Supergirl season 3 trailers and clips
Ahead of new episodes landing, producer Andrew Kreisberg recently took us through a little of what we can expect when the show returns…
There’s also loads of spoilery stuff in the Arrowverse Super Season trailer, including brand new Supergirl clips…
Here was our first real look at the darkness Kara has to face in Supergirl season 3, straight out of SDCC:
Supergirl season 3 showrunner
Just a quick update to our Supergirl season 3 news hub, here: the series is getting a new showrunner.
Deadline reports that season 1 and 2 showrunner Ali Adler is shifting into an executive consultant role, with Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner stepping into the breach as co-showrunners. Andrew Kreisberg, who created the show with Adler, remains on board as another co-showrunner.
Adler has signed an overall deal with CBS (The CW’s sibling network, where Supergirl first aired), and will work on projects including Dynasty.
Queller and Rovner have both worked on Supergirl since season 1, in a number of producer-y roles, so this shouldn’t be too drastic of a change.
We’ll keep you posted as we hear more.
Supergirl season 3 cast and crew
This section contains spoilers for the Supergirl season 2 finale.
At the end of Supergirl season 2, we saw another baby leaving Krypton the day it exploded. She was sent to Earth, with a view to “reign”, by a group of shifty-looking scientists.
Fans quickly worked out that this new addition to the show would grow up to be Reign, a biological weapon from the comics.
Reign’s comic book backstory – Kryptonian scientists create her as a super-powerful ‘Worldkiller’, then send her out into the galaxy without any real instructions – looks set to be recreated on screen.
And now we know who will be playing the adult version of Reign in Supergirl season 3: Odette Annable, who you might recognise from Cloverfield, Banshee or House MD, has nabbed the role.
“Greg [Berlanti] and I have wanted to work with Odette for years,” said executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “We are beyond excited to have her join our cast in the scary, powerful and heartbreaking role of Reign.”
It’s been revealed that Bloodsport will be among the villains giving Supergirl a tough time of it in season 3 of The CW’s show.
The Hashtag Show have gotten hold of some brand new casting details and character breakdowns for the third season, which appear to confirm that the Superman villain and heavy Lex Luthor influencer will be popping up, along with Reign and Morgan Edge, who we already know will be played by Heroes star Adrian Pasdar.
Here are all the new details…
MORGAN EDGE – Male, 40s, Open Ethnicity. As corrupt as he is intimidating, he intends to clear the area one way or another, and he has enlisted the services of a madman to blow up the area during a special ceremony in Supergirl’s honor. This savvy and formidable titan of industry is pushing through a huge new redevelopment plan for the city’s waterfront – and he doesn’t care if he has to uproot the entire indigenous immigrant population to implement his money-grubbing scheme. …RECURRING GUEST STAR
ROBERT DUBOIS/BLOODSPORT – Male, 30-40s…Looking for memorable, and distinctive performers. This evil and threatening Merc is an ex-military man who has infiltrated his former base and stolen a variety of articles that he uses to cloak an underwater nuclear device. As we later learn, he is in the employ of Morgan Edge, and he has been hired to blow up the waterfront with an underwater nuke…PRINCIPAL
GAIL MARSH – Female, Late 20s, early 30s, Open Ethnicity. The deadly and seductive PSI (aka Gail Marsh), a DC Comics foe of Supergirl, possesses psychic abilities which allow her to bring out her victim’s darkest fears. While she is a physical threat, her real power comes in bringing the Girl of Steel to her knees without throwing a punch. LEAD GUEST STAR
Supergirl season 3 Reign
In the comics, Reign arrived on on Earth some time after Kara Zor-El, after realising that Krypton – and her creators – were no more.
Reign rampaged through New York, and tried to convince the Maiden of Might to join her in taking over the planet. That offer, as you’d expect, didn’t go down too well. It has also been teased that Reign isn’t the only Worldkiller in existence.
We’re excited to see how this arc will be adapted for the small screen, and what the chemistry between Odette Annable and Melissa Benoist will be like.
Sam (Odette Annable) will soon discover the extent of her powers as Reign this season.
“She has no idea that she is Reign; she has no idea that she was the baby in the pod at the end of last season,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg previously explained. “So the journey that she takes this season is watching her realise her heritage and see how it manifests.”
Looks pretty manifest-y in this newly-released image of the villain in question, wouldn’t you say?
