New details have emerged on the casting of the Supergirl role in James Gunn and Peter Safran’s new DC universe following yesterday’s announcement of Milly Alcock landing the part.

According to Variety, Gunn and Safran flew multiple actors to Atlanta for “old-fashioned, onscreen auditions” on the set of the new “Superman: Legacy” film which is readying for production in March.

The actors reportedly donned the Supergirl suit and boots for the auditions. Alcock and Meg Donnelly were said to be in a close contest for the role with Donnelly thought to have the advantage going in thanks to voicing Supergirl in animated features.

However that may have worked against her as the trade says Gunn is trying to move away from the previous earnest girl scout depictions of the character such as on The CW seried – rather offering a “more edgy version” of the character.

The new iteration sees Supergirl traveling across the galaxy to celebrate her 21st birthday with Krypto the Superdog. Along the way, she meets a young woman named Ruthye and winds up on a murderous quest for revenge.

Gunn has previously said Alcock was the first person he suggested for the role after watching her in “House of the Dragon”.

Ana Nogueira (“The Vampire Diaries”) is writing the screenplay for the “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow” film with a director expected to be set in the coming weeks.
