Gotham is now entrusted to Javicia Leslie
According to the news of the Hollywood Reporter, Javicia Leslie will take on the task of capping the cloak in the Batwoman series, which was released only in the first season. It was also explained how the name to be the new protector of Gotham will be included in the story.
Leslie, of course, will not portray the character of Kate Kane directly from where Ruby Rose left off. Instead, he will appear as a new character. This character will have a much different history.
Unlike Kate, our new character, Ryan Wilder, also saw the dirty side of Gotham, got involved in dirty work, but remained true to the ethical values that formed his personality. At times, Wilder, who is at odds with the police, will decide to provide justice himself.
“Not the usual full American hero stereotype”
In a statement on the subject, “Today Ryan lives with his plants in a trailer. As a girl who can steal milk for her street cat and kill you with her bare hands, Ryan is the most dangerous fighter type: very talented and brutally undisciplined. He is an open homosexual. Athletic. Pure. Passionate. Fallible. And it’s not quite the usual American hero stereotype. ”
Leslie will thus be the first black, clearly LGBT character in the series universe called CW’s Arrowverse. Saying that he is also bisexual, the actor said that he was very excited to be the first black woman to portray Batwoman.
