We got a first official look at Javicia Leslie as Ryan Wilder in her redesigned Bat-suit last month, and now thanks to a new CW promo, we have a brief glimpse of Gotham’s new Scarlet Knight in action.
The video begins with an announcement that the first season of Batwoman is now streaming for free on the network, but right at the end we get a few shots of Leslie’s Wilder as she dons her costume and strikes fear into the hearts of criminals with a well-timed “boo.”
Leslie also shared the following BTS video to her Instagram.
As first looks go, it’s not exactly hype-inducing, but with season 2 set to premiere early next year, it shouldn’t be too long before a full trailer is released online.
Leslie‘s casting was initially met with somewhat of a mixed response, mainly because a lot of fans are still disappointed that Kate Kane hasn’t been recast and she’ll be playing a non-canon (well, as far as we know) character. We’ll see if this new Batwoman can win fans over when the show returns on January 17.
Batwoman season 2 will also see the return of Rachel Skarsten (Elizabeth Kane/Alice), Camrus Johnson (Luke Fox), Nicole Kang (Mary Hamilton), Meagan Tandy (Sophie Moore), Christina Wolfe (Julia Pennyworth), and Dougray Scott (Jacob Kane). Shivaani Ghai was recently added to the cast as Safiyah Sohail.
