AceShowbiz - Actress Javicia Leslie has been cast as the new "Batwoman".
Leslie will portray a new misfit character, named Ryan Wilder, when she makes her debut as Batwoman on TV in January, 2021.
"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 honoured to join this groundbreaking show, which has been such a trailblazer for the LGBTQ+ community," Leslie said.
Batwoman premiered last year with Ruby Rose making history as TV's first openly gay superhero.
Leslie's Wilder is a Batwoman wannabe, who takes over as the crimefighter when Kane goes missing.
