DC Studios is casting Supergirl!

DC Studios is actively laying the groundwork for casting the role of Supergirl, with plans to conduct screen tests for potential actresses. Among the names being considered are Milly Alcock, Emilia Jones, and Meg Donnelly, as reported by Deadline. While there’s a possibility of the studio directly offering the role to an established star, current indications suggest that the focus is on conducting screen tests in the next few weeks.

The casting process for Supergirl is being closely overseen by James Gunn, co-head of DC Studios. Given the character’s potential involvement in other DC projects beyond the standalone Supergirl movie, the casting decision is particularly crucial. Additionally, the studio is in the process of finding a director for the Supergirl film.

The priority for DC Studios is to secure an actress for the role soon, as she is expected to make her debut in a different DC project before headlining her own movie. For now, Supergirl is rumored to appear in 2025’s Superman: Legacy.

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.

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.
