Meet the new Supergirl for The Flash movie as director Andy Muschietti reveals he has cast Sasha Calle in the role of Kara Zor-El, the cousin of Superman.
"Been doing a lot of flashbacks lately but today is about a Flash forward. #TheFlashMovie @sashacalle," posted Muschietti on Instagram which happens to include the use of the iconic John Williams Superman score for the Richard Donner and Christopher Reeve movies (watch below).
Details include that the 22-yar-old Sasha Calle, who is known for Young and the Restless, beat out 425 actresses who auditioned for the role, with Muschietti, The Flash producers, and head of DC films, Walter Hamada, involved with the audition process.
“I saw more than four hundred auditions. The US, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Colombia. The talent pool was truly amazing and it was very hard to make a decision, but we finally found an actress who was destined to play this role,” said Muschietti.
Sasha Calle also had a chemistry read with Flash star Ezra Miller, which obviously went well as Calle landed the part.
Calle marks the first Latina Supergirl ever in DC as she is a Boston, MA born-Columbian actress.
Update: Grace Randolph says this version of Supergirl will be a Multiverse version.
The Flash movie is due out on Nov. 4, 2022 also starring Micheal Keaton and Ben Affleck back as their respective versions of Batman.
Supergirl was previously played by Melissa Benoist in The CW Supergirl series, which was recently canceled, and by Helen Slater in the 1984 movie.
