DCU Casts House Of The Dragon’s Milly Alcock As Supergirl

While Kara Zor-El did exist in the DC Extended Universe, [actress] will obviously have a brand-new start in James Gunn’s DC Universe. Supergirl’s headlining film will be based on “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow,” a Tom King-penned comic book series featuring Kara trying to regain her mojo. Stuck on Earth — having been sent to protect Superman, only to discover that he’s grown to manhood without any need of assistance from home — she has no idea what her purpose is and what it is to be a superheroine who isn’t seen as some reflection of Clark Kent’s greatness. 

Of course, Supergirl has had a long and storied history in the pages of DC Comics going all the way back to 1959. While she may be most easily identified as Superman’s Krypton cousin, she has also had plenty of adventures of her own. During her run in the comics she joined the Justice League, nearly died of kryptonite poisoning, and defeated Cyborg Superman. There will be no shortage of material to draw from for the DCU’s own version of the character. 

Audience members will have to wait a while to see how [actress] fares and how well the character translates to the big screen. We’ll get a first-hand look when “Superman: Legacy” hits theaters in 2025.
