Sam Witwer Joins Supergirl As Agent Liberty

Sam Witwer, who portrayed Doomsday in the eighth Season of Smallville, is returning to the live-action side of the DC Universe once again. The actor has joined the cast of Supergirl ahead of Season 4 in the series regular role of Agent Liberty.

In the show, Agent Liberty is the ruthless and terrifying founder and figurehead of Children of Liberty, a hate group that supports a human-first world order. According to a description from the show’s producers, he’s “a brilliant orator in the guise of a family man” and the scariest thing about him is how easily he can convince people that he’s right. Given that Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and the DEO tend to be pro-alien integration, it’s definitely fair to assume they won’t get along with Agent Liberty and his Children of Liberty.

Witwer  is the latest Smallville alum to join the hit DC Entertainment drama. Erica Durance, who played Lois Lane for seven seasons, recurs as Kara’s mother Alura Zor-El, and Laura Vandervoort, who played Supergirl on Smallville, guest-starred as Indigo back in Season 1.

Supergirl returns Sunday, October 14th at 8pm.

Frak Yeah! New Battlestar Galactica Comic Incoming

Dynamite Entertainment has announced a brand new Battlestar Galactica series.

Hailing from Star Wars author John Jackson Miller and Red Sonja artist Daniel HDR, the new miniseries is set to arrive in time for the brands 40th anniversary later this year.

"Forty years ago this fall, tens of millions of people watched the original Battlestar Galactica pilot and TV series, which inspired interest in BSG comics, models, and toys that’s endured ever since. I was one of those kids in the audience every night — and it’s a delight to get to tell a story set in the original Galactica universe, set soon after the events of the first season," said author John Jackson Miller.

In the new series,  Commander Adama and the remnants of humanity discover a second fugitive fleet, fleeing a different mortal enemy. Can the two armadas join forces, making common cause against the dreaded Cylons? And what would success mean for the quest for Earth?

"Battlestar Galactica often grappled with a single strategic tension: run, or turn and fight? That question inspired one of the series best-loved episodes, in which another surviving Battlestar was discovered," adds John Jackson Miller. "Our Counterstrike series goes a step farther, as the Galactica officers discover another fugitive fleet, much like theirs, running from a mortal enemy. Could making common cause solve both their problems?"

Dynamite Entertainment has been developing Battlestar Galactica comic books since 2006, with the most recent one being Peter David's excellent Battlestar Galactica vs. Battlestar Galactica.

Battlestar Galactica #0 flies into comic shops this October.
