The last 4 superhero movies from Gunn have impeccable casting. Imma trust him on this even if I would've preferred the alternative
Not exciting casting news, but it could be good. Just have to wait and see.
Just like when all roles are cast, I'll just have to wait and give them the benefit of the doubt and see how they do. I think that we all have our "fantasy casting" for a lot of these roles, but what can you do?
Milly Alcock has been chosen for the prestigious role of Supergirl in the upcoming DC Universe project by James Gunn and Peter Safran. Alcock portrayed the character of young Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen in the first season of HBO's Game of Thrones spinoff, House of the Dragon.
Alcock emerged victorious in the competition against Emilia Jones, known for her role in CODA, and Meg Donnelly, who lent her voice to Supergirl in DC animated films like Legion of Superheroes and Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths Part One.
Neither are exciting choices. But I'd prefer Meg Donnelly.
Screen tests for the Supergirl role were held yesterday, narrowing down the field to two actresses, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter. Multiple sources have confirmed that the field has now been narrowed down to Milly Alcock, renowned for her portrayal of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen in HBO's Game of Thrones spinoff House of the Dragon, and Meg Donnelly, known for her role in Disney Channel's popular musical franchise Zombies and her voice work in recent DC animated movies. Both underwent testing in Atlanta with DC Studios executives James Gunn and Peter Safran present during the auditions.
Meg Donnelly would get my vote, too, but I can't say I'd mind if the role went to Emilia Jones, though. She was outstanding in Coda.
Milly Alcock is great and all... but I really like how much of a Supergirl Meg Donnelly already looks!!! If we were to get one of those three she'd be my pick (looks alone don't guarantee anything... but if she's already the voice actress she may be familiar with it enough to pull it off marvelously!)
oh!I vote Meg Donelly!
She is already the animated voice!
Insider sources have told Deadline that DC Studios is gearing up to hold auditions for the role of Supergirl. The talented actresses Milly Alcock, Emilia Jones, and Meg Donnelly are reportedly in the running. While there's a chance the studio might directly offer the role to a big-name star, it seems more likely that screen tests will take place next month.
James Gunn, the co-boss at DC Studios, is involved in the selection process. Additionally, Supergirl is expected to make a cameo appearance in another DC project before her standalone film. The search for a director is still ongoing.
Gunn, along with co-DC chief Peter Safran, revealed the Supergirl movie, titled Supergirl, Woman of Tomorrow, at DC's studio press day over a year ago. This film is adapted from Tom King's comic book series released in 2022.
In our series we see the difference between Superman who was sent to Earth and raised by loving parents from the time he was an infant, versus Supergirl who was raised on a rock, a chip off Krypton, and watched everyone around her die and be killed in terrible ways for the first 14 years of her life, and then came to Earth when she was a young girl. Shes much more hardcore; shes not exactly the Supergirl were used to seeing.
