Ruby Rose Congratulates Javicia Leslie On Her New 'Batwoman' Role

The superhero drama previously starred Ruby Rose in its first season, but in May, the 34-year-old actress confirmed via a statement obtained by Fox News that she had exited the show. She also denied fan speculation that the show planned to "erase" Kate.

Leslie will portray a new character on the show named Ryan Wilder.

Javicia Leslie is the newest Batwoman.

Javicia Leslie, who is also bisexual, will take on the cape and cowl for the CW television show when it returns for its second season in January.

Leslie's previous credits include The Family Business and Always a Bridesmaid, though this is arguably her biggest role to date.

The casting decision has been welcomed online, with Rose commenting on Instagram that Leslie was an "amazing" choice to lead the second season of Batwoman. "I can't wait to watch season 2 you are going to be wonderful!"

The former star of the CW series headed to her Instagram page to congratulate Javicia Leslie.

She added: 'You are walking into an unbelievable cast and crew. 'I can't wait to watch season 2 you are going to be amazing!'

In May, just days after the first season finale of Batwoman aired, Ruby Rose announced she had "made the very hard decision to not return to Batwoman next season". In fact, her disappearance will be one of the mysteries of season two'.

A spokesman for the CW said in a statement: "Warner Bros Television, The CW and Berlanti Productions thank Ruby for her contributions to the success of our first season and wish her all the best".

Ryan has been described as "likable, messy, a little goofy and untamed" as well as a risky fighter who spent years as a drug runner.

Batwoman premiered past year as the first superhero series in television history to feature an avowed LGBTQ person as the central character. An out lesbian. Athletic. Raw. Similarly, Ryan will be the first Black character to become the caped vigilante in any medium.

It continued, "Today, reformed and sober, Ryan lives in [a] van with her plant".
