It’s unlikely that the name Yara Flor will mean much to you right now. But she is soon to be the name on everyone’s lips.
Created by Joelle Jones, Yara will make her debut as part of DC Future State which kicks off in the pages of DC Comics next January. Yara is a Latina Dreamer whose parents were an Amazon Warrior and a Brazilian River God. When she discovers that she’s Wonder Girl, she must use her newfound powers to fight the evil forces that would seek to destroy the world.
Now Deadline is reporting that development has begun on a live-action series starring the character. The series comes from Queen of South executive producer Dailyn Rodriguez and Berlanti Productions.
Greg Berlanti has helped bring a number of DC projects to the small screen and has won acclaim for the diversity found within their small screen DCTV universe. Under his watch, Berlanti has shepherded DC’s first Black-led series, Black Lightning, and its first led by an LGBTQ+ superhero, Batwoman. Wonder Girl would be the first DCTV series to feature a Latinx character in the starring role.
