Batwoman has been dropping some wild casting news lately. They recently dropped a bombshell with Krypton’s Wallis Day replacing Ruby Rose as the new Kate Kane. Many have grown quite fond of the newest Batwoman, Ryan Wilder, who is played by Javicia Leslie. She takes on the rising crime wave in Gotham City after Kane went missing following the events of the last season. Even before the series began, we have heard that the iconic Batman villain Black Mask would be making an appearance. He would take on a larger role throughout the season, but there has been radio silence since. Luckily, Deadline has revealed that Peter Outerbridge is taking on the role with our first official look at him in the iconic mask.
Outerbridge is set to play CW’s incarnation of the sadistic Roman Sionis. Sionis is described as a “pragmatic and charismatic CEO,” who plays the white night against the corruption within Gotham City. Yet, when he puts on the mask, he becomes an evil mastermind with a burning hate for the Crows and the vigilantes that prowl the streets. He will do anything to get revenge. We do not know who has brought upon his fury. So, the answer to that question will most likely come with his debut in the upcoming ninth episode.
Batwoman is currently airing its second season on the CW and stars Javicia Leslie, Meagan Tandy, Rachel Skarsten, Camrus Johnson, and Nichole Kang.
