The CW is revving up for the season two premier of Batwoman by releasing the first episode synopsis and a poster. The episode, entitled “What Happened to Kate Kane?”, will introduce Javica Leslie as Ryan Wilder, the next woman to wear the cowl and it will pit her against someone calling himself ‘Bruce Wayne’.
“As friends and family hold on to hope that Kate may still be found, a homeless 25-year-old named Ryan Wilder stumbles upon Kate’s Batsuit. Focused on no longer being a victim, Ryan takes the suit to use as armor and goes rogue in the streets of Gotham, taking out various members of a new gang called the False Face Society. Meanwhile, both Jacob Kane and Luke Fox launch searches for Kate, Mary Hamilton grapples with losing yet another family member, Sophie Moore struggles with things left unsaid to her first love, and Alice is furious that someone got to Kate before she could exact her revenge.
At the same time, “Bruce Wayne” (played by guest star Warren Christie) returns under the pretense of searching for Kate, but the truth is he wants his suit back and it becomes the clash of impostors as “Batwoman” and “Bruce” square off in the action-packed season premiere.”
Season two of Batwoman airs Sunday, January 17th at 8 pm. Along with Leslie will be returning cast members Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Camrus Johnson, Dougray Scott and Nicole Kang. My sources still insist that the REAL Batman, in cape and cowl, will appear in Batwoman, but it will be closer to the end of the season.
