SDCC 2015 – Peter Facinelli Cast as Maxwell Lord in ‘Supergirl’

Peter Facinelli Maxwell Lord

 

Peter Facinelli (of Twilight fame) will be playing DC Comics antagonist Maxwell Lord in CBS’ Supergirl.

Maxwell Lord is well known for his bad guy antics, but is widely known as the killer of Blue Beetle (Ted Korde) in the Infinite Crisis arc. He also controlled Superman into thinking his allies were his enemies, nearly beating Batman to death and going after Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman publicly kills Lord.

Lord appears in many other DC arcs, however, none that deal majorly with Supergirl. It will be interesting to see how he will be written in, or if it will be a one-episode deal like it was in Smallville.

Facinelli is also an interesting choice for the role. In the comics, Lord seems like a good cross between Archer and James Bond. Facinelli isn’t nearly as debonair looking.  I might have picked a different actor, but it also doesn’t seem like Supergirl is doing anything in the norm. And that is ok. What do you think of the casting?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon, and Breaking Bad are the best things to ever happen to me. I'm only a Three on MeowMeowBeenz. I really want to be a Four.
