Oooooh… we have a new Supergirl poster for the CBS series and, well, it’s exactly what you expect. And that’s fine.
We also have a new character popping up too.
Super villain Reactron, a soldier who essentially becomes a nuclear weapon, will be in episode three.
No word yet on who will play him, but at least we know he’ll be in there. Of course, in his time, Reactron was a Superman and Supergirl villain, so we wonder will the Man of Steel be referenced?
In some versions of Supergirl’s story, Reactron is responsible for the deaths of Kara’s parents – so, depending on what way they go, he could be a big deal on the show.
Melissa Benoist leads the series as the title character with a cast that also includes Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Laura Benanti as Alura Zor-El, Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, Chyler Leigh as Alexandra “Alex” Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winslow “Winn” Schott, David Harewood as Hank Henshaw, Peter Facinelli as Maxwell Lord, and, in mystery roles, Dean Cain and Helen Slater.
Hailing from Warner Bros. TV and Berlanti Productions (who also produce the hit DC Comics series “Arrow” and “The Flash” for The CW), “Supergirl” is based on the characters from DC Comics and centers on Kara Zor-El, who comes to Earth after escaping the destruction of Krypton. After many years hiding her abilities, she joins the ranks of her cousin Superman to become the hero she was meant to be.
CBS has unveiled that Supergirl will arrive on October 26th at a special start time of 8:30 pm EST. It will then move to 8pm EST, it’s regular start time, the following week.
