The loss of multiple directors was unable to help the production firms lay down the groundwork for the Flash narrative and with directors constantly dropping out of the project it was looking like an impossible task. But finally, with Andy Muschietti on board, Ezra Miller’s solo Flash movie is in the production phase and will see Kara Danvers starring next to Barry Allen. The Detective Comics Extended Universe (DCEU) has just cast Sasha Calle to play the role of Supergirl in the next upcoming Warner Bros. and DCEU’s combined production movie, which will finally give the red speedster his first independent solo movie that has gone by years in the making. Andy Muschietti in the video is shown telling Sasha Calle how she made the cut. Check it out

In 2020 DC grabbed the headlines by announcing that Michael Keaton was coming back to play Batman in the Flash movie. His return hinted that the Flash may have multiple timelines that could have been included in the mix while still staying true to the DCEU.
Along with Michael Keaton, there is Ben Affleck who was portrayed as Batman in the most recent Justice League movie and hinted at the possible return of Jason Mamoa as ‘Arthur Curry’ also known as Aquaman, Gal Gadot as ‘Diana Prince’ also known as The Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller as Barry Allen also known as The Flash and Ray Fisher as ‘Victor Stone’ also known as Cyborg. Along with the standard cast of Ben Affleck as ‘Bruce Wayne’ also known as Batman and Henry Cavill as ‘Clark Kent’ also known as Superman.
Apart from this mix there still seems to be a few characters missing the Justice League franchise cut who have often appeared in the comic version of the Justice League franchise. One of them is Hal Jordan also known as ‘Green Lantern’ and J’onn J’onzz also known as the ‘Martian Manhunter’. With Ryan Reynolds appearing as the famous test pilot turned green colored vigilante in his movie, The Martian Manhunter still seems to be eluding the big screen. The complete cast of the Justice League is certain to raise hell for even the most villainous foes in the DCEU and with Supergirl Sasha Calle filling in for Superman, the new Flash movie may just give Detective Comics Extended Universe the right nudge to get the gears moving in the right direction.
The announcement by Andy Muschietti has come as a piece of extremely good news for the DC fans, as they were aware of a solo Supergirl movie in the making but never could be taken ahead due to the lack of a narrative in the Detective Comics Extended Universe (DCEU). But now with Sasha Calle on board, we could soon see the movie being rolled out in the coming times. Sasha Calles’s addition to the Detective Comics Extended Universe (DCEU) also comes at a good time as Melissa Benoist who plays the role of Supergirl in the CW television network channel is coming to an end. Which avoids any collision with the upcoming Supergirl cameo in the Flash movie.
It has still not been confirmed whether Sasha Calle would be playing the role of Kara Zor’El or Kara Danvers in the upcoming Flash movie. Especially with Zack Snyder’s version of the Justice league concluding to the end of its Justice League narrative, it is pretty evident that Snyder’s cut will not be setting up a narrative welcoming the Supergirl to the Justice League platform, it might run parallel to the Zack Snyder’s storyline and eventually merge into one narrative to finally bring Superman and Kara Zor’El on the same screen and maybe an epic showdown with the antagonist of the DCEU – Darkseid.
Sasha Calle made the cut by auditioning for the same role from amongst 425 candidates, being auditioned by Andy Muschietti, Walter Hamada (DC Films Boss) & the other producers, and was able to blow them away with her toughness and vulnerability that she brought to the role. Andy Muschietti has a knack for finding unique talent, just the way he did with the cast of ‘IT’. Andy Muschietti exclaimed that he had to go through a pool of almost four hundred auditions and with the talent-filled cast being so diverse and talented he found it extremely difficult to choose. But finally, they found what they were looking for in Sasha Calle.
