The jam-packed Flash movie had few problems but Sasha Calle who plays Supergirl reveals how important a female Latina superhero will be in the DCEU.
Speaking to V Magazine, Calle said, “Representation in the entertainment industry really matters, and I'm super honoured, honestly to be the first Latina Supergirl.”
She added, “There was a moment when we were shooting when Andy was like, 'Hey, come over here and watch this scene on the playback monitor.' And I go over and I see Supergirl, and she's in her full glory.”
Calle also said, “And suddenly, I got really emotional. Because I'm looking at that, and I'm like, 'Wow, I wish I would have had this when I was little.'”
She added, “It meant a lot to me. I turned into child Sasha watching this person. So it's really important. And I'm really happy and really thankful to DC and Warner Bros. for doing this now.”
Finally, Sasha Calle said, “It's so cool that we're doing this, and, you know, it's about time.”
First announced in 2018, Supergirl will finally make her debut on the big screen.
As of now, The Flash movie is set to release on June 23, 2023.
