Batwoman Archives - Javicia Leslie Archives


 

The CW has released a synopsis for Mad as a Hatter, the premiere episode for Batwoman. Check it out below:

SEASON PREMIERE – As Batwoman (Javicia Leslie) continues to keep the streets of Gotham safe, Batwing (Camrus Johnson) joins in on the action, but Luke quickly realizes he hasn’t quite mastered his suit. Meanwhile, as Alice (Rachel Skarsten) sits hopelessly imprisoned in Arkham, Sophie (Meagan Tandy) fully enjoys her freedom.

When Ryan pays Alice a visit to ask about the bombshell she dropped – that Ryan’s birth mother is still alive – Ryan must decide if she should go down the rabbit hole of her past. As Mary (Nicole Kang) prepares to finally graduate from medical school, she feels the absence of her family more than ever.

But when an Alice admirer stumbles upon one of the missing Bat Trophies, Gotham and the Bat Team get mixed up in the madness, culminating in a shockingly gruesome graduation… and an equally shocking new partnership.

Also starring Robin Givens and Victoria Cartagena.
Holly Dale directed the episode written by Caroline Dries.


EW was the first to break the news that Javicia will finally be taking part in her first Arrowverse crossover, as Ryan Wilder / Batwoman will be involved with the five-part crossover that is to begin with The Flash!

Team Flash will get by with a lot of help from its friends — and foes —in The Flash’s special five-part event.

On Wednesday, the CW revealed that the crossover-like saga kicking off The Flash’s eighth season is titled “Armageddon” and will enlist the following heroes to help Team Flash take on an alien threat: Cress Williams as Black Lightning, Legends of Tomorrow’s Brandon Routh as Atom, Arrow’s Kat McNamara as Mia Queen, Javicia Leslie as Batwoman, Supergirl’s Chyler Leigh as Sentinel, and Osric Chau as Ryan Choi, who was first introduced in the “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover. On top of that, The Flash’s Tom Cavanagh and Neal McDonough are slated to return as the villainous Eobard Thawne/Reverse Flash and Damien Darhk, respectively.

So what brings everyone together on The Flash? Here’s the official logline:

A powerful alien threat arrives on Earth under mysterious circumstances and Barry (Grant Gustin), Iris (Candice Patton), and the rest of Team Flash are pushed to their limits in a desperate battle to save the world. But with time running out, and the fate of humanity at stake, Flash and his companions will also need to enlist the help of some old friends if the forces of good are to prevail.

“Simply put, these are going to be some of the most emotional Flash episodes ever,” The Flash showrunner Eric Wallace said in a statement. “Plus, there are some truly epic moments and huge surprises that await our fans. And we’re doing them on a scale that’s bigger and bolder than our traditional Flash episodes. So yes, ‘Armageddon’ is a lot more than just another graphic novel storyline. It’s going to be a true event for Flash and Arrowverse fans, old and new. Honestly, I can’t wait for audiences to see what we’ve got planned.”

The event’s lineup is exciting for a number reasons. First, this will be the first time that Leslie’s Ryan Wilder meets Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen/The Flash and the rest of the Arrowverse’s capes, something that wasn’t possible during her first season on Batwoman because of the COVID-19 pandemic. (We’re assuming Barry and Iris didn’t call on Caity Lotz’s Sara Lance/White Canary because Sara and Ava didn’t invite them to their wedding. Either way, we’re looking forward to the meta joke the rest of the Legends make about not being invited.)

Furthermore, “Armageddon” will mark several actors’ returns to the shared universe since either leaving their still on-the-air shows, like Routh and Cavanagh, or their shows concluded, as is the case with Williams, McNamara, and Leigh, who only recent finished shooting Supergirl’s series finale. Since Supergirl final episode airs this fall, fans won’t have to wait too long to see Leigh’s Alex Danvers again.

The guest-star lineup also raises a couple questions for the story: How and why does Mia, who lives in the future, get involved? Also McDonough’s warlock is technically dead in the present, so which version of him will we meet? Is it a Damien Darhk from the past, or will he be resurrected once again? (The last time we saw him on Legends, he valiantly sent himself back to Hell using an enchanted sword) Finally, does this event mean we’ll finally see the heroes use their Hall of Justice?

All of these answers and more will hopefully come in due time. In the meantime, why don’t you take this opportunity to revisit the delightful and charming tap number “Super Friend” from The Flash/Supergirl musical crossover:

The Flash premieres Nov. 16 at 8 p.m. on The CW.

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.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has officially announced that it will release Batwoman: The Complete Second Season on Blu-Ray and DVD. The release will be available for purchase on September 21.

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.
