In an onslaught of Supergirl news, we learned that 3 major DC villains are set to make an appearance in Kara’s life sooner than later. Hope Lauren, Jeff Branson and former Supergirl, Laura Vandervoort are ready to make Supergirl‘s life a bit more interesting.
With Helen Slater (a former Supergirl) already cast as Kara’s Earth mother, it was only a matter of time before Smallville‘s Supergirl was added to the show. At the Television Critics Association press tour earlier today, CBS revealed that Laura Vandevoort (the Supergirl of Smallville) will be guest starring in an upcoming episode. Playing the less than heroic Indigo, the hero turned villain is described as “a living, strong-willed supercomputer that was sentenced to Fort Rozz after turning against the people of Krypton. Now on Earth, Indigo will let nothing stand in her way.” Indigo is set to make her debut in Supergirl‘s 15th episode.
Alongside Vandervoort’s announcement, Jeff Branson was also revealed to be playing a DC comics villain. Set to suit up as the Master Jailer, Branson’s character is described as “the forceful and unrelenting jail guard on Fort Rozz who showed no mercy. Now on Earth, he is hellbent on catching all of the Fort Rozz escapees and brutally bringing them to justice.”. It is still uncertain as to when the Master Jailer will be making his appearance.
The third and final villain announcement of the day comes courtesy of a new synopsis. As hinted at in last week’s episode, it seems that the sly Maxwell Lord is indeed constructing his own version of the woman of steel. The Synopsis is as follows:
“Bizarro” – Kara faces off against her mirror image when Bizarro (Hope Lauren), a twisted version of Supergirl, sets out to destroy her. Also, Kara grows closer with Cat’s son, Adam (Blake Jenner), on SUPERGIRL, Monday, Feb. 1 (8:00-9:00 PM) on the CBS Television Network.
That’s right, Kara is set to face off against her own Bizarro played by the beautiful Hope Lauren. Forged form the remnants of a destroyed Red Tornado, Bizarro may prove to be Kara’s toughest challenge yet. I guess we will find out February 1st.
Supergirl is set to return January 28th.
