DC Studio Co-CEO James Gunn unveiled the revelation that Alcock is set to appear as Superman’s cousin Kara Zor-El in the latest series through an Instagram post on Monday.

"This is accurate. Milly is a fantastically talented younger actor, and I’m incredibly excited about her being a part of the DCU," confirming the swirling reports he penned.

Gunn, who is writing and directing Superman: Legacy, set to release in 2025, shared, "Yes, I first became aware of her in House of the Dragon but I was blown away by her varied auditions and screen tests for #Supergirl."

He wrapped up the announcement post by adding, "She embodies Kara as envisioned by @tomking_tk, @bilquis and Ana Nogueira."

The Duel actress, María Gabriela de Faría, who is also part of the 2025 installment of Superman poured in her support for the newcomer in the franchise by dropping a row of red heart emojis in the comments section.

A fan chimed in, gushing over the cast they commented, "PHENOMENAL CASTING. Milly is absolutely welcomed!!"

Another user seemed to be hooked on Meg Donnelly who portrayed Supergirl in the Legion of Super-Heroes 2023, however, looked forward to see Alcock in the film, "Meg seemed like the obvious choice since she looked the part, but I hope Milly rocks out as supergirl."

Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow is in the writing process by Ana Nogueira meanwhile Warner Bros. is still on the lookout for a director.

The upcoming movie is inspired by Tom King and Bilquis Evely’s comic book series of the same name.
