Ana Nogueira has been hired to pen the Supergirl film for the upcoming re-imagining of the DC heroine. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news and also revealed that Nogueira had been hired onto the Sasha Calle-led feature that was in the works before The Flash came and went. Calle was that film’s standout and we hope that they can return to play this version of Kara, which is inspired by the Tom King run of comics that Nogueira is set to adapt. Best known for the CW’s The Vampire Diaries, Nogueira is also a playwright and actress whose work on the last Supergirl script earned her an overall writing deal with DC Studios.
