In the latest casting news for the upcoming third season of Batwoman, The CW has cast actress Victoria Cartagena as Renee Montoya. This casting is for a fulltime role. Check out the details on how Renee Montoya will be portrayed below and share your thoughts. Batwoman returns this fall on The CW!
Cartagena’s Montoya is a former GCPD officer who left the force when she could no longer stomach the corruption inside the department. She now runs the “freaks division,” which hasn’t seen a lot of action… until now. Righteous and pragmatic, and LGBTQ+, she’s a woman with a very personal (and mysterious) mission to help clean the streets of Gotham in the right way, by whatever means necessary.
Cartagena previously played Renee Montoya on Fox’s Gotham, though the universes are not connected.
In the June 27 Season 2 finale, Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie) has fully taken up the mantle of Batwoman with Kate Kane leaving Gotham in a search for her long-missing cousin Bruce Wayne (aka Batman). It also was revealed that Ryan’s biological mother, who was believed to have died in childbirth, is actually alive.
