SUPERGIRL: WOMAN OF TOMORROW Now Casting For Ruthye Marye Knoll, Krypto, And More

With the lead role filled, DC Studios is now looking to cast the supporting players in Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, and it sounds like the movie is going to be a pretty faithful take on the comic...

With House of the Dragon's Millie Alcock set to play the title role, casting is now underway for the supporting characters in DC Studios' upcoming Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow movie.

According to Daniel Richtman, the project is currently searching for actors to play the villainous Krem of the Yellow hills, Male, 25 to 45; Kara Zor-El's ally Ruthye Marye Knoll, 13 to 16; and a voice actor for Krypto.

Woman of Tomorrow will be the second DCU movie to release in theaters after James Gunn's Superman. Warner Bros. recently announced that our new Girl of Steel will take flight on June 26, 2026.

Craig Gillespie is set to direct.

This take on Kara Zor-El a said to be a "less earnest and more edgy version of the iconic superheroine" as Gunn looks to move away from "previous depictions of the Girl of Steel, particularly the long-running CBS/CW series fronted by Melissa Benoist."

Gunn recently revealed that he actually had Alcock in mind to play Supergirl since seeing her performance in HBO's Game of Thrones prequel series.

“Milly was the FIRST person I brought up to Peter for this role, well over a year ago, when I had only read the comics," the filmmaker posted to Threads. "I was watching House of the Dragon and thought she might have the edge, grace and authenticity we needed.”

According to a brief synopsis, this story will follow Kara as she "travels across the galaxy to celebrate her 21st birthday with Krypto the Superdog. Along the way, she meets a young woman named Ruthye and winds up on a murderous quest for revenge."

It's worth noting that this is the premise of Tom King's Woman of Tomorrow comic, so the movie might well make a few changes - although the above casting call does suggest that they'll be stocking pretty close to the story.

Actress and playwright Ana Nogueira is currently working on the Woman of Tomorrow script.

Gunn and Peter Safran announced the Supergirl reboot during their studio press day in January of last year, when the "Gods and Monsters" DCU slate was revealed. The project will be at least partially based on King’s acclaimed comic book series of the same name from 2022.

Said Gunn at the time, “In our series 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.”

All signs are pointing towards that it'll be a literal adaptation of Tom King's story from the comics that will use most of the relevant characters he wrote there. It's even called after the source material from 2021.

Gunn sure is King's biggest fan and isn't afraid to hide it.

This Supergirl will kick apples but also have a sweet side as well.
Would love her to interpret the Batman and Superman: Apocalypse type character; from both the graphic novel and the animated feature.

Voice actor for Krypto?.

That’s weird , I hope they don’t make Krypto talk in this which I don’t think they will but you never know.

Anyway , Arian Greenblatt for Ruthye…

@Comicmoviejunki - Guardians 2 and moreso 3 is bent around a talking raccoon's drama and I took that seriously for the most part.

@Comicmoviejunki - even if you didn’t read the comic this movie is going to be based of, you can Google “Supergirl Woman of Tomorrow” and find out that Krypto IS IN this story. If you dont like the fact that the comic book character is in the comic that the movie is based of, just dont watch it 🤷🏽
