# Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow Takes Flight with Screenwriter Ana Nogueira
## Post-Strike DCU Developments
Despite setbacks caused by the strikes involving Hollywood writers and actors, the DC Universe (DCU) is swiftly regaining momentum. Certain projects within the DCU were already at an advanced stage, which has made it more feasible for them to pick up where they left off following the strikes’ resolution. Among the progressing titles, Superman: Legacy and Creature Commandos are noted, but it’s the latest news on Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow that is capturing attention.
## Ana Nogueira Pens Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow
Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow is shaping up to be an exciting addition to the revamped DCU. Behind every great film is a visionary writer, and Ana Nogueira has been revealed as the scriptwriter for this much-anticipated film. This information comes courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter, which was the first to share the news.

The Hollywood Reporter also suggests that this opportunity is somewhat of a second chance for Nogueira. Warner Bros. previously enlisted her skills for another Supergirl project that ultimately fell through. However, her work caught the eyes of James Gunn and Peter Safran; they were so impressed with her script that they brought her on board for Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow.
## James Gunn Amplifies The Hype
James Gunn himself has spoken highly of Nogueira’s work, suggesting it surpassed his expectations. While the search for the right director continues, Gunn’s approval and excitement only serve to increase anticipation for the project.
## Casting Uncertainty and Justice League’s Future
The role of Supergirl was last filled by Sasha Calle in The Flash, alongside actors Ezra Miller, Michael Keaton, and Ben Affleck. Whether Calle will reprise the role in Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow remains uncertain as casting decisions have yet to be finalized. What we do know is that the stars of Justice League won’t be returning to the DCU.
## A Grittier Supergirl Reimagined
The vision for Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow promises a departure from what fans have previously seen—a “harder and more fucked up” take on the character as opposed to the cleaner, wholesome image typically associated with Supergirl. As the anticipation for this film grows, it does so without a confirmed release date. However, fans can look forward to Superman: Legacy, another title penned and directed by Gunn, set to premiere on July 11, 2025.
The rejuvenation of the DCU continues to unfold, and with skilled contributors like Ana Nogueira at the helm, the future of these superhero adaptations looks bright indeed. Stay tuned for more updates on Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow and the evolving landscape of the DC Universe.
