With the rumor mill churning over who is actually up for the role, one House of the Dragon star has emerged as a finalist for DCU’s Supergirl.

While it’s Marvel that’s most publicly been on the chopping block for having a rough ride in the superhero sub-genre, DC really isn’t that far behind.

Milly Alcock and Meg Donnelly are the pair being considered for Supergirl in the DCU, with Cailee Spaeny and Emilia Jones previously reported to be involved.

Australian actress Milly Alcock debuted in House of the Dragon since 2022, playing a younger version of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen. Similarly, Meg Donnelly is best known for appearing in the Zombies movies.
