‘House of the Dragon’ star Milly Alcock lands ‘Supergirl’ role; James Gunn says ‘She embodies Kara’ | English Movie News – Times of India

After taking flight on a Dragon as young Rhaenyra Targaryen, ‘House of the Dragon‘ breakout star Milly Alcock is now set to don the cape as Supergirl in the upcoming DC Universe film.
The 23-year-old Australian actress is set to portray Kara Zor-El in the much-anticipated movie titled ‘Superman: Legacy’. Director James Gunn made the official announcement on his Instagram handle on Tuesday morning with a post that read, “This is accurate.Milly is a fantastically talented young actor, and I’m incredibly excited about her being a part of the DCU.”
Going on to praise the young talent, he said, “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 Tom King, Bilquis Evely and Ana Nogueira.Sharing the director’s post on her Instagram stories, Milly wrote, “Ahhh Thank You.”
The announcement comes just a month ahead of the scheduled commencement of the film’s production in March.
Alcock joins the cast of David Corenswet as Clark Kent aka Superman and Rachel Brosnahan as Lois Lane. It was previously reported that the cast will also include Nicholas Hoult as Lex Luthor, Nathan Fillion as Guy Gardner/Green Lantern, Anthony Carrigan as Metamorpho, Isabela Merced as Hawkgirl.

Following her appearance in ‘Superman: Legacy’, Milly is slated to headline her standalone movie, titled ‘Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow’.
According Gunn, the new Supergirl will be ‘very different’. The film is set to explore the difference between Superman, who was raised by loving parents on Earth, in contrast to Supergirl, who was raised on a rock chip-off of Krypton and watched everyone around her die. “She’s not exactly the Supergirl we’re used to seeing,” the director said, hinting at a much darker undertone for the upcoming film that is expected to take a detour from the usual origins stories.

While Milly gained widespread recognition for her role in ‘HOTD’, as her character Rhaenyra underwent an age transformation, she is not expected to return for the upcoming second season.
