The CW’s Supergirl announced Odette Annable as the newest addition to the season three cast, according to Variety online. Annable signed on as next season’s big bad, the worldkiller “Reign”

Supergirl Gets Bigger and Badder

Since the show moved to the CW at the beginning of season two, Supergirl has proven its staying power in the DC television universe. Over the course of season two, the show had crossover events with all three of CW’s other DC shows: Arrow, Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. As a World Killer, Reign could easily lead to more crossovers for season three. The character was introduced in Supergirl‘s New 52 reboot, and her story ran parallel to Doomsday, the Superman villain who eventually killed the hero.

Odette Annable Reign Supergirl

According to Variety, Annable’s iteration of the character shares a backstory with the comics version, though they will look much different in their costumes. So far, all Supergirl‘s characters were given costume changes that helped them “blend in” on Earth, regardless of their planet of origin. Apparently Reign’s look will follow the pattern.

Annable has been on the radar for Supergirl executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg for some time. “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.”

Based on DC comics, Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist (Kara Danvers), Chyler Leigh (Alex Danvers), David Harewood (J’onn J’onzz), Katie McGrath (Lena Luthor), Mehcad Brooks (Jimmy Olsen), and Jeremy Jordan Winn Schott). The show premiered on CBS before transferring to the CW. Season three was confirmed in January, though a return date has yet to be announced.
