Russell Tavaroff Makes His First Appearance in Batwoman Episode 2.11 Photos

The CW has debuted a new set of promotional photos for the upcoming eleventh episode of Batwoman season 2. The next installment will see the live-action debut of Russell Tavaroff, as portrayed by Jesse Hutch. In the comics, Russell was close to Lucas Fox before getting exposed to Snakebite — an offshoot of Bane’s Venom serum. He went on to become the villain known as Menace. Russell is also obsessed with ruining the life of his old friend.

In the live-action adaptation, it appears that he is one of Jacob Kane’s Crows, which may give him a different origin story. Additionally, the rest of the pics tease that there will be a tense encounter between the leader of the Crows and Sophie, some talks between Ryan and Lucas, and more. On top of that, Black Mask will continue to make his presence known.
