Owain Yeoman Might be the Next ‘Vartox’ in CBS’ Supergirl
CBS’ Supergirl might have found its Super-Villain ‘Vartox’.
io9 recently disclosed that ‘The Mentalist and ‘Extant’ star Owain Yeoman has been cast as the Vartox in the upcoming superhero series Supergirl.
Vartox is an iconic comic book character; most of the people are claiming that it is a Villain whereas the original report and text specify him as a hero. In the comic, Vartox is Superman’s friend but sometimes his rival too.
According to CBR’s description, Vartox is a villain who has been hiding for almost twelve years on planet Earth. After Supergirl enters Earth, Vartox wants to find her out and declare a war with her.
“Owain Yeoman plays longtime DC Comics villain Vartox, an alien convict, who has been hiding on Earth for the past twelve years. After Supergirl’s emergence on Earth, Vartox seeks her out to ascertain her identity and do battle with her.”
While nothing is assured, not even his place on the upcoming series, we cannot say for sure whether Vartox will be a super hero or a super villain in Supergirl.
The series by Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler is currently in the production and rumors are that it will be DC’s highest scale TV show.
Melissa Benoist will appear as the Supergirl alongside Calista Flockhart, Mehcad Brooks, Laura Benanti, Chyler Leigh, Jeremy Jordan.
