Smallvilles Laura Vandevoort to appear in supergirl
>"Supergirl" has added another Supergirl to the mix: Laura Vandervoort, who played Kara Zor-El/Supergirl from 2007 to 2011 on "Smallville," has been cast as Indigo, a recurring role on the CBS series, as announced Monday by Warner Bros. Television at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour.
Here's the official description of Indigo: "A living, strong-willed supercomputer that was sentenced to Fort Rozz after turning against the people of Krypton. Now on Earth, Indigo will let nothing stand in her way."
>Additionally, Jeff Branson has been cast as Master Jailer, in another recurring role. Here's the description: "As the forceful and unrelenting jail guard on Fort Rozz, Master Jailer showed no mercy. Now on Earth, he is hellbent on catching all of the Fort Rozz escapees and brutally bringing them to justice."
>Finally, it was revealed that an upcoming episode of Supergirl will take inspiration from Alan Moore’s classic Superman story “For The Man Who Has Everything,” a story that saw Superman living in a dream state where Krypton did not explode and he lived out his life on his home planet, with the show’s thirteenth episode, which will be titled “For the Girl Who has Everything.”
HAHAHA! I love DC's TV side.
Dean Cain (Superman)
Helen Slater (Supergirl)
Laura Vandevroot (Supergirl)
John Wesley Shipp (Flash)
Mark Hamill (Trickster)
Paul Reubens (Penguin's Father)
All of them have shown up in the newer shows as a nod to their live action DC history. DC seems like just such cool dudes, from their comic side to their live action side as well.
Am I missing anyone in the list above?
Desperation Mode, it's only a matter of Time before we see Tom Welling Cameo as Superman
I hate how Routh gets blamed for Superman Returns. An actor can only do so much with the material he has to work with. Singer had no business doing that project.
I really like Routh as CW Ray. He's so earnest as the Atom.
Now THIS is who should've been Supergirl.
Cavill does make a better Superman, but I think Routh was a better Clark.
But Returns had a good beginning and end but nothing in the middle connected the two. It was like 3 movies and one of them was pointless
Dont' know if nice shop or nice surgery... probably the former
I may not have warmed up to the show much but I do like this move. Nice carryover from how they do things in Arrowverse. Now they just need to get Hartley on Arrow and maybe Welling on Supergirl and I think all the nostalgia moves will be fully tapped.
They need Gemma Atkinson for Power Girl, she was rumoured to be up for Kara before Benoist got the role.
I think Smallville set the template for that type of thing by casting Annette O'Toole and eventually Christopher Reeve himself.
For me it's this type of heritage casting that softens the blow of their anti-crossover stance.
cute braniac who doesn't want to be evil.
I don't think so, he's made it clear he isn't really into acting anymore.
yes and no. She was a split personality. two AI's. One a trojan hero and the other hidden one a braniac. The hero took control long enough for Metamorpho to kill her than angst off.
Seriously, that premise has so much more potential, especially his relationship with the sister. That stuff was heartbreaking last week.
boobs you say?
