Nick Creegan joins the cast of Batwoman season 3 in a series regular role. He joins newly added Robin Givens and Victoria Cartagena.
Creegan will play Marquis Jet. A sexy playboy who grew up in a lavish lifestyle, Marquis is too charming for his own good and wields his power with a ne’er do well attitude. He views life as one big joke and that sense of recklessness has a tendency to clash horribly with his no-nonsense mother Jada Jet. When he meets Ryan (Leslie), he sees in her a like-minded young go-getter who like him is just waiting for the right opportunity to make his mark on Gotham.
He will join Javicia Leslie as Ryan Wilder/Batwoman, Rachel Skarsten, Meagan Tandy, Camrus Johnson, Dougray Scott, Nicole Kang, and Wallis Day. Original cast member Dougray Scott recently left the series.
In the finale of season 2, Ryan Wilder (Leslie) fully took up the mantle as 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. It also teased the introduction of another queer character to the Batwoman universe: Poison Ivy. The episode ended by showing Poison Ivy’s vines crawling out of the Gotham River and onto the shore.
Cartagena joins Batwoman season 3 as Renee Montoya. Montoya is a former Gotham Cit officer who left the department due to GCPD’s treatment of Gotham’s marginalized citizens. She becomes a vigilante and has dated Kate Kane (Batwoman) in the comics.
Givens is cast as Jada Jet, the CEO of Jett Industries CEO. Her character description reads, “Passionate and hard working, a woman who has worked her way through life’s ups and downs to climb her way to the top — all while being extremely protective over her impetuous son. A woman with a deep past that forced her to give up her first-born child, Jada is a woman with a good heart, but will do whatever it takes to protect her family.”
Batwoman is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros Television.
The third season premieres Wednesday, Oct. 13 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
Creegan is coming off a season-long arc in Law & Order: Organized Crime as Richie Wheatley, Jr., the troubled son of Richie Wheatley (Dylan McDermott). Up next he will star in the adventure comedy Good Egg.
