James Gunn Nears Decision on DCU Supergirl Casting for Upcoming Reboot

Guess what, superhero fans? James Gunn, the creative brain behind the new DC Universe (DCU), is almost done picking the actor to play Supergirl! Right now, they’re looking at two awesome actors for the role, Milly Alcock and Meg Donnelly.

Why the Change?

So, the last Supergirl, Sasha Calle, couldn’t keep the role after “The Flash” movie didn’t do so well. Now, James Gunn wants a fresh face to rock the Supergirl cape in his new DCU.

Meet the Contenders:

First up, we’ve got Milly Alcock from “House of the Dragon.” She’s pretty cool. The second is Meg Donnelly, who you might remember from “The Winchesters.”

Who’s in the Lead?

Here’s the scoop: Meg Donnelly is a bit ahead. Why? Because she’s not new to the Supergirl scene. She already lent her voice to Supergirl in some animated movies. That’s some real superhero experience! First, Supergirl will pop up in James Gunn’s “Superman: Legacy” alongside Superman, played by David Corenswet. But her big moment will come in her very own movie, “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow,” hitting screens on July 11, 2025.

What James Gunn Says:

Gunn shared that Supergirl’s story is different. She’s raised on a piece of Krypton, seeing some tough stuff. So, she’s not your usual superhero – she’s got a bit more edge!

While Ana Nogueira is busy writing the Supergirl script, they haven’t picked a director yet. But since James Gunn is handling “Superman: Legacy,” he might just take on Supergirl too.

So, superhero lovers, get ready for a new Supergirl, and mark your calendars for the big movies coming our way!
