The DC Universe just got its new Supergirl, Sasha Calle.
Supergirl is coming to the DC universe with the forthcoming Flash movie. On social media on Friday, Director Andy Muschietti announced that Sasha Calle, a Daytime Emmy nominee for The Young and the Restless, was cast in the role.
Sasha Calle was one of over 400 actresses who auditioned for the part, according to Deadline, but most of them didn’t know what role it was for until late in the process. Many of the actresses had to do chemistry tests with star Ezra Miller (all over Zoom), which indicates that the character, though that’s just speculation, plays a fairly important role in the film.
In the movie that is inspired by the Flashpoint Paradox arc from the comics, which includes several realities, she now joins Ezra Miller, who is returning as the fan-favorite crimson speedster. Muschietti previously announced that after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, Ben Affleck would also reprise his role as Batman for the film, while Michael Keaton would have a “substantial” part as a parallel universe Batman.
Sasha Calle will be the first actress to play Supergirl on the big screen since Helen Slater in 1984’s Supergirl.

She was nominated for the Daytime Emmys last year in the Best Young Actress in a Drama Series category. She also appeared in Socially Awkward, a YouTube miniseries.
