James Gunn will reportedly choose the DCU’s Supergirl from two stars, and it will be a tough choice

The race for the DC Universe’s (DCU) Supergirl role is almost over – and there are only a few contenders left in the field, if a new report is to be believed.

According to The Hollywood Reporter (THR), new DC co-heads James Gunn and Peter Safran have narrowed their list of potential collaborators to two finalists. The duo in question? House of the Dragon alumnus Milly Alcock and DC movie voice actor Meg Donnelly.

THR’s sources claim that the pair participated in screen tests for Kryptonian, which will debut in 2025. Superman: Legacy before starring in her own DCU movie on January 23. Gunn and Safran were, perhaps unsurprisingly, present for the final round of auditions, suggesting studio executives are preparing to install Alcock or Donnelly as Kara Zor-El.

The likely recruitment of Alcock or Donnelly is just speculation for now, but there is a potential bit of truth in one of them landing the role. As of this writing, Gunn — who regularly takes to Threads to shoot down bizarre DCU rumors — has not commented on THR’s latest report. So it’s becoming increasingly likely that Alcock and Donnelly are the only actors vying for the position.
