DC’s New ‘Supergirl’ Is ‘House of the Dragon’ Star Milly Alcock

Milly Alcock, the talented actress recognized for her portrayal of young Rhaenyra Targaryen in “House of the Dragon,” is set to take on the iconic role of the Woman of Steel in the upcoming DC Universe film, “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow.” The movie, inspired by the DC comics run by Tom King and Bilquis Evely, is currently without a director, but the screenplay is in the capable hands of Ana Nogueira, who was brought on board in November.

James Gunn, a key figure in the new DC Universe alongside Peter Safran, excitedly confirmed Milly Alcock’s casting through his Instagram. While the exact debut date of Alcock’s superhero character remains shrouded in mystery, there’s speculation that she might initially cross paths with Superman in Gunn’s “Superman: Legacy” before embarking on her standalone adventure.

Hailing from Australia, Alcock commenced her acting journey on Australian television, gaining widespread recognition for her role as the ambitious Targaryen princess in the initial episodes of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” prequel. After a decade-long time jump, the baton was passed to Emma D’Arcy.

Alcock now joins the ranks of other talented actresses who have brought Supergirl to life, following in the footsteps of Melissa Benoist in the TV series “Supergirl” and Sasha Calle in the 2023 film “The Flash.” Gunn emphasizes the desire for a fresh start for the new DC Universe.

The 2022 comic book run of “Woman of Tomorrow” takes a unique approach to Kara Zor-El’s backstory, depicting her witnessing Krypton’s destruction until the age of 14, offering a more intense and gritty perspective on the character. Gunn, during the unveiling of the new DC Universe slate in 2023, highlighted this departure from the traditional Supergirl narrative.
