Superwomen’s March on Washington: Roll Call!

Did you turn out for the Women’s March on Saturday? With an estimate of over 2.5 million protesters, I’m willing to bet a lot of you reading this did – and so did some of our favorite superheroes:

Melissa Benoist’s (Supergirl’s Supergirl) picture and sign went viral:

Her fellow CW superheroes were also out in force in Vancouver: left to right we’ve got Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon/Vibe, Flash), Arthur Darvill (Rip Hunter, Legends of Tomorrow), Danielle Panabaker (Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost, Flash), Caity Lotz (Sara Lance/White Canary, Legends of Tomorrow), and Keiynan Lonsdale (Wally West/Kid Flash, Flash):

And Arrow’s Vixen, Megalyn Echikunwoke, turned out:

(Looks like their castmate Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak, Arrow) marched as well, though she didn’t take a selfie.)

The DC movies were repped too, with Maggie Gyllenhaal (Rachel Dawes, The Dark Knight):

And Green Lantern’s Blake Lively (Carol Ferris):

Plus an upcoming DC lady: Vanessa Hudgens, star of the new show Powerless:

And a blast from the past with Batman Forever’s Drew Barrymore (Sugar):

Oh, but it wasn’t just DC’s heroes representing! There were quite a few familiar faces on the Marvel side too, including Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Avengers), who spoke in DC:

Natalie Portman (Jane Foster, Thor) spoke as well, at the march in LA:

Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter, Agent Carter) knew her worth in London:
