The film also introduces Aldis Hodge as Hawkman and Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher. Additionally, Sarah Shahi has a supporting role.
Yeah because there’s a level of realism in the character and that’s just really beautiful. Seeing what they’re doing with the script and seeing what they’re doing with DC as a whole is just really beautiful. It’s inspiring, the direction that they’re going in, and being able to be a part of that process lines up with every other project. It definitely means something. The values that it has at its core are values that line up with what I believe in and what I look up to.
Quintessa Swindell is currently filming HBO’s In Treatment alongside Uzo Aduba. They are a breakout star of the hit Netflix series Trinkets and also had a memorable turn in HBO’s acclaimed series Euphoria. In the can is the Neil Burger feature Voyagers opposite Colin Farrell and Tye Sheridan, which Lionsgate hopes to release next year.
