The Younger and the Stressed standout Sasha Calle will seem as Supergirl within the upcoming movie adaptation of The Flash, filmmaker Andy Muschietti revealed at present in a video posted to his Instagram account. The director reportedly noticed actually a whole bunch of actors to play the character, who will debut within the 2022 superhero movie, which may even star Ezra Miller because the titular Scarlet Speedster and Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck, every reprising their variations of Batman. It isn’t but clear whether or not Calle’s Supergirl will hail from the primary DC Movies timeline or from one other location within the multiverse.
Calle would be the newest live-action iteration of Supergirl, following within the footsteps of Helen Slater, who performed the position in a 1984 film, and Melissa Benoist, who at present headlines Supergirl on The CW. Set within the shared DC continuity followers name the Arrowverse, Benoist’s sequence is ready to conclude on the finish of its upcoming season.
You’ll be able to see Muschietti and Calle make the announcement beneath.
The video, which takes the type of a video name between Muschietti and Calle, first feels fairly staged, with the filmmaker asking whether or not Calle can fly, and Calle enjoying the joke off in a low-key style. Fairly rapidly, although, it appears as if this is perhaps the second that Calle truly realized in regards to the gig, as she is visibly emotional when the director reveals her a Superman costume and tells her that “you are Supergirl.”
Calle marks the primary time the character has been performed by a Latina. Within the comics and on The CW’s Supergirl, Kara Zor-El is Superman’s first cousin, and is a blonde-haired, blue-eyed character. In a tie-in comedian launched across the time of Man of Metal, Kara Zor-El was depicted as blonde as effectively — however as a substitute of being Sueprman’s cousin, she was an ancestor of his, who traveled to earth 1000’s of years in the past and was stranded right here, her scout ship being the one Clark Kent discovered within the film.
