From Rhaenyra to Kara Zor-El: Milly Alcock’s Superhero Leap in DC’s Latest ‘Supergirl’ Casting


Milly Alcock, celebrated for her role in “House of the Dragon,” has been cast as Supergirl in the upcoming “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow.” This news heralds a fresh era for DC, initiated by the visionary filmmaker James Gunn. Alcock’s selection underscores a strategic pivot in DC’s casting approach, emphasizing depth and authenticity.

Gunn, who has been vocal about rebooting the DC Universe with renewed vigor, saw in Alcock a unique blend of edge, grace, and authenticity essential for the role of Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin. His choice was deeply influenced by her performance in “House of the Dragon,” where she portrayed a young Rhaenyra Targaryen with notable finesse. Gunn’s decision reflects a keen insight into the dynamics of character portrayal and a bold move to infuse new life into the DC narrative.

Alcock’s transition from the fantasy realm of dragons to the superhero genre marks an interesting pivot in her career. Her portrayal of Supergirl is expected to bring a fresh perspective to the character, blending Alcock’s innate ability to convey complex emotions with the iconic superhero’s traits. This casting decision may well be a cornerstone in the much-anticipated reboot of the DC Universe, setting a precedent for future portrayals of beloved comic book characters.
