A new look at Sasha Calle‘s Supergirl from ‘The Flash‘ is revealed. Calle’s Supergirl looks exactly like a comic version of Supergirl. During 2021’s DC FanDome event, the first look at Calle’s Supergirl was revealed in a short teaser of ‘The Flash’. See the image below.
Speaking to V magazine, Calle open about a moment on the set of The Flash when director Andy Muschetti showed her a scene as Supergirl and what it meant. “Representation in the entertainment industry really matters, and I’m super honored, honestly [to be the first Latina Supergirl],” Calle said. “There was a moment when we were shooting when Andy was like, ‘Hey, come over here and watch this scene on the playback monitor.’ And I go over and I see her [Supergirl], and she’s in her full glory. And suddenly, I got really emotional. Because I’m looking at that, and I’m like, ‘Wow, I wish I would have had this when I was little.’ It meant a lot to me. I turned into child Sasha watching this person. So it’s really important. And I’m really happy and really thankful to DC and Warner Bros. for doing this now. It’s so cool that we’re doing this, and, you know, it’s about time.”
