Batwoman: Season 2 Archives - Javicia Leslie Archives


 

The photo gallery has received a complete facelift/reorganization, as well as now being found under a new url: javicialeslie.net/gallery! In addition, I’ve added captures from the remaining season two episodes of Batwoman, as well as most of the missing season two God Friended Me captures.


One of the most buzzworthy DC Comics shows on the air right now is now streaming on HBO Max. As of today, Tuesday, July 27th, Season 2 of The CW’s Batwoman is now available to stream exclusively on HBO Max. This will give fans the best opportunity yet to see the journey of the show’s new Batwoman, Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie).

Season 2 of Batwoman sees the Bat Team reeling from the disappearance of Kate Kane, just as Ryan takes up the Batwoman mantle and tries to be her own hero in Gotham City. Along the way, she will go toe-to-toe with villains like Safiyah Sohail (Shivani Ghai), Victor Zsasz (Alex Morf), and Black Mask (Peter Outerbridge).

“She’s a person that hurt. She learned all these different martial arts so she can protect herself and her mother, and people that she cares about. And she could do nothing. It’s taken right from her, and she could do nothing to save her mother. So I understand the drive. So I will read the script, and I would innately and naturally attack that way,” Leslie explained during a press conference at the beginning of the season. “Because if I’ve been set in that world and that history of being neglected, of my mom being murdered, of her murder going unsolved, and that justice never prevailed, I’m going to have that type of energy and that type of drive every single time I get a chance to avenge her death or save anyone.”

“Especially in the beginning part of the season, that’s Ryan. She’s head-first at everything, and I actually love that about her,” Leslie continued. “I love how messy that can come across, because she has to find a way to hone it. She has to find a way to focus. But I think that that’s what makes her so special, because she’s very authentic. She’s very raw. She’s very grounded in her beliefs. And really, it’s going to take root. It’s going to take Mary to show her there’s a bigger picture, and sometimes that bigger picture will not involve getting justice for your mother. That’s the journey that she has to go on, to be able to forgive, or maybe she doesn’t.”

Season 3 of Batwoman will premiere on Wednesday, October 13th, at 9/8c on The CW.

Studio description: At the end of the first season, Crows Commander Kane (Dougray Scott) has declared war on Batwoman, forcing everyone around them to choose sides. Season two kicks off with a major game-changer that alters Gotham City and The Bat Team forever. A new hero emerges from the shadows. Relatable, messy, loyal, and a little goofy, Ryan Wilder (Leslie) couldn’t be more different than the woman who wore the Batsuit before her, billionaire Kate Kane. Living in her van, Ryan has been made to feel trapped and powerless by the system her whole life and believes the Batsuit is the key to breaking out of it. But what she’ll come to discover is that it’s not the suit that makes Ryan Wilder powerful, it’s the woman inside of it who finds her destiny in changing Gotham City for good.

Batwoman aired its heart-stopping Season 2 finale on Sunday night, and it’s safe to say that it made changes that will impact the series’ Gotham City forever. That was true even through the episode’s final moments, with a moment that seems to tee up a pretty major foe for Season 3. Obviously, spoilers for the Season 2 finale of Batwoman, “Power”, below! Only look if you want to know! The episode ended with the various artifacts from Batman villains washing up in a Gotham river, including Penguin’s umbrella and Mad Hatter’s hat. Finally, we saw Poison Ivy’s vines reach onto the shore of the river and begin to snake upwards.

So, does this mean that the series could be bringing Poison Ivy into Season 3? While there’s no telling at this point, series star Javicia Leslie recently spoke about the scene in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“So freaking epic,” Leslie explained. “Like literally a lot of your epic Batman villains, we have all of their weapons and they’ve all been released into the river and people are going to find [them] and you’re going to find the effects that these weapons have on these normal Gotham citizens and then becoming like these supervillains, and it’s just going to be so much fun. I can’t wait! I’m excited because we’re about to start shooting season 3 and I can’t wait to read the scripts and to see where it goes.”

Leslie’s comment about Gotham citizens becoming supervillains seems to indicate that we might not get Pamela Isley herself, but there still is a chance that she could factor into the proceedings. The series already acknowledged the mantle earlier this season, proving that she’s notorious enough to make an impact either way.

The idea of Ivy existing within that universe is definitely surprising, especially given how significant and beloved of a character she’s become in the comics, and on animated properties like HBO Max’s Harley Quinn show. Audiences haven’t gotten a live-action Poison Ivy (or even a mention of one) since Fox’s Gotham years ago, and there is still an ongoing push to introduce the character in the movies in some capacity. Given how fast-and-loose the Arrowverse had to play with Batman-related canon years ago, it’s an interesting indication of just how far the TV universe has become — and how fleshed-out Batwoman’s version of Gotham City really is.
