Javicia Leslie's Batwoman Will Have An Entirely Different Suit

We are getting more details about the upcoming second season of Batwoman!

The cast took part in a panel during DC FanDome on Saturday (September 12), where they chatted about the new season, where Javicia Leslie is taking over the title role as an all new character, Ryan Wilder, and we got some info on a new suit.

“No, I haven’t,” she said in response to if she’s had any fittings yet. “We were talking about doing costume fittings very soon. That way we can be prepared as soon as we get [back to production].”

“But I know Caroline and I were talking about how important it is that if we’re going to have a Black Batwoman, that she needs to be, like, a sista when she becomes Batwoman,” Javicia added. “It’s important for her to feel like the silhouette of her could still look like that, with natural textured hair and things like that.”

Javicia added that she’s been sending showrunner Caroline Dries fan art, saying, “Oh my gosh, look at this! This looks really good.”

“How can we be sure that Ryan isn’t hiding what makes her awesome, with this suit?” Caroline said. “So it’s going to be a bit of an evolution. We’ll see the suit evolve early on in the season. Ryan is like, ‘For me to feel empowered in this thing, it needs to feel like it’s representing something I’m fighting for.’”

In case you missed it, see who Javicia said she was pulling some inspiration from to take on the role of Batwoman.
