Leslie previously starred in “God Friended Me” on CBS and is set to debut in the iconic role in January 2021 saying “I am extremely proud to be the first black actress to play the iconic role of Batwoman on television, and as a bisexual woman, I am honoured to join this groundbreaking show which has been such a trailblazer for the LGBTQ+ community.”
