Javicia Leslie will be donning the cape and cowl vacated by Ruby Rose as The CW’s new Batwoman. The actress who recently starred in God Friended Me, will front the new season of the superhero series playing Ryan Wilder who has stepped in to replace Kate Kane. The character is described as likable, messy, a little goofy and untamed. She’s also nothing like Kate Kane, the woman who wore the Batsuit before her. With no one in her life to keep her on track, Ryan spent years as a drug-runner, dodging the GCPD and masking her pain with bad habits. She is also the most dangerous type of fighter: highly skilled and wildly undisciplined.
Law Is Captain Hook

This includes 2003’s Hook by Steven Spielberg, 2003’s Peter Pan by P.J. Hogan and 2015’s Pan, directed by Joe Wright with Hugh Jackman as Captain Hook.
