Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow: Everything We Know So Far


‘Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow’ is set to bring Kara Zor-El to the big screen in an exciting new adventure. James Gunn’s new DC Universe will kick off with Superman, but Kara is also getting her moment to shine. The release of Superman in July 2025 will introduce us to Kara, who will then star in her own solo film. This movie aims to showcase Supergirl as more than just Superman’s cousin, highlighting her unique and angsty personality.

Plot and Main Characters

The story of ‘Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow’ follows Kara Zor-El, who has always been more than just Superman’s cousin. Unlike Clark Kent, Kara has a much edgier and angsty personality, shaped by her difficult experiences.

Kara was sent to Earth to protect Clark, but she arrived to find he didn’t need her. This realization, combined with the world viewing her through the lens of Superman’s fame, left her struggling with a lack of purpose and anger.

An alien girl whose world was destroyed seeks Kara out for help. Together, they embark on a mission of revenge against those responsible, showcasing Kara’s bravery and toughness.

Cast and Characters

Milly Alcock is confirmed to play Kara Zor-El/Supergirl in ‘Woman of Tomorrow’. She secured the role due to her standout performance in ‘House of the Dragon’.

  • Milly Alcock as Kara Zor-El/Supergirl: Chosen for her edge, grace, and authenticity.
  • Sasha Calle: Previously played Supergirl but won’t return in this film.
  • David Corenswet: Expected to make a cameo as Superman.

James Gunn praised Alcock for bringing the needed qualities to the role. The rest of the cast is still being assembled, with more announcements expected as production progresses.

Production and Release Date

‘Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow’ is set to begin filming in late 2024. Heavy CGI will be used, so the production process will take some time.

The movie is expected to release around early 2026. No director is attached yet, but the project is moving forward with a script by Ana Nogueira, praised by James Gunn for her adaptation of the story.

Expectations and Story Adaptation

The movie is based on the Tom King comic mini-series ‘Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow’. This story dives deep into Kara’s struggle with a lack of purpose and her dynamic personality.

Kara’s journey in the film will contrast Clark’s, showing her harsher and more jaded side. Gunn highlighted how Kara watched everyone around her die on Krypton, making her a much tougher character.

The film promises to bring a refreshing take on Supergirl, exploring her character in depth and showing why she’s more than just a female version of Superman. This adaptation aims to capture her complexity and strength.
