The Speed the film seems to be the perfect combination of looking to the past and pushing the future as it will not only bring back Michael Keaton’s Batman, Ezra Miller’s car will also introduce Supergirl into the DCEU for the first time, with starring Sasha Calle as only the second cinematic incarnation of Steel Girl. Thanks for the photos, we know that Calle’s Supergirl will be a unique interpretation of the heroine, based on a few different versions of her in the comics.
In keeping with this innovative approach to the character, the latest information suggests that the studio wants to use Kryptonian to mark a major milestone in the franchise. According to a new rumor shared by tip expert Daniel Richtman on his Patreon site, Warner Bros. is trying to portray Supergirl as bisexual in the DCEU. That’s all we know right now, so we can’t say if this is something that will be explored in the future. The Flash or saved for a future movie.
Both the MCU and DCEU are in the process of working to represent their LGBTQ+. The couple of them seem to be at a stage where they’re ready to verbally confirm a protagonist is bisexual, like Harley Quinn in Birds of prey and Loki in Loki, but haven’t plucked up the courage to actually show this on screen yet. If WB really wants Calle’s Kara Zor-El (if that’s who she’s playing) to be bi, then hopefully, they’ll actually provide her with a storyline that reflects that.
For years, DC fans have been hoping for The CW’s Superwoman will see Melissa Benoist’s Kara alongside Lena Luthor, although that seems unlikely in the show’s ongoing sixth and final season. But maybe the DCEU can finally provide the representation everyone is looking for in the Arrowverse.
The Flash is in production in the UK ahead of its theatrical release on 4 November 2022.
