A new synopsis for Batwoman‘s upcoming episode confirms Killer Croc’s appearance in season 3. The series created by Caroline Dries for The CW began airing in 2019 as a part of the network’s Arrowverse franchise. Initially, the show focused on the adventures of Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane, as she becomes Gotham City’s new vigilante following the disappearance of her billionaire-philanthropist cousin Bruce Wayne. But Rose quit Batwoman after season 1, forcing the show to find a new heroine for season 2 onwards. God Friended Me‘s Javicia Leslie was subsequently introduced as Ryan Wilder, a street-level hero and ex-convict who takes up Kate’s Batwoman mantle.
Batwoman devoted much of season 2 establishing Ryan as the new superheroine, along with resolving the conundrum of what happened to Kate. The season ended with some thrilling revelations and cliffhangers, with Ryan finding out that her biological mother was still alive and Batman’s villain trophies floating down a river. Those events will factor into the upcoming season 3, leading to the arrival of some notable allies and adversaries from the Batman comics’ lore. Actress Bridget Regan has been confirmed to appear as the plant-manipulating villain Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy, while Gotham‘s Victoria Cartagena is expected to show as Renee Montoya. Riverdale‘s Robin Givens and David Makes Man‘s Nick Creegan are playing Jada and Marquis Jet, respectively, who are presumably Ryan’s mother and brother.
Now, according to the synopsis listed on IMDb, the DC antagonist Killer Croc will make an appearance in season 3 episode 2, titled “Loose Teeth” and scheduled to air on Wednesday, October 20. Per the description, the show will introduce a “new incarnation” of the character, who will add to Ryan’s woes with a murderous rampage in Gotham City. Directed by Jeff Hunt and written by Chad Fiveash and James Stoteraux, “Loose Teeth” will also feature the debut of Givens’ Jada, and explore the new, complicated dynamic between Luke (Camrus Johnson) and Mary (Nicole Kang). Take a look at the synopsis below:
“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.”
Created by Gerry Conway with illustrations from Don Newton and Gene Colan, Waylon Jones/Killer Croc is a key foe from Batman’s rogues gallery. The character made his first full appearance in 1983’s Detective Comics #524, which revealed his backstory as a sideshow wrestler who is transformed irreversibly into a crocodile-like monster by a rare genetic condition. Killer Croc made his live-action debut with David Ayer’s 2016 movie Suicide Squad, where he was portrayed by actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. Season 1 episode 6 confirmed the character was part of the Batwoman universe, and while season 3’s official trailer teased audiences with a brief look at him, the actor playing him in the show is not yet confirmed.
Clearly, Batwoman season 3 is keeping Ryan busy. There are plenty of enemies to deal with, and on top of that, the vigilante also has to confront some personal traumas. As of now, it’s unclear if Killer Croc will appear in a single episode, or be given a story arc that spans the entire season. But, regardless of the degree to which Batwoman incorporates the supervillain, fans are sure to be entertained by his inclusion.
