season and the new characters here is what the symposis says.
“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.
It’s not long before 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.”
The new season will also bring legendary characters from the Batman mythos to the TV screen such as Hush and Victor Zsasz. We will see a version of Bruce Wayne who is being impersonated by Hush AKA Thomas Elliott. Seeing Warren Christie take on the role of Wayne will be the second time we see Bruce Wayne appear in the CWverse, formerly known as the Arrowverse. The last time was during last year’s big crossover “Crisis On Infinite Earths,” when Kevin Conroy (who voiced Wayne in Batman: The Animated Series) took on the role of a older Bruce Wayne who dealt with Supergirl and Kate Kane.
It will be a interesting season as we see various villains making appearances and storylines with Hush, Season 1 villain Alice and the disappearance of Kate Kane.
Season 2 of Batwoman will air its premiere on January 17th 2021. Will you be watching this new season? Comment below and keep your bat capes pressed with The Illuminerdi for more DCTV news and features.
