The CW just released a stellar teaser for Batwoman Season 2. Fans are a little confused as the main lead is undergoing quite the change for the second season. Javicia Leslie will be replacing Ruby Rose as the Batwoman.

The CW is airing a brand-new teaser that mostly features clips of season 1 to try and get the viewers to catch up on the story thus far on their (US-only) app. But there are a couple of cheeky clips of season 2 with the God Friended Me actress, Javicia in action.


The new footage shows Ryan Wilder, a.k.a. Javicia holding up Kate’s batsuit. And there’s no need of worrying she’ll get her own later on. She is seen scaring a bad guy by popping up behind them, upside down, and giving them a cheeky “boo!”

Batwoman showrunner also gives the insides into the batsuit. The new-look screams “power” and the perfected wig is just a cherry on top.

Black-Woman as BatWoman:

Leslie says she loves the fact that Ryan is becoming her own Batwoman—it’s her style, her swag, and her moment. She adds, “It was an honor to be able to collaborate with Caroline and Maya. I felt it was important that viewers could tell by the silhouette that Batwoman was a Black girl. With the form-fitting suit and beautiful Afro, we definitely nailed it!”
