James Gunn is reportedly set to pick the DCU’s Supergirl from two stars, and it’ll be a tough choice

The race for the DC Universe’s (DCU) Supergirl role has almost been run – and there are only a couple of contenders left on 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 whittled down their list of potential hires 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 took part in screen tests for the Kryptonian, who is set to debut in 2025’s Superman: Legacy before starring in her own DCU film, on January 23. Gunn and Safran were, perhaps unsurprisingly, present for the latest round of auditions, which suggests the studio executives are gearing up to install Alcock or Donnelly as Kara Zor-El.

Alcock or Donnelly’s likely hiring is just speculation for now, but there is a potential shred of truth to one of them landing the role. At the time of writing, Gunn – who is regularly taking to Threads to shoot down outlandish DCU rumors – hasn’t commented on THR’s latest report. It’s increasingly plausible, then, that Alcock and Donnelly are the only actors competing for the position.
