CNBC news correspondent Rachel Maddow is officially Vesper Fairchild in Batwoman. The journalist will be playing Fairchild via voiceovers and news radio segments. Showrunner Caroline Dries has given more details about Fairchild’s role in the show.
We consider Vesper Fairchild to be the sardonic Voice of Gotham. In addition to Rachel’s interest in Batwoman, we thought she’d be the perfect casting choice, because her own hard-hitting journalism wildly contrasts Vesper’s penchant for snark, gossip and criticism of female superheroes.
Batwoman airs on the CW every Sunday.
