While Batman is AWOL from Batwoman, one of the Dark Knight’s adversaries is heading to Gotham City this month for a guest appearance in the third season of The CW’s DC superhero show, with a synopsis for the October 20th episode ‘Loose Tooth’ revealing that a “new incarnation” of Killer Croc is set to clash with Javicia Leslie’s masked vigilante.
“When a new incarnation of Gotham’s swamp slumming Killer Croc surfaces and starts racking up a body count, the inaugural team-up of Batwoman (Javicia Leslie) and Alice (Rachel Skarsten) is put to the test. But Alice isn’t the only unwanted intrusion into Ryan’s life when Jada Jet (Robin Givens) shows up at Wayne Enterprises, insisting on meeting the company’s new CEO. Luke (Camrus Johnson) and Mary’s (Nicole Kang) relationship is strained under the weight of a secret Luke is keeping, while Sophie (Meagan Tandy) finds herself becoming part of Ryan’s inner circle.”
Killer Croc has previously been portrayed on by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad movie, although his Batwoman appearance will mark the character’s live-action debut on the small screen.
Batwoman stars Javicia Leslie’s Ryan Wilder in the title role as the DC heroine alongside Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Nicole Kang, Camrus Johnson, Robin Givens, Victoria Cartagena, Nick Creegan, Amitai Marmorstein and Bridget Regan.
Batwoman season 3 premieres on October 13th on The CW.
