Supergirl was revealed to be part of that slate as a project without any connection to the Flash movie.

The comic featured Kara Zor-El, aka Supergirl, who, along with superdog Krypto, gets caught up in a young alien girl’s galaxy-spanning revenge quest. Gunn and Safran liked the work Nogueira had done on the previous Supergirl project and quietly brought her back, even giving her an overall DC writing deal. DC Studios is keeping the project’s plot under wraps.
Nogueira has built a thriving writing career that includes her play Which Way to the Stage that debuted off-Broadway in 2022 and she is now working on an adaptation of author Alice Sola Kim’s short story Mothers, Lock Up Your Daughters, set up at Warners
