“Supergirl”: Leading Role Actress Found. It’s a “Game of Thrones” Star

DC Studios has found its new Supergirl. Headed by James Gunn and Peter Safran, the company has decided that the cousin of Superman will be played by Australian actress Milly Alcock, known for her role in the TV series “House of the Dragon.”

“Supergirl”: What Do We Know About the Movie?

The film “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow” will be a standalone story based on the recent comic book series by Tom King and Bilquis Evely. It proposed a complete reinterpretation of the character Kara Zor-El. Gunn described the project when announcing it: we’ll see significant differences between Superman, sent to Earth and raised in a loving family, and Supergirl, raised in Spartan conditions, watching her loved ones die in horrific circumstances. This will be a hardcore Supergirl. You haven’t seen anything like it yet.

In November, Ana Nogueira (“The Vampire Diaries”) was hired to write the screenplay for the film. The search for a director is still ongoing. It’s highly likely that before “Supergirl” hits the screens, we’ll see the titular character in Gunn’s directed spectacle “Superman: Legacy,” set to premiere in July 2025.

Let’s recall that before Alcock, roles of Kara were portrayed by, among others, Melissa Benoist (“Supergirl”) and Sasha Calle (“The Flash”).
