It has been announced by the CW that Renee Montoya will be joining Catherine Reid and Melissa Benoist as a series regular in season 3 of batwoman.

Renee Montoya in Batwoman Season 3

Renee Montoya has been announced as a series regular; for batwoman season three, joining Catherine Reid and Melissa Benoist in the cast. Her role on Batwoman; will be an original creation; of Renee’s character; that doesn’t exist in comics or other media yet.

Fans were unhappy with how quickly the decision came about; despite it being a reoccurring character.

Many speculated that the new showrunner, who is an openly gay woman herself, wanted to have a more diverse cast; for her own project. And this was a way of keeping Montoya in batwoman; while also having someone running it better; than Ben Edlund did. Fans were not pleased with how quickly it happened; without much warning. But many are excited to see what’s coming now since they know there will be strong representation; on-screen from the LGBT community. They’re hopeful too that Renee Montoya; might get some development outside; of being just another sidekick or damsel-in-distress type character, as she has been seen so far in Gotham.

Renee Montoya Batwoman Season Three Introduction

Batwoman’s third season will introduce viewers to a new character that appeared briefly in the previous seasons: Detective Renee Montoya! The addition of this diverse female superhero comes as no surprise given how prevalent they are on television today. In fact, with more than 60 years’ worth of comic book history at their disposal for inspiration – BATWOMAN has introduced over 50 versions of themselves into continuity. And while all those iterations have been different when it comes to their origin stories, the one thing they have in common is that their lives are defined by a desire to help others.

Will Renee Mortaya a villainous character in Batwoman Season 3?

The answer is no. In DC Comics, Renee Montoya has a long history as both a villain and hero in Batman’s world – but on ‘Batwoman,’ she’ll show up to be one of Kate Kane’s friends.

Batwoman Season 1 and Season 2 Reviews and Ratings

The first season of BATWOMAN is one that had a lot of hype surrounding it. Many people thought this could be the next GAME OF THRONES; with its interesting story tied into ancient folklore, strong female characters, and beautiful cinematography. I was excited to see what they would do for their lead-in show; since all other CW DC shows seemed to have taken a backseat; in popularity compared to Arrowverse; shows like THE FLASH or SUPERGIRL.
