The new Batsuit is here!

When BATWOMAN season 2 debuts, there will be a new Batwoman with the addition of Ryan Wilder (played by Javicia Leslie), and a new suit is around the corner.

At DC FanDome, Leslie hinted at the changes Batwoman’s costume. “[BATWOMAN showrunner] Caroline [Dries and I] were also talking about how important it is that if we’re going to have a Black Batwoman, that she needs to be a sister when she becomes Batwoman,” Leslie said at the time. “It’s important the silhouette of her to still look like that: more of a natural texture hair and things like that.”

In episode 3, Ryan will show off the new suit, showing Gotham that a new Batwoman is here.

“Ryan’s journey starts from a place of ‘What can this Batsuit do for me?’” Dries said in a statement. “But it’s not long before she realizes the power of its symbol and what it can do for everyone else in Gotham City. As Ryan embraces everything that makes her special, she adjusts the suit to fit her physically and figuratively. This meant creating a new body design and new cowl that was undeniably a statement that screamed ‘powerful.’ [Costume designer] Maya Mani sent me her drawings and I loved it. The wig was something we never perfected in season one, and Janice Workman crushed it with this new take. Javicia and I saw various prototypes of styles and red ombres, and at one point we were trading our own iPad-doodled versions. Janice translated that into what we are looking at now. When I see it, I smile. It makes me feel inspired.”

Added Leslie: “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 Caroline and Maya. 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!”

“I was asked by Caroline Dries to design a Batsuit that was unique to the character of Ryan Wilder; as she is a highly skilled fighter, encapsulating her raw, athletic, and passionate nature was imperative,” Mani said. “As Batwoman, Javicia Leslie not only brings a fresh perspective, but physical strength to the role. It was important for the new suit to define Javicia’s commanding presence while showcasing her athleticism and allowing her the freedom to express the physical nature of Batwoman, all while looking ultra-cool in the process!”
