Sam Witwer signs up to Supergirl Season 4 as Agent Liberty…

July 19th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Oh, nerd legend Sam Witwer has joined The CW’s Arrowverse as season four’s big bad… Agent Liberty.

Witwer has starred in The Walking Dead, Smallville, The Mist, Clone Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Rebels, he was Galen Marek in Star Wars: The Force Unleahed games and most recently he played Darth Maul in Solo: A Star War Story.

And now he’s going to make Supergirl’s life difficult.

In the show’s interpretation on the character, Agent Liberty is the ruthless and terrifying founder and figurehead of Children of Liberty, a hate group that supports a human-first world order. According to a description from the show’s producers, he’s “a brilliant orator in the guise of a family man” and the scariest thing about him is how easily he can convince people that he’s right. Given that Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and the DEO tend to be pro-alien integration, it’s definitely fair to assume they won’t get along with Agent Liberty and his Children of Liberty.

We’re big fans of Witwer here at FTN, so this is awesome news… in fact, why not, since you’re here, read our interview with him a while back here.

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….
