The CW adds to their already dynamic DC lineup with the upcoming Wonder Girl. This Joëlle Jones rendition of Wonder Girl, also known as Yara Flor, will mark the first Latina Superhero in a DC series further cementing the CW as a force for representation.
Mom is an Amazonian warrior. Dad is a Brazilian river god. What could possibly happen?
Wonder Girl follows Yara, a dreamer that gets more than she bargained for as her powers emerge. She’s stuck in a world not made for her from the political landscape to her brand-new suit.
We get this news in the wake of DC’s release of Yara as the next Wonder Woman in the upcoming “Future State” series set to kick off in January.
Dailyn Rodriguez, also coming in as the lead writer, and Berlanti Productions are set to produce Wonder Girl adding to their fully superpowered multiverse including Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, and Batwoman, which already seek to further represent the LGBT community and people of color, reminding us yet again that not all superheroes wear capes… and then again some do.
