James Gunn Denies Krypto Casting Rumor for 'Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow'

The new DCU producer has set the record straight on the buzzing report surrounding the upcoming 'Supergirl' remake which is set to be fronted by Milly Alcock.

AceShowbiz - Slated for a grand release on June 26, 2026, "Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow" stands poised as the second DCU title set to be unveiled by DC Studios. Directed by Craig Gillespie of "Cruella" fame, and featuring a screenplay by Ana Nogueira from "The Vampire Diaries", this venture is already creating a substantial buzz among superhero aficionados.

A pivotal attraction of the movie will undoubtedly be Milly Alcock, who is set to don the cape of Supergirl. Alcock, celebrated for her role in "House of the Dragon", will breathe life into a version of Supergirl that deviates starkly from the familiar sunny archetype.

As James Gunn remarked, "She's much more hardcore, she's not exactly the Supergirl we're used to seeing." This Supergirl has endured a harrowing upbringing, marked by isolation on a fragment of Krypton and the loss of everyone close to her before reaching Earth.

The narrative draws heavily from Tom King's comic book of the same name, suggesting a compelling and layered storyline. It's expected that Krypto, Supergirl's loyal canine companion, will play a significant role in the film. Gunn, known for his affinity for dogs, has been instrumental in ensuring Krypto's presence.

A recent casting call for a voice actor for Krypto raised questions about whether the dog would communicate verbally with Supergirl. However, fans can rest assured that Krypto will retain his barks, void of any human-like dialogue, as James Gunn wrote on Thread, "There is no casting for the voice of Krypto."

Interestingly, Supergirl is anticipated to make a cameo in next year's much-awaited "Superman" reboot although Alcock's role will likely be brief. This appearance is likely to lay the groundwork for the deeper exploration of her character in her standalone movie. Gunn has already shut down speculations about Superman being set in 2021, maintaining the film's continuity with the larger DCU timeline.

Moreover, Gunn's vision for "Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow" as expressed during its announcement, highlights a stark contrast between Superman's nurturing upbringing on Earth and Supergirl's grim formative years. This juxtaposition promises a fresh perspective within the DCU, setting the stage for a narrative that is both gritty and emotionally resonant.

As the clock ticks down to its release, anticipation builds for what could be one of the most innovative and emotionally charged entries in the DC cinematic universe. Come June 2026, fans eagerly await Supergirl's fiery ascent to cinematic glory, bringing along with her a story of survival, resilience, and unrelenting strength.
