New DC Universe fan art imagines what Millie Bobby Brown could look like as the Girl of Steel in Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow. While a new Superman movie is in the works, Kal-El won’t be the only major Kryptonian to join Peter Safran and James Gunn’s upcoming DC Universe. Even though no release date has been set yet, Kara Zor-El is on her way too, as the iconic DC heroine is set to headline Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, one of the major Chapter 1, Gods and Monsters projects that are in the works.
While the Arrowverse featured Supergirl the most in recent years in live-action, Sasha Calle recently played her in The Flash movie, making it the first time since 1984 that Kara has been featured on the big screen. As Calle’s fate is unclear with the franchise at this point, Buffy2Ville recently shared new artwork where they pitched Brown as the beloved heroine for Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow.
To this point, Brown has yet to take part in any of the major comic book movie franchises, as she has been busy starring in Stranger Things, as well as the Enola Holmes franchise on Netflix. Ironicly enough, Brown has starred alongside a former Superman actor, since Henry Cavill plays Enola’s brother Sherlock Holmes in the series.

Everything We Know About DC Universe’s Supergirl Movie
The Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow movie will be based on Tom King’s comic book series of the same name, which was a six-issue limited-run from 2021-2022. King, who has become one of DC Comics’ most recognized authors in recent years, is working with DC Studios as an architect on the movie. It’s unclear if King is writing the script for Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow or if he is consulting while Gunn and Safran look for their director and screenwriter.
Ever since The Flash movie’s release, there has been speculation as to whether or not Calle will get to play the character again in Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow or if they are casting a new actress for the movie. Unless Gunn says otherwise, it is fair to assume that at this point, the DC Universe will have someone new play Supergirl to David Corenswet’s Superman. In contrast to Superman: Legacy, Superman: Woman of Tomorrow will focus on Kara’s tragic life experience as she lived “on a piece of Krypton that drifted off, and she was forced to see many loved ones die horribly.”
As the Writers Guild of America strike concluded in September, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow will at least be able to resume development on the script while the SAG-AFTRA strike is still active. Unless they already had an actor in mind to play Supergirl prior to the strikes, time will tell who gets to suit up as the infamous Kryptonian in the DC Universe. Hopefully, more updates on Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow will emerge sooner rather than later.
