Javicia Leslie as Batwoman is SO COOL!!
The 33-year-old actress stars as Ryan Wilder/the new Batwoman in the upcoming second season of the The CW series.
On Monday (October 26), Javicia shared the first look images of her in the new Batsuit.
“Blackwoman, I mean Batwoman is here! 🦇,” she captioned the images on Instagram.
The new suit was conceptualized by Batwoman costume designer Maya Mani and created by Ocean Drive Leather. Her wig was created by Janice Workman and makeup styled by Cory Roberts.
“I was asked by [showrunner] Caroline Dries to design a Batsuit that was unique to the character of Ryan Wilder; as she is a highly skilled fighter, encapsulating her raw, athletic, and passionate nature was imperative” Maya Mani said in a statement.
“As Batwoman, Javicia Leslie not only brings a fresh perspective, but physical strength to the role,” she continued. “It was important for the new suit to define Javicia’s commanding presence while showcasing her athleticism and allowing her the freedom to express the physical nature of Batwoman, all while looking ultra-cool in the process!”
“I love the fact that Ryan is becoming her own Batwoman — it’s her style, her swag, and her moment!” Javicia said. “It was an honor to be able to collaborate with Caroline and Maya. I felt it was important that viewers could tell by the silhouette that Batwoman was a Black girl. With the form-fitting suit and beautiful Afro, we definitely nailed it!”
