‘Supergirl’ Spins the Wheel on Dichen Lachman as DC’s Roulette
It remains to be seen if Supergirl Season 2 (her first on The CW) will correct any perceived stumbles of the first year, but its use of recognizable DC figures remains on point. Newest to enter Supergirl’s orbit is Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The 100 favorite Dichen Lachman, spinning the wheel in a role that should feel familiar to animated Justice League fans.
Where YVR Shoots first caught Lachman on the Vancouver set in some familiar garb, ComicBook.com confirmed that the former Dollhouse star will play DC’s Roulette, described in this reality as such:
Based on the classic DC Comics character, Roulette runs an underground alien fight club in National City and she is eager to get Supergirl in the ring.
Roulette has appeared in a variety of media outside of comics, including Smallville (played by Steph Song), and the animated Justice League, voiced by Virginia Madsen. In all cases, the character is frequently seen as a ringleader of superhuman fight clubs.
Elsewhere, in addition to the introduction of Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman, Lynda Carter’s POTUS, Floriana Lima as Maggie Sawyer and Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor, Supergirl Season 2 has cast several notable roles that include Metallo, Cat Grant’s pseudo-replacement Snapper Carr, Sharon Leal as Miss Martian and Chris Wood as pod occupant Mon-El. Still is how the Maiden of Might ends up in a musical, or that epic four-way superhero crossover.
Supergirl has plenty other wares to hawk on the road to Season 2's October 10 premiere, but check out the first photos and footage below.
