Kevin Smith has taken his place beside The CW's “Supergirl” writers Anna Musky-Goldwyn and Gabe Llanas in a Daxamite throne room. Smith revealed the throne room, part of the set for the upcoming “Supergirl” episode he is directing, to the world via a post on Instagram.
Every ep of @supergirlcw begins with a spectacular script - and the episode I'm nominally directing this month was written by these fine folks from the @supergirlwriters, @amgfitlife & @professorllanas! They're sitting in a room they wrote! What was once their words has been made manifest in wood, steel & styrofoam! #KevinSmith #supergirl #daxamite #supergirlseason2 #tylerharron
A mere hour earlier, Musky-Goldwyn had posted a similar picture. Though the two thrones in the back of the room were obscured in her photo, the metallic, visor-clad presumably Daxamite guards with their staff weapons were in full view.
Smith confirmed the episode he is directing will touch on Daxam, Krypton’s antagonistic neighboring world that was consumed by radiation when its sister world exploded, when he posted an image teasing Daxamite technology to Instagram late last week. The image showed Smith standing near a clear glass TV made to look like a prop alien control panel.
Daxamite technology! Spending Friday night in space shooting @supergirlcw! Dax tech created by the amazing #tylerharron. That is a clear glass TV by Planar. Looks high tech but you can watch movies on it like a regular TV. Not a commercial, I'm just impressed! #KevinSmith #supergirl #supergirlseason2 #daxamite
The return of the planet Daxam and its inhabitants has been teased by “Supergirl” cast members for weeks now. “Hercules” star Kevin Sorbo spilled the beans some time ago that his guest starring role would be as the king of a now-destroyed Kryptonian neighbor, and that Teri Hatcher would play his wife. When Hatcher uploaded a picture of herself being fitted for a costume, many were certain the two would play the king and queen of the dead world.
One of the show’s starring characters, Mon-El, played by Chris Wood, is a Daxamite refugee. Though the character has maintained he was a member of the Daxamite palace guard, recent events have suggested he may be closer to royalty than anyone could have guessed. A gang of aliens now pursue him for his secrets.
Airing weekly on the CW network at 8 p.m. on Mondays, "Supergirl" stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winn Schott, David Harewood as J'onn J'onzz and Chris Wood as Mon-El.
