Batwoman season 2 is looking to make a splash in more ways than one. With the introduction of a new Batwoman, Ryan Wilder played by Javicia Leslie the show is also looking to add some notable villains including one that stole the show in WB’s Birds of Prey.
During an interview with Entertainment Weekly show running Caroline Dries talked about what fans could expect from the upcoming second season and who Wilder will face off against in her inaugural year as the caped crime fighter.
We have a couple big bads this season. One, who we teed up midway through last season, is this woman Safiyah, and she sort of Alice’s Achilles’ heel. And ultimately yes with the false face society, we will see the lead of this gang as Black Mas later on in the season-Caroline Dries, Showrunner Batwoman
Dries goes on to point out the False Face Society has direct ties to Wilder’s character and will likely play a much larger role this season with the eventual reveal of Black Mask as its culmination. Wilder ties to drugs and their impact on her life will seamingly lead her to face off again Mask and his gang as she has a personal score to settle.
We don’t know who is playing Black Mask but we are certainly excited by the prospect and do expect a very different take on the character than the over the top and tremendously fun but vicious character Ewan McGergor played in Birds of Prey
