Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow has officially found a screenwriter, and she comes to the project with some new experience writing the DC character.
Per The Hollywood ReporterIt was announced that Ana Nogueira was hired to write the script Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow. Nogueira is perhaps best known for her work as an actress, appearing in shows such as the Vampire Diaries And The black list, although she has since focused more on her writing career. This also includes the stage play Which way to the stage, as well as a Warner Bros.’ upcoming adaptation of Alica Sola Kim’s short film Mothers, lock up your daughters.
According to the new THR report, Nogueira was also quietly hired by the studio to write a script for “A” in 2022 Supergirl Film that would have served as a spin-off The Lightning, which introduced Sasha Calle as a new incarnation of the beloved heroine. The report states that this planned spinoff was scrapped when James Gunn and Peter Safran came on board at DC Studios to design an entirely new continuity called the DCU, although it was unclear to the two whether Calle would return to the role or not from Supergirl. However, according to the report, the two were impressed with the work Nogueira did on the scrapping Supergirl film, which led to her getting the writing job Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow for the DCU as part of an overall writing deal.
Who will play Supergirl in Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow?
While it’s theoretically possible that Calle could return as Supergirl for the film, it’s most likely that the character will be recast considering there’s no connection to her The Lightning. Gunn and Safran may prefer to distance this new project from that film as much as possible, considering how bad it is The Lightning performed below average in cinemas. In any case, fans are probably still a long way from official casting announcements Woman of tomorrow early in its development. The film also doesn’t have an official director named yet.
It is assumed Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow will be heavily inspired by author Tom King’s comic miniseries of the same name. Gunn has previously spoken about how unique this story is, explaining in an X post: “Superman is a man sent to Earth and raised by loving parents, while Supergirl in this story is a character born on a piece of Krypton grew up. She watched. “Everyone around her is dying horribly, so she’s a much more jaded character.”
