The other week, we heard that James Gunn and Peter Safran — the two guys in charge of rebooting the DC Cinematic Universe — were looking for someone to play Supergirl, Superman's Krypton-raised cousin. Candidates in the running were said to include Emilia Jones (Locke & Key, CODA); Meg Donnelly (who's voiced Supergirl in DC animated movies), and Milly Alcock.

Alcock impressed Game of Thrones fans on the prequel series House of the Dragon, where she played young Rhaenyra Targaryen. There's been no decision made yet, but we can see her as Supergirl. Who better than someone who's played a proud, dragon-riding Targaryen to take on the role of a god-like superhero?

Artist 21xfour is helping make the case with some stunning concept art for what Alcock could look like as Kara Zor-El (assuming that's the version of Supergirl they go with; there have been a few over the years, although Kara is the best known). Check it out below:

There's already a Supergirl movie planned, called Supergirl, Woman of Tomorrow, although the character would likely show up in cameo form in another film before getting her own. If Alcock ges the role, she'll be acting alongside folks like David Corenswet, who's been cast as Superman; and Rachel Brosnahan, who is our new Lois Lane.

There are many other members of the DCU yet to be cast, including Batman, Wonder Woman, and lots of other famous characters. Will Alcock be among this lineup when all is said and done? Stay tuned.

Next. for all mankind. For All Mankind bosses tease which characters could return for season 5. dark
