“You subcontract the Promethium Problem—one of our most important projects—to Kord, Inc.! To Kord, for god’s sake! One of our biggest rivals! You care to tell me why?”angela rockwood as garrison slate
Note: While this character is not meant to replace Harrison Wells in The Flash, this casting did come about after learning about certain spoilers about his character.
The founder of S.T.A.R. Labs has been depicted as different ethnicities in the comics over the years, from black in his first appearance in Blue Beetle to white in his appearances in other DC comics. I originally wanted to cast a black actress with a disability for the part, but was unsuccessful in finding one so I ended up casting an Asian actress with paraplegia instead. It was important that I cast an actress with a disability because what few examples of disabled representation that already exist are often played by able bodied actors. I wanted to subvert that trend by having an actress with a disability play a character with a disability.
Characters in STEM fields with depth and layered characterization are usually reserved for able bodied white men and that’s an archetype that I’ve seen one too many times. Disabled representation is rare and positive examples of women with disabilities are even rarer, let alone examples of women of colour with disabilities or women with disabilities who are scientists. Non-white people with disabilities can be fully self-actualized, complex, and richly characterized and they need to be represented in TV and film. (x)

“The Court finds frightened children like us and transforms them into monsters. But we can’t let them win. we can’t just keep succumbing to the fear. There’s another way. A way to forge your own legacy.”bob morley as calvin rose/talon
Note: It’s pretty rare to see Filipino actors in superhero roles so I thought it would be interesting to have one play a former Court of Owls agent turned Batman ally.
“When the other villains in Arkham ask you who brought you down, you tell them you got burned by Hawkfire.”shay mitchell as bette kane/flamebird/hawkfire
Note: This member of the Bat Family has a tendency to be overlooked so I wanted to showcase her in this continuity by focusing on her foray into crime fighting and her relationship with her cousin Kate.
“That… civilians think it’s a call for help. The bad guys think it’s a warning… but it’s more than that. It’s something higher. It’s a call to arms… I’ve found my way to serve…. .”lexa doig as kate kane/batwoman ii
Note: Before anyone says that Filipinos can’t possibly be Jewish, there’s actually a history of Judaism in the Phillipines and this was an opportunity to show that not all Jews are Ashkenazi.
