Italia Ricci (“Chasing Life”) has scored the role of Siobhan Smythe, aka DC super villain Silver Banshee, in CBS’ “Supergirl” TV series says ET.
The character will make her debut as a nemesis at Kara’s workplace CatCo, and will soon start bothering Supergirl on the streets of National City as well. This show’s version is inspired by the New 52 take, one who ultimately befriended Supergirl.
The casting comes as Kreisberg has once again shot down reports of a crossover between “The Flash” and “Supergirl,” telling THR:
“There’s always those late nights, delirious, semi-high on pizza where you’re like, ‘You know what would be really cool? If …’. But right now there is no legitimate actual plan to bring [The Flash’s] Cisco [Carlos Valdes] onto Supergirl or to bring [Supergirl’s] Winn [Jeremy Jordan] onto Legends [of Tomorrow].
First of all, we don’t even know if we could, legally. And quite frankly, just making the Arrow-verse, which is what we call Legends, Flash and Arrow work and then making Supergirl work, it’s enough of a challenge without having to add a fourth player.”
“Supergirl” has at least two more episodes to air before the end of the year.
