‘Supergirl’: First Look At Odette Annable As Reign In Full Costume Revealed

Supergirl ReignThe CW has released a new image offering fans their first look at Supergirl star Odette Annable as DC Comics villain Reign in full costume.

Introduced on the series as a single mother named Samantha, the Supergirl incarnation of the character is unaware of the fact that she was created as a deadly weapon belonging to a group known as the Worldkillers. Unlike previous villains on the series, Samantha/Reign will slowly discover her true origins over the course of the season and now fans have a glimpse of what to expect when she accepts – or is forced to embrace – her dark destiny.

As with any unveiling of a character’s costume, there will undoubtedly be split reactions to Reign’s outfit, especially considering this suit bears few resemblances to the more revealing attire of her comic book counterpart. Personally, I like the costume, especially if it designed to mirror Supergirl’s outfit in an attempt to reinforce the fact that Samantha has a similar but darker destiny ahead.

Supergirl continues tonight with the episode titled “The Faithful”.

CHAD LOWE GUEST STARS — Kara (Melissa Benoist) investigates a secretive new group whose leader, Thomas Coville (guest star Chad Lowe), has a mysterious connection to Supergirl. Meanwhile, Samantha (Odette Annable) feels like she’s letting Ruby (guest star Emma Tremblay) down, and J’onn (David Harewood) confesses an old secret. Jesse Warn directed the episode written by Paula Yoo & Katie Rose Rogers.

Supergirl airs on Monday at 8:00 PM ET on The CW.

10 Heroes Who Should Get Their Own CW Arrowverse Shows

This past week marked the season finales for the core DC CW shows from the Arrowverse. Legends of Tomorrow ended a little bit earlier than Supergirl, The Flash, and Arrow did, but all of the finales were great. They each successfully concluded the seasons and helped set things in motion for their upcoming seasons of the show. Supergirl teased a potential new villain, while The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow left us off with cliffhangers that will hopefully be resolved early next year.

While each of the DC CW shows were good, this season of Arrow was great! We here at Heroic Hollywood even gave an argument that this season of Arrow was better than this season of The Flash, due to how great this season for Oliver and the other Star City vigilantes were this year. Not only did the show deliver a compelling storyline, great choreographed action, and probably one of the best villains the CW produced (Prometheus), it also marked the return of Slade Wilson/Deathstroke (arguably the second best villain of Arrow), who has been missing since season two. His return at the end of “Missing” made fans excited for his return. Recently actor Manu Bennett has been campaigning for a Deathstroke spin-off within the Arrowverse. The sometimes good, sometimes bad guy was a great presence earlier in Arrow and the character was one of the highlights of the past seasons. It would be interesting to see his backstory if possible, as well as what happens after he helped Oliver and Team Arrow on Lian Yu.

With that said, there are still plenty of characters who could get their own show within the DC universe. The DC CW universe started with Arrow and has quickly spun off into a wide range of shows, each able to stand on their own, each interconnected as well. Because of this, they have created their own coherent cinematic universe. The CW has been very successful with their DC shows as well. They have almost run out of days of the week to have their shows on, and with such a high volume of characters to work with, there’s a great deal of DC characters who could get their own spin-off shows. Next fall we will see Black Lightning (although it’s stated not to be a part of the Arrowverse… yet), so the sky’s the limit for what they can do. Here are a few ideas for spin-offs for the Arrowverse.
