With Supergirl’s big TV appearance just over a month away, Warner Bros have given us our first look at The Red Tornado.

Salem and Peaky Blinders actor Iddo Goldberg (below) stars as Dr T O Morrow and also the android the Red Tornado in the series.

Warner Bros, describes the character as such: “Red Tornado is the most advanced android the world has ever seen. Designed by scientist T.O. Morrow for the U.S. Army as the ultimate super weapon, he soon becomes sentient, posing a grave danger to National City — including the people Supergirl cares about most.”

We’re assuming T O Morrow will simply be Red Tornado’s creator as in the comics but it’s interesting that Goldberg plays both character…

Supergirl swoops in on Monday, October 26th

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
