You will get to see an iconic character return in Batwoman season 3

The Renee Montoya person was founded in ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ in 1992, as DC’s official website explains. The investigator, usually in an exemplary aspect, was popular enough to translate to comics instead of her boorish counterpart in the Gotham City Police Department, Harvey Bullock. Montoya was traditionally one of Gotham’s few non-corrupt policemen to gain her the confidence of both Commissioner Jim Gordon and Batman. A lesbian, Montoya is once marked by Two-Face, an act that has significant repercussions on her life in her family.

But in the comics, Montoya’s narrative goes an unpredictable way as she is taught to become the mysterious, facial criminal fighter Vic Sage after his death. Later, after finishing the diligent courses, she was also Gordon’s successor at the GCPD.

Kate Kane is her former buddy from Montoya’s comic book origins, so she indeed comes with some exciting backstory in the Arrowvers whenever they choose to portray her on their timeline.

She added, “I think Reneemontoya and I have some unfinished business”, in a tweet sent by Cartagena on 20 July. That’s because this is the second time that Montoya has been played. She also performed the role on Fox’s 2014-2019 TV drama “Gotham” – noteworthy because the universes are not “Gotham” and “Batwoman.”

In the first season of the Gotham season, where Cartagena portrayed Montoya with Crispus Allen, she collaborated with it. Both investigated Thomas’ and Martha Wayne’s murders and finally charged Gordon with killing Osward Cobblepot — protecting Gordon from an assailant when Cobblepot comes to life. Throughout the procedure, it is evident that Montoya rejects Barbara Kean due to her affections, but she concludes by apologising to Gordon.

Cartagena’s said of Montoya, “I welcome her complexity! She (and her writers and Gotham writers) challenge me to keep my toes. I have to be aware of her intentions at all times: she’s sympathetic, stubborn, lovely, clever, angry etc., there’s so much depth and so many layers to play.” She also told DirectSubmit about Montoya, “We are happy with her complexity!

It looks like now she needs to fill large shoes, herself! Cartagena wasn’t the first male to have portrayed Renee Montoya live: Rosie Perez took on the part as a member of the all-women squad in the 2020 Warner Brother’s movie, “Birds of Prey.” It should be emphasised that Renee Montoya’s “Batwoman” is sure to have a different persona than both her predecessors. As indicated before, the “Gotham” version of Fox has never been considered in The CW’s Arrowverse, and the DC Extended Universe of the Films has been called the “Birds of Prey.” So “Batwoman” manufacturers are free to interpret the persona they choose.
