“Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow” Will Soar Into Theaters in June 2026

James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DC Studios is moving quickly on Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow now that the film has its star in Milly Alcock and its director in Craig Gillespie.

On Tuesday, DC Studios and Warner Bros. announced that Gillespie and Alcock’s marquee film will soar into theaters on June 26, 2026. This appropriately makes Supergirl the second film under the new look DC Studios to get a release date, after Gunn’s Superman, which flies into theaters in July 2025.

Gillespie (I, Tonya, Cruella) will direct Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow from a script by Ana Nogueira. Alcock, who broke out in season one of HBO’s first Game of Thrones spinoff House of the Dragon, will play Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin, a young woman who cuts an entirely different figure and hails from an arguably more troubled childhood. Nogueira’s script is inspired by the comic by Tom King and Bilquis Evely, which made Kara Zor-El a far more complicated character than the Supergirl we got to know in CW’s Supergirl series.

Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow is part of Gunn and Safran’s “Chapter 1: Gods & Monsters,” the first phase of films and TV series that will kick off their new, united DC Studios universe. Along with Gunn’s Superman, there is director Andy Muschietti’s The Bold and the Brave, a new Batman movie that will feature a new Dark Knight—Robert Pattinson will still play his version of Batman in director Matt Reeves’ The Batman sequel, which will exist in a different timeline from the main one that features Superman and Supergirl. Supergirl itself is slated to start shooting this fall.

Warner Bros. announced some non-DC Studios titles on Tuesday as well, including New Line’s Mortal Kombat 2, which has Simon McQuoid returning to direct from a script by Jeremy Slater. The film, based on the popular video game series created by Ed Boon and John Tobias, will punch its way into theaters on October 24, 2025. The studio also announced another New Line film, the horror film Companion, which will debut on January 10, 2025. It’s a sci-fi thriller by director Drew Hancock and stars Jack Quaid and Sophie Thatcher.

Then there’s Weapons, which is directed by Zach Cregger and stars Josh Brolin, Julia Garner, Alden Ehrenreich, Austin Abrams, and Cary Christopher, with Benedict Wong and Amy Madigan.
