First look at Javicia Leslie in ‘Batwoman’ cape and cowl

(Leslie reveals a peek of herself in the batsuit)

Batwoman was one of the first series to return to production when COVID-19 safety precautions were put into place in Vancouver. Curiosity has been high ever since star Ruby Rose (Kate Kane) left the series and was replaced by Javicia Leslie. Fanboys and fangirls have wondered how will the African American actress look as the titular character in costume.

We now have an answer. Sort of.

Leslie posted a photo of herself in the costume on Instagram. From the looks of it, this seems to be her initial screen. So most likely it may have been the first time she ever tried on the wig, cowl and complete suit.

The costume also seems to be identical to the one Rose wore in season one. Leslie says her character will add her own style to the costume eventually.

The CW states the main cast will remain largely the same as Rachel Skarsten (Alice), Meagan Tandy (Sophie Moore), Nicole Kang (Mary Hamilton), Camrus Johnson (Luke Fox), and Dougray Scott (Jacob Kane) are all set to return.

Currently confirmed recurring and guest stars include Shivani Ghai (Safiyah Sohail), Christina Wolfe (Julia Pennyworth), Gabriel Mann (Hush), Leah Gibson (The Whisper), and Nathan Owens (Ocean).
