The CW released the first teaser for Season 2 of “ Batwoman, ” showing Javicia Leslie as Ryan Wilder assuming the identity of the heroine.
The new season will start on January 17th.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Leslie opened up about her anxiety about playing the title character now.
The star also argued that her choice for the role was a big step towards representativeness and that it reflects the change in the world of adaptations.
“Joining the cast of this series has been a victory, not only for me, but for anyone who has asked for more diversity in the world of adaptations. But I think it was a natural fit, a reflection of the change in this universe [das adaptações de quadrinhos]. I hope this is just the beginning and this trend will gain momentum in the future.
She also mentioned that she was already prepared for the action scenes as she had always been interested in physical activities.
“I was told it was a very tiring role. Well, I am very active in my personal life. I practice Muay Thai, I exercise, I run. I am ready for anything that involves physical activity. Working with it will be like playing on the playground every day. “
For those who don’t know, Leslie took over the role after Ruby Rose left.
Leslie will play Ryan Wilder, a woman in her twenties who is about to become Batwoman.
The character is described as “friendly, playful and untamed.” It has nothing to do with Kate Kane, the woman who wore the costume before. Without someone special in his life, Ryan has spent years using drugs, masking his pain with bad habits. A girl who would steal milk from a stray cat is also capable of killing with her own hands, Ryan is the most dangerous type of fighter: highly trained and unruly. Lesbian assumed. Athletic. And it is certainly not your stereotype of heroine ”.
In Brazil, the series is broadcast by Warner Channel.
The cast includes Meagan Tandy, Dougray Scott, Elizabeth Anweis, Camrus Johnson, Rachel Skarsten, Nicole Kang and Gabriel Mann.
