Batwoman is Back & Black With a New Costume

It’s no secret that movies have had an issue with representation , especially the ones that are based on books or comics. Which is why it was exciting to see a Black woman as the star of the new Batwoman series. The show has been renewed for another season and there are some changes that have been made. The CW has released a first look at actress Javicia Leslie in the new Batwoman costume and they didn’t disappoint.

A few days ago, CW along with Warner Bros., who produces the show, released two posters with Leslie’s character donning long curly hair with red streaks in her new costume which features a new mask, red armbands, shorter boots, and a standout red bat emblem that leaves no question of who she’s representing. According to the official press release, fans won’t be seeing this suit right away in the upcoming season.

“I love the fact that Ryan is becoming her own Batwoman—it’s her style, her swag, and her moment!...It was an honor to be able to collaborate with [the designers]. 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!”

As the first Black woman to portray Batwoman in a live action film or TV show.
