Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow locks in release date as DC Studios expands cinematic universe

DC Studios Unveils Release Dates for Upcoming Blockbusters

DC Studios wasted no time in marking its calendar for the highly anticipated release of *Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow*, now that the film has found its director.

Set to soar into cinemas on June 26, 2026, DC and Warner Bros. made the announcement on Tuesday, solidifying its place as one of the studio’s flagship projects under the revitalized DC banner. This announcement comes hot on the heels of James Gunn and Peter Safran’s appointment to oversee the transformation of DC’s cinematic landscape. The duo’s influence has already been felt with the establishment of a release date for the upcoming Superman film, currently in James Gunn’s capable hands and slated for a July 2025 debut.

Filmmaker Craig Gillespie, handpicked by Gunn and Safran, is set to guide *Supergirl* to the screen, with Milly Alcock (known for her role in *House of the Dragon*) stepping into the iconic role of Kara Zor-El, Superman’s cousin. Drawing inspiration from the acclaimed Tom King and Bilquis Evely comic, the film, penned by Ana Nogueira, promises a departure from the tone of the CW’s *Supergirl* series.

Insiders reveal plans for *Supergirl* to commence filming later this year, adding to the momentum of DC Studios’ expanding cinematic universe, which includes the eagerly awaited Batman film from director Andy Muschietti.

In addition to *Supergirl*, Warner Bros. unveiled a lineup of release dates for several other high-profile projects. Among them is New Line’s *Mortal Kombat 2*, slated to hit theaters on Oct. 24, 2025, with Simon McQuoid returning to direct from a script by Jeremy Slater, based on the iconic video game franchise.

The ensemble cast for the sequel boasts names like Karl Urban, Adeline Rudolph, Lewis Tan, and more, promising an electrifying return to the adrenaline-fueled universe. The production sees a powerhouse team of producers including Todd Garner, James Wan, and Simon McQuoid, among others.

Meanwhile, New Line’s sci-fi thriller *Companion* is set to open the year on Jan. 10, 2025, featuring a stellar cast led by Jack Quaid and Sophie Thatcher. Produced by Zach Cregger and a team of industry veterans, the film promises to deliver an immersive and captivating cinematic experience.

Following suit is *Weapons*, scheduled for release on Jan. 16, 2026, a gripping tale helmed by Cregger and featuring an ensemble cast including Josh Brolin and Julia Garner. With a track record of delivering spine-chilling horror, the team behind *Weapons* is poised to captivate audiences once again.

Wrapping up the announcements, Warner Bros. set a date for the animated holiday spectacle *Margie Claus*, scheduled to hit screens on Nov. 5, 2027. With Melissa McCarthy lending her voice to the titular character and producing alongside Ben Falcone and Pilar Flynn, the film promises to be a heartwarming addition to the holiday season.
