Diversity and representation in the Arrowverse

Discuss racial and gender representation in the various television series that comprise the CW’s Arrowverse franchise, such as the introduction of television’s first transgender superhero in Supergirl and the normalized same-sex relationships of Legends of Tomorrow. Present examples/details and discuss their relevance to your overall analysis of the show(s).

  • Okay, good idea. You seem to be a little more focused on gender though, so maybe just tackle that for this article? Or, you could talk about race, gender, and some other difference (are there religious representations in the Arrowverse? Representations of national origin, such as a person who is from a "majority" race but not the same country as everyone else)? – Stephanie M. 3 years ago
  • It's so irritating it gives it a new name, diversity and representation! Give the people that deserve roles and don't question is it because of their race, or choosing. There can't be one day that I don't have to read about 50 topics on it, and we talk about how that is important and so on! Can we have people, all people, just have the audition and I don't need to know if they have been chosen because of anything but their acting. There is literally nothing worse than when you go and I don't know, tell me you will make a Black Superman. Is that something any black man would really want??? I mean it can be seen from space why they do it. Why would any black man want that? Why don't you make a White Black Panther? Is that some white man would want to see? I don't know, but I am sure there are millions of stories and characters from black culture, well I don't expect a lot of white actors to act there once those stories are adapted. I am just wondering, why more of stories like that aren't adapted. That would be something new, something not jet seen. – FictionHorizon 3 years ago
