Writer Ana Nogueira Hired To Write DC Movie 'Supergirl: Woman Of Tomorrow'

Ana Nogueira, an actress and playwright who is venturing into screenwriting, has been chosen to write the script for Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, a standalone film centered around the Kryptonian cousin of Superman. This project is currently being developed by DC Studios, although no director has been attached yet. Nogueira's deal for this film was recently finalized.

This is not Nogueira's first involvement with a Supergirl project. In 2022, she was quietly hired by Warner Bros. to write a Supergirl movie that was intended to be a spinoff of The Flash, which was in the post-production phase at that time. The Flash movie featured Sasha Calle as the heroine, and the goal was to launch a new DC film franchise.

However, these plans were seemingly abandoned when Gunn and Safran took over the reins of the reorganized DC arm. The project Nogueira was working on was discarded as the new executives focused on creating a fresh slate of films, separate from the vision of former DC Films boss Walter Hamada. Earlier this year, it was revealed that Supergirl would still be part of this new slate, but with no connection to The Flash movie. Instead, the film would draw inspiration from a comic book mini-series written by Tom King, published in 2021 and 2022, which aimed to redefine the character and present her as more than just a female version of Superman.

James Gunn has officially announced that Ana Nogueira has been chosen as the writer for the highly anticipated Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow film. Taking to social media, the co-head of DC Studios expressed his excitement and praised Nogueira for her incredible work on the adaptation.

Quote

"A hearty public welcome to Ana Nogueira to the DC Studios family. Ana is an amazing writer whose screenplay adaptation of Woman of Tomorrow is above and beyond anything I hoped it would be. We’re excited to be moving forward on this unique take on Supergirl in this beautiful, star-spanning tale."

Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow is a standalone movie centered around Kara Zor-El, the cousin of Superman. This film is part of the ongoing DC Universe project led by Gunn and Peter Safran. Gunn has already been confirmed as the writer and director for Superman: Legacy, which is set to star David Corenswet and Rachel Brosnahan and is scheduled for release on July 11, 2025.

In the recent film, The Flash, Sasha Calle portrayed Supergirl. Initially, there were hopes for Calle to have a more significant role within the DC Universe. However, her casting took place before Gunn and Safran took charge of the comic book films, under the previous administration of DC Studios.

Which they'll promptly refuse to release once it's completed for a tax writeoff. 

Possible, but Zaslav seems to be finally learning a lesson about that: filmmakers won't want to make films for your company if there's a distinct possibility that their films won't get released.

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.

Quote

“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. She’s much more hardcore; she’s not exactly the Supergirl we’re used to seeing.”

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!)

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.

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?
