The CWs Naomi has released the series’ final trailer before the premiere. Showrunner Ava DuVernay shared the new trailer Twitter, emphasizing how proud she is to be involved in a show about “Black Girl Learning She’s Actually a Superhero.”
The new trailer introduces us to Naomi (Kaci Walfall), a typical girl who enjoys her teenage years with her friends. But Naomi’s obsession with Superman makes her embark on a journey to find out more about her past, which will make her the heroine she’s destined to be. While Naomi makes no secret of the fact that it’s a teenage superhero show, the new trailer focuses on Naomi’s adventures as an ordinary human, meaning it may take a few episodes before she lets go of her hidden power.
In addition to sharing the new trailer, DuVernay said she’s doing the show because she “wants there to be a show about a black girl who learns that she’s actually a superhero.” Duvernay also points out how she wants this show to be “a great one.”
Naomi was introduced by Brian Michael Bendis in the 2019s Naomi: First season, a comic book that ended with the heroine joining Young Justice. In less than two years before her creation, Naomi has already risen to stardom by becoming a member of the Justice League, where Aquaman gave her her official name: Powerhouse. The explosive reception of Naomi in the comics ensured the production of a pilot by the end of 2020. Last May, the series was the green light for an entire season, meaning Naomi will soon be joining The CW’s Arrowverse.

The series’ regular cast also includes Cranston Johnson (Euphoria) as Zumbado, newcomer Camila Moreno as Lourdes, and Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD alun Alexander Wraith as Dee, an alien from the planet Thanagar.
