3 posts in this topic


The CW could soon be adding yet another DC series to its ever-growing superhero lineup. Deadline reports the network is developing an adaptation of Naomi, based on the 2019 limited series from writers Brian Michael Bendis and David F. Walker and artist Jamal Campbell.

Naomi is being developed by New Gods director/co-writer Ava DuVernay and former Arrow writer/co-executive producer Jill Blankenship. DuVernay and Blankenship are both writing and executive producing the new series. Naomi will be produced through DuVernay’s Array Filmworks in association with Warner Bros Television.

Naomi revolves around a new teen heroine named Naomi McDuffie (her surname being a tribute to the late Dwayne McDuffie). Her eponymous comic series explores her struggle to come to terms with her newfound powers and her unusual role in the DC Universe. The character has also gone on to play a recurring role in Bendis' Young Justice comic.
