Most recently from Deadline, Leah Gibson and Nathan Owens are set to making recurring roles in season 2. For a while, fans have wondered what Javicia Leslie’s Ryan Wilder will look like donning the cape and cowl.

Javicia Leslie on DC Fandome revealed a costume change by saying:
“Caroline and I were talking about how important it is that if we’re going to have a Black Batwoman, that she needs to be, like, a sista when she becomes Batwoman, It’s important for her to feel like the silhouette of her could still look like that, with natural textured hair and things like that.”
Batwoman showrunner Caroline Dries also spoke about the bat suit by saying:
“How can we be sure that Ryan isn’t hiding what makes her awesome, with this suit? So it’s going to be a bit of an evolution. We’ll see the suit evolve early on in the season. Ryan is like, ‘For me to feel empowered in this thing, it needs to feel like it’s representing something I’m fighting for.”
