‘Supergirl: Woman Of Tomorrow’: Emilia Jones, Milly Alcock, Meg Donnelly Vying For Title Role

Sorry, Sasha Calle fans. While there was a groundswell of support for the actress to carry on as Supergirl following her impressive debut in The Flash, that doesn’t appear to be happening. James Gunn has his own plans for the DCU, and the upcoming Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow movie. And now we’re seeing some of those plans take shape as a handful of actresses vying for the role of the Kryptonian.

According to Deadline, House of the Dragon breakout Milly Alcock, CODA star Emilia Jones, and The Winchesters actress Meg Donnelly are testing to play Supergirl. It could be that Donnelly has a leg up on her competitors, as she already voices Supergirl in the animated movies Legion of Super-Heroes and Justice League: Crisis On Infinite Earths.

While there is a writer, Ana Nogueira, there’s no director attached to the film yet. It’s Gunn who is deeply involved in the casting right now, which suggests we could see Supergirl in his Superman: Legacy movie coming in 2025. Maybe in a post-credits tag?

There are five movies that are part of DC Studios’ opening chapter, titled “Gods and Monsters”. Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow is going to be a key cog, and whoever lands that role is going to be very busy for a long time.
