The CW announced last month that Kate Kane aka Batwoman, the character Ruby Rose played in the show’s first season, will go missing in the upcoming season. Part of the mystery of the show’s second season will be finding out what happened to Kate Kane.
Grant Gustin who plays The Flash on The CW’s most popular show also took to Instagram last night to welcome Javicia Leslie to the Arrowverse.
Fans best know Leslie for her two seasons on the show “God Friended Me”. The show also stars Violett Beane who has played Jesse Quick on The Flash for several seasons. With the connection between Beane and Leslie, this has sparked speculation of a return of Violett Beane.
