Supergirl Casting Finalist Reportedly Refused To Read For DC Universe Role

Wait, what?

Supergirl Woman of Tomorrow DC Comics

James Gunn has officially brought on Milly Alcock to play Supergirl in Superman: Legacy. However, a new report suggests one actress originally up for the role refused to read for the part.

Last week, reports came out that Milly Alcock and Meg Donnelly were the finalists to play Supergirl in James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DC Universe, with the House of the Dragon actress getting the role in the end. However, it seems some of the other candidates Gunn had lined up for the role were less than cooperative, with Hollywood insider Jeff Sneider revealing on The Hot Mic that Coda actress Emilia Jones refused to read for the DC Universe character.

It’s unclear exactly why Emilia Jones refused to read for the part if the rumor is true. While any actress would certainly get a boost in their career by appearing in Superman: Legacy, it’s likely James Gunn has strong commitments for Supergirl in the DC Universe, with a solo movie for the character already in production. Though with Milly Alcock already committed to the role, here’s to hoping she can handle the pressure!

Who Is Supergirl: 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.
