Sons of Anarchy alum Chris Browning has been cast as the villain Reactron!

Chris Browning, probably best known as the character Gogo from the hit t.v. series Sons of Anarchy, has joined the cast for the upcoming Supergirl series on CBS. Browning will play Ben Krull, better known DC Comics readers as the villain Reactron. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he’ll appear in the third episode, and it could lead into a recurring role for the character!

In the comics, Reactron wears an armored suit powered by nuclear energy. I’m curious to see how they will present him to t.v. audiences. Will he have the full armor or will he be nuclear powered and wear a device to harness it much like Firestorm on CW’s The Flash?

The Hollywood Reporter also reports on the reason why Reatron shows up in National City.

Never able to defeat his rival, Krull has come to National City to get revenge on the Man of Steel by killing his cousin, Supergirl.

Supergirl premieres at 8:30 p.m. EST on October 26th, 2015 only on CBS. After then, it will air in it’s regular time slot of 8 p.m. on Mondays! Yup, you read that right! Supergirl will go up against Gotham on Monday nights, so get your DVRs ready!

The cast thus far:

  • Supergirl/ Kara Danvers/Kara Zor-El: Melissa Benoist
  • James Olsen: Mehcad Brooks
  • Fred Danvers: Dean Cain
  • Sylvia Danvers: Helen Slater
  • Alex Danvers: Chyler Leigh
  • Zor-El: Robert Grant
  • Alura Zor-El: Laura Benanti
  • Cat Grant: Calista Flockhart
  • Hank Henshaw: David Harewood
  • Ben Krull: Chris Browning

My love of comics started at the age of 5, when visions of mythic beings fought their way across my TV screen. Batman '66, Super Friends, Wonder Woman, and Superman '78 filled my early childhood with imagination and adventure. Soon enough I found the spinner rack! Batman, Justice League and DC's Who's Who kept me coming back for more. I've seen the death of hope, justice broken, a light extinguished, and a universe torn! A kingdom come, the lightning return, a triumph of evil and a multiverse reborn!
