We learned in the Season 2 finale of Supergirl that the titular hero will have to face off against DC Comics villain, Reign next season. We now know who will take on the role. Odette Annable will suit up to play the villain.
In DC Comics lore, Reign is a Worldkiller, on par with Superman’s Doomsday. She was taken as a infant by Kryptonian scientists who give her new abilities. She becomes Supergirl’s enemy when she arrives on Earth planning to conquer it.
Executive producer, Andrew Kreisberg gave some thoughts on Annable’s casting: “Greg and I have wanted to work with Odette for years. We are beyond excited to have her join our cast in the scary, powerful and heartbreaking role of Reign.”
Annable other film and TV credits include Pure Genius, The Astronauts Wives Club, House, Cloverfield, and You Again.
