Looks like James Olson will be getting in on the action this season on Supergirl. Mehcad Brooks, who plays Jimmy, revealed a first look of his character as the superhero “Guardian”. Mehcad captioned the photo, ” Hello world. #guardian #james olsen #supergirl #cw”.
Here’s what producers had to say on the reveal,
“James Olsen takes on the mantle of the classic DC Comics hero, Guardian. With his trademark shield intact, James will fight to protect National City alongside Supergirl.”
CW wasted no time with the reveal as it was just confirmed yesterday that James would be suiting up as well,
“James is going to decide that he can no longer sit back and be a sidekick. He’s going to decide to become a vigilante. He’s going to become Guardian, complete with the shield.”
What are your thoughts on Jimmy suiting up the second season? What do you think of his costume?
It appears CW is pulling no punches on this second season. The season 2 premiere scored the highest ratings in its time slot on The CW in 8 years.
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
