The first lesbian superhero in DC film comes soon


As we reported, the TV adaptation of the DC story about the Batwoman is not going to erase that fact that the character is a lesbian. But as for film adaptations of the DC comics, they haven’t been LGBT-inclusive. Until now, the DC officials ensure. Birds of Prey, a spin-off from the box office hit Suicide Squad, will show Harley Quinn in a group of female superheroes. Alongside Black Canary and Huntress, who have both featured in Arrow, and Cassandra Cain’s Orphan, the gang will include Renee Montoya, a lesbian Gotham City detective, an immigrant from Dominican Republic, whose superhero identity is The Question. And she has a crush on the Batwoman. The superhero can control her nervous system, deaden herself to physical pain, and is trained in hand-to-hand combat and Dragon Style Kung Fu – though she does also suffer from alcoholism. Montoya has also featured in the Gotham TV series, but this will be her first time on the big screen. The film, which is still called Untitled Girl Gang Movie for now, will be helmed by Cathy Yan, DC’s first Asian female director. DC characters have led the way in LGBT representation, though up until now, it has been exclusively limited to TV shows.
