We have some casting news for DC Universe fans. Sasha Calle has been cast to play the girl of steel Supergirl. We have Deadline to thank for the news about the Colombian actress playing this heroine. Here’s what we know about the audition process and how she will debut in Warner Bros “The Flash” film.
The Flash director Andy Muschietti watched all the auditions and I hear, along with DC Films boss Walter Hamada and the producers, was blown away by the actress’ toughness and vulnerability that she brought to the role.
“I saw more than four hundred auditions. 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, who has a keen eye for discovering talent, in particular all the young actors from the first It movie.
The actresses weren’t informed what part they were reading for; until very late in the process. Calle also did a chemistry read with Flash star Ezra Miller. All auditions, chem reads and meetings, especially during Covid, were done over Zoom. Calle will fly to The Flash production soon.
I’m looking forward to seeing Sasha Calle filling in those red boots. With the CW Supergirl series ending with season six. She has some shoes to fill given how many people have loved Melissa Benoist version of the character. As always, let us know what you think down below and I’ll talk to you later.
