Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow Eyeing Dumb Money Director

The upcoming DC Studios movie Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow may have found its director, and it’s someone who’s helmed female-led films before.

Deadline has reported that Craig Gillespie is in talks to direct the Milly Alcock-led superhero movie. Previously, Gillespie has directed movies like Lars and the Real Girl and 2011’s Fright Night, and more recently, 2017’s I, Tonya and the live-action Disney movie Cruella.

Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow will be based on Tom King’s 2021-2022 comic book series, which was illustrated by Bilquis Evely. It will be led by House of the Dragon star Milly Alcock, who will play the titular role of Kara Zor-El, and will be written by Ana Nogueira and produced by DC Studios co-CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran.

What will Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow be about?

“We see the difference between Superman, who was sent to Earth and raised by loving parents from the time he was an infant, versus Supergirl, who was raised on a rock, a chip off Krypton and watched everyone around her die and be killed in terrible ways for the first 14 years of her life, and then came to Earth when she was a young girl,” said Gunn of the project. “She’s much more hardcore; she’s not exactly the Supergirl we’re used to seeing.”
