Supergirl actress Milly Alcock is the latest to join James Gunn’s DC Universe, and a name familiar with the role has congratulated the young star for entering the elite list of actors who have played the comic-book character.
A few days ago, Gunn announced Alcock will portray the titular heroine in the upcoming movie Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow. The character has a long history in the comic-book world and has been depicted in movies and TV shows. Alcock has received congratulatory messages from everywhere about her casting.

Supergirl DCU Fan Art Shows Why House Of The Dragon’s Milly Alcock Would Be A Great Kara Zor-El
Supergirl DCU fan art shows what House of the Dragon actress Milly Alcock would look like as Kara Zor-El in James Gunn’s DC Universe.
While taking it to Instagram, Slater congratulated the House of the Dragon star for becoming the next Supergirl. She shared a collage of actors who have played Kara Zor-El over the years and motivated Alcock by saying she would do an “amazing” job as the iconic comic-book character. Slater captioned the photo, “Congratulations to the luminous Milly Alcock, the next Supergirl! The DC universe awaits you! You will be AMAZING!!” Apart from Slater and Alcock, the collage included photos of Laura Vandervoort, Melissa Benoist, and Sasha Calle in their Supergirl costumes. In 2023, Slaters’ Supergirl returned for a cameo in The Flash movie’s multiverse scene alongside Christopher Reeve’s Superman. However, this was achieved using Deepfake and AI technology.
Initially, when Alcock was chosen to portray Kara, reports suggested that Supergirl would debut in Gunn’s DC Universe through the movie Superman: Legacy. However, Gunn indicated Alcock’s Supergirl won’t be in Superman: Legacy, though he was possibly being coy. Although Gunn has been quite vocal about how things would work in the DCU, it won’t be surprising if Alcock appears in Superman: Legacy. This would be an extraordinary surprise for the fandom and movie-goers.
Penned by Ana Nogueira, Superman: Woman of Tomorrow is an adaptation of the eponymous comic book series. In that series, Supergirl has been responsible for rescuing Earth several times and has teamed up with many heroes from the DC Universe. However, she is constantly overshadowed by Superman’s fame and reaches a breaking point. Things go haywire when an alien girl approaches her on a deadly mission. The girl’s world has been destroyed, and the culprits are still roaming freely. The Girl of Steel gets angry and decides to help the little girl by taking revenge. But the little girl makes one thing clear: the moment Supergirl says no to her mission, she takes the matter into her own hands.
It would be interesting to see how Alcock portrays the character and how unique she makes it through her impeccable acting skills. Without any doubt, fans are excited to see her donning the legendary costume, and they are also happy to see the OG Supergirl welcoming the actor into the DC Universe.
Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow is in development at DC Studios.
