It was recently announced a Supergirl film set in the DCEU was being developed, and it seems the studio is moving quick to find a director. Committed to maintaining a female presence, cinematographer/director extraordinaire Reed Morano seems to be someone Warner Bros. is keen on hiring.
According to Omega Underground, Reed Morano is not only on the studio’s wishlist to direct Supergirl, but also their top choice. Her credits include directing various episodes of Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale and this year’s I Think We’re Alone Now starring Peter Dinklage.
We can back up their claims that she is indeed on top of the studio’s list. However, it doesn’t mean anything is set in stone, but there’s a good chance she’ll be offered the gig as soon as they’re ready. There’s no release date set but I wouldn’t expect the film to start production until 2020 at the earliest.
The Supergirl film is currently being developed from 22 Jump Street writer Oren Uziel and Warner Bros. is keen on hiring a female director. The future is female for DC and they’re ready to embrace it.
