This news actually almost flew under my radar. James Gunn has been getting the ball rolling with the DCU, and the Super family is definitely finding more life. It has been confirmed that Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow has found a writer!
From THR, here’s what they reported:
Ana Nogueira, the actress and playwright who is now making forays into screenwriting, has been tapped to pen Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, a standalone feature centered on the Kryptonian cousin of Superman being developed by DC Studios.
No director is attached and Nogueira’s deal only recently closed.
The project is actually a redo for Nogueira. The writer was quietly hired to pen a Supergirl movie in 2022 when Warner Bros. was developing the project as a spinoff of The Flash, then in post-production. Flash featured Sasha Calle as the heroine and the hope was to launch another DC film franchise.
This is actually incredibly interesting because Ana Nogueira isn’t a writer, and the only thing she has done is a short film. The script for Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow has to be really good if James Gunn has faith in the script. Plus, I think it’s important to always give people a chance, and I think this film could be a knockout.
Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow is supposed to come out in 2027 apparently. I’m just curious who will be the one directing this film and who will be cast as Supergirl. We’ll probably get more answers when Superman: Legacy comes out. I’m excited to see how the DCU will playout.
