Fans now have a first look at one of Supergirl‘s newest cast members, Jenna Dewan-Tatum as Lucy Lane.
Lucy is a character from the DC Comics and in the show will present a bit of a challenge for the budding romance between Kara and Jimmy Olsen (Mehcad Brooks). According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lucy is “as brash, funny and beautiful as her older sister Lois Lane. Lucy is strong, smart and successful in her own right.” She’s returning to town to right an old wrong, and we bet it has something to do with Olsen.
Check out the shot (and just feeeeel the tension) of Lucy Lane (Tatum), Jimmy Olsen(Brooks) and Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist) below:
Along with the new shot, Supergirl’ executive producer Ali Adler also talked to the site about how Lane’s arrival will affect Kara (Melissa Benoist).
“We hope to explore the history that Lucy has with James Olsen — or, as Lucy knows him, Jimmy Olsen,” Adler told EW. “I think we’re going to bring in her father. She not only plays a romantic foil with whatever Kara and James are brewing, but people will also be surprised that she’s really a woman’s woman. She and Kara develop their own friendship, too. We’re not just bringing her in to purposefully create tension. She serves a larger story drive.”
Supergirl flies to Monday October 26th at 8:30.
