Almost a year after DC Studios co-head James Gunn revealed as part of the first phase of the new direction of the DC Universe, dubbed “Gods and Monsters,” according to Deadline Australian actress Milly Alcock, best known for her role as young Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen in the first season of HBO’s Game of Thrones spinoff House of the Dragon. has been cast as the Man of Steel’s cousin Supergirl.

As previously announced, a solo Supergirl live-action movie based on the Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow comic miniseries from writer Tom King and artist Bilquis Evely was included in the slate of upcoming projects from DC Studios. 

As Gunn previously stated:

In our story, we have Superman who was sent to Earth and raised by incredibly loving parents. Kara was on Krypton. She was on a piece of Krypton that drifted away from the planet and she lived there for the first fourteen years of her life in a horrible situation where she watched everyone around her die. So, she’s a much harsher and more f*cked up Supergirl than you’ve been used to thus far.

Milly AlcockThough his New Gods film with Ava DuVernay never came to be, King is involved not just in this Supergirl project but the new DC Universe films as a whole. Other key architects in the DC Studios include Chantal Nong, Jeremy Slater, Christina Hodson, Drew Goddard, Christal Henry, and Galen Vaisman.

It was only a few years ago when Sasha Calle was cast as Supergirl in The Flash film, making her first Latinx Supergirl ever in DC media. Unfortunately due to the film’s less than stellar box office performance and reception, it seems a safe bet that Calle won’t be returning to the role anytime.
