Ruby Rose Had The Best Reaction To Javicia Leslie Landing The Role Of Batwoman
There is a new Batwoman in town, and Ruby Rose could not be happier for the actress.
It has been confirmed that Javicia Leslie, famous for her role in the now-canceled series, God Friended Me , has landed the role of Ryan Wilder.
Rose, who left Batwoman after one season on The CW, took to social media to congratulate Leslie.
The former star of the CW series had this to say: "OMG!! This is amazing!! I am so glad Batwoman will be played by an amazing Black woman. ❤️ I want to congratulate Javicia Leslie on taking over the bat cape. You are walking into an amazing cast and crew. I can't wait to watch season 2; you are going to be amazing !! ❤️."
Leslie responded by: "For all of the little black girls dreaming of being a superhero one day… it's possible!"
Rose shocked fans when she announced she was leaving the show months earlier.
Leslie issued a statement revealing that she is excited about the part: "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 honored to join this groundbreaking show, which has been such a trailblazer for the LGBTQ+ community."
Leslie will take on the role of Ryan Wilder, who is described as: "Likable, messy, a little goofy and untamed. She's also nothing like Kate Kane, the woman who wore the Batsuit before her. With no one in her life to keep her on track, Ryan spent years as a drug-runner, dodging the GCPD and masking her pain with bad habits. Today Ryan lives in her van with her plant. A girl who would steal milk for an alley cat and could also kill you with her bare hands, Ryan is the most dangerous type of fighter: highly skilled and wildly undisciplined. An out lesbian. Athletic. Raw. Passionate. Fallible. And very much not your stereotypical all-American hero."
One fan said: "I'm screaming for you! Welcome to the CW Family! Ayeeee! 💪🏾"
Another commenter claimed: "So happy for you!!! This is f'n awesome!!! You're going to be the most bad a*s bat-woman ever!! 😍"

This backer shared: "AYO!!!!! This is awesome! So happy for you, @javicia! I know a real-life superhero!"
