It has been a little over a year since Batwoman was cancelled by The CW, bringing the fan-favorite superhero series to a close after three seasons. The second and third seasons of the show were led by Javicia Leslie, who brought the new character of Ryan Wilder / Batwoman to life, and charmed many fans in the process. In the time since Batwoman‘s cancellation, Leslie has gotten to reprise her role (with a twist) on the ninth and final season of The Flash, but it sounds like there’s even more that she would love to tackle with regards to the character. While speaking to ComicBook.com about her role in the upcoming film Double Life, Leslie touched on what she would want to tackle if she got the opportunity to portray Ryan again.
“Definitely more stunts,” Leslie explained. “I think that Ryan’s fighting sequences are really great, because she’s not a superhero, so it’s not really… I mean, she’s a superhero. She doesn’t have magic powers, so it’s not like she’s like, ‘Da da da da.’ It’s fight scenes, and I love that. I love the fight sequences. I would just [want] more Gotham. I would love to explore more Gotham. Instead of putting her somewhere else, what else can we do in Gotham? Gotham is such a cool world, and it’s a world that I grew up reading and watching and being entertained by. So I think there’s still so much to play with in that world.”
What is Double Life about?
