The CW announced that actress Javicia Leslie has been cast as the new Batwoman following the departure of Ruby Rose in the first season.

Meet your new Batwoman -- Javicia Leslie. The German-born actress has taken over Ruby Rose's role in the CW's 'Batwoman' and we're here for all this #BlackGirlMagic moment as it hopefully paves the way for more Black women to play superheroes (wink wink: Janelle Monae).
