Javicia Leslie Offers First Look At Ryan Wilder In ‘Batwoman’ Costume

by Erik Amaya

New Batwoman star Javicia Leslie has taken possession of one of the shows key icons: the batsuit.

Late Friday event, Leslie posted a photo of a recent costume test to her Instagram page. The close up only reveals Leslie in the cowl originally designed for Kate Kane (Ruby Rose), but confirms Wilder will start with Kate’s costume. As discussed at DC FanDome Explore the Multiverse, Wilder will alter the batsuit as the season wares on. Executive producer and showrunner Caroline Dries referred to the process as an “evolution.”

Leslie also recommitted to the evolution in her post, writing, “Just wait until Ryan Wilder puts her own spin on the Batsuit.” It’s a change we cannot wait to see. Though recasting Kate still seems like the better answer to the show’s abrupt change of lead actor, we’re interested to see how a completely new character will change the dynamic. Worst comes to worst, they can always bring Kate back with a new face at the end of the season and keep both characters on as Batwoman. It works for Hawkeye, after all.

Batwoman returns to The CW in 2021.
