Batwoman Season 2 is about to add a new superhero to its roster — Batwing. The DC character will be making his first live-action appearance soon.

Camrus Johnson, who has portrayed Luke Fox since the start of the series, shared images of his character suited up as Batwing on his Twitter page.

Johnson’s association with Batwing goes beyond the screen—his Batwing comic book was released on the same day Batwing’s introduction on The CW’s Batwoman was announced.

Batwing is set to appear in the season finale of Batwoman Season 2, and will join Batwoman to fight the various villainous elements in Gotham City.

Batwoman Season 2: Who is Batwing?

Deadline covered the announcement about Batwing’s imminent arrival along with details from costume designer, Maya Mani.

Mani has been the designer for a number of The CW shows, and designed the costumes for both Batwomen, Ruby Rose and Javicia Leslie.

According to Mani, the Batwing suit represents the close bond between Luke and his late-father, Lucius. There will be fantastical elements to the suit that we haven’t seen in the other superhero suits in the CWVerse so far.

“It was conceived within the realm of a child’s imagination; the suit is a bit fantastical and based on the whimsy of a young boy’s dream – complete with rocket boosters and hidden bits that pop out!”

The description of the suit follows events in Batwoman Season 2 that saw Luke Fox shot and almost killed for no fault of his own. The investigation into the attack on Luke led to the dissolution of the Crows, a corrupt law enforcement organization that terrorized Gotham more than helping it.

However, Luke’s near-brush with death made him question whether living was worth the trouble, especially since he couldn’t be with his father. Designing a suit that honours Lucius and protects Luke as he defends his city is the best way to go forward for the character and the show.

Speaking of Batwing’s upcoming appearance, Johnson told Deadline: “The main reason I wanted to be in Batwoman was for this opportunity – to give kids like me another black hero to look up to and relate to. It’s hard not to smile when I catch myself in the mirror with the bat symbol on my chest, and I’ll keep smiling through every fight scene, every awesome stunt, and every Gotham night where Batwing is finally in the field!”

In the DC Comics, David Zavimbe, a police officer in the Democratic Republic of Congo, was the first Batwing, before the mantle was passed onto Luke Fox.

During DC Rebirth, Luke prioritized his work over being Batwing, but returned to being the superhero when Tim Drake was apparently killed. Batwing has been a part of the Bat-Family ever since.

The second season of Batwoman has gone from strength to strength. The addition of Batwing, even if only in the season finale, will be the icing on the cake for fans.
