Leslie’s Wilder is set to take over the mantle of Batwoman from Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane after she goes missing. Unfortunately, no images of Leslie in costume have surfaced yet, but it is still early in the season. Hopefully, as filming continues for the upcoming season, fans will be able to get a look at the new heroine in her suit.
The CW and WarnerMedia are committed to the show’s LGBTQ representation. Wilder will find inspiration in Kane’s work as Batwoman and decide to take up the mantle. However, the move would be unprecedented. Leslie will become the first woman of color to embody the iconic character Batwoman in the upcoming season of the CW series. Like many other series, Batwoman season one halted early due to the coronavirus pandemic. The show had a planned 22-episode season, but Episode 20 served as its season finale.
