The newest Batwoman is here!

Javicia Leslie has been cast in the role for The CW’s Batwoman series — making her the first Black actress to step into the iconic role for a live-action TV show or movie.

“I am extremely proud to be the first Black actress to play the iconic role of Batwoman on television, and as a bisexual woman, I am honored to join this groundbreaking show which has been such a trailblazer for the LGBTQ+ community,” Leslie, 33, said in a press release Wednesday.

Leslie will make her debut as the superhero in January 2021, when the series is set to return to The CW for season 2.

In the new season, Leslie will play Ryan Wilder, described as “likable, messy, a little goofy and untamed.”
