One of the most identifiable Superman villains is the backwards speaking Bizarro. It’s only right that we see Bizarro appear on CBS’ Supergirl and after an announcement some time ago, tonight is finally the night. Me am not excited!
“Kara faces off against her mirror image when Bizarro (Hope Lauren), a twisted version of Supergirl, sets out to destroy her. Also, Kara grows closer with Cat’s son, Adam (Blake Jenner).”
“Bizarro” was written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Rachel Shukert, and directed by John Showalter. It will be interesting to see Bizarro reinterpreted for the small screen, especially as the character has appeared within recent DC Comics titles and was last featured on The CW’s Smallville. In the clip provided, we could see that Bizarro starts out as more Supergirl clone of sorts, but that Hope Lauren will play the character in its more comic-book inspired form later in the episode. The effects look great and “Bizarro” should be another fun episode in the show’s first season.
We also have more with Maxwell Lord (Peter Facinelli) and Adam (Blake Jenner). Lord, as played by Facinelli has been fantastic and Jenner (Benoist’s husband) is a fun addition to the cast. As the series has taken a break from the Kara/James/Winslow romance, the drama feels as if it’s being served better with an outside addition to a potential love interest and side story for Kara when she’s not saving the world.
Melissa Benoist leads the cast of Supergirl with a cast that also includes Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Laura Benanti as Alura Zor-El, Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, Chyler Leigh as Alexandra “Alex” Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winslow “Winn” Schott, Jenna Dewan Tatum as Lucy Lane, David Harewood as Hank Henshaw, Peter Facinelli as Maxwell Lord, with Dean Cain and Helen Slater.
