Nick Creegan Joins ‘Batwoman’ Season 3: Cast, Crew & Fans React
As first reported by Deadline, Creegan has been cast in The CW superhero series as 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 treats life as one big joke, and his reckless abandon causes him to clash with his no-nonsense mother Jada Jet.
A previous casting description mentioned how Marquis had a run-in as a child with “one of Batman’s more dangerous villains.” It isn’t clear if this will be part of his story in the upcoming season. What we do know is that when he meets Ryan (Javicia 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.
Following the news, Creegan took to social media to share his excitement. “As a kid, I used to wonder what it would be like to live in Gotham City…never expected to find out as an adult,” he wrote.

Batwoman writers Maya Houston, Natalie Abrams and Daphne Miles publicly welcomed Creegan to the “BatFam.” Meanwhile, Camrus Johnson, who plays Luke Fox/Batwing on the show, shared his thoughts with the purple devil-faced emoji. “Idk if they’re ready for us on screen together my dude!!!” Creegan responded.
