“I felt it was important that viewers could tell by the silhouette that Batwoman was a Black girl. With the form-fitting suit and beautiful Afro, we definitely nailed it!” – Javicia Leslie on becoming Batwoman
The new Batwoman suit idea came from Maya Mani. Mani said, “the design is meant to highlight Leslie’s physical athleticism and offer a fresh take for the new character.” Janice Workman created the new wig and Cory Roberts was the makeup stylist.
