It’s taking shape!
According to Variety, the new DC Comics series has just found its protagonist. Kaci Walfall will play Naomi in the heroine’s solo series. Also according to the website, three other actors were chosen for the project: Alexander Wraith, Cranston Johnson and Camila Moreno.
At the moment, the pilot for the series is in development, signed by Ava DuVernay and Jill Blankernship. It is only after the fact that we will know whether the series is moving forward or not.
In the plot we will follow the story of Naomi, a confident, cool and calm student. Popular with the other kids in her military town, Naomi isn’t afraid to become a big comic book geek. The girl’s life changes after a supernatural event, which makes her discover that she has powers. Now Naomi seeks to discover her true destiny.
Alexander Wraith will play Dee, the owner of a tattoo parlor. When a strange event turns the city into chaos, he knows more than he suggests; Cranston Johnson will play Zumbado, the mysterious owner of a used car store who tries to forget about rumors about his past. Even if Naomi tries to avoid it, a tense encounter between the two will make them curious to understand what is going on; Camila Moreno will be Lourdes, a young woman with a sarcastic sense of humor who works in a vintage collectibles store and has a crush on Naomi. She shares her obsession with classic comics with the protagonist and is more than happy to be a part of what happens in the heroine’s life.
If approved, Naomi will be part of Arrowverso, which currently only has Batwoman, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. Supergirl and Black Lightning will only have one more season. Superman & Lois Lane is expected to be the only new series coming this year. In development, we only have the Painkiller series, a Black Ray spin-off. Wonder Girl, which focused on Brazilian Wonder Woman Yara Flor, was canceled while still in development, as were Green Arrow and The Canaries.
