Why Milly Alcock’s Supergirl Casting Has DC Movie Fans Divided

It’s difficult to not understand the frustration that fans feel for Sasha Calle after her behemoth turn as Supergirl in “The Flash.” Calle was excited by the opportunity to represent Latinas around the world when she first got the gig. While speaking with Entertainment Weekly prior to the release of the speedster’s solo flick, Calle opened up about how playing Supergirl was a monumental moment for diversity. “People are like, ‘Well, we don’t really mean [Latinas]. Latinas aren’t on the big screen as superheroes, so why would you do that?’ It’s that idea of why representation matters,” Calle candidly said. 

Beyond getting the opportunity to play one of the most iconic characters in the DC roster, Calle was pleased with the idea of inspiring the next generation of performers. “But that’s my hope, that people who relate to me or see themselves in me can be like, ‘Yeah, we belong there as well. Those dreams are definitely achievable,'” she discussed. 

Unfortunately, “The Flash” cratered, emerging as a box office flop for DC. Despite the negative press surrounding the film, Calle was praised for her tortured performance as Kara. And things seemed positive for Calle’s future in the DC universe — she even met with DC bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran to discuss her next steps with the franchise. But like most superhero characters, it’s onto the next actor. While Calle may be out as Kara, Gunn is excited to see what Milly Alcock can do as Supergirl.
