Milly Alcock Takes Flight as Supergirl in Gunn and Safran's DC Universe

Milly Alcock, star of House of the Dragon, is set to don the iconic cape as Supergirl in the evolving DC Universe, spearheaded by James Gunn and Peter Safran, Deadline reports. Alcock takes on the role previously played by Sasha Calle in The Flash, marking a watershed moment in the character’s cinematic career.

Supergirl, who has been a staple of DC Comics since her debut in 1959, has gone through several iterations, the most famous of which is Kara Zor-El. Gunn, co-head of DC Studios, closely monitored the casting process, emphasizing the character’s potential future involvement in larger DC projects. The casting of Alcock marks a new creative direction for Supergirl under Gunn and Safran’s visionary leadership.

The upcoming Supergirl film, titled “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow,” deviates from the previous DC film lineup and explores a new story created by screenwriter Ana Nogueira. The film draws inspiration from Tom King and Bilquis Evely’s recent comic book series, providing a unique take on the beloved character.

As the project progresses under Nogueira’s pen, key details remain to be finalized. The film currently lacks a director and has no set release date, indicating that it is still in the early stages of development. Nogueira, best known for her roles in The Vampire Diaries and The Blacklist, is the writer and visionary behind “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow.”

Nogueira’s diverse background, which includes her off-Broadway debut with “Which Way to the Stage” in 2022, demonstrates her abilities as both an actor and a successful writer. Her work on “Mothers, Lock Up Your Daughters” for Warner Bros. and 21 Laps exemplifies her diverse contributions to the entertainment industry.

As Supergirl prepares to soar into a new era, fans eagerly await further announcements, including the selection of a director and the unveiling of a release date for what promises to be an exciting addition to the DC cinematic universe.
