Since the emergence of the Black Lives Matter movement this June 2020, all the franchises have been working on making their characters more diverse and racially inclusive and this new superhero “Wondergirl” is also one of them.
DC has announced that they are planning on releasing a one hour drama following the life of the Latina Yara Flor with the ancestry of both Amazonian warriors and Brazillian river gods.
Usually, when the suffix “-girl” is added to a superhero’s name, we can expect them to be a “hero support” to the main character. They usually have a more vulnerable back story and are more relatable to the younger audience.
What do we know about the plot of the show?
So far as the plot is concerned, it is speculated that we will see her venture into the underworld to save one of her sisters from the villainous Hades, with the synopsis promising she will “change the history of Wonder Woman forever”
Let’s hope Yara brings a similar energy to the screen. Being the newest addition to the Arrowverse, the fans do have high expectations and we are sure that they would be met as this show has been written by the amazing Dailyn Rodriguez.
Oftentimes, characters of color are written by white writers making them nothing but an assembly of racial stereotypes. But as Yara is being designed by Dailyn, daughter of two Cuban immigrants herself, will make Yara much more deep and exotic.
We hope this article made your day!
