Going forward in the first wave of content from James Gunn and Peter Safran is a bunch of content revolving around the family of steel Clark Kent and Kara. Well, DC has finally found a writer for the upcoming Supergirl movie.
Ana Nogueira, an actress and playwright who is now making the journey into screenwriting, has been brought on by James Gunn to write the Supergirl movie, titled “Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow”.
The movie will be a standalone feature centered on the Kryptonian cousin of Superman being developed by DC Studios.
While no director is currently signed onto the project, Nogueira’s deal has only recently closed. In reality, the project is a redo for Nogueira. Back in 2022, the writer was hired to write a Supergirl spin-off movie from The Flash. The Flash movie featured Sasha Calle as the heroine and the hope was to launch another DC film franchise.
Those hopes were seemingly dashed when Gunn and Safran were brought in to oversee a reorganized DC arm. That project was tossed as the new execs focused on creating a brand new slate, separate from former DC Films boss Walter Hamada’s vision.
Early this year, Supergirl was revealed to be part of that slate as a project without any connection to the Flash movie. Rather it was now connected, in title and story, to a comic book mini-series written by Tom King that was published in 2021 and 2022 and sought to redefine the character as something more than just a girl version of Superman.
Honestly, while I loved Sasha Calle’s portrayal of Supergirl, I am curious to see how this one will be handled in the future.
