What is Supergirl: Woman Of Tomorrow about?

Supergirl: Woman Of Tomorrow has Ana Nogueira is writing the script; no release date has been announced.

Supergirl: Woman Of Tomorrow is officially described by DC as a “science fiction adventure, which will be based on Tom King’s amazing, award-winning recent comics stories, presents a Supergirl viewers are not used to seeing.”

Variety also said in their earlier reporting that the films centers on “Superman’s cousin Kara Zor-El and her superdog Krypto.”

James Gunn said during last year’s big DCU press announcement held at the end of January: “In our series we see the difference between Superman who was sent to Earth and raised by loving parents from the time he was an infant, versus Supergirl who was raised on a rock, a chip off Krypton, and watched everyone around her die and be killed in terrible ways for the first 14 years of her life, and then came to Earth when she was a young girl,” said Gunn during last year’s DCU press announcement. She’s much more hardcore; she’s not exactly the Supergirl we’re used to seeing.”
