We first saw the character in a candid set photo uploaded to Imgur last week, but now an official look at Supergirl’s Silver Banshee has been released. Courtesy of ET, check out Italia Ricci as the terrifying DC villain.
“We are so excited to be working with Italia,” Supergirl executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told 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.”
Siobhan Smythe (Silver Banshee’s alter ego) will make her debut this coming Monday, Feb. 22, in the episode “Truth, Justice and the American Way.” Though she will start off as a typical workplace nemesis for Kara, she will become “a more deadly foe for Supergirl” once she transforms.
Given that the set photo I mentioned before contained both Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist, it’s been speculated that Silver Banshee will be the villain that brings them together for their crossover episode. With her superhuman strength, speed, endurance, and powerful sonic screams, Silver Banshee could easily present a viable threat to both heroes, but time will tell if she ends up being another villain undeserving of a team up (#VandalSavage).
