SUPERGIRL: WOMAN OF TOMORROW: James Gunn Responds To Rumor DC Studios Is Looking For An Actor To Voice Krypto

Following reports that Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow is on the hunt for a voice actor to portray Krypto the Superdog, Superman director and DC Studios' boss James Gunn has chimed in. Read on for details...

Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow is currently scheduled to be the second DCU title released by DC Studios and it was recently confirmed that Cruella director Craig Gillespie will helm the movie.

Ana Nogueira (The Vampire Diaries) is writing the screenplay - she was also attached to the Supergirl movie starring The Flash's Sasha Calle - and House of the Dragon star Milly Alcock will play the titular hero. 

With Tom King's comic book of the same name set to be a key source of inspiration for the project, we're expecting Krypto to play a significant role in the movie. Don't forget, James Gunn is a big dog person and no doubt thrilled to bring that iconic pooch to the big screen!

Yesterday, a Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow casting call went out which seemed to suggest DC Studios is on the hunt for a voice actor to play Krypto. Needless to say, that raised concerns among fans that the powerful pet would be able to converse with the Maiden of Might. 

Thankfully, we can now confirm that's not the case. Gunn has also debunked a random rumour about Superman being set in 2021.

Supergirl is expected to make her DCU debut in next year's Superman reboot, though we're only expecting Alcock to make a cameo appearance. It's unclear how closely her movie will stick to the comic of the same name, though it does sound like a pretty faithful adaptation based on Gunn's past comments and we'd bet on Krypto showing up next summer as well. 

We'd imagine the canine hero will be brought to life in a similar way to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3's Cosmo, though it is a relief to know we'll hear barks in place of DC League of Super-Pets star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

When Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow was first announced, Gunn said, "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."

"She’s much more hardcore, she’s not exactly the Supergirl we’re used to seeing," he concluded.

Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow will be released in theaters on June 26, 2026.

I don't remember Krypto talking in Woman of Tomorrow. But he has talked before in other things.

@ObserverIO - I don't ever remember him talking...and, he's typically Superman's dog.

It's most likely set in 2027. It makes way more sense to set it two years in the future of it's release date than 4 years in the past.

It'd be cool if CBM could get an exclusive interview, and be the ones to break the news for once. I guess that impossible

Told ya.

Krypto doesn't talk ffs.

@Doomsday8888 - maybe not in the story they're basing this off but plenty of Canon comics have krypto speaking.

@Origame
I can't even remember the last time Krypton talked canonwise.

Could always pull some Golden/Silver age shit but why bother?

Origame - 6/23/2024, 11:07 AM
@Doomsday8888 - I mean, that's still Canon. And according to the explanation of the many reboots in doomsday clock, there's nothing in the reboots to suggest current krypto can't still talk.

@Origame
Well, current Krypto can't talk but there's a Krypto out there in the Multiverse or Hypertime that can talk.

Not exactly the same but i get it...still, i don't like it.

@Doomsday8888 - again, doomsday clock explained that all the reboots to the main universe was just Dr Manhattan changing details around to see what would happen, such as killing off pa Kent to see how superman grows up. So with that in mind, the main universe's krypto has the capability of speaking, even if he may not even realize it.

Dr.Manhattan just changed the DCU during Flashpoint, he wasn't the mastermind behind ALL the reboots.

Origame - 6/23/2024, 11:44 AM
@Doomsday8888 - ...yes he was. It was explained during doomsday clock he was responsible for all the reboots to the dc universe. Flashpoint was just the one his influence was actually noticed.

Dude, trust me on this, he wasn't.

I love that comic, read it countless times, shit..just read DC Rebirth One shot, he stole 10 years from the DCU when Barry was traveling back in time to fix Flashpoint.

@Doomsday8888 - dude, what does the one shot prove?

The pa Kent situation perfectly explains the situation. Pa Kent was alive in the original timeline, meaning Clark was superboy before superman. Manhattan kills pa Kent in a car accident, leading to a timeline where he was never superboy and only became a superhero as an adult as superman. This and the removal of the justice society from the timeline is a straight forward explanation of golden age to silver age, and pre to post crisis.

I wonder how many readers consumed Doomsday Clock like you, it's interesting, really, i'm not trying to mock or insult you.

I'm an avid comicbook reader, i followed the whole journey from pre-flashpoint DCU-Flashpoint-Superman Reborn-DC Rebirth-Doomsday Clock even that shitty ass Metal till now with Absolute Justice (yet to come out).

I'm not even trying to act smart, i merely want to admit how we are talking about DEEP DC Lore stuff right now.
Having read everything, it's clear to me that you probably skipped certain comics so that's why you're confusing certain things.

For example, the Pa Kent accident you're talking about ACTUALLY happened during the Action Comics run by Morrison and not in Doomsday Clock, seriously, if you read EVERYTHING the whole story, the whole journey it's actually fricking AMAZING, i have goosebumps even rn writing this post, lol.

That AC run happened during post-Flashpoint.

Also, surely you understand the moment Dr.Manhattan deleted the JSA from the equation happened during Flashpoint right? Cause we had a JSA in the pre-reboot but the JSA was missing after Flashpoint, they got shifted in Earth-2, which is not even the same version.

Clark was never Superboy in the New 52 because of Manhattan/Vyndktvx but yeah, AFTER Manhattan fixed his sin, he turned the clock back, the JSA existed, the LOSH existed, The Kents never died, Clark became Superboy befored becoming Superman but it is still a NEW reality from the pre-reboot, very similar i guess? But still quite different and tbh, even during pre-Flashpoint Krypto never spoke, you really gotta go way back.

Tell you what tho, IF he starts to speak here, rest assured these mf will find a way to make him bark AND talk in the comics as well because of some synergy bs.

@THEKENDOMAN - What's the deal with people bringing "race" into every conversation?

Can't we just focus on having a decent thread?

"What is the deal with White people and dogs"

WTF does this racist question even mean?

@THEKENDOMAN - Right?!? Don't get me started on white lesbians with Huskies in a SUV. I think it's a law.

@DocSpock - It's one of the stereotypes that black folks have for white folks - that whites love dogs more than their kids or that they treat them like their children which is supremely ironic for many reasons but also hilariously true from my experience.

I like dogs more than people 99.9% of the time, so they're not wrong.
