It’s an action packed movie that sees Smollett’s character take on some major physical and emotional challenges in the name of saving someone you love.

Smollett said That for Hannah, her character Lou, and Dinah, it’s all about “capturing the reality of color femininity” and all of its complexities.

“I think with Hannah in Low, she’s a survivor. She comes from a very broken and abusive background, but she’s very resilient and it’s really the resilience that women have that we really wanted to capitalize on with this story,” Smollett said. “While these women feel very different, they have a lot in common together, and they discover it when forced to work together, work against the elements, and work against conquering this villain.”

She continued, “While yes, my search for Hana was very different from my search of reading a bunch of Black Canary’s picture books, I think it’s just about tapping into the truth about the color of femininity and its complexity. For Lou, she’s spent her whole life in the service.” For Hannah, she devoted her life to motherhood. It’s a completely different conversation we’re having about femininity in the movie.”
