Javicia Leslie stars as the new lead in Batwoman and looks to play a role very different role from former lead star Ruby Rose, who portrayed Kate Kane.

Leslie will become the first black woman to play Batwoman and was excited for her new role.

Leslie said in July: “I am extremely proud to be the first Black actress to play the iconic role of Batwoman on television, and as a bisexual woman, I am honoured to join this groundbreaking show which has been such a trailblazer for the LGBTQ+ community.”

New teaser footage shows New Batwoman, Ryan holding up Kate’s batsuit in homage to the former character.

She then proceeded to pop up behind a villain, upside down by the way, and yell “boo!”

The short clip suggests we are going to see a very light-hearted and fun version of the superhero, even giving off vibes similar to Tom Holland’s portrayal of Spiderman.

Last month Javicia, said that it was important her Batwoman has a distinctive look from Rose’s.

She explained: “I love the fact that Ryan is becoming her own Batwoman – it’s her style, her swag, and her moment.

“I felt it was important that viewers could tell by the silhouette that Batwoman was a Black girl.

“With the form-fitting suit and beautiful Afro, we definitely nailed it!”

Ruby Rose revealed part of the reason why she left her role on Batwoman was a back injury she sustained while filming.
