Milly Alcock, known for her role in “House of the Dragon,” was the “first person” James Gunn brought up for the DC role in “Supergirl.”

DC co-boss James Gunn took to social media to share his enthusiasm following the recent Supergirl casting announcement. Milly Alcock, known for her role in “House of the Dragon,” secured the coveted role, marking a significant development in the DC cinematic universe.
