The CW is constantly expanding, and now they welcome a new series into the fold. DC comic Naomi arrives at the CW, and a new official has been released. The show stars Kaci Walfall (Army wives, power) as title character and Ava Duvernay will write and act as executive producer for the show, with Amanda Marsalis directing the pilot.
On April 30, The CW offered fans a preview of Walfall as Naomi. From the image, they sought to recreate the cover of the number one comic book created by Brian Michael Bendis and David F. Walker.
The comic follows Naomi McDuffie, a teenage girl from a small town who discovers she has superpowers and hopes to respond to what happened to her homeworld. She seeks help controlling her powers, so she searches for Superman in Metropolis, and he agrees to help her. As she accepts her newfound power, she explores The DC Multiverse, trying to find answers about his past.
Naomi has not received a production order, but the pilot is currently in production. If a series is approved, the character will join the pantheon of current CW heroes as Flash, Superman & Laws, and Legends of tomorrow. There is no confirmation if the series would exist inside or outside of the Arrowverse, but with its ties to Superman and the Justice League, I doubt the CW will keep it out of the world they have. created.
