Milly Alcock’s Debut as Supergirl in ‘Superman’

Before headlining her own film, Milly Alcock will make her debut as Supergirl in the ‘Superman’ movie. This strategic introduction of Kara Zor-El, Superman’s Kryptonian cousin, sets the stage for her standalone adventure. Alcock, who garnered attention with her stellar performance in HBO’s ‘House of the Dragon,’ was cast as Supergirl in January, after catching the eye of DC co-chief James Gunn. Her screen test, featuring her in the iconic Supergirl costume, sealed the deal.

The last time Warner Bros. released a ‘Supergirl’ film was in 1984, directed by Jeannot Szwarc, with Helen Slater in the titular role and Faye Dunaway as the villain. Filming for the new ‘Supergirl’ is slated to begin this autumn, adding to the excitement surrounding the project.
