After being spotted on set late last week in a candid photo, “Supergirl’s” take on classic DC villain Silver Banshee stands fully, officially revealed. ET Online has revealed the first photo of “Supergirl’s” Silver Banshee (Italia Ricci) in full costume.
“We are so excited to be working with Italia,” said “Supergirl” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg in a statement to ET. “We’ve been a fan of her work for years and we cannot wait to see her take on this iconic comic book role.”
Silver Banshee’s introduction and Ricci’s casting was first announced in early December. Silver Banshee’s civilian identity, Siobhan Smythe, first appeared in pics from the upcoming February 22 episode “Truth, Justice and the American Way.” The set photo that appeared online hints at Silver Banshee’s involvement in the upcoming crossover episode with “The Flash,” which will air at the end of March.
According to ET Online, Smythe has been hired as another one Cat Grant’s assistants, putting her in competition with Supergirl’s civilian identity Kara Danvers. The site notes that the pair will “square off as their super alter-egos” later this season.
“Supergirl” airs on Mondays at 8 PM ET on CBS.
