As reported on Deadline.com, actor Camrus Johnson (who portrays Luke Fox in the CW Network series Batwoman) is suiting up as the popular DC Comics superhero, Batwing. From the Deadline story (potential story spoilers), “Johnson has portrayed Luke Fox since the pilot. Following his near demise at the hands of Crows Agent, Fox morphs into Batwing in the remaining episodes of Season 2, a journey that leads him to embrace the hero he was destined to become. Batwing (Johnson) will serve as Batwoman’s (Javicia Leslie) crime-fighting counterpart as they work to clean up the mess created in the season two finale. But before Luke Fox can fully embrace the awesome and powerful nature of his super suit he must first overcome his own personal demons.”
Batwing has long been a fan favorite in the DC Comics universe. Our own BlackSci-Fi.com correspondent, Fabian Wood, has written about the character at length in a previous article titled “The Black Knight Rises”. Until Batwing makes his official appearance in the CW Network Batwoman series, check out a scene of the character featured in the animated movie, Batman: Bad Blood.
