Batwoman’s Javicia Leslie wants a ‘Super Black’ Arrowverse crossover
The Flash Season 7: Shadowhunters’ Jon Cor plays a creepy villain
Batwoman rang the bell for her second season with an overarching riddle: What happened to Kate Kane? The premiere on Sunday began with Kate’s plane to National City crashing near the river and newcomer Ryan Wilder (played by Javicia Leslie) spotting the batsuit among the rubble. Kate’s body was not recovered, which gives hope to some – including Luke Fox and Kate’s father, Jacob Kane – that she might still be alive. However, others like their twin sister Alice have given up on the idea that the former vigilante survived that fiery collision and is still out there somewhere.
With Kate going missing in action, Batwoman showrunner Caroline Dries says that questions are all around their disappearance won’t subside anytime soon.
« It’s still an ongoing story, » she tells TVLine. « I appreciate it when people say, » Please don’t pull me through. We know Ruby [Rose who left the show in May] is no longer on the show. “I want it to feel incredibly satisfying and take you through a roller coaster ride. All characters have a vested interest in finding Kate and have their own point of view about what happened to her. I think the journey to the bottom line will be worth it for the drive. “
Kate’s absence means that Wilder will step in as the new Batwoman and her rise to superhero status will come with its own complications. During the season two premiere, Tommy Elliot (who wore Bruce Wayne’s face) shot her with kryptonite, and remnants of the crystalline material remained in the wound. Dries says it will « only get worse » for Ryan after failing to tell the Bat Team the extent of her injury.
« Getting shot with that kryptonite is a metaphor for many things Ryan has to be a hero and prove herself as she deals with this big problem of having kryptonite in her blood and keeping it a secret from the whole world, « explains Dries. » For me as a writer, it’s kind of a metaphor for women and women of color, especially [who] have to go above and beyond to prove themselves and what they are secretly struggling with just to be considered equal or accepted. ”
The wound will matter to Ryan, the next Her new duties as Batwoman will also deal with homelessness and unemployment.
« If she admitted anything was affecting her [like the kryptonite], she would feel like she was being viewed as weak, and that is it Only thing they are not l can be seen as now. They’ll watch their fight throughout the season and trust Luke and Mary, whose main focus is finding Kate, ”says Leslie. « Ryan knows that, and there’s this constant comparison with [Kate]. After a while, Ryan says, » I’m here and you don’t even see me. « According to Dries, Luke Wilder is reluctant to accept Wilder as the new Batwoman there it would also mean accepting that Kate is dead. « He’s really having problems with that, » Dries adds. « Nothing against Ryan, it’s that he doesn’t want to say goodbye to Kate. If Ryan and Luke’s dynamic starts with some friction, it will develop into a true brother-sister dynamic. But ultimately Ryan has to put her foot down to say, « Look, I’m the one who wears the symbol. I’m the one who takes the bullets. I’m the one who literally puts myself in danger, so I’m the leader here I am Batwoman. « They become respectful of her, but there is always the push and pull. Everyone has opinions in this bat cave. “
