Naomi: New Gods director Ava DuVernay’s new DC series under development at CW

CW will soon have the potential to add yet another DC series to its ever-growing lineup of superheroes. The deadline reports that the network is developing Naomi’s adaptations. It is based on the 2019 limited series by authors Brian Michael Bendis and David F. Walker and artist Jamal Campbell. / Co-Executive Producer Jill Blankenship. Both Du Vernay and Blankenship are the authors and executive producers of the new series. Naomi will be produced through DuVernay’s Array Filmworks in collaboration with Warner Bros. Television.

Naomi revolves around a new teenage heroine named Naomi McDuffy (her surname is a homage to the late Dwayne McDuffy). Her eponymous comic series explores her struggle to understand her new powers and her unusual role in the DC Universe. The character also plays a repetitive role in the Bendis Young Justice comics.

Naomi’s official log line says: “‘Naomi’ is after a teenage girl travels from a small town in the northwest to the heights of the Multiverse. When supernatural events undermine her hometown, Naomi reveals its origins. Attempts to try, and what she discovers will challenge everything we believe in about our hero. “

The deadline does not specify whether Naomi is part of the Arrowverse, but the previous resumption of blankenship and the fact that the comic relies on Naomi’s location within the larger DCU superhero community. Given that, the series is likely to take place in the same world at CW as The Flash, Supergirl, Batwoman, and various other DC shows.

Arrow’s best episode

I recently learned about a new Wonder Girls series focused on Yarafroll, a character who will soon make a comic debut as part of DC’s Future State Crossover. Black Lightning is also reported to have a spin-off focused on Jordan Calloway painkillers. This seems to be aimed at replacing the parent series following the fourth and final seasons. Arrow was also expected to get its own spin-off in the form of a green arrow and canary, but much has been said about the project since Arrow finished eight seasons in early 2020. not.
