Peter Facinelli Cast As Maxwell Lord on Supergirl


According to Deadline, Image and video hosting by TinyPicit looks like we got our first big bad for Supergirl in the form of Maxwell Lord which will be played by Peter Facinelli (Twilight).

On Supergirl, Lord is a green tech billionaire who enjoys a friendly rivalry with Cat Grant and is fascinated by Supergirl.

Supergirl EP Andrew Kreisberg said, “Greg [Berlanti], Ali [Adler] and I have been fans of Peter for years. We’re beyond thrilled to have him join us on Supergirl’s first adventures bringing the iconic Maxwell Lord to life.”

Can’t help but smile at this news as this was the main villain of Justice League: Mortal by George Miller. In that story we ended up getting a hypnotized Superman, could they take a bit of that idea and put it into Supergirl?

All in all it’s great to see a main villain for Supergirl to fight, so far we only knew she would go on a mission to round-up all the Kryptonian escapee’s, very much like Clark in Smallville Season 6.
