Recent Supergirl Casting Already Making News

Thursday | 02/01/2024  by Lars Hindsley — Self-proclaimed Superman nut and film producer Matthew Vaughn has weighed in on Gunn’s announcement of casting Milly Alcock as Supergirl. “I’m a huge fan of Milly Alcock. Huge fan. — Met with her for this other project we’re working on — she turned me down, which was sad. She’s a fabulous actress. Then again, I do find it very weird that they haven’t got a director. That surprised me, because you shouldn’t cast a movie — the director should be casting the movie. I don’t understand who cast it if there isn’t a director.”  – Source Variety

Tuesday 01/30/2024  by Lars Hindsley — If it seems unusual for Supergirl to be cast with Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow set for release well after Superman: Legacy, the answer is she’s set to appear in Superman: Legacy. Word is Milly Alcock may have come out on top in recent screen testing for the role of Superman’s cousin. Hollywood Reporter is stating they confirmed the coveted role of Kara Zor-El now belongs to Game of Thrones star, Milly Alcock after screen testing against the likes of Meg Donnelly.  It’s not entirely clear if the studio heads James Gunn and Peter Safran made the final judgement. What’s certain is Gunn confirms the casting. 

“This is accurate. Milly is a fantastically talented young actor, and I’m incredibly excited about her being a part of the DCU. Yes, I first became aware of her in House of the Dragon but I was blown away by her varied auditions and screen tests for #Supergirl. She embodies Kara as envisioned by @tomking_tk, @bilquis and Ana Nogueira.” ―James Gunn Source: X

Despite her immense power, her lack of experience and self-restraint makes her potentially more dangerous than her cousin, Superman. However, her efforts to control her powers and her numerous acts of heroism have earned her a respected place among Earth’s heroes, proving her worth and gaining the trust of her new home.
