As Andy Muschietti himself explains, “more than four hundred auditions were held. United States, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Colombia. The range of talents was really amazing and it was very difficult to make a decision, but we finally found an actress who was destined to play this role. ” It has not been until now when DC has confirmed the news by publishing the video call in which the director himself gives the news to the actress showing the Superman suit from Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel to Sasha after asking him if he knew how to fly.
However, Sasha Calle joins the broad cast of DC Universe interpreters as Supergirl, a character who will make her film debut after starring in her own series on The CW as part of the Arrowverse. Of course, at the moment there is no news about the possible return of Henry Cavill as Superman, neither for Flash nor for any other film.
