It looks like not only is Superman coming to Supergirl this season on the The CW, but he’s bringing one go his most iconic villains…
EW have reported that actor Frederick Schmidt will be appearing as Metallo in the show and his appearance may not be a one off:
“When international assassin John Corben is badly injured after taking on both Supergirl and Superman, he is reborn by a shadow organization into the Kryptonite-powered supervillain Metallo.”
Metallo, is a long-standing Superman villain and, depending on which version of the character you’re reading, he’s a part man, part machine villain with a Kryptonite heart.
We’re loving that Superman and his rogues gallery now exist in The CW, we’re just excited to see if Flash’s take on the Flashpoint story will see Supergirl existing on Earth One with Arrow, Legends, Flash and all the others. Please make this happen!
