Canadian actor Peter Outerbridge has been cast to play villain Roman Sionis, aka Black Mask in the second season of DC/CW show Batwoman. Outerbridge is known for his roles in Suicide Squad, Saw VI and Lucky Number Slevin. He recently appeared in recurring roles on Orphan Black, 12 Monkeys and The Expanse.
Following the surprise departure of Ruby Rose from Batwoman at the end of The CW superhero drama’s first season, the show has opted to create a new character to play Batwoman rather than recast Rose’s charecter of Kate Kane (a cousin of Bruce Wayne). It has now confirmed that actress Javica Leslie has been cast in the lead role from Season 2 and moving forward.
