The CW has announced the premiere dates for four of their Arrowverse shows, including the newly cast Batwoman.

The first season of the show saw Ruby Rose take on the role of Kate Kane, as she attempted to hunt down the mysterious Alice who was targeting her father’s company.

After trying to find her cousin, Bruce Wayne, Kane decided to take on the Batwoman mantle, getting one of her cousin’s suits altered for herself.

The season ended with quite a few twists, including a glimpse of Bruce Wayne’s face and the revelation that Kane had a second piece of Kryptonite.

When does Batwoman season 2 premiere?

There’s a lot of anticipation in the lead up to this next season, with a new character meaning new potential. The show is set to be the first of the Arrowverse to return, with its season two premiere on January 17, 2021.

This will be followed by Black Lightning premiering on February 8, The Flash on February 23, and new show Superman and Lois, which will have its pilot air straight after The Flash.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and the final season of Supergirl are among those yet to get a premiere date due to the ongoing global health situation.

Who will be playing Batwoman?

Newcomer Javicia Leslie will be taking over as Ryan Wilder this time around, after Ruby Rose stepped down as Kate Kane following season one.

The actress shared the first look at her batsuit on Instagram at the end of October.

“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,” said Leslie in a statement.

A teaser for the upcoming season, which Leslie tweeted out for fans, saw her character suit up for the first time. The short clip ends on a strong note, with Ryan Wilder saying: “Time to be a powerful.”

She can also be seen putting on her leather boots and the famous cowl, becoming Batwoman.

Wilder will be wearing the original suit for the first few episodes and then her new look is expected to be introduced in episode three.

Ryan Wilder is a new creation for the Arrowverse, so little backstory is known about her so far.

These announcements mean that excitement for season two is going to build up even more so than before, and now that we know about the premiere, there is finally a date to look forward to.

As if we weren’t excited enough for WandaVision, it’s now been revealed that one episode of the Disney+ show will take inspiration from hit sitcom The Office.

There’s not long to go until Marvel’s latest TV series WandaVision hits our screens on January 15, 2021, and while we still don’t know quite what the storyline is going to be, there are plenty of teasers from those involved about what we can expect.

The new entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe will follow Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda and Paul Bettany’s Vision as they live ideal suburban lives – but soon realize that not everything is as it seems.

The latest hint about what to expect from the new series comes from Marvel boss Kevin Feige, who spoke to Empire about the inspiration behind the unique sitcom-style approach the show will take.

We already know that one episode of the show – most likely the premiere – will take the form of a 1950s sitcom, complete with black-and-white visuals and a live studio audience, who no doubt had to sign some hefty NDAs to make sure nothing leaked.

Now, Feige has teased that the show will gradually progress through the decades, ending up with an episode inspired by none other than hit mockumentary series The Office. And yes, there will be fourth-wall-breaking confessionals from Wanda and Vision.

“I loved TV, and watched far too much The Dick Van Dyke Show and I Love Lucy and Bewitched and everything,” Feige said of the shows that inspired WandaVision. “We go up to the Modern Family and The Office style. The talk-to-the-camera, shaky-camera, documentary style.”

It certainly seems like WandaVision will be different from anything Marvel have done before, and the news of an episode inspired by The Office has got fans pitching their dream scenarios of what could happen.

“Will it have a cameo from Michael Houdini?” joked one Reddit user, while another added: “I’m going to love this show so much. It’s such an odd and creative idea that completely breaks away from the Marvel formula.”

As for the show’s impact on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was recently revealed that WandaVision will “directly set up” Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, which comes out in 2022, with Wanda/Scarlet Witch playing “a key role” in the sequel movie.

While we wait for the new Marvel show to hit Disney+ on January 15, 2021, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about WandaVision including casting, plot rumors, and how it will tie into the wider MCU.
