Yesterday it was confirmed that Milly Alcock, best known for playing Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” has been cast to play Supergirl in “Superman: Legacy” and “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow”.

Milly Alcock has responded to the Supergirl casting announcement posting the following statement on her Instagram account.

“So excited to be a part of the DC fam – thank you so much to James Gunn for trusting me with Kara/Supergirl.”

James Gunn responded saying, “Thank you for blessing us with your talent!”

Supergirl is reported to first appear in “Superman: Legacy” before starring in the upcoming film “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow”.

The script for “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow” is written by Ana Nogueira, which is inspired by the Tom King run of comics of the same name. Back in January 2023, James Gunn said in a video announcement, “Superman is a guy sent to Earth and raised by loving parents, where Supergirl in this story, she is a character raised on a chunk of Krypton. She watched everybody around her perish in some terrible way, so she’s a much more jaded character.”

While no release date for “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow” has been announced as yet, we will see Supergirl in “Superman: Legacy” when it is released on July 11, 2025.
