The CW has found their new Batwoman. Javicia Leslie has been cast as the next Batwoman. Leslie is known for her role on God Friended Me. She has a several movie roles and is ripe for a starring role as a super hero.
Ruby Rose left the role of Batwoman/ Kate Kane after one season. It was previously announced that the new Batwoman would be different character (not just a replacement actor). It is unknown how they will quickly transition away from Kate Kane.
Leslie will portray a very different Batwoman, Ryan Wilder. Ryan Wilder is extremely different from Kate Kane. As a former drug runner, her ideas of justice maybe different but still very strok. She is considered to be messy, goofy, and untamed. This is a new character not based on one from DC Comics.
