Ava DuVernay‘S Naomi The DC series has received a few new images giving us our first look at the Agent of Marvel SHIELD alum Alexander Wraith as Dee, an alien from the planet Thanagar. In the comics, Thanagar is home to classic Justice League members Hawkeye and Hawkgirl, which could make the new series deeply connected to the DC Universe at large.
The images, revealed by EW, featuring Dee with a pair of giant metal wings getting ready for battle. Follow the star Kaci Walfall, who plays the famous hero, Dee “just like her [Naomi] Mr. Miyagi. In the words of Walfall, Dee “really believed in her more than she could possibly believe in herself. Though he doesn’t have all the answers, he’s increasingly teaching her how to control herself.” At a glance, Dee will be Naomi’s teacher when the high school student gains her superpower.
Dee, however, should only be one of the people who influenced Naomi’s choices because Laws & Orders: Special Victims Unit star Stephanie March recently joined the show as an alien acting as a guide character for the heroine. Walfall also said the Thanagarians aren’t the only iconic alien race to be part of the show. As the star said, “I believe DC fans will be pleasantly surprised by the cameos in our universe.” Naomi will be a teenage girl running a Superman fansite in the series, which could lead to a meeting between the Kryptonians as Naomi decides to use her newfound powers to fight crime.
Naomi was introduced by Brian Michael Bendis in 2019 Naomi: Part One, a manga arc that ends with the female lead joining Young Justice. In less than two years before her creation, Naomi rose to stardom as a member of the Justice League, where Aquaman gave her the official nickname: Powerhouse. Naomi’s explosive reception in the manga is guaranteed produce a pilot in late 2020. Last May, the series was lighted for an entire season, meaning Naomi will soon be joining The CW’s Arrowverse.
Naomi marks Walfall’s first lead role after appearing in Military wives, People interested, and most recently, Power. The main cast of the series also includes Cranston Johnson (Happiness) as Zumbado and newbie Camila Moreno like Lourdes.
Naomi there is no release date yet, but since The series started production in August of last year, we can expect it sometime in 2022. Check out the new images below.
Johnson is also known for playing Kimberly Hart in ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’.
