‘Supergirl’: Betty Buckley Joins Cast As Patricia Arias

SupergirlTelevision legend Betty Buckley has been cast as Patricia Arias in the upcoming season of Supergirl.

According to TV Insider, Buckley will be playing Samantha Arias’ adoptive mother who has been estranged from her daughter since she herself became a teen mom. Sam, of course, is actually Reign, a supervillain sent to Earth by a group of evil Kryptonians just before their own planet was annihilated. It is unknown right now whether or not Patricia is aware that her daughter is a secret supervillain, but knowing the show she probably won’t have long to find out.

Buckley has been a star of several award-winning shows over the years, including appearances on Eight is Enough, Oz, Pretty Little Liars, and The Leftovers. She will make her first appearance on Supergirl in the third season’s seventh episode entitled “Wake Up.”

6 Times The Justice League Came Up Short

Previous1 of 7

Justice LeagueThe Justice League is comprised of the best and brightest heroes the DC Universe has to offer. When you’ve got Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman all on one team, it’s a hard combination to beat. Despite their combined strength, the Justice League has been taken down quite a few times in their long history.

Over the years, the League has faced all kinds of threats, ranging from a grief-stricken Black Adam on a rampage to an invasion of White Martians. Usually the Justice Leauge is able to overcome these threats, but sometimes they don’t have what it takes to stop evil. Of course, these are comic books and things usually shift back towards the light side in time, but that doesn’t mean darkness can’t win, at least temporarily.

Since Justice League finally hits theaters in November, now seems like as good a time as any to talk about a few times the team has fallen short. With that said, hit Next to learn more about six times the Justice League lost!
