Milly Alcock’s Supergirl Movie Gets An Official Release Date

Supergirl returns to the big screen in 2026!

Milly Alcock House of the Dragon Supergirl James Gunn DC Universe

DC Studios has announced that Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow will premiere in theaters on June 26, 2026. This release makes it the second film to be scheduled under James Gunn and Peter Safran’s revamped DC Studios, following Superman, which is slated for a July 2025 release.

Director Craig Gillespie, known for his distinctive filmmaking style with projects like I, Tonya and Cruella, will helm the Supergirl movie, starring Milly Alcock as Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin. Production for the DC Universe film is set to start this fall, aiming to bring a new vision of the iconic heroine to the big screen.

The casting process for Supergirl was closely overseen by James Gunn. Given the character’s potential involvement in other DC Studios projects beyond Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, the casting decision was particularly crucial. For now, Milly Alcock’s Supergirl is expected to make her debut before her standalone movie.

Written by Ana Nogueira, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow is a fresh take on Supergirl, distinct from the legacy left by previous DC Films head Walter Hamada and separate from the interconnected storyline of the previous DC film lineup, including The Flash. The film draws inspiration from a recent comic book series by Tom King and Bilquis Evely, which was published between 2021 and 2022.

Who Is Superman: Woman of Tomorrow writer Ana Nogueira?

As Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow begins to take shape under Ana Nogueira’s pen, the project is still in its early stages, with several key components yet to be finalized. The film does not have a director attached, nor has a release date been set, reflecting the recent closure of Nogueira’s deal.

Ana Nogueira may be familiar to readers from her acting stints on The Vampire DiariesThe Michael J. Fox Show and The Blacklist. Beyond her acting achievements, Nogueira has also carved out a successful career in writing. Her play Which Way to the Stage made its off-Broadway debut in 2022. She is also involved in adapting the short story Mothers, Lock Up Your Daughters for Warner Bros. and 21 Laps.
