UPDATE: Comicbook.com has confirmed that Lachman has been cast as Roulette on the show, with this character description:

“Based on the classic DC Comics character, Roulette runs an underground alien fight club in National City and she is eager to get Supergirl in the ring,”

Supergirl Season 2 will be flying into The CW in just a few weeks as the Girl of Steel continues her adventures to protect National City. YVR Shoots recently spotted Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. actress Dichen Lachman on the set of Supergirl in a red dress with a dragon tattoo, which resembles the DC villainous Roulette. You can check out a few photos below, where you can also spot Maggie Sawyer (Floriana Lima) and Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh).

The character was last seen in live-action in episode 5 of Season 9 of CW’s Smallville where she was played by Steph Song who was part of an Oliver Queen centric episode. Roulette has also appeared in animation in Justice League: Unlimited, which you can see a clip of below.

“Now, in Season Two, Kara has left the safety of being Cat Grant’s assistant in order to figure out what she really wants to do, while as Supergirl she continues to work at the DEO., protecting the citizens of National City and searching for Jeremiah and Cadmus. Along the way, she will team up with Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) to battle new villains, as she strives to balance her personal life with her life as a superhero.”

Supergirl Season 2 is set to take flight on Monday, October 10 at 8/7c on The CW.

    LOL, Marvel actors and directors are defecting right and left to DC.

    • Axxell

      LOL!…”Defecting”? She died in Agents of SHIELD 2 seasons ago.

      Marvel gets the prime…DC gets the scraps.

    I got no comments about casting, but Roulette happens to be one of those characters I find just frigging unnecessary and fanservice-y.

    Never mind the fact that her sporadic appearances through DC lore never amounted to anything substantial, that ridicilous outfit and the stereotypical asian villainy have always rubbed me the wrong way.
