- Digital artist Rangs Art creates stunning fanart of Meg Donnelly as Supergirl, fueling reports of Donnelly being a contender to play the character.
- Donnelly and House of the Dragon actress Milly Alcock are reportedly the top choices for the Supergirl role, but fans seem to prefer Donnelly.
- James Gunn and Peter Safran have big plans for Supergirl, and fans eagerly await the official announcement of who will portray the character.
Meg Donnelly could be the next Supergirl, and one fan approved of it by creating an image that depicts the actress as the Woman of Tomorrow in James Gunn’s DCU.
Gunn previously announced that he would produce a new Supergirl film, and the new actor who will portray the female superhero will reportedly debut in Superman: Legacy before starring in her own film Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow. Fans have been clamoring to know who will play the titular superhero, and there are reports that Donnelly could land the role.
X-Men Fan Theory Gives ‘Horrific’ Reason Why Mutants Are Missing In The MCU
An X-Men MCU reboot theory suggests mutants have always been in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and are missing because of Professor X.
Digital artist Rangs Art seemingly supports the rumors of Donnelly being the next Supergirl. The netizen took to Instagram and shared artwork featuring the Zombies actress as Supergirl. She looked stunning in the superhero costume. One netizen seemingly agreed, commenting, “Cool.” Artist ChariotRacing also created their own rendition of Donnelly as Supergirl.
The fanart was released a day after reports claimed that Donnelly had a screen test for the role in Atlanta. Several unnamed sources told The Hollywood Reporter that the bosses had narrowed their choices to two actresses for the role — Donnelly and House of the Dragon actress Milly Alcock. Alcock played young Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen in the Game of Thrones prequel series. Meanwhile, Donnelly starred in Disney Channel’s Zombies as Addison and voiced Supergirl in recent DC animated movies. Netizens were overjoyed upon hearing that Donnelly and Alcock could be the next Supergirl. However, it appeared that Donnelly was the preferred choice for Supergirl because she was featured in more posts.
Supergirl is one of the superhero characters that fans have been waiting for. She was last seen on screen in The Flash with Sasha Calle portraying the character. However, fans learned more about the character in CBS’ and The CW’s live-action Supergirl series starring Melissa Benoist playing the titular character. Before the recent report following the screen test, several names came up as potential actors for the role, including Calle, Beniost, Kiernan Shipka, Madison Iseman, Samara Weaving, and Anya Taylor-Joy.
It’s unclear if Calle did the screen test, but many also hoped she would return as Kara due to her minimal impact in the Snyderverse. Her fans want to see more of her in the superhero costume. However, with the newest report suggesting the role could end up between Donnelly and Alcock, fans were seemingly down to two hopefuls. Donnelly may have a better chance, as she has incredible charisma, and her appearance is arguably better suited to the superhero character. Many would agree, as several had shared the same sentiment online — that Donnelly would be an accurate pick and wise choice if they recast Supergirl after Calle. However, Alcock’s fans will surely disagree because they want her for the role. No matter who between the two Gunn and Safran choose, there is no doubt that they will give justice to the character. Also, nothing is set in stone until an official announcement is made.
Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow is in development at DC Studios.
