The House of the Dragon star Milly Alcock is all set to bring the supernatural magic to the screens in Supergirl’: New Woman Of Steel.
As reported by Deadline, Milly, who played the young Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen in the first season of HBO’s Game of Thrones spinoff House of the Dragon, has landed a role for herself in James Gunn and Peter Safran's DC universe.
The Australian actress is represented CAA, Shanahan Management, Entertainment 360 and Curtis Brown.
Reports also suggest that the new Supergirl will star in James Gunn's upcoming directorial, Superman Legacy, first before taking on the lead in solo feature, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow.
However, as of now no director has been announced for Supergirl, despite the project being announced by the studio last year during a press conference.
Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow will be based on Tom King’s 2022 comic book series, which was illustrated by Bilquis Evely.
Soon after Milly made the headlines with this new update, the Co-CEO of the DC universe also turned to Instagram to confirm the reports.
"This is accurate. Milly is a fantastically talented young actor, and I’m incredibly excited about her being a part of the DCU," wrote Gunn alongside the screenshot of Deadline's article and comic book.
He continued, "Yes, I first became aware of her in House of the Dragon but I was blown away by her varied auditions and screen tests for #Supergirl. She embodies Kara as envisioned by @tomking_tk, @bilquis and Ana Nogueira."
Last year, when the project was first announced, Gunn revealed, “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.”
To note, Milly garnered the role after outshining CODA actress Emilia Jones, and Meg Donnelly, who voiced Supergirl in DC animated movies, Legion of Superheroes and Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths Part One.
