Deadline are reporting that a new actress has been cast to play the DC hero ‘Supergirl’ in the upcoming ‘Flash‘ movie. This marks the first appearance of the charecter in DC’s Cinematic Universe although she does feature in The CW’s hit show ‘Supergirl’ (played by Mellissa Benoist). Chosen from over 425 actresses who auditioned, Daytime Emmy nominee Sasha Calle (The Young and the Restless) has scored the feature role as Supergirl. The Boston, MA born-Columbian actress will be first Latina Supergirl ever in DC’s history.
Warner Bros. has set a 24-hour immersive virtual fan experience that will feature anything and everything from the DC Multiverse — and it’s all free.
The event is set to kick-off on August 22 at 10am PT and will reach fans on all seven continents.
