Interestingly, Nogueira doesn’t have much by way of Hollywood writing credits to speak of, so it’s tough to assess how she might interpret the material. As an actress, she’s appeared on shows such as “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Blacklist.”
Gunn, the director of Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” trilogy as well as DC’s “The Suicide Squad,” and Safran, a very successful producer, were hired as the new heads of DC Studios late last year. Rather than try to pick up where Zack Snyder left off, the plan is to reboot the DCU under one roof, with everything that comes out under their direction occupying a unified multiverse. Next month’s “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” will be the last movie under what we used to know as the DCEU. Almost none of the actors from the DCEU will return in the roles they occupy now, though actors may return in new roles, with Aquaman actor Jason Momoa possibly eyed to play Lobo, for example.
The new DCU will kick off next year with the animated series “Creature Commandos,” but things will truly begin in earnest with “Superman: Legacy” in 2025. Gunn will write and direct that movie personally, with David Corenswet playing the new Superman. Rachel Brosnahan is set to play Lois Lane. New actors will also be cast to play Batman and other key roles in upcoming projects such as “The Brave and the Bold.” We’ll be sure to keep you posted as further details on this project and the rest of the DCU come our way.
“Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow” does not currently have a release date.
