The race for who will play the new big screen Supergirl is narrowing with THR reporting that screen tests for the role took place this week in Atlanta, Georgia.
The trade indicates the choice has now been narrowed down to two actresses. On the one hand there’s Milly Alcock, best known for her work as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen in the “Game of Thrones” spin-off “House of the Dragon”.
On the other there’s Meg Donnelly, star of The CW’s “The Winchesters” and Disney Channel’s musical franchise “Zombies”. Donnelly also already voices Supergirl in recent and current DC animated movies.
Both have stuck around whereas “Priscilla” star Cailee Spaeny and “CODA” actress Emilia Jones have dropped off.
DC Studios bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran were reportedly present at the screen tests for the role which is expected to make a brief appearance in Gunn’s “Superman: Legacy” ahead of the character getting her own film “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow”.
That solo film is expected to be heavily adapted from Tom King’s recent acclaimed miniseries of the same name. Ana Nogueira is writing the script for what’s being dubbed a sci-fi epic, and no director is yet set.
