The next movie in the new DC film universe has received a promising update. During Warner Bros. Discovery’s 2023 fourth quarter earnings call, Warner Bros. CEO David Zaslav stated that Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow is entering the preproduction phase.

Milly Alcock (House of the Dragons) was announced as the new Supergirl/Kara Zor-El in January 2024. Now, Zaslav stated that they will start casting the rest of the movie’s key roles. He also shared that the script by Ann Nogueira (The Vampire Diaries) is completed. The movie does not currently have a director.

Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow is based on Tom King and Bilquis Evely’s comic of the same name. It will explore Kara Zor-El’s life on Krypton and the tragedies she witnessed, presenting a harsher, more complicated version of the superheroine. King is involved in the movie as an architect, though it has not been announced if that means he helped write the script or is producing.

The movie is part of the new DC film and TV universe, headed by DC Studios Co-Chairmen and CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran. Titled, “Chapter One: Gods and Monsters,” it will include the movies Superman: Legacy, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, The Brave and the Bold, The Authority, and Swamp Thing. The TV shows will include Waller, Lanterns, Paradise Lost, Booster Gold, and Creature Commandos.
