Batwoman: The first news related to the 3rd season of Batwoman have already started to emerge. Among them is the confirmation of Victoria Cartagena in the main cast. The actress returns to the dramatic universe of DC heroes like detective Renee Montoya, who played during the 1st season of Fox’s Gotham series.
In the comics, Montoya is a very important figure, consisting of a former police officer from Gotham City. Upon leaving the organization due to corruption, she ended up joining a division known for taking care of freaks. The character is fair, pragmatic and willing to face whatever it takes to make the city a good example to be followed.
Although the series Gotham and Batwoman are not directly connected, Victoria Cartagena’s arrival in the cast raises some very interesting considerations for fans, especially those who have been following DC comics for some time.

A fact that really draws attention to Renee Montoya’s dramatic construction is that she is part of the LGBTQI+ community. Identifying herself as a lesbian, her personal trajectory is notable in this regard as well, especially because in the original materials she is involved with Kate Kane, the first Batwoman, and they have a long-lasting relationship with her.
Information about what will be Renee’s motivations during season 3 have not yet been released, but she will certainly have a very consistent narrative arc, especially for all the details that are already known about her personality.
Batwoman’s cast also features Javicia Leslie as main character Ryan Wilder, Rachel Skarsten as Beth Kane, Meagan Tandy as Sophie Moore, Nicole Kang as Mary Hamilton and Camrus Johnson as Batwing.
So stay tuned and be sure to check it out! New episodes of the DC heroine series are expected to be released weekly starting Oct. 13 via The CW.
