A new villain is about to cross paths with the Girl Of Steel, that being Silver Banshee and she will be played by Italia Ricci. Banshee, also known as Siobhan Smythe will debut in episode 14 during the show’s freshman season according to ComicBookResources.com.
“We are so excited to be working with Italia,” Supergirl executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said in a statement. “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 was created by comics legend John Byrne, and first appeared in 1987’s “Action Comics” #595. As the name implies, the character’s powers include a hypersonic scream, along with super-strength and super-speed.
Supergirl airs 8 p.m. Mondays on CBS, and has two new episodes left — airing Dec. 7 and Dec. 14 — before a winter break, and the newly ordered “back 7” batch of episodes will air after the new year.
Does this help to improve the show? What do you think about Italia Ricci in this series? Will Silver Banshee make for a good villain?
