The New DC Universe Found Its Supergirl: Milly Alcock

With The Flash exiting 2023 as a box-office bomb, new DC Studios heads James Gunn and Peter Safran are racing to change the narrative from Please see our controversial movie! to Please spend every waking minute thinking about our Superman film!

The plan seems to be working. After fans rampantly speculated the identity of the next Superman for weeks, the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 director finally revealed that David Corenswet (We Own This City) will be our new Man of Steel. According to Deadline, Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) has also joined Superman: Legacy as Lois Lane. As for Lex Luthor? The role of one of Superman's greatest foes eventually went to Nicholas Hoult.

Now, Gunn's DC universe has its Supergirl. Milly Alcock (House of the Dragon) was added to the billing as Kal-El's fellow Kryptonian, Kara Zor-El. She'll likely show up in Superman: Legacy or another new DC project, according to Deadline, before starring in her own film, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow. The latest Superman film will also feature Isabela Merced (The Last of Us),as Hawkgirl, Nathan Fillion (The Rookie) as Guy Gardner/Green Lantern, Skyler Gosando (The Righteous Gemstones) as Jimmy Olsen, Anthony Carrigan (Barry) as Metamorpho, Sean Gunn as Matthew Lord, and Edi Gathegi (The Harder They Fall) as Mister Terrific.

Superman: Legacy won't hit theaters until July 11, 2025. So, now that we have our cast, can you all stop driving Gunn insane on Twitter?
