The Flash: Sasha Calle defends that the new DCEU Supergirl is Latina

The Flash, one of the most anticipated DC movies with Warner Bros., will introduce us to Supergirl in the DCEU. Unsurprisingly, this is the character’s first appearance in the DC Extended Universe, an adaptation of the comic book character Lara Lane Kent, played by Colombian-born American actress Sasha Calle. Now, the actress herself has opened up about what it means to Supergirl to be Latina in the movies, saying she’s very proud of it.

“Honored to be the first Latina Supergirl”

This is how Screen Rant takes it up through a recent interview with the actress: “Representation in the entertainment industry really matters, and I feel very honored, honestly, to be the first Latina Supergirl. There was a moment while we were shooting, when director Andy Muschietti said, “Hey, come over here and watch this scene on the playback monitor. “And I get closer and I see Supergirl and she’s in all her glory,” Sasha Calle says.

“And suddenly I got very emotional, like when I was little. It meant a lot to me. I became the Sasha girl seeing this person. So it’s very important. And I’m very happy and very grateful to DC Comics and Warner Bros. to have done this now. It’s great that we’re doing this. And you know, it was about time, ”concludes the actress.

It’s expected that we may continue to see Sasha Calle’s Supergirl in a future series of the character on HBO Max, although as of now there are no further details. The Flash is released in theaters on June 23, 2023, a film that will mark a before and after in the DCEU.
