Watch out DC Universe fans, Supergirl is back for another season in The CW on October 9. A teaser trailer was shown in San Diego’s Comic Con, unveiling Kara‘s fate with darkness and the evil villains that surrounds it.
Before the Comic Con, new characters were revealed through That Hashtag Show.
One of whom as the main villain is Morgan Edge, a corrupt and intimidating real-estate titan who would do anything to get what he wants even hiring a madman to blow up a ceremony honoring Supergirl. Another villain is Bloodsport, who was an ex-military, ruthless and threatening, was employed by Edge to blow up the waterfront with an underwater nuke.
Heroes and Marvel’s Agents of S. H.I.E.L.D star, Adrian Pasdar will appear as the business tycoon Morgan Edge.
In addition to these formidable villains is a superhuman named Psi. She is deadly and seductive that lures her victims by bringing out their darkest deepest fears. She has both physical and mental powers that tests Supergirl’s own abilities.
Yael Grobglas from Jane the Virgin will play the psychic Psi.
Samantha March has a daughter named Ruby March. They have a camaraderie together that is probably adorable for the fans and always looks out for each other. However, Sam has an alter-ego “Reign” who is merciless and an unstoppable superhuman. Sam, who would sacrifice everything to protect Ruby, struggles to maintain the balance with her humanity as opposed to Reign.
Ruby is a shy, sensitive adolescent girl who is fiercely loyal to her mother but when she feels she needs to speak up, she’s not shy about it. It would be interesting to see these two attempts to battle each other’s wits.
Emma Tremblay from Wayward Pines will play as Ruby March whose obsession with the Girl of Steel will put her into trouble.
Further exciting news, Odette Annable from House will play the role of Reign. Her character is described as the big bad of Season 3 which is connected with World Killer storyline from the comic books. Reign was one of the World Killers that Zor-El created the blood-thirsty super powerful monsters.
Executive producer, Andrew Kreisberg said, “Greg (Berlanti) and I have wanted to work with Odette for years. We are beyond excited to have her join our cast in the scary, powerful and heartbreaking role of Reign.”
Additionally, Carl Lumbly who has voiced several Justice League scenes in the animated series will play as J’onzz. M’yrnn J’onzz is the father of Martian Manhunter. He is from the planet Mars and known for being a “pacifist religious leader”.
Most of the fans seem to view Supergirl being part of the “Arrowverse” where characters from different series like Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow interact and live on the same universe. It’s supposedly called the DC Universe, but maybe in the television prime time, these characters fight crime and stand up for what’s right in the so-called “Arrowverse”.
It looks like The Girl of Steel is up for a new, thrilling and probably the most terrifying batch of villains yet. Hopefully, even almost giving up to her “humanity” side (based on the teaser trailer) Kara will be able to achieve the peace and freedom she wants for her and the world.
