I hated the really fake cosplay looking wig that Kate Kane wore. I was hoping that with a totally new BatWoman who is not pretending to be KK she wouldn’t keep the awful wig. It’s not like anyone is going mistake Ryan for Kate.

‘Riverdale,’ ‘Batwoman’ Shut Down Over Testing Delays in British Columbia

Production has shut down on the Vancouver-based “Riverdale” and “Batwoman” due to delays in processing COVID-19 tests in British Columbia, sources tell Variety.

Warner Bros. Television is also delaying production on “Legends of Tomorrow” and “Supergirl,” both of which were supposed to begin filming this week. A representative for Disney Television Studios — which is filming ABC’s “A Million Little Things” and “Big Sky,” as well “The Mighty Ducks” for Disney Plus and “Mysterious Benedict Society” for Hulu — did not respond about the status of those British Columbia-based shows, nor would a representative from Netflix give any details about the status of the streamer’s Vancouver productions. “Maid,” a WBTV show for Netflix from John Wells Productions, has been shut down as well. The status of Sony’s “The Good Doctor” for ABC is unknown.

The filming stoppages are assumed to be temporary, sources say. According to one source, there is a single lab company approved to oversee coronavirus testing, and the company is prioritizing schools, which have reopened in the province, and local businesses.

WBTV recently completed filming on The CW’s “Supernatural,” which in March had stopped filming as the pandemic spread — with only two episodes left to shoot in its 15-season series. In an interview with Variety, co-showrunner Robert Singer detailed how they accomplished it, which involved testing the 360-person crew three times a week.

Because British Columbia has handled the containment of coronavirus well, the province opened for production in June. There are now dozens of movies and television shows filming in Vancouver, or about to, which gives an incentive to the Vancouver Film Commission to fix this problem. The commissioner did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Batwoman casts Gotham actor as 'unpredictable' Victor Zsasz in season 2

By Chancellor Agard

Gotham actor Alex Morf is returning to Batman's beleaguered city.

EW has exclusively learned that Morf will guest star as DC Comics villain Victor Zsasz in Batwoman season 2. According to the official character description, Zsasz is ″a charismatic, skilled hitman with high, unpredictable energy. He proudly carves tally marks onto his skin for every victim he kills."

This isn't the first time Zsasz has jumped from the page to the screen. Most recently, a bleach-blond Chris Messina gave a delightfully deranged performance as the face-peeling killer in 2020's Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). Before that, there was Barry's Anthony Carrigan on Gotham and Tim Booth in 2005's Batman Begins.



When Batwoman returns for its second season, it will be led by Javicia Leslie, whose character Ryan Wilder picks up the Crimson Knight's mantle following Kate Kane's disappearance and Ruby Rose's departure from the series. On top of that, Dominion's Shivani Ghai will recur as Safiyah Sohail, a dangerous figure from Alice's (Rachel Skarsten) past.

During DC FanDome, Leslie previewed that Ryan will face an uphill battle as she adjusts to her new role as Gotham's protector. ″[Becoming Batwoman is] going to be a struggle because when you’re part of a community that has been neglected by the system, that’s the initial community that you feel responsible for helping,″ Leslie said in September. ″You’re going to see that community of Gotham that got overlooked. It’s funny because a lot of Mary’s patients can be examples of that community — that community that gets overlooked by the hospital, by the Crows. It’s a very personal thing, but that will be a huge battle. When [showrunner Caroline Dries] and I were talking about it — just the battle of, they’re not the only ones that need help, but those are the ones that Ryan is attached to that she really wants to be able to help."

In addition to playing a gang leader named Sykes on Gotham, Morf has also appeared on Mindhunter, Manifest, and Marvel's Daredevil.

Batwoman —
which recently resumed production in Vancouver — will return in 2021 on the CW.

Javicia Leslie embraces her power in new Batwoman season 2 teaser

"Time to be powerful."

That's what Javicia Leslie declares in the exclusive Batwoman season 2 teaser above (see article link for video). Clocking in at just 10 seconds, the CW superhero drama's new TV spot reveals the moment Leslie's Ryan Wilder decides to put on the Batsuit for the first time — and what it means to her.

The God Friended Me alum picks up the Crimson Knight mantle following the departure of Ruby Rose, who played original Batwoman Kate Kane, at the end of season 1. A former drug runner, Leslie's character Ryan is living out of her van and haunted by her difficult past when we meet her in the season 2 premiere. However, hope arrives when she finds Kate's Batsuit in the most unexpected way. (What happened to Kate is one of the season's big mysteries.)

After years of feeling like a victim, Ryan views the cape and cowl as the key to never feeling like that again. So, she makes the life-changing decision to suit up in a grimy gas station bathroom (as depicted in the teaser) and heads out to, well, do what Batwoman does: fight crime.
Of course, the suit she puts on in the teaser isn't the one she'll wear for the rest of the series. While Ryan starts out the season in Kate's old costume, she makes the suit her own and debuts her objectively dope new look in episode 3, as revealed in new first look images last month.



The differences between Kate's Batwoman and Ryan's Batwoman aren't just aesthetic, though. What they hope to do with the suit also differs due to their contrasting socioeconomic backgrounds — Kate's privileged upbringing versus Ryan's firsthand experience with Gotham City's failings.

"[Becoming Batwoman is] going to be a struggle because when you’re part of a community that has been neglected by the system, that’s the initial community that you feel responsible for helping," said Leslie during the show's DC FanDome panel. "And that’s what you’re going to see. You’re going to see that community of Gotham that got overlooked. It’s funny because a lot of Mary’s [Nicole Kang] patients can be examples of that community — that community that gets overlooked by the hospital, by the Crows. It’s a very personal thing, but that will be a huge battle. When Caroline and I were talking about it — just the battle of, they’re not the only ones that need help, but those are the ones that Ryan is attached to that she really wants to be able to help."

Also joining Leslie and the rest of the cast in season 2 are recurring guest-stars Shivani Ghai (Dominion) as Safiyah, the oft-referenced intimidating figure from Alice's (Rachel Skarsten) past, and Leah Gibson (Jessica Jones) as the Whisper, Safiyah's loyal henchwoman. Alex Morf (Gotham) will guest-star as DC Comics villain Victor Zsasz.
