Supergirl: One Step Closer to Casting Completion as Search Narrowed to Two Actresses

Atlanta, Georgia – The search for the actress to play Supergirl in the upcoming DC Studios film, “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow,” has taken a major step forward. Screen tests were held in Atlanta yesterday, with the field narrowed down to two potential actresses. Milly Alcock, known for her role in HBO’s “House of the Dragon,” and Meg Donnelly, who starred in Disney Channel’s “Zombies” franchise, both tested for the role. DC Studios bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran were present during the auditions.

Gunn and Safran have been tasked with reshaping Warner Bros.’s DC Comics films, making Supergirl a key part of their plans. The character, who will debut in Gunn’s Superman film, “Superman: Legacy,” will then go on to headline her own movie, “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow.” This project is connected to a comic book mini-series written by Tom King, published in 2021 and 2022, which aimed to redefine Supergirl as more than just a female version of Superman.

In a video released on social media, Gunn shared his vision for the character, explaining, “She watched everybody around her perish in some terrible way, so she’s a much more jaded character.” Ana Nogueira, actress and playwright, is currently working on the script for the film. As of now, the project does not have a director attached.

The search for the right actress to portray Supergirl has been an ongoing process. Previous actors involved in the selection process included Cailee Spaeny and Emilia Jones. With the field now narrowed down to Alcock and Donnelly, DC Studios is one step closer to casting their Supergirl.

The choice of Supergirl is a crucial element for DC Studios as they continue to shape their slate of films centered around DC Comics characters. The success of the upcoming “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow” could determine the direction of future films within the DC universe. Fans eagerly await the announcement of who will ultimately bring Supergirl to life on the big screen.
