It’s official. DC Studios has a brand new Supergirl.
On Monday, Deadline confirmed that Milly Alcock had been selected as the new Supergirl for James Gunn and Peter Safran’s new DC Universe. While rumors have suggested she’ll appear in Superman: Legacy, Deadline notes that has not yet been confirmed. Alcock will, however, make an appearance somewhere before ultimately headlining her own solo film, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow.
Alcock, who is best known as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen in HBO’s House of the Dragon, managed to beat out CODA actress Emilia Jones and Meg Donnelly. Donnelly, who was said to be among the finalists earlier this month, has previously voiced the character for DC’s animated films, Legion of Superheroes and Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths Part One.
Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow was initially announced in November 2023. At the time, it was revealed that Ana Nogueira would pen the screenplay as part of DC’s studio press day. As it stands, there is currently not a director attached to the project.
